I'm hoping to see some of Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand over 4 or 5 weeks in December, but want to know if it's do-able? ANy suggetions on what CAN'T be missed and what I can leave out, the best route to take...etc would be great!

If you haven't already, take a look at the suggested itinerary section as that should give you an idea of what is and isn't feasible to cover in four-five weeks.

We did the arc from Hanoi to Hue to Hoi An to HCMC to Phnom Penh to Siem Reap to Bangkok pretty comfortably in three weeks, with a couple of diversions along the way. We took a mix of flights, buses, trains and boats. If you are short of time, trying flying between the key places you want to go - internal flights are quite reasonably priced if you book them when you get there.
Siem Reap is certainly not to be missed - allow 2-3 days. Halong Bay is brilliant too - take a really good tour like Handspan and the hospitality is almost as good as the bay. If you are into modern history, Phnom Penh is absolutely mindblowing, but read up before you go. Kanchanaburi in Thailand is also great for WW2 history. Finally, Hoi An is a great place to just chill out, with plenty of great cheap food and drink any time you have there will be well spent.
