    Hello all. I was hoping to grab some advice on an 8 day trip from Phnom Penh to Saigon. Although I would like to see Siem Reap I think most would say it is too much travel. I fly into Phnom Penh and fly out of Saigon.

    What would be an ideal route and sites to see that would maximize my trip and avoid spending too much time on a bus?

    Much appreciated!

    Assuming you actually want to see PP and Saigon properly, and including travel time through the Mekong Delta, then you don't really have time for much else.

    2 or 3 days in PP will cover a lot of the must sees and the same for Saigon.

    In terms of a route through the Delta I can't really help you but there are some on here who can. If you feel tight for time then an organised tour is an option.

    I assume you have 8 days between flights and not 8 days for trip between

    Kampot, Ha Tien, Can Tho?

    There is a boat trip from PP to Vietnam It's still an hour or more on the bus from PP to get to the boat (all included in the price). It's a great trip and you arrive at Con Tho in Vietnam. On to Chau Doc for the floating market and then Saigon
