    Hi bpattu,

    If you were to break that up into something like :
    Cambodia 1 week
    Vietnam 2 weeks
    Laos 1 week

    Then you could travel by train up the Vn coast, hitting the mainstays -- so Saigon, Nha Trang, Da Nang, Hue and Hanoi. Timewise, it will be worth considering then taking a flight from Hanoi to Luang Prabang in Laos and then working either north or south depending on where you want to go.

    Vietnam, about US$15 a day is a good basic budget, a little less if you don't travel too much.

    Hope that helps
