    Hey everyone

    flying to Cambodia in April for 5 weeks and just wondering how I should spend my time. That is should I just explore Cambodia or should I try and spend some time in Laos.

    I can always come back to Laos at some time in the near future, so would it be worthwhile just focusing on Cambodia or is 5 weeks too long?

    I have checked the suggested itineraries already so have a pretty good idea of where to go and what to see. Just thinking of the time.

    All suggestions appreciated.

    Hi Dammien,

    Five weeks is a good spread of time to spend in Cambodia -- given you'll need to do a visa run, I'd lean towards popping over to Southern Laos to have a poke around the 4,000 islands and perhaps Wat Phu.

    Thanks for that! Have had a look and 4000 Islands looks like it could be a nice place to chill out for a bit. Great site by the way, could spend hours on here (Actually, already have...) Cheers!
