    Hi, planning my first 'big' trip for next November-December. can only take limited time off work. planned to go to Laos-Cambodia-Vietnam but realised it'll be too much. looks like ill have about 5-6 weeks. would like to visit places below and end on a sunny island (Phu Coc or one of the thai islands?).
    not sure logistically what's the best rout - and if im still trying to do too much. going to fly in/out of Bangkok, can fly some routes along the way....should i combine both Vietnam and Cambodia?

    Cambodia

    Kratie
    Phnom Penh
    Siem Reap
    Battambang

    Vietnam

    
Sapa
    Hanoi
    Cuc Phuong National Park?
    
Ha Long Bay
    Hue 
Hoi An
    Nha Trang
    Mui Ne
    Dalat ?
    Ho chi minh
    The Mekong Delta
    Phu Coc Island / Or thai island?

    thank you!

    Hi Noakess!

    Last year I travelled through Vietnam & Cambodia comfortably in 6 weeks. Maybe the most logical route is to catch a cheap flight to Hanoi (AirAsia.com), work your way South through Vietnam then West through Cambodia & back into Thailand.

    I think you've got a good itinerary going but you might wanna cut down on some stops so you spend more time having fun & less time on buses! Nha Trang, for example, is good fun but it's a bit of a drunken backpacker hangout, you might wanna edit it out if it's not your scene (if I have to be brutal, I would cut Hue, Dalat, Mui Ne & the Mekong Delta too unless you have a decent amount of time to appreciate each one or have a particular penchant for them, but that's strictly my personal taste - read through the entries here on Travelfish, they'll give you a feel of whether you'll like a place or not!).

    Have a great time & take care!
