    Hello there..I am planning my first backpack trip to SE asia this april. I am planning to go for 2 months. Im thinking about

    1.thailand (4 weeks)
    2-3 days bangkok
    3-4 days chiang mai
    5-6 co phi phi
    not sure about the rest.....maybe u got a few good suggestions..id like to see nature, temples etc.

    2.laos (1 week) (luang prabang)
    3.cambodia (1 week) (angkor wat not sure what else)
    4.vietnam (2 weeks) (hochi ming-hanoi and northwest vietnam)

    my question is. is this trip possible in 2 months time or will i be too often on the road. maybe u got a good suggestions for me. do u think the time i assigned to each area is good?

    You''ll be on the road a lot.

    4 weeks Thailand is fine. 4 weeks for the rest seems too ambitious if you plan to do all overland.

    I would suggest to choose between 3 alternatives:
    - end your Thailand time in the north, visit Luang Prabang and northern Vietnam
    - end your Thailand time in center or east, visit Cambodia and southern Vietnam
    - visit Thailand then Laos and Cambodia and make a sort of loop.

    Vietnam is a huge country and two weeks is too short to cross the whole country without flying.
    Given your interest I'd say go for option 3.

    good luck.
