    Hey guys

    Me and my friend are travelling to Vietnam and Cambodia for the whole of July. Were 20 and havent been to SE asia before and were hoping we could get some itinerary tips!

    We havent made any bookings except for our flight into Hanoi on the 1st and out of Siem Reap on the 28th. Please post if were making any rookie mistakes.


    1. Arriving in Hanoi for 2-3 nights

    2. Halong bay/Cat Ba island for 2 nights

    3. Sapa for 1-2 nights

    Fly to Hue

    4. 1-2 nights in Hue

    5. 2-3 nights in Hoi An

    6. 3-4 nights in Nha Trang

    Fly or train to Saigon

    7. 2-3 nights in Saigon

    8. 3 nights on Mekong - Can tho, Chau Doc

    Boat to Phnom Penh

    9. 2-3 nights in PP

    10. Sihanoukville? Sen Monorom?

    11. 2-3 nights in Siem Reap.

    Our main query is whether we should try and spend more time in Vietnam or if we should get the most out our foray into Cambodia? I have read Sen monorom is great for experiencing elephants if you dont have time for thailand but the beaches and islands around sihanoukville look amazing. Are they better than the ones in Vietnam or just more of the same?


    Thanks for your help! :)
