    Hi everyone,

    I will be spending the first three weeks of Nov. in SEA and while I have cut a lot, here is what I am thinking. I will be flying to save time. All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Arrive Hanoi Nov. 1
    Nov 2 Hanoi
    Nov 3 Hanoi
    Nov 4 Halong Bay
    Nov 5 Fly to Da Nang to Hoi An
    Nov 6 Hoi An
    Nov 7 Hoi An, Fly out to HCMC work way to Can Tho
    Nov 8 Can Tho
    Nov 9 Can Tho
    Nov 10 Fly to Cambodia or do Chau Doc crossing on boat to Siem Rep
    Nov 11 Angor Wat
    Nov 12 Angor Wat
    Nov 13 Angor Wat
    Nov 14 Morning Fly to Thailand
    Nov 14 - 20 in Bangkok and Chiang Mai

    I am a single woman, who has traveled solo before but any suggestions and thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not a fan of Can Tho - the VERY LARGE city in the Delta - there are much nicer destinations in that area.

    I would personally skip Cambodia since you have overlooked several good places in Vietnam (Sapa and Dalat come to mind).

    I presume there are reasons why you want to go to each place. So it's hard to comment. With three weeks I would pick one country. You don't specify your APOD but I would assume it's BKK. Doing the entry in one place, exit in another makes sense when you have months to slowly transit a region. It makes no sense in my mind when you have three weeks. Unless you have very specific places you want to see for a reason - which again I am assuming is your case. So given the paucity of information about that subject, it's tough to comment on.

    I wouldn't think you need to spend that long in Angor Wat, possibly cut it down to two days and have an extra day somewhere else. Maybe you could spend more time in HCMC that way? I also wouldn't recommend spending too long in Bangkok, there are so many more beautiful places in Thailand, such as the Phi Phi islands. This is quite a good itinerary to get some ideas from:
