My December SE ASIA Trip

Posted by calistyle on 16/10/2012 at 13:23

I'm flying from NYC to Hanoi .

10 hour layover in Hong Kong- Gonna try to at least check out Victoria Harbour and a few things.

12/18-Spend the night in Hanoi.

12/19-Transport to Halong Bay

12/20-Sleeper-Train from Hanoi to Danang, then head to Hoi An for a day.

12/22-Sleeper-Train to Saigon...Possibly stop in Mui Ne for some kitesurfing??

12/24-Train/Bus to Phnom Penh

12/26-Speedboat to Siem Reap

12/28-Bus to Battambang

12/29-Bus to Bangkok

12/31-Flight to Surat Thani, then bus/boat to Koh Samui, the Full Moon Party in Koh Phagan

1/2-Bus/Boat to Phuket

1/6-Flight to Bangkok

1/8-Flight to NYC


I know it's rushed! But that's the way I have been accustomed to traveling. I enjoy a fast pace and covering a lot of ground. I can always come back again if I want to revisit any of the places I didn't get to spend enough time at.

The only part of this itinerary that is confirmed are the flights.


Are there any places I CAN'T afford to miss along the way?

Are they any places that I CAN afford to miss??


Any and ALL advice or recommendations would be highly appreciated!!

After doing a bit more research, flights seem more practical for these routes:

-Hanoi to Danang

-Danang to HCMC

-Phnom Penh to Siem Reap

-Siem Reap to Bangkok

It should cost roughly $200 more but take maybe 20 hours off my travel time??..which would be very necessary with this itinerary...

Thoughts?
