    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?
