    I know this trip may seem a little rushed, but we only have 2 weeks and want to hit a few spots in Thailand and Vietnam. Here is what I've come up with so far:

    Day1 Fly to Bangkok
    Day2 Bangkok
    Day3 Go to Ko Chang
    Day4 Ko Chang
    Day5 Ko Chang
    Day6 Fly to Hanoi
    Day7 Hanoi
    Day8 HoLang Bay
    Day9 HoLang Bay
    Day10 Hanoi
    Day11 HCMC
    Day12 Go to Mekong Delta
    Day13 Mekong Delta
    Day14 HCMC
    Day15 Fly out of HCMC

    Does this look doable? Insane? Any opinions/suggestions welcome. We have done many trips that may seem rushed to others and enjoyed them. However, I want to make sure we don't spend most of our time travelling and little time chilling and relaxing.

    It's probably a little insane, but I've seen far worse! :-)

    If you were willing to forgo Ko Chang, I'd suggest skipping Thailand totally and getting your island time on Phu Quoc in Vietnam -- a far better destination in my opinion.

    Otherwise, the other point that jumps out is flying down to Saigon just to spend one day there and one day in the Delta -- seems a long way to go for a daytrip.

    Actually a friend of mine recommends Ko Phi Phi or Ko Samui instead of Ko Chang.
    In Saigon I was planning to spend 2 days roughly as well as 2 days in the Mekong probably on an organized tour.
