I will have 10 days in SE Asia (starting from Bangkok at the beginning of September) on my way home from India. There is way too much that I want to do, so I was wondering if anyone has any strong feelings about anything in particular. I know of course it depends on what I want to do, but I want to do it all, and I am bad at decision making. I think I'd like to see Angkor Wat and ???? One other place. What seems possible in 10 days? I have already spent time on the southern islands in Thailand. Recommendations, please!

Welcome to Travelfish!
Well, if you were here anytime other than September, I'd say Ko Chang on the way back from Angkor, but given it will be pretty wet, why not head in the opposite direction perhaps to Kanchanaburi and Sangkhlaburi? The latter in particular is a personal fave in Thailand... takes a little while to get to, but is a top spot to put the feet back and relax.
I'd normally recommend Ayutthaya, but I'm afraid it might not be worth the effort if you are visiting Angkor Wat. Kanchanaburi is an excellent suggestion, and depending on how much time you'll spend in Siem Reap, just hanging out in Bangkok for several days could be lots of fun too. I can usually kill a week there just getting massages and visiting my favorite restaurants. Regards.
