    Hey guys, thanks for taking a sec to read.

    I am flying into Bangkok arriving on the evening of 5th July, and flying out of Bangkok on the morning of 1st August. This is my first time doing any travelling of this sort.

    I want to see as much/many of the 4 countries as I can but I've been told that I need to be realistic with my time or I'll just feel rushed all the time and not enjoy anything.

    Therefore as I only have 26 full days I am thinking of just doing 2/3 countries.

    Have no detailed plans as of yet so just wondering what you seasoned travellers would broadly recommend?

    Many thanks

    You don't mention which 4 countries you wish to see.

    Also, let us know a bit more about what may interest you. Do you like cities, beaches, partying, treking, culture, temples.....???? Will you fly between places, or go by bus/train ?

    Sorry I meant Thailand Cambodia Laos and Vietnam...

    I am 25 so I will want to do beaches / watersports / parties etc. I will also want to see plenty of scenery and culture/temples, but I am not particularly crazy about very long hikes / very difficult terrain.

    I will go by plane where possible/sensible I would imagine.

    That only gives you a week in each country. Not really ideal. I suggest you chose 2 that most interest you and concentrate on those.

    Agree with yogakhaolak.

    Sounds like you'll spend a fair bit of time on Thai islands. You could also go north in Thailand, perhaps into Laos if that appeals. Trying to do more would be counter-productive.

    Do some more research, see what appeals and come back if you have more questions.
