Iâ€™m looking for some advice. Iâ€™m off to Bangkok in Augustfor 3 weeks. I am planning a week going round the islands in the south. Thatleaves me with 2 weeks left to explore. I have narrowed it down to a couple ofoptions â€“ I would just like peoples advice on which one they think isbetter/any issues I may have/am I trying to do too much.
Option 1 â€“ From Bangkok head to Chaing Mai to go jungle trekking.Then head back down to Bangkok through the ancient capitals
Option 2 â€“Head to seim Reap, Phenom Phen (maybe HCM city ifI have time) then get an internal flight back to Bangkok.
Thanks in advance

I'd go with option two.

I find it easy to spend 2 weeks doing beaches and 1 week in Bangkok.

Edupec looks more like an ad than a recommendation
You need to make a decision about temples/jungle/big city but going to HCM looks like a destination too far so decide between Thailand and Cambodia. If you go to Cambodia and want a bit of jungle as well as Siem Reap why not visit somewhere like Chi Phat (http://www.ecoadventurecambodia.com/)
you could do this as a part of a circular trip of Cambodia and in terms of geography the islands like Ko Chang might fit better
Thanks for the advice? Is it easy to get to Chi Phat (or other Jungle Treking areas) without going via PP?

Chi Phat is on the way to Koh Kong on the Thai border and can be reached from Phnom Phen or Sianoukeville by direct bus (to Koh Kong)
My thinking is that you could enter cambodia via Trat and HatLek/Koh kong, visit chi phat go on to Phnom Phen (only cause you mentioned it) and then on to Siem Reap perhaps with a stop on the way depending on time and then back to Bangkok or do the trip in reverse
