    OK....I need loads of advice.

    Im a total newb at travelling.
    I am visting SE Asia in August for 5 Weeks.
    In that time I would like to visit Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
    Is this too much to fit in to 5 weeks?

    I am planning to start in Bangkok and make my way to Siem Reap. Is there anything to see between these two?? If so how long should I plan to get to Siem Reap from Bangkok.

    I want to visit Phonm Penh and make my way down to Ho Chi Minh City. I then plan to travel up the coast to Hanoi and make my way back to Bangkok.

    My budget is not great so I am a bit concerned about getting from Hanoi back to Bangkok for my flight.

    I know this is very vague but I would just like an idea if this is good route to take.

    My idea is 2 weeks in Thailand (first and last)
    With 3 weeks in Cambodia and Vietnam.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks.

    The last bit (getting from Hanoi to Bangkok) is easy ...Air Asia. Three flights a day and fares as low as $50 including taxes. http://www.airasia.com/site/th/en/home.jsp

    It takes a day to get from Bangkok to Siem Reap (via Poipet)and there's not a lot to see en route.
    Detailed instructions on how to get there on Tales of Asia.

    Sorry can;t help with the Vietnam bit.

    You'll also find a blow by blow report on SiemReap to Bangkok here.

    For general trip advice, see the suggested itineraries section for a starting point.
