    Hi all,

    I need some help with organizing a backpacking trip in 2010 ... we will spend 19 days in Thailand (12)/Laos(3)/Cambodia(4)
    Can anyone help me with a making a route plan? Basically it has to look like this:
    - 3 days in Bangkok
    - 3 days in some beach area (Thailand)
    - Luang Prabang and Vientiane
    - Angkor Vat and Phnom Phen
    The main idea would be to have some fluid itineray, which should cover all of the above mentioned points
    Arrival/departure is Bangkok

    Thanks a million!

    I'd say it isn't really practical to visit Luang Prabang and Vientiane in three days -- pick one or the other. Most would suggest LP over VTE.

    Three days on a beach out of Bangkok, Ko Samet is the best fit.

    Four days for Phnom Penh and Siem Reap is also a bit of a push.

    I'd suggest shaving some of your 12 days off Thailand and giving say 3 more days to Laos and 2 more to Cambodia. That will allow you to do all what you've suggested, but you'll prob need to fly in/out of Laos and at least into Phnom Penh, as otherwise you'll lose too much time to travel.

    Hope that helps.
