    What is the easiest way to get from Hoi An to Siem Reap during January?

    I am assuming there is a place to cross into Laos and then into Cambodia?

    What do you suggest?

    Easiest way overland will be via Saigon -- will def. be faster than going via Laos. Can also fly -- Da Nang to Saigon and then to Siem Reap -- depends on your budget and how much time you have up your sleeve.

    See the Visa and border crossing FAQ for info on individual border crossings.

    *Hoi An→Attapeu or Pakse in Laos----within 1 day by bus possible.

    *Da Nang→Ngoc Hoi (in Central Highlands of Vietnam)---about 4 hours by express bus.

    I'm also interested in doing a similar thing... going through Laos before going through Vietnam (Hoi an southwards) before going through Cambodia and back to Thailand (where I am starting). Just posting on here to bookmark it for later :)
