    I am planning my trip to Vietnam and cambodia for this coming November. At the moment my itinerary based on North going to South ( from Hanoi, we will travel to Ho Chi Minh, and then cross border to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap and then take plane from SR to bangkok before we are flying back home to Melbourne)

    However, as I am wondering would it be easier and cheaper if I go from Siem reap to Phnom Penh and then cross border to HCM and going north. And from Hanoi take plane to Bangkok.

    Is airfare from Hanoi to Bangkok is so much more expensive than airfare from Siem Reap to Bangkok?

    Of course I made assumption that the travel cost from North to South Vietnam would be very similar to travelling cost going from South to North. Am i right?

    yes, you're right -- the only main differential is the BKK to Hanoi Vs Bkk to Siem Reap airfare. The former, flying with AirAsia is generally considerably cheaper than BKK to SR.
