Arghhhh my eyes ;) caps lock - kidding.

I don't think there's any best way to do this trip but my husband and I are doing much the same entirely overland soon. We are starting out in Bangkok - Chiang Mai - Luang Prabang - Hanoi - Halong Bay - Hoi An - Nah Trang - Saigon - PP - Siem Reap - Koh Chang and are doing the trip entirely overland for around six weeks. I know it's going to be pretty hectic but so looking forward to it.

I guess the only advice I can give is to try to avoid backtracking on yourself too much. Hope you have a great trip.

My dad + mum did the trip from Chiang Mai - Luang Prabang - Hanoi overland and it took them a full 4 weeks. They said it was madness, and they should have taken longer coz the roads in nth Vietnam were disasters.

If you can afford it take advantage of some cheap flights....Air Asia was worth it...flights tues-thur are really cheap.
