    Well, you're not going to see it all in 5-6 weeks, so you will need to prioritise. And that comes down to what interests you - beaches, trekking, temples, cities, rural communities...??

    I suggest you scan through the suggested itineraries here:
    and see what grabs your interest.

    Having said that, I had a great 6-week trip a few years ago in Thailand and Cambodia. I would suggest maybe four weeks in Thailand (Bkk, Kachanburi, Chiang Mai, southern islands) and two weeks in Cambodia (Siem Reap, Phnom Penh, Kep or Kampot).

    But read through the itineraries and see what grabs your attentipn. Work that out first, that you can start worrying about accom options, etc.

    If you're only going for 6 weeks and you're set on going to Thailand, then I would pair that up with either Cambodia or Laos. Thailand and Vietnam is probably too much in that timeframe, travel and sights wise.

    Sorry to hear you've lost your job but, on the flip side, could you potentially extend your stay by a few weeks? If it's cash you're worried about, then don't be because in some ways the longer you go the less you spend (within reason). Less flights, spending longer in places, getting to know where is cheap etc all contribute to reducing your outlay and increasing the enjoyment of your stay.

    In 11-12 weeks I reckon you could see all 4 of those countries very well without having to take a single flight. You will need more than you would for 5-6 weeks for sure but you also will not need twice as much!!
