Saigon-Hanoi via Cambodia/Laos-itinerary advice please!

Posted by ugogrrrl on 6/12/2011 at 12:00

I am going to be flying into HCMC and out of Hanoi, traveling for a month between late Jan-Feb 2012. I was thinking about spending 5 days in/around HCMC, traveling via the Mekong to Phnom Penh spend a few days there, then PP to Sihanoukville for a few days of snorkelling/ beach. Then Siem Reap-Luang Prabang, then on to Hanoi-Ha Long Bay, and possibly Sa Pa. Is this itinerary too ambitious for one month? I was thinking about flying from Siem Reap-Luang Prabang-Hanoi.
I am more about chilling and taking in the culture vs. rushing around to lots of historical sites. Any other places on that route to consider? Ideas for great places to stay?
I am a woman in my 40's traveling solo on a budget, if that makes a difference.

Thanks so much for your advice.
