Help with 2-wk itinerary in Laos and Cambodia

Posted by syzafar on 15/4/2007 at 23:35

Hi all,

i've read the posts, features, and suggested itineraries...now let's see how my itinerary holds up. any help is much appreciated:

day 1 - fly from bangkok to luang prabang
day 2 - luang prabang
day 3 - luang prabang
day 4 - boat to Muang Ngoi
day 5 - Muang Ngoi
day 6 - Muang Ngoi
day 7 - back to Luang Prabang via Nong Kiaow
day 8 - fly from Luang Prabang to Vientiane
day 9 - Vientiane
day 10 - Vientiane
day 11 - fly from Vientiane to Siem Reap
day 12 - Siem Reap
day 13 - Siem Reap
day 14 - Siem Reap to Phnom Penh by boat
day 15 - fly from Phnom Penh to Bangkok

cramped, i know. here are the places we left out that we though long and hard about: Huay Xai, Pakbeng, Gibbon X, more time in Phnom Pehn, Kep and Kampot.

you think we should adjust the itinerary to add these places? what should we drop?

thanks very much!

Hi syzafar,

Looks good -- for a shortish trip like this I think you've made the right decision in using a few flights to save time.

My only comment would be that you've got next to no time in Phnom Penh -- if you're going there to pick up the morning AirAsia flight to Bangkok, bear in mind it leaves early in the morning, so at most you'll only have a half day in PP -- perhaps shave one day off elsewhere, perhaps from Vientiane.

Hope that helps!
