I'm not a fan of Can Tho - the VERY LARGE city in the Delta - there are much nicer destinations in that area.
I would personally skip Cambodia since you have overlooked several good places in Vietnam (Sapa and Dalat come to mind).
I presume there are reasons why you want to go to each place. So it's hard to comment. With three weeks I would pick one country. You don't specify your APOD but I would assume it's BKK. Doing the entry in one place, exit in another makes sense when you have months to slowly transit a region. It makes no sense in my mind when you have three weeks. Unless you have very specific places you want to see for a reason - which again I am assuming is your case. So given the paucity of information about that subject, it's tough to comment on.
I wouldn't think you need to spend that long in Angor Wat, possibly cut it down to two days and have an extra day somewhere else. Maybe you could spend more time in HCMC that way? I also wouldn't recommend spending too long in Bangkok, there are so many more beautiful places in Thailand, such as the Phi Phi islands. This is quite a good itinerary to get some ideas from: http://www.holiday-n-adventure.co.uk/thailand-tours/thailand-vietnam-laos-cambodia-itinerary.htm
