I know it's rushed! But that's the way I have been accustomed to traveling. I enjoy a fast pace and covering a lot of ground. I can always come back again if I want to revisit any of the places I didn't get to spend enough time at.
The only part of this itinerary that is confirmed are the flights.
Are there any places I CAN'T afford to miss along the way?
Are they any places that I CAN afford to miss??
Any and ALL advice or recommendations would be highly appreciated!!

After doing a bit more research, flights seem more practical for these routes:
-Hanoi to Danang
-Danang to HCMC
-Phnom Penh to Siem Reap
-Siem Reap to Bangkok
It should cost roughly $200 more but take maybe 20 hours off my travel time??..which would be very necessary with this itinerary...
