From Bangkok we're flying straight to Chiang Rai for an overnight stay in Chiang Khong. Long boat to LP for a couple of days, bus to Vang Vieng for 1 nite to go tubing (3 x 40yo's should be laugh!) & then on to Vientiane for a day or 2. Flying to Pakse & on to Don Det for 2 days before flying to Siem Reap. Does this sound do-able? We're allowing 10 days in Laos, 5 in Cambodia & 13 in Vietnam. I know its pretty rushed but would like a 'heads up' on what to see or miss on our trip.
Thanks in anticipation
