Hello Fellow Travelers,

My name is Cynthia. Itravel during my summer break vacation. I am a school teacher so I can only travel within a certain period oftime. I predominately travel on a time constraint. I still enjoy myself, but it can berushed. However, I get to enjoy theadventurous side of exploring as a backpacker regardless!

I want to post my itinerary to get feedback from those thathave possibly explored the same or similar route.
Length of time: 5weeks
-I arrive in Ho ChiMinh City at 10:40 pm(not counting this day) and will stay for 5 days
-busing it from HCMC to PhnomPenh (staying 2 days)
Is there a night busI can catch? I would like to arriveearly enough in Phnom Penh to enjoy a full day. As I research, it seems asthough boarders close at 5pm and busses run from 6/7-5pm.
-busing it from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap , I am staying for 3days , but might only stay for 2(unsure)
-flying/busing from Siem Reap to Bangkok (staying 3 days)
I might be forced tofly so that I do not miss a full day in the capital. (I have left a full day totravel). Is there a night bus?
From Bangkok, I will head north
-Sukhothai- 1night -Chiang Mai- 3 nights -Pai-3 nights - Chiang Rai -3 nights

Can I take an early bus to these towns to enjoy a full dayonce I arrive? Or are there night buses?

From Chiang Rai intoLaos
Luang Prang(leavingone day for travel) -3 nights
Vang Vieng- 3 nights
Vientiane - 2 nights
bus/fly(probably fly) from Vientiane to Hanoi (last stop)
Hanoi- 5 nights
I know this a a lot. Last year, I explored Central America from Belize-Nicaragua (Leon)
