I think you should fly to Hanoi, then fly to HCMC and travel Nha Trang will be better.

While I don't know your preferences, I would suggest that just one day for Siem Reap seems not enough.

A couple of thoughts:

I'd consider dropping either Cambodia or Nha Trang as otherwise you'll need to fly all the legs to fit this in with any comfort.

*) Your closest airport will be Saigon, from where you can get a connecting flight to Nha Trang.
*) Then fly Nha Trang to Da Nang and backtrack to Hoi An
*) Four days to cover Hoi An, Hue and Bach Ma is pretty much not possible, especially once you factor in travel times. Pick Hoi An or Hue & Bach Ma.
*) Fly onwards to Hanoi

Some of this you could do by overnight trains rather than flights (eg Saigon to Da Nang and Da Nang to Hanoi) but I really think look at skipping at least some of it.
