Vietnam/Cambodia April 10 - any comments please

Posted by jasinorbit on 8/3/2010 at 10:32


We are doing this trip in April, and we are flying a couple of legs to save time. (Hanoi - Phu Quoc)(PQ - HCMC). After reading the old posts about travel to Cambodia via Mekong Delta, Im thinking I should leave three days for this, instead of two. Any advice on what you would change. (one less day in Sapa maybe?) Any comments you have would be helpful. Thanks!
