3 weeks in South-East Asia... what to do?

Jump to last reply

I'm taking a trip from March 2nd to March 24th, either planning on flying in to Ho Chi Minh city or Bangkok, then make my way down to Singapore and stop for 2-3 days in Tokyo on my way back to San Diego (as it didn't cost any extra to stop in Tokyo).

I've travelled from Hanoi to Bangkok before (about 10 years ago). Does anyone have any "must sees" from Bangkok to Singapore? Any thoughts on if I should fly into Ho Chi Minh city as opposed to Bangkok (this will subsequently give me less time for the Bangkok - Singapore traveling.

Also, with regards to Tokyo, is 2-3 days way too little? I just want to get a feeling for the city and see a few things.

With regards to the entire trip and my style, I love seeing off the beaten path type of stuff, a hole in the wall restaurant where all the locals eat, a great market or street food area, cool day trips or 2-3 day excursion trips (I did a 3 day trekking excursion in Sapa, Vietnam 10 years ago and it was amazing).

Any pointers, suggestions and overall help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
