8 days from Hong Kong to Siem Reap -- where to spend them?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will arrive in Hong Kong late in the evening on Saturday, 3/14 and are scheduled to embark on the AMALotus in Siem Reap for a cruise down the Tonle Sap and Mekong on Monday, 3/23. This is our first ever time to Southeast Asia!

We're debating what to do In those 8 unscheduled days, given that:
This is likely to be our only trip to this area of the world for a while.
We like culture and history; we enjoy being out and about walking and sightseeing, but don't want to have too crazy and jam-packed of a schedule.
We know we want to get to Siem Reap at least a couple of days before the cruise departs to see Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, and possibly some of the other temples.

If we spend 2-3 days in Siem Reap before the cruise, we have about 4-5 days to get from Hong Kong to Siem Reap.

How would you spend those days?
-- stay in Hong Kong the whole time?
-- or split the time between some combination of Hong Kong, Ha Long Bay, and Hanoi?

Thanks!
