A very complicate itinerary

Jump to last reply

So I'll be traveling to southeast Asia in July-Aug for 40 full days.

My travel dates are: arriving 19 July and leaving 29 in and out Bangkok.

So besides that, I have bought flights to Burma leaving 4 August from Bangkok to Yangon, and leaving Mandalay 13 August to Bangkok.

That leaves me ~15days before and ~15 days after Burma.
So: 2x 15 days knowing I'll have to be in Bangkok the first and last days.

So I am a bit confused how to spend that days, I have some routes and I would like some input about them:

1.BKK flight to Hanoi - Hanoi - Sapa - Halong bay - Ninh Binh area - Hanoi flight to BKK

2.BKK flight to Hanoi - Hanoi - Sapa - Ninh Binh area - Hoi an/ Hue - HCMC flight to BKK

3.BKK - Chiang Mai - slow boat - LP - NK - VV - Vientiane - BKK

4.BKK - Khao Sok - Krabi - flight to Siem Reap - SR - BKK

I can choose 2 routes knowing some will be more challenging than others. I'm having a difficult time deciding and would like opinions on which could complement better my itinerary knowing I want to have a mix of culture + nature.

The places I would like to see the most are Hanoi, Angkor Wat, Ninh Binh area and Sapa , LP and Khao Sok NP. But I know I don't have time to see them all so I'll have to compromise. Can you help me decide please?
