Help from all seasoned travelers to SE asia

Jump to last reply

Hello to all experts in Southeast Asia. I have enjoyed reading all your insights. I am going in june to Tokio and a cruise of Japan. I have 15 days extra to visit SE asia for the first time. I am very confused! The travel agent has prepared a highlights itinerary as follows
2 nts bankok
2 nights chiang mai
2 nights chiang rai
2 nts siam reap
2 nts phong penh
2 nts saigon
2 nts hanoi
1 nt halong bay

I think this is a disaster. Too much moving around. I know it is meant as a sampler, but it seems that it is way too rushed. Any suggestions of what I should skip? Or how to combine things in a way that I wont spend my time just going to airports and check ins.

Also, I have read your reviews of laos, and dont know if I should switch saigon for it
I appreciate any suggestions you might have, since I need to start the visa process soon
Thanks you all
