Help! My one month SE Asia itinerary

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I just booked our tickets to SE asia for August 25-Sept 29... and now the planning begins! We are going to be flying into Hanoi and then flying out of Bangkok. Our goal is to do Vietnam/ Angkor Wat/ Thailand. From what I've read, most say don't plan too much as life is more leisurely in this part of the world. However, a part of me wants to see as much as possible, seeing as though I don't know when we will have the chance to go back. We've already decided that we don't want to lose days traveling, so my first question is, are domestic flights reasonable? If so, is it recommended? Is it that much pricier than train/bus travel? Also, aside from travel costs, what is an appropriate budget for two for a month (accommodations, food, activities, etc.) ?

I've constructed a very, very rough itinerary that is completely open for criticism. Please let me know if it's too ambitious, and then we can plan accordingly...

8/25-8/30 Hanoi/Halong Bay
-> fly to Danang

8/31-9/6 Hoi An
-> fly to HCM city

9/6-9/10 HCM city
-> * not sure yet how to get to Siem Reap...fly?

9/11-13 Angkor Wat
-> fly to bangkok- connect to chiang-mai???

9/13 or 14-20- Chiang-Mai
-> fly to the beach, phuket?? not sure where yet...

9/20-27- BEACH (island hop?)
-> fly back to bangkok

9/28-29- Bangkok

Again, this is very tentative. Any advice is very helpful!


Thanks!
Nichole
