Itinerary review for Vietnam & Cambodia please?

Jump to last reply

I get to spend a short time in Vietnam and Cambodia at the end of November and would appreciate a review of my planned itinerary before I start booking lodging and locking myself into some of this please. I already have my flights into Hanoi and out from Siem Reap. Everything else is up for suggestions.

Too short or too long in any of these or does it look like a somewhat balanced trip for a first visit? I'll lose half a day or more each time I switch cities... any opinions about possibly cutting out PP or HCMC? While there are lots of things in both cities that I want to see, there's nothing so far that is a "I MUST see that!" but I've only started looking into details.

Day 1: Travel
Day 2: Arrive Hanoi, mid morning
Day 3-4: Hanoi
Day 5-7: Ha Long Bay (2n, 3d)
Day 8-10: HCMC
Day 11-13: Phnom Penh
Day 14-18: Siem Reap (Angkor Wat was the main draw for this trip)
Day 19: Travel, leaving at noon (YAY for not having a 6am flight!)


I plan to fly between Hanoi and HCMC (train takes too much time for this trip).
HCMC to PP.... bus? I think that it would save very little time to fly.
PP to SR... boat or bus. Any suggestions for one over the other? It looks like pretty similar times again.

Thank you for any help or suggestions! :)
