Planning Trip to HK, Bangkok, VN, and Cambodia

Jump to last reply

I have recently planned trips to Africa and South America with the excellent advice of Fodor's members, and I have always posted a trip report. Now my husband and I are interested in SE Asia for January, 2013. We have only about 2 1/2 weeks for this trip. We will depart from Newark airport, and perhaps we will begin with a 2 day short visit to Hong Kong. (We can get a taste of HK, and hopefully we'll be a bit recuperated from the long flight when we arrive at the next city).

I know it's an ambitious itinerary, but we are good travelers, and we are hoping for an overview of the highlights of this area, since we don't know if we'll return there. We would like to visit Bangkok and Chiang Mai, Ho Chi Min City and Hanoi (possibly Halong Bay too), and Siem Reap. Is January the best time to go to SE Asia?

I've read some of the wonderful trip reports here. Is there one recommended travel agent who can coordinate and book our plans in all of these countries? For example, it would be great to have someone help with the flights. What would be the best order to visit these places? We would also like to be met upon arrival in each place. Since we prefer to travel
on our own (not a tour), we would like to arrange for guides also.

Thank you all very much in advance for your help.
