Please help with Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos Itinerary! First time in Asia.

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have travelled to 5 continents but never Asia. We would like a taste of a few places- hopefully to return someday. We have been adventurous travelers but are more staid now. I have been reading many posts trying to get an idea of where to go, and have pared my itinerary down based on your many recommendations. We are planning to go to Vietnam and Siem Reap in late October 2013 with 19-20 days on the ground (leaving from SFO). The main impetus for the trip is Angkor Wat, although we are not temple junkies.
This is a rough itinerary and I would welcome some suggestions! (I would like to nail down the destination of our return airport so I can try to use miles to upgrade when they release the seats next month).
Arrive Hong Kong -spend 4 nights.
Fly to Hanoi- spend 5 nights including an overnight on Halong Bay.
Fly to Luang Prabang- spend 3 nights.
Fly to Siem Reap- spend 3 nights.
4 more nights-where to go? Fly home from Bangkok or Singapore? Visit Hoi An or somewhere in S. Vietnam and fly home from HCMC?
I would like to get some birding/ wildlife and/or beautiful water time in but don't know how to fit the time.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks!
