SE Asia 2ish Weeks

Jump to last reply

Tossing around some ideas at the family dinner this week and we decided that visiting SE Asia next Christmas would be fun. Flying from Canada & US. Experienced European travelers, but have never visited this region. Mother(retired) and daughter duo that are interested in temple/religious sites and food. Zero interest in beaches, hiking, waterfalls, etc. Nature is pretty from a boat/car.

An initial glance at maps and online itineraries led us to contemplate Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.

Thailand - primarily interested in Bangkok
Cambodia - Angkor Wat & surrounds
Vietnam - no idea...HCMC?

Budget will allow us to fly between sites if needed, or a mix of overland & flights.

We have about 16 days (including travel days to/from Asia)...so about 14 days on the ground. Could possibly add 2 days.

I know that the ideal is to concentrate on one country in that amount of time; however, Mom is retired and her travel budget is limited. It's likely that she will never return (Asia intrigues her, but is not at the top of her travel wish list). She is most interested in highlights trips.

Any thoughts on how to make those 3 countries "do-able" within 14-16 days on the ground?
