SE Asia in 8 days?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to SE Asia from 8/22-8/31. But, I don't know exactly where to go yet. I'm leaving from New York, and have narrowed down the places I'd love to see to Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam.
Would it be possible to fly into Ho Chi Minh City, make my way up north through Cambodia and Laos, and fly out of Hanoi? Or is that just way too much to pack into 8 days? Would it be better to fly into Ho Chi Minh City and out of Chiang Mai? Or should I just stay in one area the whole time?
About me: I'm in my late 20s, I've never been to Asia. I love to explore culture, history, nature, and relax. I'm not as interested in spending time in big cities (since I live in one!), or partying, or sitting on a beach the entire time. I want to be able to see as much as I can in this short amount of time while not being totally overwhelmed. I want to be able to enjoy it! I'm meeting my boyfriend there (He will be in the middle of traveling SE Asia for 6 weeks. He has also never been, but is totally flexible about where he can meet me), so I will not be alone.
Any help is truly appreciated.
