SE Asian Potpourri Itineraries

Jump to last reply

Although I have been fortunate enough to visit SE Asia on several occasions, my girlfriend has nver been there. I wish that our available time for vacation was infinite, but alas, we have but 16 nights on the ground in October. I had first thought of a completely Vietnamese holiday, but after further thought and discussion, we felt that an Asian sampler might be a better option for a first-timer. So here are the options we've crafted and would appreciate your review and comment:

1) Four nights each: Chiang Mai, Luang Prabang, Siem Riep, and Bangkok.
2) Three nights each HCMC, Hanoi, Siem Riep, Luang Prabang, and four nights in Bangkok.

I am mindful that the second itinerary appears a bit rushed as I am generally an advocate of more leisurely exploration. However, in an effort to provide a broad spectrum of SE highlights in a relatively short period of time, I felt that these two proposals merit consideration. Advice and counter-proposals will be gladly welcomed.

Many thanks for your time and attention to my inquiries.
