SEA Trip Planning: Cambodia & Burma vs. Vietnam

Jump to last reply

Hi all. I just decided to take my first trip to SEA in September. I know weather-wise it's not the most ideal time, but I'll be between jobs and can devote more time that way. A friend will be traveling with me. We'll have about three weeks. I very much want to see Angor Wat but otherwise am unsure of where/what else I should prioritize.

I love experiencing other cultures, seeing different landscapes and architecture, and trying local cuisine. I'm relatively well-experienced traveling internationally, although I haven't yet traveled to Asia (other than Turkey). I can rough it, although things such as running water, electricity, and AC are preferable. I am more drawn to Burma than Vietnam, having worked with the Burmese population here in the states. However, I'd love to hear others' thoughts on Burma vs. Vietnam.

Also, in an ideal world where I had all the time in the world, I would love to also go to Australia, mainly to visit friends I have there. However, with only three weeks, I'm wondering if that's just a pipe dream.

I greatly appreciate any insight/tips/recommended itineraries you might have!
