    Take a look at a map - you are zig-zagging all over the place - very time inefficient. And, while all of your destinations are worthwhile, you have too many of them. Cut one major destination, and the rest of your itinerary will fall into place. Also, for your beach time you have chosen PhiPhi, which involves a boat transfer, making things more complicated for you unless you are willing to pay the big bucks for a private transfer.

    Looking at what you have, I'd cut Singapore as it is the geographic outlier. Save it for another trip.

    IMO, you don't have enough time in Luang Prabang, Siem Reap or Bangkok. It takes three full days(4 nights) just to see the so-called major temples at Angkor. We spent a week and would have enjoyed even more time. Get a copy of Dawn Rooney's book, Angkor: A Guide to Cambodia's Wondrous Temples to help you prepare for your visit.

    Luang Prabang is a sleepy little town and you have to slow down to experience it. If you rush in with a checklist of wats to visit you will miss all that is worthwhile about LP.

    Since you are going to Siem Reap, I'd cut Ayutthaya from your Bangkok time, as Ayutthaya suffers in comparison to Angkor.

    I recommend a minimum of 5 nights in Luang Prabang; a minimum of four or five nights in Siem Reap.

    Go to Phi Phi if you must, but you would be better of choosing Krabi or a less busy area of Phuket for your beach time.

    Happy planning!
