Tentative itinerary for SE Asia - what changes would you recommend?

Jump to last reply

I thought I had my 3 week (20 nites) itinerary done, but now I'm considering the 2-day boat trip to Luang Prabang, and go back and forth about it. I'm inclined toward doing it but wonder 1) will we get too bored and 2) will we sacrifice something I don't want to miss. I'm not as worried about being too bored as I am about missing something special. The one place I think I'd like to spend more time in is Chiang Rai, but I don't yet have a strong sense of the place.

My first itinerary draft was:
Bkk-5 nites
Chiang Mai - 4 nites
Chiang Rai - 3 nites
Luang Prabang - r nites
Siem Reap - 4 nites

But if we take the boat ride, I think it will be this:
BKK-5 nites
Chiang Mai 4 nites
Chiang Rai -2 nights (touring with a guide on that full day and perhaps the next, traveling from CR to CK)
Chiang Khong - 1 night
Pak Bang (stop over) 2 full days on Mekong River, with several site stops
Luang Prabang-3 nites
Siem Reap -4 nites

At the moment, I'm inclined to doing the cruise, though could go either way. I'm very interested in the Chiang Rai area, though, and wonder if we're going to regret not spending more time here( yes, I know you can't see or do everything). I'm certainly planning to get a guide (hoping that Jermsak will be free).

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks everyone for your help! It's greatly appreciated!
