Trouble in Paradise? Itinerary conundrum

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, I wrote earlier about a planned trip to Vietnam with my boyfriend in April. This will be my third trip to Asia, his first. I thought we had everything planned out, but now he's thrown a wrench into the works! :-) He wants to add Siem Reap for a short side-trip. Actually, he initially wanted to add Siem Reap AND Phuket or Krabi... but he wants me to stay with basically the same budget and not take more than two weeks off work. He's given me quite the challenge. I've told him it's about picking and choosing, but we're now having a real dilemma.

Here's the new proposal, more rushed than I originally wanted but perhaps doable. What do you think:

Hanoi - 3 nights, fly to:
Hue - 2 nights
Hoi An - 3 nights, fly to:
Siem Reap 3 nights

We can fly (using United frequent flier miles) into Hanoi and home from Siem Reap. The flights will be brutal as we're going economy and the trips are very long (from Washington).

This cuts Halong Bay and Mai Chau. I keep reading about the trash in Halong Bay, and it's beginning to sound unappealing. Plus, we'll probably go to Thailand in a couple of years for a beach vacation, and I'm thinking we could see similar scenery there. Thoughts? I kind of hate missing Mai Chau, but if he really wants to see Siem Reap, I want to do that, although i know the heat will be bad.

Suggestions?

Thanks,
Karen
