Vietnam, Burma, Laos - how long?

Jump to last reply

Will have some time off work and plan on basing myself in Hong Kong to do a little travelling around South East Asia. I have friend who live in Hong Kong and am familiar with the city. The drawback is that airfares from Hong Kong to any of the countires I'd like to visit are much more expensive than Singapore/Bangkok/KL, etc. I have only just stated planning and would like to take a lenghty four or five week trip in late 2014 (which includes the HK portion).

I am thinking of 12 days in Vietnam, about 5 days in Laos and perhaps 10 days in Burma. Which order is best? How should I travel between the countries? Flights appear to be expensive for the international segments? I have not included Cambodia as I have been there. I wouldn't mind spending some time in Thailand but don't care to return to Malaysia or Singapore. I'm not a patient person and don't see myself travelling overland for many hours to get from A to B.

Any suggestions on how to organize the trip will be appreciated.
