Vietnam/Campodia - what to do with extra day

Jump to last reply

Looks like our 12 day Vietnam / Cambodia vacation will be extended by 1 day to 13 days total.

Here is my current 12 day itinerary:
Day 1 - arrive Hanoi 9:30 am (last day of Tet Holiday)
Day 2 - Hanoi city tour
Day 3 - Hanoi to Halong Bay. Overnight on a junk.
Day 4 - Halong - Hanoi to Hue - (early evening flight to Hue)
Day 5 - Hue - tour area
Day 6 - Hue to Hoi An - stopping on way in Danang and Marble Mountain.
Day 7 - Tour and shopping in Hoi An for the day
Day 8 - Hoi An - Danang for morning flight to Saigon (city tour)
Day 9 - Mekong Delta Excursion
Day 10 - afternoon flight to Siem Reap
Day 11 - Angkor Wat
Day 12 - Siem Reap - morning boat trip - fly out in the afternoon.

My travel agent has suggested a stop for one night in Phenom Penh before going to Siem Reap.

Question - Is that enough time to see Phenom Penh or would our extra day be better spent somewhere else? Is there something else, or somewhere else that we should consider?

We are experienced (young 50's) travelers and want to see as much as possible since we will likely not be able to see these beautiful countries again for a while.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
