Vietnam and Angkor Wat, Cambodia: Need help organizing Itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (mid 50s) are booked to Vietnam flying from Toronto to HCMC arriving Jan 29th and returning from Hanoi on Feb. 14th. We would like to do a short excursion to Angkor Wat (Siem Reap, Cambodia) during this trip. Other places in Vietnam we would like to visit include Hue, Hoi Ann and Sapa.
I am having difficulty figuring out how to organize this trip.
Sapa seems best scheduled around the Can Cau Market (Saturday) or Bac Ha Market (Sunday). That would mean taking the night train from Hanoi on the Friday Feb. 6th returning on the night train Sunday night.
Do we fly to Siem Reap at the start of our trip from HCMC- the morning of Jan 31st returning on the evening of the 2nd or the morning of the 3rd of Feb.? If so is it best to fly from Siem Reap to Hanoi, spending time there before going to Sapa and then going to Hue/Hoi Ann area after Sapa returning back to Hanoi for our flight home on the 14th?
Or do we proceed from HCMC to Hoi Ann/Hue, making our way to Hanoi for a trip to Sapa (leaving Friday the 6th- returning on the Monday and then fly in and out of Hanoi to Siem Reap the following week before leaving on the 14th?
As I write this it seems less hectic and more cohesive to do Vietnam and end up with a short trip to Angkor Wat at the end when we are not as jetlagged.....
I wasn't sure if Halong Bay is worthwhile in early February so did not include it in the itinerary. Any other suggestions appreciated. Sorry this is so long-winded.
Thanks!
