Hi all –
I am planning a 12-day trip this summer to SEA. Before anyone suggests a longer trip, this is all I have and I am perfectly okay with rushing around as this is typically the way I travel.
The original plan:
- Ho Chi Minh City 2 days, 3 nights
- Siem Reap – 2 days, 2 nights
- Bangkok – 2 days, 2 nights
- Phuket – 1 day, 1 night
- Koh Phi Phi – 2 days, 2 nights
- Koh Lanta – 1 day, 1 night
I would fly into Ho Chi Minh City and out Phuket. I was wondering, if we eliminate Siem Reap what other suggestions would you make? I was thinking Hanoi/Halong Bay, the flights between are only like $50 or so. Should we fly into Hanoi and work our way down or just replace Siem Reap with Hanoi, are there any other recommendations? We will primarily just be exploring, some city tours, some historical sites, lots of partying/eating.
