Hi everyone, I’ve read a lot of posts, travel fish info and feedback on various locations and have come up with a draft itinerary for an almost 3 week trip to catch the highlights of Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos and would love some feedback if you could. So far it sits as this:
Fly into phnom phen for 2 nights
Fly to siem reap for 4 nights
Fly to Vientiane for 3 nights
Bus?? To Luang Prabang for 3 nights
Fly to Hanoi for 4 nights including an overnight trip to hanlong bay
Bus?? To sapa for 2 nights
Bus back to Hanoi for final night before flying back to aus.
Not sure if flights or buses or private drivers are best? Can anyone offer some advice on this? We are wanting A cultural experience with opportunities to visit communities not just cities along with seeing historic architecture and natural beauty. Do you think this itinerary will do that? I’m sure we will return to explore more in depth but we don’t get out much since having kids and as we are leaving them at home this time we can’t be gone for too long.
I look forward to hearing your experiences and advice :)
