Dear All,

I live in NY and I'm planning my dream vacation for 3 weeks to Asia. I have been many times to Thailand but for this trip I wanted to experience something different.

I'm planning on 10 days in Vietnam and 7 days in Cambodia and I have no idea where to go and how to make the most of these two countries?

The last 7 days will be spent in Phuket chilling and checking out some islands. Also if you had to choose Cambodia or Laos which would you see over the other?

I look forward to hearing from you,

Cambodia & it has to be Angkor Wat - Vietnam & it's Ha Long bay among a million other places - Luang Prabang in Lao is great although not everyones cup of tea -

But for something completely different, go to Myanmar, before everyone else does. Thailand it aint.

Vietnam has many beautiful untouched nature , if within 10 days , you should go to the famous place here : Ha Long Bay , Phong Nha cave , Hoi An Ancient Town , the island of Li Son , Binh Ba Island .... it does not make you disappointed:):)

You should spend more time to visit Vietnam, from North to South need more than 10 days. Many places as Hanoi, Sapa, Halong, Hue, Hoian, Saigon, Mekong Delta..... 3-4 days in Cambodia are enough, I like Siem Reap and spent 2 days tours there..
