Guys,
Planning on doing some of SE asia from Late Oct. Unlimited time. The only hold back would be budget.

This is a rough idea about what we would like to do. Any tips or anything would be great.

London-BKK
BKK-Chiang Mai
fly CM to Siem Reap
O/land to Phnom Penh
O/Land to Saigon
Head north through Danang, Hoi Ann and Hue
HEad north to Hanoi
fly or O/l to Vientiane
fly to Bkk
then do a few islands for some relaxtion before flying home to Melb.

Any tips on transport between palces would be great and also any other places in between worth stopping to check out.

Appreicate it guys.

First day in bangkok, please do city tour plus grand palace. It's a must see.

next day, either ancient city or floating market if you like. or if you didn't go out last night, may be morning canal tours. :)

BKK-Chiang Mai by low cost such as onetwo-go.com it's @ Baht 1,550 per way. or airasia.com promotion during weekday is available.

A must see in Chiang Mai is Doi Suthep temple. and Khantok dinner.

From Chiang Mai, you can do river raft along mae khong river to visit vientian. It's easy.

and from loas , not sure whether you can cross the border by overland to vietnam or not..if you can , you can do vietnam from north to south and then fly to cambodia to endjoy phnom pehn and siem riep.

From siem riep, there is direct flight from siem riep to phuket. So you dont' have to stop over in Bangkok to enjoy island.

From Phuket, you can take optional tours to phi phi island either day trip or overnight in phi phi.

and from phuket, you can get low cost airlines from phuket to singapore by silkair..

It can cost only Baht 1,800/way if you got the promotion.

after enjoy singapore..then you can fly back to melbourn.

This is my idea..may be it's not what you like..but I do hope , you may like.

Cheers
Chorpet

My suggesion is only in Vietnam: from SGN you should take open bus. You can stop to visit place of interrest:
SGN- Da Lat -Nha Trang - Da Nang - Hoi An - Hue - Quang Tri - Dong hoi - Tam Coc - Hanoi. From Hanoi We sell open tour to Ha Long Bay ( USD 20) ; Sapa ( USD 75) or other destination.
