Hi there,
How long will your trip be? If you have a month, divide it into 3 durations: 1 week or less for Laos, 1 week or less for Cambodia and 2 weeks or more for VN.

In Laos, you should not miss Luang Prabang, a very charming and relaxing old little town. Vientiane is worth a visit as well and from there you can cross the border to Vietnam. Besides, you may like to down to Siphan Don, the 4,000 islands, it's amazingly peaceful here.

In Vietnam, don't miss out Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue, Hoian, HCMC, and the Mekong Delta. If you have more time, try to go to Sapa for the beautiful landscapes and hill tribes; and squeeze in Nha Trang beaches as well.

From HCMC, you can cross the border to Phnom Penh and then you must visit Siem Reap with the Angkor Temples.

That's all about here. You will have great experiences.

Cheers,
Thi

Thank you so much for your reply...I want to travekl in November because here in Spain, the best work are in the summer with the tourism. But I think that in November or February is the best time for go.

Do you know some cheap accomodation in there?

Thank you!!
Maria

Hola María,

Hace dos años estuve cuatro semanas por Laos y Camboya.

En Laos te recomendaría Luang Prabang, Vientiane, Plain of Jars y, sobre todo, Don Det, unas islitas sin electricidad en medio del Río Mekong que para estar descansando y reponiendo fuerzas unos días son una maravilla. Dormir en Laos es muy barato y no tendrás problema en encontrar cientos de sitios en LP, TRG, L’sG, etc.

En Camboya estuve en Phnom Penh y Seim Reip. PP me defraudó bastante. Sin embargo, Seim Reip es un lugar fantástico donde perderse 5-6 días y explorar muchas de las maravillas que hay ahí.

A Vietnam voy en agosto. Así que poco puedo decir.

Si tienes alguna pregunta puedes mandarme un mensaje.

Its all cheap accommodation in the countries you have listed, I spent 3 weeks in each and wished I'd spent more time in Cambodia - it was amazing. When in Cambodia - go to Sihanoukville on the coast for some fantastic views, people and beaches...

Hi Thi_travel,

I will be travelling from N.Thailand into Laos & from there into vietnam. We had planned on going into Vientiane, up to Vang Vieng, up to Luang prebang & into Vietnam. Could you tell me is this possible, or would it be better to enter vietnam from Vientiane?

Thanks for the help

Clare

It is possible to travel from Vientiane to Vang vieng, then to Luang prabang.
If you want to connect to Vietnam, you can use a bus service, but it is very inconvinient.
Now there is direct flight from Luang prabang to Hanoi, but i don't know how often it is per week.

Enjoy your stay in Laos

Google up Plain de Jar and see if that area interests you.

Lots of cheap places to stay at.
Here is one link I have from a few years ago. (I never stayed there.)
