Hi there,

Myself and my other half are planning a trip to SE Asia for our honeymoon in August.

So far I've booked flights in to bangkok then a flight and hotel in Siem Reap for three nights. I don't want to book anything else for now and really just see how things pan out but the thought for after Siem Reap was:

Head to Phnom Penh for a couple of days
HCMC for a few days (trip to mekong delta etc)
Fly to Da Nanh/Hoi An for a few days (China Beach)
Train to Hue then on to Halong Bay
Hanoi
Fly to Luang Prabang then slow boat on the mekong to Thailand
A few days in Chang Mai (trekking etc)
Back to BKK for flight home.

Does that sound like I could miss some Must Not Be Missed places? Any suggestions of alternative routes or places to visit along the way?

Any suggestions of things to do in these places that I shouldn't miss as well?

All opinions welcome!!

Oh my God, Bangkok in August! It was hotter than hell in February, and smoggier than any other place on earth! Just hope you're very young and very skinny?

Congratulations

Na, I'm a thirtysomething fat lad

Been to Bangkok so know what to expect from it. Though the Mrs did have to remind me not to buy beige trousers
