Do you think we are pushing it if we want to travel through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Indonesia, Taiwan, and Japan in 10 weeks?

Thailand- 2 weeks
Laos- 1.5 weeks
Vietnam- 2 weeks
Indonesia- 1.5 weeks
Taiwan-1 week
Japan- 2 weeks

What do you think... are we going to exhaust ourselves?

i think you will have plenty of time you can see good amounts of thailand, laos,vietnam, maybe just bali in indo not been to the rest but im sure it will be ok, the key is not to try to see everything and give yourself time to enjoy what you are doing

yea, sorry let me clarify... for Indonesia we are just planning on doing Bali and Lombok, but we might cut Lombok out if we decide not to do the Mount Rinjani trek.

It all depends on your energy level. With that itinerary, you obviously only intend on seeing the highlights of each country as outlined in LP or some other glossy rag. Trouble is, when you get home you won't be able to match the picture to the place!

Cut it all in half and you will see (and enjoy) more

Totally agree with Daawgon-
Research a bit more, decide on 3 or 4 at most of the 6 countries you have listed you want to see, and explore a bit more...
Personally I find some of my best trip memories are when I go more "off the beaten path", if there is even such a thing any more in Asia.... visiting smaller villages, less travelled destinations etc.

With your itinerary you will likely stick to big cities and major tourist sites... Nothing wrong with that, but you don't get as good a feel for any of the countries you are seeing...

Hi my friend.
I'm Tuong ( you can call me Mr. Wall) :)
With 2 weeks in Vietnam, you can see almost beauty places. I can help you to organize and short your time too. The first, you fly to Ho Chi Minh city, then take 1 week in the Southern of VIetnam. After that you can fly to the North. I'm living in the Northern of Vietnam so I can help you when you come here.
With 1 week in the North of Vietnam, you use 2 days to visit Hanoi - Capital of Vietnam, learning about historic of Hanoi city with 1000 years old. Than you go to Halong ( The World Nature Heritage ) bay 2day / 1 night or 3 days / 2 nights with swimming and kayaking up to you. Halong bay 3days 2 nights, you can visit Cat Ba Island ( National Park) and trekking in there. And then you have 1 day or 2 day for free, you go to shopping. :)
I never been in the Southern of Vietnam so I don't have any information or experiences about that.
