I am 38, male travelling to Vietnam and cambodia alone. Will be traveling for 2 weeks. First week, I will be in Vietnam. Second week, I would like to go to Cambodia. Wanted to find out if anyone will be going? I am travelling from Los Angeles, CA.
What tourist places should i visit in Vietnam and Cambodia? I speak a little of both Vietnamese and Cambodian.
I am thinking of going to Thailand also but I am not sure if I will have enough time.

You don't have enough time. One week in each country is fast as is.

Hey there,

You should use Hanoi and HCMC as bases to visit nearby areas. Here are my suggestion for a week:

From Hanoi, there are more options to consider (Sapa, Ha Long Bay, Perfume pagoda).

Then go to the central of the country, either by bus, train or plane is fine). Spend few days in Hue, Da Nang, Hoi An.

Finally head to the south to HCMC, Cu Chi Tunnel, and Mekong Delta. If you like beautiful beaches, then shouldn't miss Nha Trang on the way.

Oh no, already a lot for just a week!!! I think 10-12 days is more realistic hehe
