I'm going traveling around South East Asia in a few weeks time.
I really want to try and get round Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia in these weeks. Is this possible?
I do love beaches, culture and just seeing the different ways of life.
What would be recommended to see and can I get round these countries in this time?
You are going in the rainy season and it is quite wet at present so the beaches may be out.
Flights are a lot better than overland and companies like AirAsia aren't too badly priced.
Bus and train will get you around the countries.
Do you have visas?
What to see is the usual tourist spots. A country's name and tourism will bring up that information.
No, not possible in my opinion (maybe for Vietnam only, or Cambodia/Laos only). For good travel info, go to Travelfish, the SE Asia experts.

3 weeks for three counties is madness, I am sorry to say that but it's actually a fast run in a big stadium. You don't really have time to move your head around because you need to run for 3000 km distance in 3 minutes.
As my opinion, I would recommend you to choose only a single lovely destination to travel and aim to get the most out of it. Then it worth!
You could possibly choose Cambodia, Laos, or Vietnam only. But let me suggest you to stick to one and come to Cambodia! As my experience was in Cambodia for a month last year, I am sure that Cambodia has everything you want to see and she would perfectly reply to what you need.
You have almost perfect amount of time to explore treasures of culture, art, living, and history of Cambodia. You will also addict to the hot and white nice beach line off the coast. Wildlife adventure, gibbon spotting Cambodia in their natural habitats bases in Northern of the country, fresh water Irrawaddi Dophine spotting, Ancient temples discover like Indiana Jones, Community explore... and so on, all you can see in Cambodia.
Hope these can help you to have a special holiday in your time. If you have any inquiries how to do that, I am more than happy to help you.
Think about it and be on your own mind. Think positively to explore this amazing country.
