Travel Forums Asia Vietnam & Cambodia : Must sees

Hey guys, hope ure all well...

I have planned a bit of a marathon allowing 5 weeks to get from Hong Kong down through China & Vietnam and up through Cambodia into Thailand.

I am wondering what the must sees are in Vietnam and Cambodia and even anything between Hong Kong and the Vietnam border. I want 2 weeks in Thailand so I guess 3 weeks doing the rest is my limit.

Anyone got any suggestions????

I guess you better focus on Vietnam and Cambodia, and skip China (well, apart from travelling from HK to Vietnam of course).
In northern Vietnam you can visit the mountain/hill tribes (minorities in Sapa area) and Hanoi and Halong Bay.
A bit more south you can enjoy a few days in Hue or Hoi An, mix of culture and relaxing at beaches if you want.
Southern Vietnam has Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta of course, and from there it's not to far away first to Phnom Penh and Angkor Wat, from where you can travel to Bangkok/Thailand.

Must sees in Cambodia if you have the time are:

- 3 – 4 days Angkor Wat and the associated nearby temples of course
- 2-3 days Phnom Penh, visiting Royal Palace, National Museum, learn about Cambodia’s dark past at the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum and the ‘Killing Fields’, and take a cruise along the Mekong to Silk Weaving Island
- Visit Mondolkiri’s gree rolling hills and take an elephant trek
- check out the ethnic minority villages of Ratanakiri
- spot the endangered freshwater endangered Irrawaddy dolphins
- make your way up Bokor Mountain to explore the eerie remains of a deserted casino town
- relax on the uncrowded beaches of Sihanoukville and explore the deserted beaches of the nearby islands
- take time out in Battambang with its charming faded French colonial architecture and beautiful surrounding countryside

That should give you some ideas to start with - enjoy…

This kinda answers have been discussed as well. Basically it's pretty shitty to get an answer like that. I mean, you can find every answer here on the forum, because everything has been asked...we are all going to the same places obviously and then there are travelguides like LP. It's all about personal answers here Clanger.
