- Direct flight from your motherland to visit Cambodia for from 04-06 days : Angkor Wat and Siemriep city tour. You can take a direct flight from Cambodia to Ho Chi Miinh or Ha Noi from Cambodia.

Or you can go to Phnom Penh for a speed boat to Vietnam ( approx 5 hrs on boat) then you will reach Chau Doc ( Vietnam).
- from Chau Doc, hire a car to Vinh Long - Cai Be. Overnight in a local house there ( very interesting!) then early morning of next day, you can visit floating market and see people there bartering from boats to boats.
- afternoon of this day, you will visit Cu Chi Tunnels ( an underground world of Viet Cong in wars) on the way to Saigon ( Ho Chi Minh City) .

- Next day, enjoy Ho Chi Minh City half day city tour before the flight to Nha Tran to enjoy 03 Beachy days then flight to Hue and Visit Ancient Hoi An for 04 days ( dont forget to visit Cua Dai Beach or also named China Beach).

- If you are bored of flights, take an overnight train from Hue to Ha Noi. Then Enjoy 01 day for Ha Noi City and 02 days for Ha Long. Fly home!

Total days you will spend: 06 days for Cambodia, + 13 days for Vietnam = 18 days = two weeks and a half :)

However, if you wanna to start with Ha Noi first, so do the above itinerary up side down:

- Ha Noi: city tour + Ha Long -(train) - Hue + Hoi An: Cua Dai Beach or also named China Beach is the must-visit place. - (flight)- Nha Trang -(flight) - HCM (saigon): Cu Chi, Mekong.

If you like something new and more special then classic tours above, just enjoy adventure tours or Nostagia tours. i will advise later.

Best Regards,

But i think it's more flexible and relaxable if you can spend some extra days for each mentioned destinations and enjoy some adventure tours such as trekking, biking, kayaking....
