I've just come back from spending Christmas and New Year in Vietnam and Cambodia. I've put together this trip based on a similar itinerary.

Flights are with Emirates and go from LGW. The outgoing flight has two short stops but I personally think these are better than the flights around £10 cheaper with China Southern as Emirates is a much better airline.

I've included bus and flights where I can but airport transfers aren't included. Most hotels will be able to sort these for you and some offer free pick up but you can also make your own way using local buses or taxi. You will also need to add a visa cost onto this. You will need a visa on arrival when you arrive in Hanoi (I think this was $25). You'll also need a visa on arrival for Cambodia which is $30.

There are much cheaper or more expensive places to stay, but I've included ones with good reviews and some I've stayed in myself. They are all also in good locations too.

Details:

7th June
Leave LGW and commence flight to Hanoi.

8-12th June
Arrive in Hanoi 8th June. You will stay at the Hanoi Guest House for 3 nights. I've personally stayed here and it is right in the middle of the old town and is great value. In Hanoi, you can walk the nearby lake, head to Halong Bay or Cat Ba for a cruise or enjoy the food in the old town. Also consider heading to Sapa which has some lovely scenery, rice fields and traditional villages.

12-14th June
You will catch the train to Hue. Again you can get advice on booking this but it will cost around $35 depending on travel class. Alternatively you can also fly. As there are a range of options here you'll need to add this onto your total price. In Hue you will stay for 2 nights at the Jade Hotel. I've stayed here for 2 nights myself and it is walking distance to the palace and there are also plenty of places to eat locally.

14-17th June
On 14 June you'll travel to Hoi An. Now you have a range of methods to get you here and you'll need to account for this in your trip, but I recommend a motorbike. You will drive the 'Top Gear Road' and the views from the pass are stunning as you head down to the coast. You can also stop en route at Danang and Marble Mountain. In Hoi An you will stay for 3 nights at the Beautiful Moon. In Hoi An you can wander the river and old town, view the lanterns in the evening and also head to My Son temple. If you want a tailored suit, this is also the place to haggle and get one made.

17-20th June
You'll fly from Danang to Siem Reap on 17th June and spend 3 nights in Siem Reap in the Green Park Village (free airport transfer in Siem Reap available). No trip to Siem Reap would be complete without visiting Angkor Wat temple complex. Fight the crowds and get up at 4am to arrive by 5am if you want to see sunrise. I wasn't a fan of Pub Street, but if you want 25 cent beer and cheap massages this is the place to go. Also head into the local villages, hire a bike and get off track and see the local lives of Cambodian people.

20-22nd June
You'll take the Cambodia Post Van (other buses available) for your visit to Phnom Penh. You'll stay for 2 nights at the Sundance Inn. In Phnom Penh make sure you visit the S21 museum and also the Killing Fields, it's such a humbling experience.

22-23rd June
You'll take the Hang Chau ferry (your hotel can help you with booking the tickets $25p) from Phnom Penh back into Vietnam. You won't need a visa as you have a visa waiver. The boat takes around 4hrs. Once in Chau Doc you'll stay for 1 night at the Murray Guesthouse which I've personally stayed at. It is a lovely place with free cycles if you want to explore.

23-25th June
On 23rd you'll take the Futa bus from Chau Doc to Can Tho. I've picked a place I celebrated New Year. The Green Village in the Mekong Delta. It's a homestay and you are in a bamboo hut close to local villages and the river. I loved it here. You won't have hot water and you will see gekos, frogs and probably a mouse or two but you can take the free cycles or their own boat and explore the surrounding area. They also offer tours of the floating markets I a small boat. If you are a bit squemish then look at staying in Can Tho itself. Meals are also included here and they were amazing, some of the best food we had.

25-27th June
On 25th June you'll get the Futa bus to Ho Chi Minh. You'll then spend 2 nights in the Royal Saigon. I've stayed here myself and although it's basic, it is in the heart of the backpacker district and has a restaurant attached which has great reviews too.

On the 27th June you need to be at the airport around 10pm for your flight which leaves early hours on 28th June.

Sounds like a great trip, but just remember that June is one of the wettest months to travel to Vietnam with 3/4 of the month being doused in very very heavy rain showers....albeit warm rain which lead to streets regularly being temporarily flooded. You'll be very lucky to avoid an afternoon without heavy rains in June which may curtail your plans somewhat, however the bars are aplenty and a great place to take cover and sit it out ;-) or get wet and get a real feel for V.

We had a few hours of rain in Hoi An in December and the old town flooded, good job it was our last day! We had good weather when we arrived for 3 days but we were lucky as 2 weeks prior to our arrival it has rained every day for 2 weeks.

The weather is also different in the North compared to the South but June *should* be warm and sunny based on past forecasts online I found!

I would add that these 2 countries are great to travel. Sounds like you had a great time...so much to see from Sapa in the North through to the mehkong delta in the South.

if people are afraid to travel on their own then I would recommend a company like Intrepid travel....and coincidently there is a sale on now which ends tomorrow - 20% off if this helps....

Here is a similar trip but without flights...

Is there a single person supplement for this? Deal seems to be based on 2 people going then just divided in half for price each.

I second Roame re LV. Have the premium insurance policy and although never claimed, comparing like for like with other annual policies they cover a range of activities and seem really good value.
Never had problems with scammers in either Vietnam or Cambodia. Phnom Penh felt a little seedy in places particularly around the memorial and Royal Palace.
The only other minor niggle we had was when we were riding cycles around the Mekong area. We just went off on our own with a map and two women cycling around sunset seemed to be quite a novelty for the locaks and there was two motorbike riding men around 50 who passed us around 4 times, kept touching our arms as they drove past. They then stopped in front of us and insisted we were going the wrong way which we knew we weren't and then laughing. Just didn't react and cycled on and they soon got bored. I was more offended by some of the antics on Pub Street by other tourists :p
Yeah thanks all. May think about for next year. Doing Montenegro (following one of Rachel's posts last year) for the second time, this year. Beautiful and as yet under-developed but that won't last long....... Still outside EU for phone networks etc, not covered on any travel plans so something like £1.50 a minute, and wifi coverage is patchy. Some of the intensely (local)- tourist areas were as risky as some of the situations I've seen on here about Vietnam, - not to mention the suicidal-car-body-wrecking drivers who freaked me out while I was trying to protect our hired-car; conversely also had some of the sweetest and kindest support from complete strangers and locals as we've ever had. Back with most of my extended family this year, to show them how to step off the beaten track a bit :-)


Great post! Heat from me. Any advice on suitable for me (female) to take my 12 year old daughter for a shorter trip - 7-10 days on part of this itinerary - just the two of us? I did a fair amount of travelling when a student so comfortable backpacking myself and tempted to start widening her horizons but not been to that part of the world before.

You could cut Cambodia out and just focus on Vietnam. It really depends on what you want to see and do.

Thanks - but a relatively streetwise woman and 12 year old should be ok? (as much as two females on their own are ever ok..!?!). I've taken her to Marrakech, trekked across a bit of the arctic circle with her, Egypt, Turkey etc... just not got a feel for what Vietnam is like. Sounds amazing though so I'm tempted to go for it!

You'll be absolutely fine. We saw a single parent with her 10yr old who was visiting Vietnam and having a great time and on the boat trip from Phnom Penh to Chau Doc the staff let her 'drive' the boat. I was surprised how geared up for tourists it is. You'll have no trouble, in my opinion.

I think it depends, I really enjoyed Hue and the Imperial City. Siem Reap I spent 4 nights, of course Angkor is great and the surrounding countryside and villages were lovely to cycle around but you can easily adjust this itinerary.

Sounds like a great trip, but just remember that June is one of the wettest months to travel to Vietnam with 3/4 of the month being doused in very very heavy rain showers....albeit warm rain which lead to streets regularly being temporarily flooded. You'll be very lucky to avoid an afternoon without heavy rains in June which may curtail your plans somewhat, however the bars are aplenty and a great place to take cover and sit it out ;-) or get wet and get a real feel for V.

We had a few hours of rain in Hoi An in December and the old town flooded, good job it was our last day! We had good weather when we arrived for 3 days but we were lucky as 2 weeks prior to our arrival it has rained every day for 2 weeks.

The weather is also different in the North compared to the South but June *should* be warm and sunny based on past forecasts online I found!


Haha! At that time of year, unless you're up in the mountains (Sapa was by far my favourite place in Vietnam and isn't on this itinerary for some strange reason) it's going to be HOT and VERY WET! It's summer here but SE Asia is a tropical climate and in June expect high humidity and heavy rain. A couple of places in central Vietnam should be fine but for the rest of this, break out the brolley and wellies. I normally start to head home in late may when I'm away, as by that point the weather is normally on the turn.

We did go to Sapa from Hanoi and spent time there. It's easily done as a side trip, and we did enjoy it, but we found it very touristy and it's experiencing something of a boom of huge hotels being built. Avoid Cat Cat village if you can get which is overrated and a tourist trap in my opinion and if I was doing it again I would love to head further into the hills and mountains and away from the tourist areas. It reminded me of parts of Bali. You can easily adjust the itinerary to suit what you want to see and do. Everyone will have different interests and it's good for people to get an idea of what they can see and do. For example, this trip doesn't include PQ, Con Dao and there are other islands too - Con Dao was originally on my itinerary but as I then included Cambodia I had to scrap it. Another trip maybe.

Did a similar six week backpacking trip last year across Thailand and Vietnam. Booked trains and internal flights as we went. Vietnamese people without exception were lovely. Never once felt unsafe.The country is going hell for leather for tourism so it won't be long before they adopt the slighty cynical commercial attitude that I sometimes came across in Thailand. So now is the ideal time to do it. Our favourite was Ho Chi Minh city (Saigon), found Hue a bit boring TBH, see one temple, seen 'em all.

If you actually read my comment, you'll see that I said that, "Sapa was by far my favourite place in Vietnam", ie I've already been there. I don't go away for a couple of weeks so I have the chance to do a little more than scratch the surface.
I do think that water spending all the time you did putting your itinerary together you should mention the weather at that time of the year. If the rain isn't an issue (and the delays associated with it) then the humidity may well be.

Visa is not required for UK (and a number of other citizens particularly European) if spending less than 15 days in Vietnam.

Good post though. I spent Christmas in Vietnam (Nhà Trang) and New Year in Cambodia (Sihanoukville). Currently in Siem Reap.

Took a trip to Vietnam last year, suggested by Holiday Pirates. It was amazing. Was very wary at first but no need. People were fabulous, cities
were amazing and the island of Phu Quoc was an incredible experience. Thank you for posting this, not for us this year methinks but next year!

Would definitely recommend hiring a bike around the Angkor Wat temples. You can easily spend 2 days seeing the whole complex.The bikes are basic unisex so if you have padded cycle pants use them. Also take a towel to wrap around your neck as you will sweat a gooden.

I took one of the free bikes from the guest house where I stayed and spent three days cycling around the temple complex. It was one of the highlights of a 6 month trip round SE Asia. But do yourself a favour, take a headlamp!! I stayed out for the sunset each night and coming back in the dark was, interesting! I also did the sunrise on my last day and it was hilarious seeing the faces of the fat, lazy tourists slumped in the back of tuk-tuks as I overtook them on my "old ladies shopper bike" in the pre-dawn dark - you could see the most effort that they put into their whole trip was to haul themselves up and out before breakfast! Each to their own though....

Went to Vietnam. Got robbed. Still think it's a nice place to go, but don't go flashing your phone/rolex/camera/money nothing. Wouldn't advise you to take children either. FYI I didn't flash the cash or anything. I was on a beach, some locals approached us, I thought they wanted to sell us crap, turns out they wanted to rob us.

Yeah, because if you don't like sharing bedroom with smelly students, cold showers and diarrhea, you've got to be the guy drinking Stella with your full english at the airport's Wetherspoon.

Visa is not required for UK (and a number of other citizens particularly European) if spending less than 15 days in Vietnam.
