3 weeks - Best way round - flights etc??

We will be heading off on 5th (or around then) to Vietnam.

Departing Manchester

Where is the best place to start?

We want to go to Dubai for a stopover on the way home - where is the best place to return from?

We want to see as much as we can.

We are about to book the flights and set an itinerary and any help, advice appreciated.

Thanks

Book open jaw flights, but you need to specify your interests before we can answer

we are going to go to vietnam on 5th Jan

want to get around however possible, would rather fly cheap than overnight train

see hcmc - hanoi, hue, da nang, halong bay, if poss phnom pen, ankor wat

they are what we have so far, if any more then all the better

we are then spending a few days in dubai on the way home, need to be in dubai on 24th jan

I suggest:

fly into Hanoi (6 days w/Halong Bay cruise) - open jaw outbound

fly to Danang (5 days Hue/Danang/Hoi An)

fly to Saigon (3 days)

fly to Siem Reap (3 days)

fly to Dubai

fly home - open jaw inbound

anything more would be too rushed
