We want to spend 6+ weeks in southeast Asia starting in late January visiting Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. I need to try to figure out the best routing in terms of price and convenience and would like input from experienced travelers in this area.
I believe I can fly from JFK to Ho Chi Minh City, from Hanoi to Luang Prabang, from Luang Prabang to Siem Riep or Phnom Penh and from there back to New York. Is this the best direction and the least expensive way to do it or is there a better way?
I have been reading the guide books and these boards to determine where we want to go but the routing is a question of experience and personal knowledge.
Thanks in advance for your help.
