1 month in Cambodia and Laos

Hey everyone

I've tried to write an itinerary as I know it can be pretty important to book things sometimes...

there is 5 days empty at the end but something tells me that those days will end up being filled by extra days here and there.

Can anyone advise if some of these places suck or if I've missed some awesome places to go in Laos or Cambodia? Also any hotel recommendations for the towns that ive mentioned, or things to do, would be so appreciated.

Thanks so much everyone!

Also, if anyone would be interested in going to Tree top explorer together we would love to because it is very expensive but cheaper if you share.

Hi Leeluu

not nearly enough time in Siem Reap and not nearly enough time exploring the amazing Temples of Angkor ..for more info (in case you have not already seen it) .. canbypublications.com/siemreap/srstarted.htm ... if you have not booked things later in your trip already (eg the bike trip) put those spare (???) days (12 -17 Feb) into Siem Reap and shuffle everything on 5 days

I agree with the post before, you should have at least 3 days in/around Angkor Wat, if it interests you at all. Otherwise you're pretty much on the trodden path, and everything should be just o k. In case you'd like some more inspiration, send me a message.

Looks like you're not allowing enough time to do anything. Scrap Kep & Koh Rong and spend yoru time in Siem Reap & Phnom Penh.

Also, 2 days or so to see the Si Phan Don area? Visit one island only? That would be totally wasting time. You'll need at least 5 days to properly explore, add another day to see the sights of Pakse.

You really need to check the travel time between locations and factor that in, as well as just getting yourself to your accommodation etc. I'm no expert on Laos, but in Cambodia even though places are relatively close the journeys are often time-consuming.
