Vietnam - Cambodia - Thailand

by thoneebench1

Hi,

We are planning to have 7 days vacation in Feb 2011. We will arrive in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam then go to Ang Kor Wat Cambodia, then Bangkok Thailand. Do you think this is possible in 7 days?

Thanks
Anthony

It's possible but you'll spend too much of your limited time travelling.

Re: Vietnam - Cambodia - Thailand

Even if you split your 7 days like 2 days HCMC, 3 days Angkor Wat and 2 days in BKK, you will be losing time during travelling. If you spend less than 3 days in Angkor Wat, you won't see enough of it. 2 days for HCMC and BKK are barely enough. At least you would need one additional day for both cities. You can still make it but you won't get enough of any. You can check my HCMC, Angkor Wat and BKK pages for suggestions.

Agree, you will make it, but either you will have no time for seeing Sai Gon or no time for Bangkok. You could however do Angkor Wat in 2 days.

Re: Vietnam - Cambodia - Thailand

by GrumpyDiver

Those three places in 7 days is much too agressive a schedule. When we went last year we spent 6 days in Siem Reap alone exploring the ruins and area around Angkor, not counting the days getting there and back.

I can see cutting things back to two of the places, but all three, plus day of arrival and departure, you will spend all your time getting in and out of airports and hotels.

No,I would not recommend doing what you suggest.

As others have already said, you are spending too much time traveling. And don't forget that you have to arrange for visas as well,and pay for the fees.

You need 2-3 days to see the temples in Cambodia.

Re: Vietnam - Cambodia - Thailand

I agree with all the above, it is feasible but far, far too hectic a schedule to enjoy anything.

Re: Vietnam - Cambodia - Thailand

by earthflyer

With one day pick one country and make the most of it and enjoy it.

3 countrys in seven days, pointless, nothing to experience.

Re: Vietnam - Cambodia - Thailand

by Homanded

We just returned from a month long, 6 country tour of SE Asia.
Our itinerary was as follows:
Bangkok (3 days)
Siem Reap (3 days)
Bali (6 days)
Hong Kong (5 days)
China - duration of trip

I can tell you, as other have here, that although possible and yes, you can "see" them, you won't really SEE anything.
I suggest Bangkok and Cambodia.

You can do Bangkok as we did: Stay at Khao San road area on river. See the major sites/temples on one day.
Ayutthaya 2nd day
3rd day for relax and shopping/down town area.
4th day - fly to Siem Reap. Arrive afternoon and go for sunset (touristy but worth it).
5th day - up early and see 4-5 temples in Angkor along with Bantaey Srei (women's temple).
6th day - Tonle Sap lake and Beng Meleae (further away, not crowded and very devoid of tourists). On return stop off at Angkor Wat.

Although hectic, we were able to do all of this with no problem and got to spend quite a bit of time at each place.
Hope this helps.

Travel Tips for Bangkok

A foot massage with an extended notion of feet!

by carolerica

There are hundreds of massage parlours in Bangkok, some are amazing, and some are really crappy... some only offers you a very limited choice of massages, and others a huge variety!
Well, I found one that I'm particularly found of, simply because the massage is good, done by really professional masseuses, and offering little extras that makes you feel so goooooood.
For exemple, you wish a foot massage.
Fine, 200 Baths for an hour, OK. But once this hour is passed, the masseuse proceeds to massage you facem head, neck, shoulders, arms, tighs... 20 extra minuts of pure bliss..... hummmm Interested?
The name of the place is: YARDPET FOOT MASSAGE
The adress: 3/30 Sukhumvit Soi 18, Klongtoey, Bangkok 10110
Phone: 02.260.28.06
It's situated exactly in front of The Admiral's restaurant and Pub (see my restaurant tip about this really nice place), and really it's worth it!
Enjoy

Prices are very cheap

by Sajt

The only expensive thing just to travel to Thailand. After you are arriving this country, you dont have to pay a lot. I just have a little story about prizes.

When I arrived Bangkok. 1 am in the morning, I didn't know what to do, I didn't know where to go. The only information what I had, is the name of Kao San road.
I tried to find some something to travel to this street.

The first idea was a taxi. That was around 600 Bat. Ather that I found an other taxĂ­ only for 300 Bat After that I found a van company, that was 100 Bat. 8 people together in a van. That was ok. After that we found a map with the local Buses. The women told us, don't use this because sometimes you have't A/C. We didn't care. Guess what, how much was the bus? 20 Bat!!!

River Cruise - Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn

by Audrey118

This is possibly the most photgraphed temple....funny but I really think it looked much more awesome during the sunset to the 'dawn'. Wat Arun has a long, elongated, Cambodian-style, prang, the tower, and four minor towers symbolising Mount Meru, the terrestrial representation of the thirty-three heavens. The Prangs are covered with pieces of porcelain, which Chinese boats coming to Bangkok used as ballast. The prang is about 82 meters covered with many colours of Chinese porcelain.

Get Your "Wai" right and become Miss Universe

by Bangkokjoe

Crumbs, there I was yesterday writing up about "Wai's" and how showing some consideration gets you a long way in good old Bangkok and what happens?

...I'll tell you what happens. The very same evening down at the Miss Universe Finals in Bangkok's Impact Arena, Miss Canada drops a kindly,"kop khun kha" on the end of one of her answers ...and then, cherry on the top.... gives a full-marks ten-out-of-ten and appropriate "wai" to the bloke in charge. Just like the one Ronald McDonald is doing outside the hamburger joint. Just like the one David Beckham made at the National Stadium in 1999. Crowd errupts.

(Her answer was a tad cheesey but there you go... "The biggest challenge in my life is always to think positive. I consider myself the kind of person who sees the world as a glass half-full, instead of half-empty. Oh well, a good thank you, a top wai and a crumbly answer. C'est la vie. Crowned for the year.

On your left, the perfect wai. Nice one Khun Nat. Picture lifted straight off the front page of today's society magazine with my digital camera
____________

Fancy another bit of info on Thai customs? There are over There 450 Beauty Contests in Thailand EVERY YEAR. And so you know how important these are, yesterday's government cabinet meeting was postponed from 8.30am to 10.00am as a few of the members were at the show. The majority of the others wanted to watch it live on satellite (The Bangkok Post reports).

____________

Stop Press: Well, we are now in November 2005, six months on from the forementioned contest, and the "get your wai right" has delivered the ultimate reward. Our Miss Canada / Universe now appears on the back of Mama Noodle Pots (second pic). This is major news. For those with a British pysche, this is rather like Robert de Niro making it onto a can of Heinz Baked Beans.

____________

Stop Press: If you think this looks like VT Member "Tina-Perth" you'd be right. We only mix with royalty here you know!
