Best way to travel through SE Asia and what can't we miss?

I am planning a trip to Indo China with a friend during Feb and March 2016.  We are taking a tour through Vietnam starting in Ho Chi Min City and ending in Hanoi and would then like to visit Laos and Cambodia.  What is the best way to travel?  What are the must see highlights?  We only have about a week to see these 2 countries.  What are the highlights of Angor What and is Phnom Penh worth a visit?

    Angkor Wat is a tousand year old temple, one of the largest ever built.

    The size the complexity and sheer brilliance of it, can notbe missed, but there Iis 200 other temples in the near vicinity (20klms) ) all in the one price ticket to see $ US40 is a 3 day pass into the temle park.

    Phnom Penh

    Is a beautiful french inspired city (like a lot cities in SE Asia) you also visit the horror history of Polpot and the genocide of the 1970s , but it is a must see city

    Only two weeks to visit both countries is short time and you will miss many beautiful places. You can start tour in Ho Chi Minh City after that take flight to Hoi An - take some days tour in Hoian. From Hoi an transfer to Da Nang to take flight to Siem Reap( Angkor Wat) - then take flight back to Hanoi, take someday tour in Hanoi (do not miss Halong Bay Vietnam).

    It depends on your budget but flight is best way to travel to these places

    Hi Irene,

    Regarding your trip plan I would like to recommend to do the following itinerary

    1st Stop: Ho Chi Minh City, Mekong Delta
    ( South of Vietnam )

    2. Hue & Hoi An (Ancient city of Vietnam ) - Da Nang - Nha Trang (Best Beach area of Vietnam located in Mid of Vietnam).

    3. Hanoi ( Capital of Vietnam - Plenty tour to do in here with many villages and places to explore ) - Halong Bay Vietnam (best place in the whole country - a must visit place) - Sa Pa District ( Up north to the mountain - best choice for trekking and getaway from the city ) - Hoa Lư District & Tam Coc ( Another Ancient Capital of Vietnam)


    4. Get Back to Hue to take a bus to Cambodia then from there to get to Laos
