This was my idea so far:
2nd Jan: Arrive HCMC
4th Jan: Leave HCMC :)
- 6th Jan: Some kind of "I travel via Mekong Delta to PP"
- 9th Jan: Stay in PP and leave to Siem Reap
- 12th Jan: Siem Reap
- 16 th Jan: Travel to Kampot and stay there
And after that I am kind of lost.
What I want to see:
- Mekong Delta - I could do that right after HCMC while travelling anyway or I could take a bus to PP straigt away and see Mekong Delta when I return (wanted to cross borders at Prek Chak/ Xa Xaia)
- Angkor, I guess :)
- Kampot and Kep - have read a lot about it and prefer to go there instead of Sihanoukville
I would save time in the beginning my going to PP right away - from Ha Tien - which route would you then suggest in order to get back to HCMC and still see a little of the Delta?
I am touring alone and would like to find a combination which is active enough in case I do not meet people (tend to get those depressive moments when alone for too long ;) crying in my beer at sundown and all that stuff :)) but realistically.
I think I will have to spend at least 2 nights in PP since a lot of the buses to SR seem to depart early in the morning.
So suggestions within the given route would be highly appreciated - thank you very much.
Arrivial in HCMC: 2nd January, noon
Departure from HCMC: 21st January, noon

1Best to go Kampot after Mekong as on way almost to PP. So HCMC, Mekong, Kampot PP, SR, PP, HCMC. You will need multi-entry visa for Vietnam.

4Ok... My suggestion. Saigon to Chau Doc. If you like you can do this over a couple of days if you want to see a bit of the Mekong delta. Fom Chau Doc you can go by boat to Phnom Penh. Then Siem Reap, back to PP, over to Kep/Kampot to relax and unwind for a few days before crossing the border at Ha Tien. If you still have some time for beaches head over to Phu Quoc, then head back to Saigon from Ha Tien.
Keep it flexible and you can spend more or less time in a place as you please. I recommend a day trip to Preah Vihear from Siem Reap if your budget allows.
I don't think you'll have any problems filling in the days.
