Me and 3 friends are doing a 2 week trip to Cambodia and Vietnam and would like some ideas for things we shouldn't miss.
So far we only have Angkor Wat. We wanna do some snorkeling and/or diving, stay near a few gorgeous beaches but aren't really sure beyond that.

1Unfortunately, with only 2 weeks you will have to miss things, especially if you want to spend some of the time on the beach.
In Cambodia you must see the sights around Phnom Penh.. Killing fields, S21 etc. Sihanoukville is a popular spot with beaches clubs and diving/snorkeling (although not world class).
Vietnam is a very long country and you may be better flying stretches to save time. HCMC is a must, Mui Ne or Nha Trang for beaches Hoi An for culture and Hanoi to include Halong Bay. I doubt you'll have time for any more, you'll probably not even get to all those places. Enjoy.

2Agree wit #1, Even two weeks for be a rush just for Vietnam alone. But if you have only two weeks..
Maybe head off to a local travel agent or look online for organised tours. Not to actually do the tour, but these will give you known itineraries, routes, highlights, timeframes etc. But with independent travelling, you will have to add a day or three, as time is taken up with finding accommodation, booking transport etc, but it's twice the fun and half the cost.
