Itinerary HelpHi Knowledgeable Travelers,
Last minute I decided to fly to Thailand tomorrow and will land on Wednesday the 20th, and my return flight is April 1. So I have close to 6 weeks and would like to split my time up visiting Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia (or is this too much)? I would like to do some hiking in Chiang Mai, spend some time visiting the beaches and possibly the Full Moon Party in March. What would be the most logical itinerary to hit all these places? Is it best to spend a few days in BKK and then head over to cambodia for a week followed by Laos, and then back to BKK? Any help you can provide would greatly be appreciated.

1Top of my head says north to Chiang Mai, then to Luang Prabang, then to Vientiene, by speed boat to Cambodia, to Siem Reap, To Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville (for March full moon?), then back to BKK. If beaches are important leave some time at the end to go south.
Probably some other stuff along the way but that is a general route I might use for 6 weeks. Would be a somewhat slow six weeks I think not too rushed, so don't be afraid to add to it a bit

2A couple of days ago someone posted this thread with this link in it.
I couldn't be bothered reading what was in it, but I couldn't help notice his join the dots itinerary which I thought was pretty good. I did something like this a few years ago and it was great. If you don't have time for Vietnam then you could go from 14 back to 1 and then go down south to the islands.
