laos/vietnam or laos/cambodia or..Hello everyone,
at this moment I am trying to make plans for this summer with a friend of mine but we can't figure out what to do. Here's the situation, we are two young females who are going to asia for 4 weeks for our first time this summer. We are mainly interested in nature, but also in culture. And offcourse we would like to go to some party now and then. We are flying around 25 june and we're going back for around 25 july. The problem is that we don't really know what countries to choose because we have already heard so many different opinions. Our first thought would be Vietnam, but we would also really like to see Laos, but we definitely don't want to rush during our trip so 4 weeks for vietnam and laos might be too short? Our second plan might be Cambodia and Laos, but isn't this too rushed either? Or would you recommend to pick just one country? And what country would that be? A
Also, as we are aware that the rain season is due in june/july, what country would you recommend taking this into account? Oh and we are able to fly to Ho Chi Min or Phnom Penh.

1Sorry i don't offer much information but me and a friend are questioning almost the exact same trip at the same dates! You guys teachers by any chance? Anyway we have 4-5 weeks to see Vietnam, Cambodia and/or Lao with the plan to fly into Hanoi. Also seeking recommendations for which places if not all of them and a possible round route from Hanoi.
Sorry for jumping on your band wagon Tararoses! :-D

2look to see where average rainfall is least in July given that you are mainly interested in Nature
You could easily spend all your time in one country. If you are going to Laos and or Cambodia might be better to fly to and from bangkok
You could do cambodia and then southern Laos or cambodia and the mekong delta or Laos and N vietnam
All the countries are great so check out the weather have a look at a guide book for each country and narrow down the choices and remember that travel in the rainy season can be problematic and subject to even ore delays than normal

34 weeks is enough time to travel to three of Laos- Cambodia- Vietnam with the highlight places in these countries.
You travel to Cambodia first (Visit Siem Reap- Phnom Penh) for 5 days then fly to Vietnam for 12 days to visit all of the famous places in Vietnam before fly to Vientiane (Laos) to stay there around 5 days . Minimum is 21 days is enough!
