Inquiry Submission By 8sfgal

Hello, we are planning an extended family trip from Dec 27-Jan 11 (including 4 30-something adults, 2 toddlers & 2 grandparents in their 60s/70s). I?ve read through many posts & got a lot of great information but would love advice on finalizing the Cambodia part of the itinerary below. We prefer culture &, nature over nightlife or big cities. we like to travel slow, so I?ve decided to skip Phnom Penh for this trip & stay in the SR area.

Battambang seems like a nice place to spend 2 nights & relax in the countryside but is the travel to & from SR going to be too much for the time we have (especially given road construction some of the other posts mentioned)? Should we skip Battambang & stay in SR longer?

Dec 27: Arrive in Siem Reap early AM

Dec 27-Dec 30: Siem Reap (incl. Angkor temples & Kampong Khlean)

Dec 31-Jan 2: Battambang

Jan 2: Battambang to Hoi An (Drive to SR, fly to Da Nang, Drive to Hoi An)

Jan 3 – Jan 5: Hoi An

Jan 6: Fly Hoi An to Hanoi

Jan 7: Hanoi

Jan 8 – Jan 9: Overnight in Lan Ha Bay

Jan 10: Hanoi

Jan 11: Depart
