Itinerary (Updated 8/13)

Here I am posting the researches I’ve collected and summarized for our 2 weeks getaway to Ho Chi Minh & Siem Reap from September 13-September27, 2018. We were originally planning to go to more places like Nha Trang in Vietnam and Sihanoukville in Cambodia, but after some extensive plannings on the routes and limited days available for us, we’ve decided to focus on fewer spots in order to increase the quality of this journey.
