Assistance 8 Day Route for Laos-Cambodia-Vietnam-Myanmar Feb - Cambodia Forum
Could you please help me schedule my 8-day journey in February in Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Myanmar? This is my initial plan: But I' ve already been to Thailand, so I chose to remove Thailand from my travel schedule and stay in places I haven't been, including Myanmar instead.
So, now I'm considering coming to Laos. Then from Laos, can I go directly to Cambodia without having to go to BKK? What would my means of transportation be by road from Vietnam to Myanmar? Now I' m leaving Myanmar. I' m gonna go backpacker-style and be in one place for two nights.
When you want to make such a journey, you have to research. There' s no Myanmar-Laos check point, so you have to drive through the North. Borders between Thailand and Laos and Cambodia and its neighbours are locked at nights, i.e. no crossings using sleeper railways, delivery trucks or coaches.
There' re no connections between Vietnam and Cambodia. Journey from Vientiane to Phnom Penh without Thailand is 20h. From Vientiane to Hanoi the coach lasts 20h. From Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City the journey lasts 33h. I can see now why the railway from BKK to Laos is at 8:30 pm so that you will arrive in Laos in the mornings when the migration office opens.
Hmm, so I'll probably follow my initial schedule and then not involve Myanmar, as every journey must come from Thailand. Now that you have cut it down to three, it will be a complete squandering of your precious resources. The best thing is to take a flight to Luang Prabang, stay there for 2 nights, then to Siem Reap, stay 2 nights and then return to Bangkok.
You can drive from Laos to Cambodia, but from Vientiane, where I suppose it will take 14-16 hrs to get to the frontier, then where are you going? What is your plan to travel to Myanmar from Vietnam?
