    AOTG: No real reason for avoiding HCM city but although its vibes are different from Hanoi it is as you say, another big city. Just thought the mix of HoiAn/Hue would more relaxing & interesting for a few days stay.

    Given your reaction to HalongBay & your tight timing I’d say go with that, plus your Ankor visit this time round

    AOTG. Angkor Wat is definitely worth a visit, there are also lots of other temples in the area, can easily take up a leisurely 2 days to view the important ones

    Also, a great tip from the knowledgable guide that took us round. Plan to visit Angkor Wat around noon. You will be met with a flood of people leaving the complex and heading to lunch in their tour groups. You will have the main complex (almost) to yourself

    Thanks for that David – would you happen to have the contact details for the guide? I can be reached on Monaco7 at bt openworld dot com.

    Hi AOTG. We first did Angkor Wat about 6 years ago and found the guide through Tripadvisor advice. Sorry, don’t have the details anymore

    We did go back 3 years ago, this time we advised the driver (no guide this time) to take us there at noon and we had the same experience

    I would not travel to Myanmar or Southern Thailand in September. It is still the monsoon season. Until end of September you can count with a wet load from the sky any moment. Regards from RGN
