This trip was fantastic: all included activities were great (Angkor Wat at sunrise is sublime and Halong Bay was breathtaking) but the most fun was always outside large cities: bike ride on an island outside Kompong Cham, bike ride around the rice paddies in Hoi An, jungle walk and waterfall swim in Chambok homestay, boat trips at Sihanoukville and Nah Trang. I think the 'adventure travel' aspect should be expanded. I could have honestly skipped Saigon and Hanoi. One little tip- always carry tissues: most public toilets do not have paper.
