Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand - overview of the trip

Trip to Southeast Asia was for our honeymoon, so we may have spent a bit more money than we usually do. Sometimes we treated ourselves with special things and we traveled slowly. Our main goal was to see the Angkor temples in Cambodia and of course to rest for a few days on a nice beach in Thailand. Everything else that we saw and experienced was just a bonus :)
