G Adventures has a packing checklist for each trip. It's near the middle of this page for your trip: http://www.gadventures.com/trips/indoch ... 2/details/

There are many posts on here about appropriate size of backpack, so look around a bit. Most people will say the less you bring, the better.

Hi
I agree with Sarah about bringing less. You can buy anything you want in Thailand (clothes, shoes, toiletries) so definitely don't overpack. Getting clothes laundered is ridiculously cheap. Cool, casual and comfortable is the way to go. My only suggestion is at least one top with sleeves and something that covers your knees for temples. Pack what you think you'll need for a week and that will be plenty.

hey! Im heading to vietnam, cambodia and thailand soon (yay!) and gona be away for about 8 weeks all up. Ive been freaking out a wee bit about what to pack coz you read so much on here and different websites and I always over pack haha. Anyways I found a blog written by a girl and im following her list as I dont really think its to much. She advised to take 2 pairs of shorts, 2 singlets, 2 tshirts, 2 bikinis, 2 dresses, 2 bras, 7 pairs of undies, a pair of tights and 1 long sleeve light top and Im just going to take flipflops for footwear. Think that was all. You might want to change it a bit as you're away for 4 weeks.
Hope this helps :)
