Some general information:
Hanoi is located in the northern part of Vietnam and experience four seasons. If you're not used to hot temperatures or want to get away from the summer heat, try visiting during in the winter. For transportation, Hanoi is pretty walkable but if you're up for it, you can rent a motorbike to roam around the streets, although traffic can be a headache sometimes.
Cambodia is a country that has only two seasons - dry and wet. I would personally suggest visiting Cambodia during the dry season when there would be clear skies to take the beautiful photos. When in Cambodia, you won’t have to worry about exchanging US dollars to Cambodian riel since they accept USD for most of the places, in bills. Any amount smaller than $1 will be given in Cambodian riel. For transportation, you can find a tuktuk at almost every corner.
