    Unless you've been before, I think its crazy to visit Cambodia and not go to Siem Reap. I can only say for Cambodia and Laos, but yeah you will see different things in each country. The architecture especially. Scenery wise its pretty similar.

    'You can go Banlung to 4000 islands. No need to go back to kratie.'

    Is that a straight trip or do you mean get a bus to Stung Treng and then another on to Laos?
    Things must have moved on up there since i was last in Ban Lung when there was only one bus a day for Stung Treng which left at 6a.m.After failing to get up for it 2 days in a row we finally got out by taxi.

    O.P. (I'll call you that because I'm surprised at your nickname; either you speak Spanish and your being extremely self-deprecating or you haven't got a clue what it means :-) )

    Days 2 and 3 of your trip is quite a long haul especially if you are going on public transport. Cambodian buses tend to stop pretty frequently and often the buses are crocks so it will be tiring.
    I did the same trip stopping at Kratie about 6 weeks ago.

    The itinerary has evolved and changed since being posted 2 months ago.

    Have dropped Cambodia completely.

    In Laos, we will use Luang Prabang as a base for 5-6 days of touring.


    In Yunnan, we are doing Tiger Leaping Gorge and the Rice Terraces.


    Burma is staying pretty much as is.
