    hello all... i've just booked a ticket to singapore and have randomly decided to go to laos and some cities i missed in SEA last year... i would appreciate any recommendations and advice pls... thank you
    tentative itinerary

    fly into singapore
    singapore to kuala lumpur (via bus)
    kL to phuket (via bus/train)
    phuket to chiang mai/chiang rai (via bus)
    chiang mai to luang prabang
    luang prabang - VV-vientianne

    can someone please tell me if i should start at north laos and travel south... or travel south to north?? i dont know of a really good itinerary... all i know is i want to see plain of jars, waterfalls, maybe do a short trek or two, see some stupas,

    You are doing an awful lot of bus travel. You could fly from Phuket to Udon Thani with Air Asia and then take a mini van to the Lao border. A couple of days in Vientiane, a couiple inVang Vieng about 5 in Luang Prabang with a side trip to the Plain of Jars. This is how I would organise my travels.
