    I will travel solo in March in Cambodia and Laos
    My plan will be following draft itinerary:

    16 March, arrive Saigon
    17 March, Sai gon
    18 March, Phnom Penh
    19 March, Phnom Penh
    20 March, Phnom Penh - Siem Reap
    21 March, Siem Ream
    22 March, Siem Reap
    22 March, Vientiane
    23 March, Vientiane – Luang prabang
    24 March, Luang Prabang
    25 March, Luang prabang – DBP

    1. Does anyone recommend a clean, safe guesthouse following itinerary?
    2. Did anyone do this trip before?
    3. It would be great if someone can become a companion with me on this trip.
    4. I am packpacker traveler, just wanna see real life experiences like local people.

    Manlyboy, are you still looking for info on places to stay?

    In Vientiane the Mali Namphu is clean and well priced. Everything in Vientiane is over inflated. Reserve in advace if you will be getting into the city late. In LP, its worth it to walk around and shop prices and amenities. I paid 70000 kip for a room with A/C, a new soft bed (which is RARE in Laos)and a balcony over looking the mekong. My next door neighbor booked on line and paid $29 USD. If you are looking for cheap try Sok-dee Guesthouse it is up an side street from the mekong. Most cheap and clean places get taken, around 16:00-17:30, when "farang boats" from the chiangmai land. In Siem Reap I stayed at the Potted Palm (I booked in advance b/c I was going to get there late) It was clean, comfortable with A/c and well priced $10. Good Luck!! I'm heading back to Laos via BKK March 18th.
