Burma or Laos.

Jump to last reply

I have a bit of a dilemma.......

I'm heading to Bangkok and had chosen to visit Laos for a week on my upcoming trip in October. I opted for Laos as it's not easy to get international air connections to the country (compared to flying to Burma or Vietnam), it will require less time to visit and a visa on arrival is quick and easy.

Due to availability of FF tickets I'm now adding three days onto my trip. I will be in Bangkok for exactly 16 days (not including arrival and departure days) and need to fill in the blanks for a side trip from Bangkok. My options are:-

Option 1,

6 days in Bangkok, 7 in Laos and 3 in Chiang Mai Besides the Laos hotels nothing is booked, so I have the flexibility of cancelling my reservations and reworking my itinerary.

Option 2,

Skip Laos entirely, and head off the Burma for 10 - 12 days and spend the remainder of the time in Bangkok.

I'd like to hear from people who have been to both Burma and Laos. I'm fully aware Burma is changing rapidly. I have some very stressful personal issues at present, and I'm not sure I'd be up for traveling independently in a less developed country like Burma at present. I've traveled extensively and couldn't handle some of the destinations I've been to due to the present circumstances. For this reason I keep telling myself to stick to Laos.

Then, again, I have the opportunity to visit Burma before it's commercialized. Getting time off in October in future years is a definite no because of my job responsibilities. And, it'll be difficult to take an extended time off. For these reasons, I'm saying to myself. go to Burma and leave Laos.

How challenging is travelling in Burma? Are flight schedules changed (or cancelled) and the last minute? What are the primary challenges travellers face in Burma?

Please advise, if I opt to change Laos to Burma I need to make these changes asap and apply for my Burmese visa.

Thank you.
