Month in Cambodia and Laos - January 2017

Jump to last reply

Hello......We are a married couple in our early 60's. We are active and able to walk lots and climb stairs easily.

Nature is a high priority. We like good food, wine, and beer. We enjoy the arts.

We are willing to pay more for accommodations if there is a special property. We enjoy nice pools, comfy spots to "hang out", candlelit romantic atmosphere.

This is our first time in Cambodia and Laos. We have traveled in several developing countries and appreciate learning about people and their customs. We like taking the time to enjoy sights, people, and not rushing around.

We like independence, private car tours, but public buses between cities is fine if the schedule is practical.

How does this itinerary look? Please recommend the best way to transit from one place to another. What inter-city airlines do you recommend?
Any sights we shouldn't miss that may not be in guide books?
Restaurants we shouldn't miss?
Tour guide/drivers?
Stay longer or shorter in these places?

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
