Thailand, Cambodia, Laos

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip the last 2 weeks of December. Based on all the wonderful postings I have read on this site I have planned the trip as follows:
2 days Bkk
2 days Chiang Mai
3 days Luang Prabang
4 days Siem Reap
1 day BKK
This doesn't include the days we travel between cities and in some cases we will have an extra 1/2 as well.

I wanted to know if anyone has used Tiger Trails in either Thailand or Laos. This trekking company has a 2 or 3 day Trek around LP that sounds pretty good but there aren't a lot of reviews to go on in judging the trek itself or the accommodations (staying in tribal villages). We chose LP over CM for trekking as several of the posts on this site indicated the touristy quality around CM and the tribal villages, the lack of authenticity and LP sounded a bit less travelled. Any comments on this? Would a one day trek be sufficient and if so, any recommendations on an outfitter or guide for that?

I would like to take the boat trip on Tonle Sap - Kompong Khleang in particular - again less travelled to. Any recommendations on who to use or a better place to go?

I would like to take a cooking class in CM. Any recommendations? And visiting an elephant camp - in Thailand or Laos - which is better?

Can anyone recommend a private guide for Angkor Wat? Do we need guides any other place?

And lastly, since the Discovery Pass is unavailable during the time I will be traveling I plan on making roundtrip flights and need to know whether there are any "customs" delays when traveling between Cambodia/Thailand and Laos/Thailand so I can plan the connecting flights accordingly.

If you have any other ideas, recommendations or changes you think I should make please let me know. Again, thank you for your help in putting this together.
