Traveling to Myanmar then Thailand go trekking to villages

Jump to last reply

First off love these valuable forums and the generosity of people sharing their experiences.

Here goes:

Planning on 10 - 14 days of travel in Myanmar before heading into Thailand. Then fly out of Bangkok November 30th back home.

Will land in Rangoon and then head up north and then from there into Thailand. Chiang Mai, and Chiang Rai. Then down to Bangkok and the islands and home.

One of my hopes is to go trekking and visit villages to get a sense of life in Myanmar and Thailand. Get off the tourist road so to speak. Possibly do home stays in villages. Any suggestions for who to contact to make this happen? Travel agencies that are experience in this area? Is it safe? I've heard that some areas of northern Myanmar isn't safe, but hard to get accurate information on this.

I am finding out that I should make my travel plans before visiting the country. Then make my flights once I'm in the country. And looking for guest houses and "local places to stay". Do not want to stay in "Holiday Inn like places". So I welcome suggestions here also.

If you have any contacts or suggestions or possible thoughts you may of done, I'd welcome your thoughts.

Best wishes, Stuart
