I am planning to visit Laos during Dec 2012. I would appreciate some inputs from experts here. I am looking at travelling
I usually try to do less touristy places and activities. I prefer nature, landscapes, a history and culture. I am not into museums, seeing crafts etc.
I am also into photography and would love to photograph country side, nature, dance forms and monuments.
Keeping this in mind what would you recommend for the following:
a. Length of time I should plan for Dec? I am open to extending my trip
b. is there any tour operators who can customize trips for me (I usually do not take their services as they make you do a lot of touristy stuff)
c. How are homestays in Laos or should i stick to hotels and guesthouses?
d.Does it make sense to also visit Cambodia for 3 days along with Laos?
Thanks in advance.
