    definitely Laos, cambodia doesn;t offer anything better except the temples near Siem reap. Laos just has a more relaxed atmosphere, better scenery and is much cheaper too. Plus good activities, especially at vang vieng

    Sa bai dee! (hello)LAOS! It was my absolute favorite, if I was to head back to Asia this would be the country I would go back for!The people are so laid back and friendly and it wasnt as pushy as other places I thought! Loved it. Luang Prabang was great and also Vang Vieng! I would have loved more time in the capital on our tour however it was NYE and we flew out the next morning!
