we would like to go to Laos and Myanmar.
How many days should we spend in each?
Which are the best routes?
Is Airasia the best way to fly? without killing the wallet?
Good places to stay in say Bagan,Yangon,Vientiane and Luang Prabang or others.
We know this is the best board for great ideas. Thanks in advance for any advice/help!

6Thanks for the quick response. ok- I think we might just do one country.
Also, we have been to Cambodia and Vietnam ten years ago. We chose Laos and Myanmar because we wanted to see them before they became completly develoed.
If we go to Myanmar any sugestions on route, time in each place,hotels, transport Etc..
I hear booking can be chalenging.
We are open to ideas.
Thank you for your time and effort.
