Going to Laos and Cambodia

Since my trip to Vietnam 2 years ago, I have been longing to travel to Cambodia. Obviously the stunning temples of Angkor are the main draw for me to Cambodia but I am also curious to know more about the Cambodians who have suffered a tragic recent past at the hands of the Khmer Rouge.

Compared to Cambodia, Laos is fairly unknown to me except that it is a secluded landlocked communist country. In fact the initial reason to include Laos in my itinerary is because I have to clear 3 weeks of vacation leaves in December. Laos seem a nice complement to Cambodia. I am amazed to discover in my trip research that it claim rugged natural beauty and rich ethnic diversity. It may truly be Southeast Asia's best kept secret.
