Hi Broder (and others),
Could you provide suggestions on our itinerary please?
My wife and I have been to CR (but not CR) over 20 years ago and will be travelling into the region from Siem Reap arriving early Saturday afternoon.
The only constraint we have is that we need to be at Chiang Khong by Tuesday night to take the Nagi to LP Wednesaday am.
Whilst I am still filling in more of the activities to do my current thinking is to fly into CR
Saturday - city tour and night markets,
Sunday - wat Chedi/wat Phra (we dont necessariy need to include elephants or hill tribes this trip)
Monday - early VIP bus to CR followed by afternoon city sights tour (white temple etc). but I am concerned we will miss the opportunity for some spectacular national parks and so I am thinking a tour and drop off at CM, rather than bus between CM and CR is worth considering?
Tuesday - personal regional tour (Mae Salong, Ciang Saen, Home of Opium, maybe golden triangle) and get dropped off at Chiang Khong around 5:00 (instead of catching a bus there) Is this a reasonable proposition to ask of a tour guide/driver?
