Dear forum members at the end of January I'm leaving to North Laos and North Thailand (also Chiang Mai). The main reason of my trip is do some scouting as next summer I will return to realize a documentary film for our museum and for the Italian Television. This time I will check places, situation, stories mainly based on arthropods before to return with the television crew. I'll appreciate very much your advices, good spots, facilities and person to visit. Even if I did travel quite a lot I haven't been before in Laos, whereas I've be different time in Thailand but only once in Chiang Mai long time ago.
