Interesting choices. I've been to all three countries. I would not go to Burma (Myanmar) unless you have not been reading the news. It is difficult to not support the regime through your visit if you are a tourist, which I was not. Guatemala is wonderful and beautiful, particularly Quetzaltenango (Xela). Laos is incredible, laid back, beautiful. Either of these two countries would be great.

I went to both Guatemala and Laos and love both countries.
Both hae kept their authenticity as they haven't suffered yet of mass tourism and have great landscapes, offering some of the most scenic travel routes. Plus, people are genuinely nice :-)
