forest monasteries in Myanmar, India, Thailand and Cambodia

Sorry if the question has been raised already, but can anyone indicate forest monasteries where monks practice sitting meditation seriously (at least 10h a day) and where a westerner could stay for a while to meditate and learn about the monk's life without becoming a monk?

I would be interested about places in Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia and India.

Thank you :meditate:
