    Hi all. I am
    Looking to take a 3 week trip over late December early January and was looking for some advice.

    Currently, I am between indonesia, Philippines and Malaysia for this trip, the focus will be mostly on diving, but beach time and some exploring/ eating are also important.

    I am coming here for help. I have noticed that this is the rainy season In parts if Malaysia? As well as indo and ph.

    Does anyone have recommendations on what would likely give me a combo of the best diving/ most sun days? I was in indonesia a few years ago near the end of the rainy season and loved it. It was my original plan but the rain has deterred me. I am considering Thailand but just did a Thai trip last year and would like something else. Any advice Is appreciated as I am getting a headache from searching and searching and searching and searching...

    East coast of Malaysia is monsoon during that time and diving won't be very good. West coast should be good though so it depends where in Malaysia you were planning to go.

    Im open to anywhere where it's warm and diving is good and fairly inexpensive. I'm
    Also considering ecuador or Belize, but am really into Asia and have a tough time moving away from that idea.

    I think, Thailand would be better for Brute. You may enjoy this trip in Thailand. Wishing you a very enjoyable trip!
