    15th – Flight - Yangon to KL (B)
    MALAYSIA

    22nd – Flight - KL to Kuching (B)
    23rd - Kuching and surrounding areas
    25th – Flight - Kuching to Mulu (B)
    26th – Pinnacles Trek and Caves at Gunung Mulu NP (B)
    29th – Flight - Mulu to Kuching (B)
    30th – Bako NP, Beaches, other stuff?!
    April 6th – Flight - Kuching to Kota Kinabalu (B)
    7th – Flight - KK to Sandakan (B)

    18th – A nice cup of tea!


    So yeah - worked a lot of it out as you can see. But Burma and Cambodia could be worked out a bit more. and if you can think of other places you like that I could go to, but aren't listed. Let me know. preferably less touristy - as a lot of these places aren't exactly "off the beaten track"!
    Cheers guys.
