Southeast Asia itinerary advise

Posted by dknee on 13/2/2011 at 02:39

Hello, My girlfriend and I are landing in Bangkok in early March and returning home from there in late May. Just looking for itinerary advice. We would like to see Northern and Southern Thailand as well as Loas and Cambodia and maybe a trip to vietnam and Indonesia. When is the best times for these places. I know its smoky in North Thailand in March and then its real hot and rainy. Would you suggest the south islands first or up north before the heat and rains come. Thanks.

March to May....say 10 weeks? All of that? Are you nuts or a newbie? OK. Don't get mad mate. But That is an awful lot. You will live on buses, trains, and whatever else you choose.

Thailand a lil Laos and a lil Cambodia sounds better. Still a bunch but if you gotta you gotta.

Thanks for the advise. I think I am going to go south to the islands for a month then to Indonesia for a month then fly back up north to loas or camodia and travel back to bankok in may. Save vietnam for next time. What about the weather in may. Any advise.

The weather in May is muggy. Hot and humid. There will be storms AND sunny days. Not to much to worry about though.
