Hi
Firstly, thank you for taking the time to read this.

I am planning on leaving this month (March) till the end of May to travel around Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.

BUT didn't factor in the scorching weather and humidity/rainy season and now I'm stuck on whether to go or not. I was really hoping you guys could suggest the best route to take in the highlights of these countries at the most pleasant times.

Thanks for any help you can provide
Thanks in advance :)

If the weather is a problem do you plan to put off the trip then? If so, some areas are at their best in October/November. I've also had great weather in February, but Northern Laos, Northern Vietnam, and parts of Northern Thailand can get mighty chilly that time of year.

what is plan B if you don't go? like casey says, you'll likely find better weather later in the year. but if the option is to not go, i'd say go anyway and just take your chances. you can work around the weather and find ways to cope with the heat. don't put off until tomorrow... particularly if you don't know when tomorrow may come.
