Somewhere in South East Asia to recover from foot fracture?

    Hi,
    My sabbatical leave is starting in mid October. However, I managed to get a comminuted fracture on my foot which I was told would take two months to recover. Even though I should be off the aircast beginning of October, I was told to take it easy till end of the month. Since my company is unwilling to push back the start date of my sabbatical leave, I was thinking of going to South East Asia in mid October as planned and maybe sit on a beach or somewhere relaxing for two weeks. Can someone please recommend such a place? Where public transport is quite good or getting around is easy so there wouldn't be as much walking involved (I'm not suggesting no walking involved just perhaps no trekking or really long distances between facilities) and also fairly close to a good hospital, just in case? I was planning on going to Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and possibly Myanmar and Indonesia, time letting, for about two months or so, so I guess somewhere in those countries would be great! Also if anybody has suggested itineraries and/or tips, they would be most welcome! It will be the first time I go backpacking and also the first time as a female solo traveller.
    Thank you so much.

    Even without a fracture that's a lot of ground to cover in a coupla months:-)

    That said, kicking off with a Thai island with good transport connections and relatively close to excellent health care -- I'd be leaning towards Ko Samet a few hours to the east of Bangkok.

    For general itinerary questions, the trip planner is a good starting point.

    Really? Maybe I should just stick to the four then. I was hoping to go reasonably slowly. But by the time I start the trip properly in November, it would have been two months so hopefully my foot would have recovered by then!

    Thank you so much for the suggestion, it's been hard to come by one so far!
