    I'm planning a five week trip to Thailand + a few other destinations in SE Asia. I'm trying to figure out which other countries I should include, along with Thailand: Laos and Cambodia or Malaysia and Singapore. And whether I should add any time in Vietnam. Or any other amazing places to see.

    I really love snorkelling, so will be spending a few days on a live aboard in the Similan and Surin Islands and then heading out to Bangkok to continue the rest of my trip.

    I also love animals and would love to have the opportunity to see some animals in their natural habitats. Elephants, monkeys, birds, etc.

    I'd like to do some trekking as well.

    I'm not into the party scene, but do like some night time activity (markets, etc). I'm a solo female traveller, so I also need to be aware of safety.

    Any suggestions on how to spend my time in SE Asia?

    Virtually any town in Thailand has a night market for eating and they are well worth visiting and you would be safe visiting these (although take normal precautions and keep an eye on valuables as you would anywhere else busy)

    Seeing (wild) animals in their natural habitat can be hard although you will find monkeys in towns like Lop Buri or Pratchup Kiri Khan and around temples elsewhere.

    With 5 weeks I would limit the countiries to Thailand + one other at the most.
