    Hi there,

    I have 3 weeks time for travelling from the last week of November to mid-december. How is Malaysia in this time of the year? I read it's rainy-season, so does it even make sense to go there? If it does, I'm happy for some tips :)
    If it doesn't, does anybody have any suggestions what to do / where to travel? I have been to Vietnam and Thailand. I had to skip Laos and Cambodia on my last holiday, but I'm not sure if it's worth to fly over to SEA only for these two...
    How about Indonesia?

    ...and also I should mention that I'm all into nature, trekking, hiking, climbing, diving... I don't really care about shopping or tailoring or haute cuisine... streetfood and a nice sunset keep me pretty happy.
    I'm used to travel on a budged, but by now it's not as tight as it used to be...

    Yes its the rainning sesaon, the monsoon is in transition stage now and will be in full blast in december.

    Not sure about Indonesia though, but I presume its more or less the same. During this time of the year, we malaysian heads north for holidays,.. North Thailand, Laos and cambodia.

    It's not rainy season normally on the west coast of peninsula Malaysia from around mid Nov on. So you can look to nice weather at Langkawi, Penang and other places there. The east coast in contrast is usually very wet with the ne monsoon. Not too sure about Borneo Malaysia - never been there.
    Nice thing about Langkawi is that you can hop on a scheduled ferry and go across to the nearby Thai islands of Ko Lipe and Ko Adang - which are also pretty sweet locations.

    All the Andaman coast of Thailand should be in dry season by then. Ditto the eastern and central Gulf plus the North. The exception is the southern Gulf coast which like the east coast of Malaysia further south is normally copping the ne monsoon.
