    Have to say this forum has been really helpful with my planning.I am so glad I've found this website.

    I'll be going on a solo trip around SE Asia, starting from BKK on the 10 March.

    From reading around the forum, March/April isn't a good time to visit N.Thailand/ Laos because of the smoke and dust. So, I've changed my itinerary to look like this:

    Thailand(1 week) - Cambodia(2 weeks) - Vietnam(3 weeks) - Laos(2 weeks) - Thailand (3 weeks) - Malysia and Singapore(3 weeks)

    The duration of stays are very rough and can change during the trip, but fo they sound about right?

    I would like to do some scuba diving, shall I leave this at the end of the trip? I will probably learn on Ko Tao. Would it be less crowded in March or May/June? Or any other suggestions would be welcome.

    hi, looks like a pretty good set-up you've got going on there... i've got about 3 months of time as well, and would like to visit each country just as you have listed there... mine will be about early april or so...

    will check back on this and see what others recommend/suggest...

    The smoke and dust may be a problem but remember that April 13th - 15th is Songkran - New Year in Thailand and Laos. The Water-splashing festival is really something you shouldn't miss if you're going to be traveling around SE Asia at the time. Though i've heard it gets a little old by day 3, I also hear it is a memorable event. I'll caveat this with the fact that I've never been myself, but I've always wanted too - just can't get the time off teaching . . . though it'll be scorching hot.

    you said you have 12 weeks but you want to cover

    "Thailand(1 week) - Cambodia(2 weeks) - Vietnam(3 weeks) - Laos(2 weeks) - Thailand (3 weeks) - Malysia and Singapore(3 weeks)"

    thats 1-2-3-2-3-3 = 15 weeks
