I am going to SEA for a month in february and Im not sure what kind of pants i should take.
I was only planning to take one pair of pants and buy a sarong when i get to Bangkok.
The trouble is that I am very small and im finding it very hard to find pants in the Travel shops.
Do i need to get pants from travel shops? I will need them to be quick dry as I was only taking one pair.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what is good to take?

Pack 1 pair of quick-dry pants (for hiking, jungle trips, etc.) plus whatever shorts you like to wear.
You can buy lots of bottoms on arrival. The Thai gals are small too, so you should have an easy time finding shorts, sarongs, skirts, fisherman pants, etc.
You don't say where in SEA. Up north it's cold in February. I agree with idream on size - should be a non-factor.
Why are you planning on bringing only one pair of pants though?

I am going from Bangkok to Cambodia and then up to the top of Vietnam.
I only wanted to bring one pair of pants and a pair of shorts over as I want to buy some when i get over there.

I usually take a pair of these things ... http://www.columbia.com/womens-cargo-pants-hiking-trail/women-pants-performanceactive,default,sc.html?sz=1&start=6
They are light, quick-drying, don't wrinkle much, and are perfect for going into (and out of) temples, onto buses, etc.
Take a pair of jeans - it's cool in February.
