We're heading to Thailand (North) in mid May, then
Laos - end of May through to beginning of June
Cambodia - beginning of June
Vietname (South to North) - mid June through to beginning of July
-fly out of Hanoi on 12th July.
My question is... have we chosen the most absurd time to hit this region in terms of rain? We have the old ponchos handy but I don't fancy being swept down the Mekong. Obviously not going to cancel anything but would rather be PREPARED!
Appreciate there's info for each country on this site but some of it conflicts with info from other sites so looking at getting some first hand info!

Yup you'll be travelling in wet season. I don't think that is a great mistake tho. They'll be fewer travellers for sure and, especially in Laos, transport may have a few more delays. But on the upside, Angkor Wat is awesome in the wet!
Note also that wet season generally isn't all day torrential downpours but rather a few hours of heavy rain, most days.
Thanks! This is good news Somsai!
I'm so excited, only 7 weeks till we fly!!
