Me and my boyfriend are wanting to go travelling for 5 weeks in june/july this year, yet we are unsure of where would be better to visit either, cambodia and vietnam or Indonesia/singapore? I have always wanted to go to cambodia and Vietnam but some have said the weather may put us off? where in Indonesia it will be very good weather. We are unsure where is best for two 21 year olds wanting to travel to see things and experience culture, relax and the perhaps cheaper option? I cant decide where would be better to go!

The bus costs between $8 and $12 and takes six hours normally from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh. You can catch bus at station in Preah Sihanouk Boulevard, Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Statistically June/July is wet season in Cambodia/Vietnam, but that doesn't mean it rains all the time. More like a few thundershowers mixed with otherwise warm mixed/sunny spells. It might rain all day sometimes but usually not. I wouldn't let that alone determine where you choose to go. Tons of visitors travel the region during those months. Meanwhile yep, Indonesia is having it's drier season June/July. Singapore seems to have just one season - steamy hot and overcast year round. But again I would focus on what kind of experience you're looking for, rather than base it on weather statistics. "experience culture, relax and the perhaps cheaper" could be anywhere in the region.
