Tour of SE Asia - where and at what time

Posted by dispoiler on 26/11/2009 at 22:54

Hello everyone..this is my first post so bare with me...

I am planning to visit S/E Asia setting off in mid/late April. I want to go to Burma, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand, however my time scale is upwards of a year..

So my question really is, which countries should I go to at which points in time? I dont want to pin myself down to s specific schedule but I also dont want to miss Angkor Wat at its best or get stuck in the north of Thailand during a monsoon.

It seems that its a general consensus that the best time to see almost all of these countries is between Nov-March, but with going in mid april I will have missed this until the next Nov, and will also be hitting the rainy season.

So, whats good in the dry season and whats good in the rainy season? I really want to make the most of this colossal adventure...

many thanks,
