    Crap idea or not? The weather charts I’ve looked at imply that I’ll either be soaked by the immense humidity or the monsoon rains, but two mates that went at that time of year (different trips) both got cracking conditions.

    Anyone here been over in that direction at that time of year? If I can figure out if it’s worth it for the weather, at least then I can try and start choosing where to go!

    Cheers

    South easia is a large area, do you have any specific countries in mind as there is a huge differences between (for example) Vietnam, North China and Singapore?
    For example, in Hong kong it tends to be hot with high humidity and there is a high chance of Typhoons hitting, I imagine Bali though would be very pleasant (but hot).

    Yep, as above.

    Singapore in July is hot. And wet. Astonishingly powerful rainstorms lash down, then within ten minutes everything’s dry again, but still damned hot. And humid.

    But the food….! 🙂

    Love the food already, going to come back fat 🙂

    Dammit, thought the weather was relatively consistent across the area. Most likely would be touring Thailand or Vietnam, but also open to suggestions

    Was in Malaysia and Thailand for 3 weeks last August. Were expecting monsoons every day, but really wasn’t that bad at all, had rain a few days but not nearly every day, and it didn’t upset our plans much at all, just meant we had to sit under shelter for an hour until it passed.

    Oh and SE Asia is amazing.

    We are going to Bali for 2 1/2 weeks in June on our honeymoon. We have been told that it’s a great time of year to visit weather wise.

    We stop in Singapore on the way back for a couple of nights. Will be posting some ‘recommend me things to do/places to eat &drink’ type threads closer the time I should think so maybe picking people’s minds then!

    Bali huh, more of a beach holiday compared to elsewhere? Need lots of stuff to do so we don’t get bored silly

    Will be posting some ‘recommend me things to do/places to eat &drink’ type threads closer the time

    Please do, lah. (See what I did there? 🙂 )

    Plenty of SIN knowledge to be had here. Ben, of this ‘ere parish lives out there, and I, among others, spend a lot of time there.

    FWIW –
    Chilli Crab at Long Beach, Dempsey
    Xia Long Bao at Din Tai Fung, Raffles Plaza
    Beers at Brotzeit, just outside Raffles Plaza
    Food of all sorts on Smith St in Chinatown. Hometown is my pick of the places there. Looks awful, tastes amazing! Just some formica topped tables, but great food.
    Maxwell Hawker’s market – street food snackage!

    Need lots of stuff to do so we don’t get bored silly

    Honeymoon – I suspect they’ll find plenty to keep themselves occupied….

    We are actually having 5 days on Lombok as a chill out beach type holiday to begin with, and spend some quality time together!

    We then have 2 nights on Gili, the small island between Bali and Lombok to do some snorkelling etc.

    Then 5 nights near Ubud in Bali and I’m hoping to do some things like hike up the volcano and do a mountain bike ride back down too.

    Then 2 nights in Singapore to finish off.

    Thanks for the recommendations already flashy, will pick brains closer to the time too!

    I went to singapore for a week, then on to Bali then back to Singapore for another week end June/beginning of July and the weather was fine, hot but not unbearable and we got very little rain in Bali. We may have been lucky though.

    Still gotta have something to do when you come up for air. Incidentally mine’s a honeymoon too.

    Crispo, that’s the sort of plan we’ve been thinking of, just the actual destination that’s escaping me at the moment.
