i am lookin at setting off around the world in july, with me travelling around thailand, malaysia, loas, vietnam, cambodia and bali between sept to mid dec.
Everywhere I look states that it is the monsson season, and rtw ticket quotes only give a price from dec to jun......does anyone know why this is? Is it a real bad thing to travel se asia between sept and dec, or will there be some sun (allowing me to enjoy the islands) web, andreading lonely planet dont really say whether it a good thing or not

Monsoon is a misunderstood does not mean all rain and no sunshine during the "monsoon period" throughout malaysia, for instance, the east coast states have rainy period, usually year end (that is, december-jan), and in cambodia, vietnam ( aug-oct)...southern thailand same as malaysia, central and northern thailand , usually sept-nov...then again, being tropical countries, they also have tropical thunderstorms during the transitional period, usually april-july.

so dont let the monsoon period spoil your travel plans..

have fun.

Probably someone quoted the last post of Nikunj82 as spam because there is an emailadress in it.

Sorry for the confusion, someone else's post was flagged as spam as he's posted it in 15 or so threads. Going through them now to delete... :)
