Hello,

I am in the very begining stages of planning a trip to Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia. I was wondering what is the best time of year to travel in regards to weather?

High season is generally November-January, but there's quite a bit of different weather patterns involved. Depends exactly where you're headed. November is bad for Central Coast of Vietnam - excessive rain then, and January will typiclly be rather chilly/muddy in Sapa. Places like Bangkok and Saigon have very little variation in temp, but much more in rain patterns. I'm looking at Feb-March for N. Thailand and N. Vietnam for my own trip. I went only to Viet in March of '08 and the weather was very much like California then.

it would be a great time to visit Vietnam around February during the Tet holiday... or Chinese New Year... they have about a week of celebration there...
