June to October is the monsoon season for various parts of Asia so spells of very heavy rain is normal. You could check the weather in nearby countries but that can change by the day or week so maybe more rain. Down Under is winter and the Caribbean is in it's hurricane season. You want good weather, try southern Europe (northern Europe has been good for the last few weeks. It was sun and 33.C here today).

I vote you check out Bali. Dry season runs from April to Sept. Probably the driest place to be right now in SEA.

Brilliant weather on the islands in the Gulf of Thailand. Clear blue skies above Koh Chang for the last couple of days and it is looking fine for the rest of the week as well.

I agree with vegasmike6. Bali is the place to head for since their dry season is running right now which will end in August.

From May to June Bali got the rain peak, and Thailand got her rain peak from June untill July. So I suggest you to go for Bali first, in Bali you can travelling for 5-6 days. After Bali you can go to Thailand, so you can meet 70% sunny weather every place you go. For your information, the best month to visit Bali is early July.
