Winter is high season for a reason - it's fairly dry. Each country has it's own unique weather patterns, but there's no better time for SE Asia than January. You need to work around holiday closures at the beginning of Feb (Chinese NY and TET). Here's weather info for Thailand.

All three countries are pretty dry in January, you won't see much rain.

North Vietnam could be a bit cold.

Hi,

Even just in Thailand the rainy season hits at different parts on different months so you may spend your time chasing the sunshine. To be honest I travelled during the wet season and mainly found that you would get a heavy down pour in the morning and the rest of the day would clear up and was quite pleasant. A good web site to check out the weather in terms of rainfall temperature and humidity month by month by location is on the Travel fish website. I used this a lot to plan where to go.

If travelling to the South West islands of Thailand during Sep-Nov be aware that many of the boat transfers do not run and the islands are pretty much deserted.

All the best

thx!
