If you are UK citizens, a visa from Singapore to Malaysia isn't a problem, they just stamp a 90 day visa in your passport on arrival. There are so many embassies in Kuala Lumpur so you would be able to get your Thai visa there, we got one for Vietnam in KL and it took 5days.

Unfortunately I have no idea about getting into Indonesia, but I've heard that Bangkok is a really good place to get visas for SE Asia, not been there yet so don't guarantee it.

Try looking on the UK Foreign Office website (can't rememeber the address but type it into Google and it will come up). I seem to remember that they gave details of what you need to do to get into each country.

Hope that helps?:)

For Thailand, the visa will depend on your citizenship (your passport). Check this forum and the link I posted in there for further information:

For Thailand you get given a 30 day visa at the border/customs, but if you're planning on staying for longer you can apply for a 60 day visa from the Thai Embassy at Hull for 25 pounds. When I went to Malaysia I also got a visa at the border, although I was only there for one day, so I can't remember how long it was valid for.

Never been to Cambodia but I've heard that there are a few scams at the border involving visas. People pester tourists (so I've heard) on the walk up to customs and try to get them to get their visa through them (charging a bit more than the standard price). But I don't think actually getting the visa is a problem, just that you can end up paying a little bit more than you need to.
