This is my first time posting here, so excuse me if i get anything wrong. Myself and my husband are planning to spend a year in South East Asia leaving at the end of November. Currently we are planning to spend December & Christmas in Goa, and then fly to Bangkok for the New Year. We then have till the middle of November 13 to work our way around SE Asia. I am having problems planning any sort of intinery. We love the rural, less commercialised side of things and are both complete beach bunnies, loving wildlife and all the natural world has to offer. So as much as possible having hot/ warm weather is really important. We are happy to experience the wet season also but are keen to avoid any coldness as much as possible. I have found various websites that give you information about "best time to travel" but they all seem to contradict themselves.
We are well aware that plans will change and i am by no means suggesting that i will be planning out every move for a year. But on the other hand we are having family and friends fly out to visit us at various times and it would be really good to have an idea where we will be when.
So does anyone have any ideas? Has anyone spent a year in SE Asia and if so would you share your intinery with me? Any suggestions would be hugely appreciated.
