I am landing in Bangkok on October 31st 2013, after a few nights my travelling will begin, i have some checkpoints which i need to be at, these are:
November 17th - Koh Phangan (Full moon party)
December 22nd - Singapore (Flight to Perth)
So does this plan seem ok?
November 4th - Siem Reap (Cambodia) - 2/3 nights
Phnom Penh (Cambodia) - 2/3 nights
Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) - 3/4 nights
Koh Phangan (South Thailand) - Week including the full moon party :D
Koh Samui (South Thailand) - Week or so
Krabi (South Thailand) - 3/5 nights
Phi Phi (South Thailand) -3/5 nights
Phuket (South Thailand) - Week or so
Georgetown (Malaysia) - 3/5 nights
Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) - 3/5 nights
Singapore - 3/5 nights
Also are there anyone planning a similar route that would like to meet up? x
If you are flying e.g. Koh Samui to Phuket etc then its definately doable....though not sure why you want to spend 1 wk on Koh Samui, 1 wk phuket then 5 days Krabi+Phi Phi....it all seems like excess beach time as you are on a tight schedule and you might be better exploring Vietnam more e.g. going to Ha Long Bay, Hanoi, Don Det (4000 islands) etc. I would leave out Koh Samui as i was there last month and you get the same stuff on the West side and in fact better beaches/islands imo e.g. from Krabi you can go to Koh Lanta, Ton Sai, Railey etc.
Phnon Penh to HCMC has good bus connections taking about 6hrs and being v cheap e.g. Mekong Express Lmousine Bus $12, The bus leaves from O'Russey market in Phnom Penh. Remember you need a visa before arriving to Vietnam, bus companies will not let you board the bus unless you have one

thanks for your help, i was thinking about Ha Long Bay and Hanoi but i think i'll just spend more time around Malaysia instead of going back up North.
Is there much to do/see in Ho Chi Minh? thanks again!
5 nights may be a little too much for Singapore! Unless you factor in a day for hangovers after a night of drinking... etc :P You should probably be done seeing most of the stuff within 3 or 4 days actually
