Into Bangkok - Laos - Vietnam - Cambodia - Malaysia and out of Singapore (2 months)

by Becky

Hi, I'm going traveling for 2 months and flying into Bangkok and out of Singapore... I was just wondering how much time roughly is recommended for each place and how much time I should allow myself to get from Bangkok to Singapore? I'll be going end of November to the end of January.

Thank you.

Answer: It depends on which places you're visiting.

I have some general guidelines: For cities I would recommend 3-4 days (particularly Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur -- lots of places to experience there), islands and beaches in Thailand and Malaysia from 4 days and up. If you're planning on spending some time in the mountains (whether it's in north Thailand or Vietnam), I would say 3-4 days to soak the culture.

" much time I should allow myself to get from Bangkok to Singapore?"

I'm not sure if I understand this question because you do say that you have 2 months of traveling...
