BKK- to where for short trip August during rainy season?

Jump to last reply

In my earlier post I explained that I will have a business trip to Chonburi, Thailand after which I can take about 5 days of vacation in early August.

Everyone has been helpful suggesting places to visit around the area, but little has caught my interest . The suggestion for a destination that may be drier was Koh Samet . I will look into it.

Maybe I should think differently. Instead of trying to stay around Chonburi or even Thailand (this is my third visit) during the wet season when visiting the national parks and other destinations I would like is not practical, maybe I should be asking, "Where can I get to with a relatively short flight from BKK that would be an interesting destination for 3-4 days during August and would be drier?" I could fly roundtrip via BKK (I need to spend a day in Bangkok anyway to visit friends) before returning home.

I haven't been to SIngapore, but looked into once. Would it likely have better weather? I think it is a short visit type of place. Kuala Lumpur that time of year? I'm not as familiar with what to see/do there. Other ideas?
