Other SE Asian countries worth seeing if already visited Thailand?

Jump to last reply

Hello. I'm considering visit a SE Asian country or two since I have about 2 weeks of time. Afterwards, I will go to Chongqing in China to visit my friend. I have already visited the NE Asian countries and Thailand

I am thus considering visiting the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore. Or I may just instead visit a city or two in China before going to Chongqing, such as Kunming and/or Guilin (I've already seen Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Suzhou, Hangzhou, HK)

In Thailand, I already visited Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Koh Tao, and Koh Samui. I went snorkeling and trekking and elephant-riding.

I wouldn't say I'm all that interested in the history of these countries. The beaches seem nice, but I already went snorkeling in Thailand, so I'm not sure if it would be a better use of my time to see something other than beaches

What do you guys think? Which of these countries have interesting things for tourists other than beaches and historical sites? Are the beaches/islands at the Philippines and Indonesia different enough from Thailand that I should see them instead of Kunming/Guilin?
