Revamp of 9 weeks SE Asia

Jump to last reply

Just extended our trip to SEA to 9 weeks Oct.19 to Dec. 27, flying into Singapore and out of Bangkok.

Our only givens are meeting family in Chiang Mai Nov. 15-21.

We are thinking of spending the first 2 weeks+ in Malaysia: 7 nights in Singapore, a day to train travel to Penang For 7 nights (hoping to explore some of the island).

Most likely flying to Thailand, maybe Phuket or Krabi before reaching Chiang Mai.

The rest of the trip will be Laos and Siem Reap with a few final days in Bangkok.

This is our retirement trip and we want to see as much as we can in the time we have but don't like to rush from place to place. We are also not sure we will get back to SEA (bucket list choices!). We find we do better staying in one area for at least a week. Is a week in Penang and a week in Singapore too much?

Thanks formany insight.
