What's the best way to spend 3 weeks in Southeast Asia in June?

Jump to last reply

I'm a female solo traveller planning a 3-week trip Southeast Asia during the first three weeks of June.

My original plan was to spend 8 days in Bali, fly to Singapore for three to four days, take the train to Kuala Lumpur and pick another destination in Malaysia to take a little side trip to, giving me about 8-9 days in KL and Malaysia. It seemed like a good idea to sway away from Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam because of the notorious monsoon season there at the time.

Any thoughts regarding this kind of itinerary, or suggestions for specific destinations? Should I consider replacing any of the points on the route with any other cities? I am interested in the culture/history as well as local arts and traditions, but hope to spend a few days on the beach relaxing, and meet as many people as possible. Quality over quantity, insider insights over getting smashed on the beach, that kind of thing.

I've gathered that the weather should be as hot as usual, but drier as the rainy season will have ended by then in that region. Or is it going to be so scorching hot that I should re-evaluate?

Any suggestions for any specific places to stay, or any local tours to embark on? In Bali, I've been pointed towards Ubud and the Gilis (maybe Lombok). Should I check out Langkawi in Malaysia?

Thank you very much!
