Best Location for Dry Weather in Aug/Sept/Oct

Hi all,

I'm really wanting to head to SE Asia this year, specifically late summer/early fall-- August, September, October. I'm open to just about any country in SE Asia, as I want to see them all!! I was planning on Vietnam, but after speaking with a coworker who is from Vietnam, he said I would for sure see lots of rain during my time frame, and to plan on going next Jan/Feb.

Heat does not bother me, nor does humidity, but rain is a no-go (I realize you can't predict the weather, but I don't want to go during Monsoon season).

Countries I'm really interested in, but please offer any you think I should add to my list!
(I realize the last two are not in SE Asia, but are in Asia, and are high on my list!)

*Thailand is not on this list as I am planning a solo trip. Thailand is pretty much the only country in SE Asia he wants to see (he loves S America), so I'm holding off on Thailand until he can get more time off of work.

Thanks so much for your suggestions!

Aug/Sept/Oct is a fine time to visit Indonesia - not just Bali, but Java and perhaps other islands as well.

It will me much wetter in mainland SE Asia (Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar, Malaysia).

I have a trip report on Java - just click on my name. Photos are at www.marlandc.com
