SE Asia in December/January

Jump to last reply

Hi, my wife and I are planning a trip to SE Asia for a duration of about 5-6 weeks from the first days of December to the middle of January. Please don't write: it's better to go in indifferent months, because we can't change the dates.

So made a ton of research and by now we are do tired of it that we can't decide.

What we are interested in:

- wildlife
- diving (I want to do a PADI Open Water Diver)
- volcanos
- good food
- the whole trip should be quite cheap because it's a long time and we can't bleed tourist money for 5-6 weeks
- hiking
- seeing a whale would be a plus

What we were wondering about:

Indonesia - seems to tick all our boxes, but it's a raining season :(

Philippines - diving + volcanos + wildlife seem great, but we read that food there is terrible?

Sri Lanka - wildlife! diving! food! whales! but seems to be more expensive and more touristy? my wife worries that it will be families with children and tourists groups everywhere, is it the case?

Myanmar (Burma) - but it seems diving there is not good, food is greasy and the biggest draw are temples, that we are not so interested in; but we are still interested because people just recommend it so much - why?

Vietnam - my wife loves the colors of the country, I'm worried that december seems to be not a good month to dive there?

China - the south seems very interesting but we are a little worried that it will be cold

Thailand - it's great but we have been there but maybe we can combine it with Birma or Philipines or Sri Lanka or something like this and spend 2 weeks here and 3 weeks in another country

PLEASE HELP! :D I know this post seems like we are a bunch of picky kids, but we are not we promise! We just want to have the best vacation ever and after two weeks of research we are just a bit confused.
