I'm finishing my master's thesis in Bangkok at the moment, and am looking to dabble and indulge in a bit of everything following this period. I plan to finish by the first of October, head straight to the beach for 10days or so, at which point I will do the rough planning.
In the meantime, I was thinking of something along the lines of:
-Start in Chang Mai (or join me on the beach first!), tour around N. Thailand
-Cross overland into Laos and spend 10 days traveling progressively Southward.
-Cross overland into Cambodia and spend about a week exploring
-Cross overland into Southern Vietnam and spend about 10 days working progressively Northward with points of interest in HCMC, Nha Trang, Hoi An, and ending with a bit of trekking in Sapa.

I will likely fly Westward out of Kuala Lumpur, so may also be game for some travel through Malaysia, depending.

My travel style is mostly circumstantial at this point- so I'll be traveling on the cheap and after an extended period of tormented academia, I'll be looking to let loose and lay low at the same time. Also, natural environs always feature prominently in my itineraries, which is easy to do in SE Asia!
I'm 25, female, and American.

Send me a message or email if you'll be in the area and looking for some company on the road!

Nothing is really so important when you are on holiday but I recommend these places for you as first-timers:

1) Kuala Lumpur
- Twin Towers & the Aquaria
- National Zoo & the Museum of Indigenous People (Orang Asli Museum)
- Bukit Bintang for shopping and Arabic food, Starhill Gallery for fine dining.
- Sunway Lagoon theme park for your kids, Sunway Pyramid mall for shopping - there's an Arabic restaurant here called Tarbush which gives a beautiful view of the place in the evening
- Putrajaya. Charter a taxi for a half-day tour to see new architecture, the mosque, take a boat ride or water-ski
- Central market & Petaling Street for cheap souvenir shopping

2) Melaka
- Historical town. Hire a trishaw and aks him to take you through the old Portuguese remains, the Baby & Nyonya House and Kampung Sentosa
- On the way back, stop at Ayer Keroh for the Crocodile Farm and/or Mini Malaysia

3) Cameron Highlands
- Agricultural highland, tea plantation

4) Langkawi
- stay in a nice beach resort, those at Tanjung Rhu are the quietest
- cable car ride up to the mountains
- cultural tour of the island - Makam Mahsuri etc. You can have the hotel arrange it for you.

5) Penang
- stay in a nice beach resort at Batu Ferringhi
- Visit the Burmese temple, the Indian temple, the Kek Lok Si temple
- cable car ride up to the mountains

6) Pulau Redang / Pulau Tioman for snorkelling for nice beach

I have different plans. I would be in Italy for 10 days, then would head to Australia and NZ and if possible Amsterdam.
