The water level is high in the north, and perfect for rafting. When you head south, go for the islands in the Gulf of Thailand (Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao). How about doing your dive course at the cheapest and most cosy resort at Koh Tao?

Now is the time to beat the crowds at Angkor Wat! At least chances are much better than in the high season, and you can still have very fine days with the sunshine and beautiful Angkor pictures. Take a bite of Siem Reap.
