Resolved Question: Suggested travel route
I arrive in Kuala Lumpur on February 6th and return to KL on March 2nd.. Do you have any suggested travel routes for a three week trip to get in as much as possible? I have already been to Thailand and Singapore and stayed in KL for quite a long period of time.. so would not be fussed about going there again. I have money to book fights too.. so really what I'm after is a suggested route and places to visit..or if you can get boats/coaches etc.. places I am interested in visiting include India, Hong Kong, Bali, Phillipines.. really anywhere different? Is it worth doing Cambodia, Vietnam and Loas? As i know this is a very popular travel route! Any help would be great!!! Thanks!!
I am not looking for touristy places and when I was in Phuket I absolutely despised it.. not my kind of place at all.. when I stayed in KL I stayed in ChinaTown and loved it.. don't mind slumming it al, just want to explore and see some beautiful places! Thanks x Thankyou so much for the answers so far - Laos does sound amazing but I really want to do as many countries as possible in a short space of time.. budget isn't so much of an issue... i have money for flights etc.. I was thinking for example if I could fly to Hong Kong and then get a boat to the next place etc.. or Fly to New Dheli then get a bus or something? Really looking for someone who has done this before?

I am going to Thailand in November and am flying into bangkok. I will then travel up north, into Laos, over to Vietnam, down to Cambodia and then back to Bangkok. I will then travel down the islands to Malaysia.
I was wondering what are the hot spot places to visit on the way and is this a good route?
