Best times and places to visit during a 3 week trip to Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia (and maybe Singapore 1-2 day), please!? How to split
I am planning a 3 week trip to the FarEast for the first time in my life and I have decided to visit Bangkok, Manila and Jakarta and maybe Singapore, too, if it would be worth it. When would be the best dates for such a trip (climate, festivals, etc.) and how many nights should I allocate to each of the three destinations in that trip (thinking that 1 night for Singapore would be enough, if I choose to go there, too). and should I visit any other place as well, maybe cutting short of the others (Phuket, etc.), to round up the 21 day trip? Any other advice (safety, events, clubs, etc.) would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Here is the Phuket's festival calendar. Hope you have a great trip :)

Wow a lot to see! 1 or 2 days in Singapore ok but too rushed. Flying from Manila best to Bangkok, if only in BGK 3 or 4 days is nice. Takes 1 day to get to Jak and if not timed correctly you will find yourself in serious traffic. Arrive late or mid morning! Indonesia is very nice but better to stay out of Jak unless you like golf or night life. Spend more time in Thailand easier to get around. over 6 years ago
