One month trip to Asia. Need tips!I'm in my final year of studies, and I have decided use money I earned this summer to do some travelling in December :) This will be my first time travelling to Asia, and I will be going on my own. It would be great to get some comments on my schedule, and also, some advice for a fist timer! :)
I would like to spend the NYE in Singapore, and then I have no idea what to do :) I can leave from HK later than on the 2nd, even on the 7th or 10th. I just need some ideas :)

2In your shoes, I would just do Thailand and perhaps Singapore, although Singapore hotels are more expensive, as are Hong Kong's. Thailand is great value and you will find it easier to meet people (in my experience) since you will be travelling alone. You could easily do the entire month in Thailand alone and do a more comprehensive route which includes north as well as south, cities as well as rural areas plus beaches.
Don't forget that every time you go from place to place you will spend a lot of time in transit so you lose at least a half a day each time. Especially since it will be your first time you Asia it will be very foreign to you, the food, the currencies, language, and all that...every time you switch countries you will have to re-adjust.
