I live in Singapore & have been to various parts of Thailand & Indonesia
many times. Let me know what you have in mind & I can try to point you
in the right direction. S.E. Asia is a big place. Maybe you can start by
doing a checklist of the so-called must-sees. Since you have a month,
you'll still have some leeway to do a bit of meandering.

Without knowing too much about who you are or what you are interested
in seeing and doing, this is a tough call. If you like backpacking,
guesthouses and figuring things out with a little trial and error,
Cambodia and Laos are good places for you. If you are going all the
way there, I really think you don't want to miss Angkor Wat in
Cambodia, it is truly amazing. I also spent time in Laos and loved
it. Luang Prabang was laid back, relaxing, great food, very
accessible, and friendly people. If you want the package tours,
air-conditioned buses and guides, Thailand will not disappoint. I
have not been to Malaysia, but have always heard such great things
about it so it's worth looking into.

I'm spending a month this summer in SE Asia & am trying to figure out
where I want to spend my time. I'm definitely going to Singapore,
Thailand, & Indonesia. Has anyone visited & have recommendations on
places to visit?

I spent a month in Thailand and Laos by myself. I really wish I had
spent more time in Laos. It is a magical place and I felt very safe
there. I liked thailand, but was not impressed with the mass
commercialism in the big cities. Take the funky trains out to smaller
towns and just walk around or rent a bike and be amazed at the simple
beauties that abound.
