What is the best time of year to travel in Southeast Asia?

So, I decided to forgo Burning Man this year in favor of an epic, 3-week journey through Southeast Asia. I'm figuring that I'll want to hit up Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand. I'd think this would be doable through some combination of planes/trains/buses.
The question is, when? I've been told that I should plan around the weather AND tourist traffic. For example, I've heard that December is the worst time to visit, since tourists flood the place, making everything more expensive and less pleasant.
Although I was originally thinking of December, I could also go for January or February. I suppose I could wait longer if necessary ... but I don't really want to ;)
