Hiya,
This is my first threat start on a.net, and have searched for previous topics on it but did not find any (current) ones, so apologies if there has been a recent one.

I am planning to travel around Asia when I finish school and have set aside a day for each airport I intend to visit.. 
Any tips or places to go, rules and best times of day would be much appreciated!!
I am intending on going to...
MNL , NRT and KIX , ICN , BKK , SIN and KUL .

I hope that JS is still traveling to BKK and KUL when I go!  

Thanks in advance for all tips!!

I was in SIN in January and before i went i started this thread,

Spotting At SIN/WSSS (by SIA6696 Dec 15 2010 in Aviation Photography)

At that time winds were constantly northerlies, so I mainly used Changi Business Park. Here are some shots taken from Changi Business Park.

I also went to the T1 viewing mall, but you have to shoot through glass and the variety is limited.

Check out spotters wiki for more info.

SIN isn't the best place for spotting as the shots can be quite boring, but some of the stuff there is very good.

If your going to Osaka i'd give Kix a miss and head directly to Itami one of the best photography locations for aviation in the world bar none. Amazing spot..
Dont forget HND in Tokyo its awesome as well with great backdrops etc.
Enjoy..

If you plan a trip to Japan, I would advise the best season for optimal weather is fall and/or winter. I have seen nothing but sunny and clear skies from December all the way to Feb here in the Tokyo area. Summertime is hit and miss with typhoon season and bad heat haze. No matter what commercial airfields you visit in Japan, practically every, major-wise, all have great observation viewing on spot. Spring is okay, but with lots of clouds and winds.

100% agree.

Both airports are also open for night shots.
Itami has, besides the excellent spots inside the airport, a beautiful viewing park. I rented a bike to get there.

KIX - Lighting is poor for most of the day because the Observation Deck faces south and west.
ITM - Lighting is good in the morning but poor for rest of the day as the Terminal is on the east side.
HND/NRT - move around the terminals to maximize lighting and airline variety.
KUL - Viewing deck inside the land-side part of the main terminal. Many movements can be missed because of the distance to the remote/LCC terminals and runways. The plus is relief from the humidity and heat that is present year-round.
