UNDATED (AP) -- President Barack Obama is due to arrive Sunday in Bangkok where he'll tour a monastery and then meet with the king and the prime minister of Thailand.

On Monday, Obama will travel to Myanmar where he'll meet with that country's president as well as activist Aung San Suu Kyi (ahng sahn soo chee) and deliver a speech encouraging Myanmar's ongoing democratic transition.

Afterward, Obama heads to Cambodia to attend the East Asia Summit. Obama is hoping to show that America is firmly committed to the region and will serve as a counter balance to growing Chinese power and influence.
