The first lot of countries, being closer to the equator, originally had larger percentage of land covered by rainforests, however much has been cleared.

Most of Indochinan countries also contain rainforests, even though they are not quite as dense and there are quite large areas in some countries (Laos, Cambodia, parts of Myanmar and China) that are not covered by rainforests.
