Default Hops in Thailand

Hi all. I am looking for some guidance on which hops are the most resistant to heat in extreme and shed loads of rain.
It has been a dream of mine for a while to plant and grow hops here in northern Thailand, so I would love any hints and tips.
Cheers,Lee

That's a pretty tall order for any hop variety, although Cascade seems to do well in most areas.

Or you could do like the Chinese and brew your beer with bitter melon! I'm sure that grows pretty well where you are.
