Me and my husband are planning a 2 week trip to South East Asia next April (all the time we could get off work) and I would be grateful if anyone could give some advice on where to go!
I have spent some time in Asia as a student (10 weeks in total) and have travelled to Singapore, Malaysia, Bangkok, Koh Sumet, Koh Samui, Koh phangan, Bali but my husband has never been to South east asia before!!!
I have raved about how much I loved it, the food, the culture, the vibe and want him the have that same magical feeling that I have experienced. I know that in 2 weeks he wont have all the experiences I have had in 10 weeks so picking the right places is crucial!! Experiences that stick out to me are Singapore (one of my favourite cities in the world), jungle trekking in Thailand, white water rafting and cheap spa treatments in Bali and sitting on the beautiful beach of phi phi.
We definitely want to go Singapore there is much more there I havnt seen and Bangkok although there isnt much I havnt done there he wants to get some tailoring done as his brother got his wedding suit made there. I would like to go somewhere I havnt been before like Vietnam and Cambodia and finish with one of the thai Islands.
At first I was thinking 2 days in Singapore, 2 days to see Angkor wat in Cambodia, 2 days in Bangkok and 5 days at one of the Islands (few days for travel). Unfortunately you cant fly direct from Singapore to Siem Reap-would Chang Mai be a good alternative to Cambodia or is Cambodia a real must see if I havnt been?
On way to Phi Phi we stopped in Phuket which didnt like as too touristy, Is Samui very touristy as well, if we went there would I wished we went to Phi Phi?
