Hey!

We have just had our circumstances change, and what was going to be a week in Tasmania, can now be 10 days anywhere! But there are so many options, neither of us have been overseas before, and aren't likely to get to go again any time soon. I want something with a bit of culture shock, FH is a lot more reserved... So we need somewhere with a happy medium! Neither of us want something too touristy, or resorty...
We're wanting to spend about $5000 all up, which isn't a huge budget, so I figure we're probably looking at somewhere in Asia.
Where else would be good, that fits our budget? I think I would really like to go OS.

At long last, our baby boy is here!

Actually, we're really keen on the South Pacific... doable on $5k?

Easily do-able with $5K. You'd have a luxury honeymoon for that! Obviously I'm excluding celebrity venues that cosy thousands of $$ per night, but you'd have many options with 5K. Vanuatu? Fiji? Or, a destination on my personal wishlist, Tahiti...FH and I have travelled heaps (41 countries and counting with our honeymoon being spent in Jordan and Syria!), but I've always wanted to go to Tahiti. Not in the South Pacific, but what about the Maldives? Only thing is, places like the Maldives would probably be alittle more $$$...

This site http://www.pacific-travel-guides.com/ should give you some ideas..

Good luck!

Hi Tash

How exciting for you! What about Vanuatu, or Fiji or Hawaii?

I think they would all be do-able for less than 5K. Vanuatu is made up of 80 or so different islands. I always look at those amazing huts that are built above the water and think I would just die if I could stay there.... not quite sure where there is though biggrin.gif !!

I've only been to Hawaii so I'm not much help but the island of Maui was the best of the main 4 Hawaiian islands smile.gif

ETA: KittyKatz beat me to it smile.gif

Allie I am so excited, I feel like doing a girly squeal, but I think I might wake the neighbours... I keep finding all these awesome places and showing FH who is practically drooling!!

I think we've decided on Fiji biggrin.gif (relatively easy decision in the end!)

Treehouse bures, overwater bures, rainforests, secluded beaches... I'm never one to wish time away... but BRING ON APRIL!!!

We are going to Vanuatu and staying at irririki island resort. We thought about staying in the bure's (overwater bungalows) but decided to go for the hotel part as it had a spa on the balcony, and I have heard they are not very sound proof ph34r.gif .
