First short trip in SE Asia

Jump to last reply

Hello All -- I'm migrating over to this board from the Europe forum because we just migrated from England to Singapore! A month into our adventure and we're very happy here.

We're in the process of planning our first short trip, to take place at the end of October. Honestly, I'm a bit overwhelmed. It's very new and exciting but I just don't know where to start! I find myself spinning in circles, reading this forum and tripadvisor, jumping from one destination to another, never really finding the right place. I'm sort of leaning towards Sumatra as it is a Unesco World Heritage Site on the In Danger List, but I don't know if that's enough.

I know I need to adjust my expectations. We have a few years here and while this is our first trip, it won't be the last and it certainly doesn't have to be perfect. I'll work on my attitude if you guys can just help me narrow down the destination!

Details
Two adults, mid 30's, one 9 year old boy currently obsessed with minecraft and FIFA15 but can be coaxed into the real world with some effort. Husband and son are very picky eaters but I'll try anything.

Flights under 4 hours are preferable. Love the beach more than the towns but would like a chance to see both. Exotic animals would be amazing (have looked at Elephant riding/washing and orangutan spotting). Access to western dining is a plus although my son can live on white rice for a few days!

Just a short trip, 4 days 3 nights or so.

Can you help? I promise to be a quality contributor to this forum and post sparkling and witty trip reports from all of our adventures!
