Honeymoon in late September to October: Thailand or Bali/Lombok?

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are planning on a 2 -2.5 week honeymoon the last week of September into October. After hearing so many great things about Thailand from friends, we were thinking about going to Koh Samui, Bangkok, and Chiang Mai. If we do go to Thailand do those 3 places make sense (and in that order) given that time of year and the rainy season? Any day trips we should take that are close by, or must see spots other than those?

We are also considering exploring Bali and the neighboring islands (possibly just Lombok).

We would like a few days of rest and relaxation but also want to get out and explore the area and experience the culture (historical sites, shopping, kayaking, hiking, rafting, seeing animals etc.). We would like to spend a few days in a luxury resort, but not our entire trip. We also enjoy water sports (we live in Hawaii and surf), and I am a certified diver.

*Given those 2 countries, which do you think would be better for the time of year and what we are looking for?

*If you have suggestions about Indonesia, and what we "must see/must do" that would be helpful as well.

Thanks in advance for any tips!
