Looking for country suggestions for 2 week itinerary for next year's trip

Jump to last reply

Having just returned from Spain, we're now talking about our 2016 trip and a return to Asia. I've been planning to go to Indonesia for a while (Java/Bali + 2-3 days in Singapore or Hong Kong) but it looks like I may only have a total of 2 weeks next year (thanks to possible job change). Not definite yet, but the 3-week trip may be a thing of the past.

I'm looking for recommendations that would make a good 2-week itinerary that is more easily accessed from NYC (that is, India has direct flights; Indonesia has multiple stopovers) which would mean that less time is lost in transit. I would most likely be traveling either April or later May, so many places in Asia could be eliminated. I'd really love to go to Indonesia, but I'm afraid that we'd lose so much time in transit and adjustment time, that it may not be worth it.

We've now been to India (Rajasthan) and SE Asia (Thailand, Cambodia, Laos). On the very long list of places that interest us are the following top contenders, although the list is not exclusive and some places call out more than others:
Indonesia (Java/Bali, and more, if time allows)
Southern India
Sri Lanka
Vietnam
Borneo

What do you recommend for a great 2-week trip in Asia during the spring (April or late May)? Feel free to add to the list, I'm open to suggestions.
Could we make Indonesia work?

Early thoughts, but suggestions and opinions most welcome!
