Quiet but adventurous winter honeymoon in SEA

Jump to last reply

We're trying to decide where to go in SE Asia on our three-week honeymoon. We'll be leaving from Alaska around the 14th of December, and back on the 4th or 5th of January.

It'll be my first time to the region, but not his. Original plan was to go to Thailand, but we've been lately tempted by Indonesia. However, after a very rainy summer in AK I've been a little scared off by the rainy season there. We also want to avoid loads of tourists- considering we'll be there over Christmas, I assume this means Bali is out? I do realize it's the high season all over, but hope that we can find some quiet place for the majority of the time. Beginning or ending the trip with a couple days exploring a city sounds great, too.

We're go-with-the flow folks, not averse to playing the entire trip by ear. But we're looking for a hike/trek once and awhile, a good plunk on the beach (maybe snorkeling or kayaking) and good food. Budget generally low-to-midrange, with a splurge here or there.

Itineraries I've considered:

Fly into Bangkok, head north to Chiang Mai and environs to explore N. Thailand for a week, then head south for 2 weeks to get time on beaches (perhaps the Andaman Islands?)

Fly into Kuala Lumpur, train/bus north to explore the west coasts/islands of Malaysia and Thailand. End in BKK.

Fly into Jakarta and travel overland: 2 weeks on Java, 1 week exploring Lombok/Gilis or Flores. Fly back to Jakarta Worried a bit about weather.

Ears have perked at thoughts of Vietnam as well.

Am a bit overwhelmed at the options, frankly. Am I casting too broad a net?
