So many choices, making me confused- help!

Jump to last reply

I decided to start a new post :-)

My husband and I are active travelers (he is going to turn 50 next year, me 40). We've decided to go to Asia for the first time. Hubby wants to go to Malaysia so we got round trip tickets landing into Kuala Lumpur on July 28 in the afternoon. We leave KL on August 14. So, that's 16 full days (not counting arrival and departure).

Background on us: We get bored staying in one spot for too long. We do however like some down time built into our trip (usually in the beginning and end). We love hiking, nature, walking, beach (but we're not swimmers, more walkers/gazers and if there's one of those submarine things that goes underwater then we will go on it), culture, history and we like to eat (though don't usually spend too much time at fancy restaurants).

I've done some preliminary research that's just made me more confused.

Peninsula Malaysia (KL, Melacca, Georgetown/Penang, Langkawi- all sound appealing)
Singapore (sis has been and is persuading me to go saying there's a nice night safari)
Borneo (seems out of the way and possibly more rugged but nature calls)
Bali (wowzers the pictures look amazing and it looks like a combo of culture with nature which is really appealing).

Thoughts? Itinerary suggestions? Is this doable? How many days to allow for each? What to cut out for another time?

Thanks so much in advance!
