Need help planning long honeymoon - Aus,NZ and Thailand-3mos

Jump to last reply

Hey all, we'd love to get some of you recommendations for a honeymoon trip we're planning - it's kind of a short notice so we need to start booking very soon so any help would be really greatly appreciated!

We're a couple in our early thirties and are getting married soon and have decided to both take some time off from work and do one last adventure as a couple before we have kids and settle down (which is it's own adventure of course, but of a different kind)

We'd like to leave New York (where we live) as early as november 22nd (but of course can leave later as well) and be back by March 24th.

We've never been to this side of the world and are very excited to see it - we'd like to spend some time in Australia and do the standard route there, and do Thailand as well, we'd like to also do NZ but it's a lower priority and if 3 months is not enough (which we assume it is) we will be ok with doing our trip without NZ (grudgingly)

We know we can't ask you to plan our trip for us, but we'd love to get recommendations on a basic skeleton of the trip so that we can start booking our flights and any accommodations we would need to get started, we'd also like to know if the dates are totally wrong for a trip of this nature (weatherwise or otherwise) so that we can pivot and do a different type of trip

We'd like to do sightseeing, minor treks (no more than 2-3 days), activities, whitewater rafting, etc. what would you recommend for us?

Thanks a lot in advance,
Sivan and Elad
