6 days beginning of Sept, where to go!

Jump to last reply

I scheduled to take 6 days off in between jobs at the beginning of Sept but now I do not know where to go. Is 6 days enough to travel from Los Angeles to some far away place? I have a budget of around $1000 including flights/hotel so I am looking for a package deal. I prefer to travel internationally or go across an ocean. I won't get a vacation for a whole year at my new job and I can always do short domestic weekend getaways during that time.

Countries I would like to visit (the list is constantly changing):
Indonesia
Taiwan
China/Tibet
Turkey
Israel
South Africa
New Zealand
Scandanavian countries

Other locatinos I would consider plopping down for 6 days include:
Cancun
Caribbean - Jamaica, Bahamas, DR, Turks & Caicos, etc.
North/South Pacific island (other than Hawaii)
Belize/Panama
Brazil - Iguazu Falls
Cuba

Does anyone think it would be worth the flight and cost to travel to any of the above mentioned places. Even though I prefer to stay in a resort, possibly even an all inclusive, I would still like to experience the culture, thinking Bora Bora over Cancun, Brazil over Belize. This is my first time travelling alone without my gf, if she was coming with me I would choose cities like Moscow/St. Petersberg, Budapest, Safari in South Africa, Colombia. Places that have a lot of museums, shopping, restaurants for both of us to enjoy each others company.

Need to book soon, my fallback is to go surfing everyday here in LA and go fishing, but I can do that any day.

Also, since it is my first solo trip, any ideas on what to expect. I am thinking lots of lonely days/nights, but then there is the independence to make decisions on my own, eat and see whatever/whenever I want.
