My fiance and I both love traveling. We're trying to keep the cost to $5k including flights – is this even possible? Here is what we're looking for:
- 2 weeks in September
- Foreign Island Getaway (SE Asia/ Oceania preferably – we've already traveled a lot in Europe, South/ Central America, Thailand, Singapore and Vietnam)
- Good Scuba (we're both certified), specifically high vis, abundant fish and macro life (whale sharks, sharks, dolphins, turtles, etc.) – looking to dive probably 2 days
- Other activities (fishing, snorkel, trekking, viewpoints, island hopping, horseback riding, visiting local tribes, cultural events, cooking courses)
- Would love the luxury experience you think of when you think of a honeymoon (private villa, airport pickup, couples massage, dive shop at resort, cocktail/ champagne upon arrival, flowers on the bed, etc.)
We had a lot of these experiences when we went to Thailand together, but we stayed at hostels, so I'm hoping there's a way to up the romance without breaking the bank. We both have Costco and AAA memberships (also have travel credit cards), so hopefully that'll help us out with some discounts.
Ps. We'd be flying out of LAX
Thanks for any advice!
