    Bathurst island could be a option betty,you can enjoy getting smashed every day on the wine,gunga,karva and the Roo tail stew is to die for.a full body massage will only set you
    back a 6 pack of Vb cans and a couple of smokes.
    The only downside is there's No Goats.

    Pretty simple actually - you answered your own question.

    Nope. That'll be August, although rainy season has officially started, but where does he mention he doesnt like Typhoons?

    Bali, as Cyrille mentioned is nice in June

    It is boring, and no flying, but I've never been and could be a relaxing 5 days just a 90 minute very exciting train ride away...

    The beaches can be a bit crowded.

    Liked that film.

    Bets i thought HK was out as you said your Mrs wanted to go also so you couldn't go alone. Taiwan look favourite, with 5 days only why give yourself loads of travelling headaches.

    I'm gonna have to decide this week and book something.

    Hong Kong is off the list now, but Bali is on the list.

    Even though I'd ideally like to go to a country I haven't been before, I am thinking about the Philippines because i really enjoyed it last time and it was good value. I want beech relaxing, bars, reading books and making some research notes. I'll look through the old Philippines thread I did for some suggestions other than PG that I went before (although PG is really nice, as is Manilla, and I wouldn't mind going back there.



    Just looking at my old thread, I'd be very happy to go back there again:http://teakdoor.com/philippine-forum...to-galera.html (Photothread: Manila & Puerto Galera...)

    Although, lots of good suggestions from other folks too:http://teakdoor.com/philippine-forum...ines-trip.html (Where to go for a short Philippines trip?)

    I'm now thinking about a flight to Guam, stay 3 or 4 days then a flight to Saipan and stay 3 or 4 days; haven't been to either, never likely to when I move out of Korea; although either may be a tad boring for too long a stay, it may be interesting to do both.

    Any thoughts? Anybody been to either place. Maybe the flights would cost around $500 in total, accom similar, so maybe around $1500 for a week - quite pricey for a little break, but ok.

    Return flights to Saipan or Guam are about $250 dollars once I've paid extra for good seats. Make it a 3 flight trip and each leg price goes up and total cost is close to $500... meh. Both places look pretty boring. I might do a 4 day trip to Saipan just to see what it's like.

    But, with direct flights, emergency seats, to Cebu at $220 return, that's looking favourite.

    Blimey, good point, and I was on the second from last JejuAir screen - no wonder the flights were so reasonable... I wanna leave on the 26th June and stay somewhere for a week. Where's gonna be nice?

    A quick look at the Dilly charts shows that the weather is shite everywhere - it's world thunderstorm season!

    Fuk it, I'm gonna book 5 days in Saipan, do some reading and a bit of work; if it's sooooo boring I can't stand it then I'll fly to Guam.

    Edit: Saipan just looks so shite and boring...


    I need to rethink this - maybe going further afield, maybe even Thailand... Going out to watch a play now, bit of culture, so I'll get back on this mission tomorrow.

    As Cyrille mentioned, it's the best time of year to visit Bali.

    Loads to see and do there.

    April to October is the best time to visit Bali, when there is little rain, low humidity, and lots of sun. Bali is a good year-round destination. There is a wet season but it can still be a fine time to visit Bali. If you want to save money the best months are May, June, and October
