week-long getaway from Singapore?
21st December, 2011
Perhaps not the right forum, but I'll be in Singapore for work in October and I'd like to take a week afterwards for me. But that said, I have no idea where to go... Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Beijing, etc. Ok, not Beijing. Haven't seen the great wall yet, but not this trip.
I'll be traveling solo, mid-30s guy. I'd like some good beach time, the chance to do a couple of scuba dives, some good food and decent nightlife. Sites and hikes ok, but not necessary. Budget is above backpacker, but not 5*. Above backpacker since I'll have a lot of work stuff with me so I'll need to either leave stuff in Singapore or go somewhere with not that much thievery (or a great safe).
So basically, what's nice and convenient and some good options for this kind of week that's adventurous but still easy to get to and manage? Aside from Bali I really don't know enough about the region. I'm thinking two places in a country might be good (like Manila plus island), but don't mind spending the whole week in one place.

Bumping up to see if any replies. My trip is now 5-6 days. I'm thinking of Bali or Thailand based on flights. Would love some itinerary tips.

Check this website: www.tripinasia.net to find your destination. You can filter the destinations by month (to avoid the mansoon), minimum duration (if you only have 2 or 3 days or more), theme (culture, beach, city, etc). In your case (sorry I believe it's too late) you can filter the destinations by October + beach. You will see that Pulau Sibu, Tioman or even Myanmar can be good options. Of course, Bali is always an option.
Hope you enjoyed your trip
