I have never really planned a vacation and usually wing it. I generally have kept all my vacations relatively simple - usually one main place and 2 or 3 side trips.
For my honeymoon, we have around 3 to 4 weeks and would like to spend it in Asia with more well planned travel. We have been to Asia many times including Hong Kong, various cities in China (not the Shanghai or Beijing), Bangkok, Taipei, Seoul, Tokyo, etc. For our honeymoon, I am thinking Bali for a few days and Singapore - we would also like to go to Vietnam and Thailand. I wouldn't mind stopping by Hong Kong too.
Can anyone propose an itinerary that works or make sense?

With 3-4 weeks, given the countries you mention I'd start with something like:
Bali 4 nights
Singapore 3 nights
Hanoi/Ha Long Bay 7 nights
Bangkok 2 nights
Somewhere in northern Thailand 3 nights
An island in southern 4 nights.
It's a pretty general plan - a lot would depend on time of year and your interests.
Fitting in Vietnam seems a bit of a stretch in this itinerary. I’d say a natural progression would drop Vietnam and add Malaysia to the mix. I’ve been very impressed with Malaysia as a place and a stop off in KL/Malacca and maybe a few days on Langkawi could be a good addition on your way from Singapore to BKK. Then from BKK up to the North of Thailand for a little bit to get away from beach life (Chiang Mai . . . of course, way for the water to recede). If you don’t want to travel to strictly, have your date set for a BKK departure and then a buffer of a few days at nights at the end for a southern island – but with the option to squeeze those out during your trip if you find a place you’d like to spend some extra time in.
Its great that you are visiting so many places, why not you give a 5 days for each place you will get to enjoy each place properly.Rest also depends on your interest and mood.
