Question by Neo: I cant decide between Tahiti and Bali for my honeymoon. I only have a week and a fixed budget.Any suggestions?
I live in New York but I will be flying to Asia first and then going for my honeymoon before flying back home. I feel Tahiti will be more expensive and will take longer by flight. However, it appears to be more beautiful than Bali (from the pictures). I couldnt find any travel websites which do a comparitive study.

    Bali is much, much cheaper. And if you’re already in Asia, it’s closer.
    I was trying to make the decision between the 2 places and decided my budget just wasn’t enough for Tahiti.
    Had a blast in Bali and didn’t have to worry about pinching pennies the while time.
    Good luck!!

    I have been to both Tahiti and Bali. Tahiti is about a 7 hour flight from Los Angeles – but with only a 2 or 3 hour time change because it is directly south of Hawaii. Bali is about an 18 hour flight from the West Coast of the U.S. – but it has a 9 hour time difference from the West Coast of the U.S. and a 12 hour time difference from the East Coast of the U.S. – so plan on serious jet lag if you go there.

    Bali would be much less expensive than Tahiti. If you can only stay a week, I suggest a few days in the town of Sanur and a few days in Ubud. – Stay away from Nusa Dua – unless you are into luxury hotels and golf courses, and have little interest in mixing with the local culture. Sanur was the luxury area years ago before Nusa Dua was built. It is on the beach, but the local people still live there – whereas in Nusa Dua, they have been mostly kicked out to make room for big hotels.

    In my opinion, the Hindu culture of Bali is much more exotic and interesting than what you would find in Tahiti – plus Bali has a Monkey forest. – As far as natural beauty, most people don’t actually spend much time on the island of Tahiti, where the international jet planes land. They either go to Moorea, which is five minutes away by plane (or an hour or so by boat) – or they go to the more distant Bora Bora which is about an hour away by plane.

    Bora Bora is one of the most exotic beautiful islands in the world – It would certainly be a fine place for a honeymoon, but plan on bringing lots of money if you go there. Moorea reminded me of parts of Hawaii. Both of these islands have great beaches and snorkeling – better than you are likely to find in Bali.
