Hi people i am new to this forum which i stumbled across during search for the big question on my mind right now:Where to go for me and my brothers september holiday??

We are both 23 years old looking for beaches, nature and nightlife at reasonable costs. I would prefer south east asia as this part of the world looks absolutely stunning!! My first idea was Bali as this is described as paradis of earth and is also easy on the budget for students like us:) Although most foregin departments warns about travelling in Indonesia due to terrorism!

We plan on travelling for about two weeks and plan on spending about 800-1000$ each on location. Anyone been to Bali recently or have info on safety there?

Otherwise i would greatly appreciate any other suggestions in Asia (or else) where one can find white beaches, great nature and nightlife for a reasonable budget?

thanks!

bali is safe - but small and much more expensive than Thailand or other se asia countries

In Bangladesh, there are few nicest beaches. Among them Cox's Bazar is the world's longest unbroaken sea beach (100 km long). You can also take a waliking through the beach.

Bangladesh is also a cheap country. here you can stay at hotels only for USD 5 (With Bathroom & Fan).

So, please think about Bangladesh.

Hi
You could always try SE Asia and start Thailand and have a week!!!!!!!!!! in Pattaya but you will fall in love and never go home again.
You can catch a bus from Pattaya and be on Cambodia beaches in 6-8hrs and great nightlife then jump a boat and be in Siagon in 4-5hrs.
Its so cheap you cant spend money only what your girlfriends!!! will make you part with!!!!!!!!!! so tell your Mom/Dad goodbye and that is the last time you will see Denmark.
For Info buy Lonely Planet SE Asia on a Shoestring and have a wonderful trip and might see you Jan/Feb 06.

Bangladesh became independent 33 years ago (in 1971).

oh gods - I am not talking about your 'national' independence (whatever that might mean) - but about your blatant plug for 'your' country on any thread.

are you a nationalist or something? member of the BNP?

The Philippines is an excellent place to go if you're looking for beautiful beaches on a tight budget. Everything in the Philippines is amazingly cheap. If you want beaches, make sure not to go anywhere right outside of Manila, because Manila is very polluted. The islands of Cebu and Palawan are absolutely georgeous, but Mindanao is to be avoided because of the Abu Sayaff extremists who make a hobby of kidnapping tourists and demanding ransoms.

My opinion is that Bali is one of the cheapest destinations with plenty of great beaches, nice people and a huge night life. Safety in Indonesia can be a concern but despite the Sari club bombing I think Bali is safe enough and I've never had any concerns on my 3 trips there.

Other then Bali I would suggest checking out Thailand or the Philippines!
