Hi! I'm planning my honeymoon to Asia, during next April. We're planning to go to Bali (Ubud), Bangkok, North Vietnam, and we can add EITHER SINGAPORE or SIEM REAP (CAMBODIA)... Which would you recommend the most?

We need to decide really soon... and we just can't decide!!! I'll be very grateful if you can help us!! :)

Depends whether you want a modern interesting city or impressive temples.

I vote Singapore.

I spent 4 days in each Singapore and Siem Reap, both are excellent but completely different, as Andyf says, research a little into what you'd prefer and choose that one.

If i was deciding Siem Reap is slightly more culturally rewarding for me.

I will highly recommend Cambodia. If I was having a honeymoon, I would definitely look at Koh Kong for romance!

Ana,
You have to decide if you like trudging around old rocks in the hot sun or visiting a modern city. April is usually the hottest month of the year in most of SEA. I have been in Siem Reap in April and it was brutally hot. A few hours of rock hopping and you drained. Take a break to cool off and back at the rocks. By the second day it was more work than fun. The fun level goes down considerably when the temperature shoots past 'scorching hot'. My photo gallery has heaps of Cambodia/Angkor photos.

Singapore is an ultra modern city with limited sightseeing. But, it does have first class hotels and a nice beach over on Sentosa. Take a look at their sightseeing options , Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa. Of course world famous shopping as well. I am going to vote Singapore. I just think you will have more fun as newlyweds there than rock hopping around Angkor in the hot sun. Good luck with your planning.

As stated above the two locations are so completely and utterly different that it's a question only you can answer. You know your interests, likes/dislikes. etc. better than anyone.

Cheers,
Terry

While you're quite right, Terry, the original poster also asked for your recommendation. SG or SR? Come on, get off the fence! ;-)

I'm not on the fence at all, Andy. The Original Post is an illogical question and thus my opinion, your opinion or anyone's opinion is utterly meaningless. If they didn't know before they posted the query the OPer must now realize how completely and totally different the two destinations are so they have the info required in order to make a logical choice that fits their personal interests and requirements.

Congrats to the happy couple on their nuptials and I trust their honeymoon will be delightful - now that they have the facts to make an informed decision.

Have fun and travel safe!

Cheers,
Terry
