Hi all,
First time posting 😊
I have done so much research that I have confused myself!
Traveling from Melbourne, Australia in June/July 2019, with husband and 17 and 15 year old. Not looking at spending a squillion $$. Would like something with plenty of activities, some relaxing beach time (snorkeling would be great) and a bit of shopping. Went to Thailand 2015 and didn’t love it (didn’t hate it either!) was thinking Bali (went 25 years ago) but worried it will be too similar to Thailand. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Perhaps look at the things you did not care for in Thailand and find a country without those distractions.

If you did not care for the nightlife in Thailand perhaps choose Malaysia. (Malaysians are in the top category of foreign tourists visiting Thailand. Besides shopping and sampling food - they go there for nightlife, to drink alcohol and have fun without the limits they have back home.)

Malaysia is spread out a bit but not as expensive as nearby Singapore. (I think Singapore is still the most expensive place to visit, if not second place.) Perhaps you can recall what you liked in Thailand and see if it is available in Malaysia. Singapore, my opinion, is okay for a few days visit since you are a short flight or train or bus ride to Kuala Lumpur. The food was mostly okay. I ate a lot of fried rice!

For whatever country you visit research the weather available for the month you visit.

Good luck.

If you specify what you didn't like it would make it easier to know what not to recommend .

If you’re planning to visit in Asia, you must visit Singapore. Singapore packs a surprisingly massive number of attractions: verdant parks, world-class zoos, luxurious hotels, historical structures, and deliciously cheap eats, all in a land. And if you wish to have beach time predominantly you can choose Bali as the destination. The best places for snorkeling in Bali are readily accessible; you only need to hit the seaside, don a mask, a snorkel and fins, and head into the water to enjoy beautiful underwater gardens teeming with tropical marine life.

Happy Travelling!

It is a very nice place but very very expensive (especially by Asian standards) and the OP did say that they didn't want very expensive.

September in India marks the beginning of pleasant season. The monsoon showers are mild, and most states will showcase greenery around. If you are planning to visit the country, we have curated the best places to visit in India during September.

1)Rajasthan:

Rooted deep in history, replete with palaces, forts and havelis, Rajasthan is an integral cultural part of India. During September, the desert state witnesses mild rainfalls and cold weather. It is an ideal destination for someone to explore some deep-rooted history.

2)Ladakh:

Ladakh is one of the beautiful places to visit in India. During September, the mountains are in its prime beauty as you can clearly spot the glaciers.Top activities include trekking, monastery visit, visit to Mount Everest base, shopping, sightseeing, camping and others.

3)Kerala:
The otherwise hot and humid climate of Kerala cools down during September. The backwaters of state look mesmerising, and you can book a houseboat for your stay as well.The top activities to enjoy are sunbathing, Ayurveda massage, cruising, catamaran ride, trekking, sightseeing and also witness the boat race events.
