I'm debating where to go on Honeymoon in Apr/May 2013 (advanced planning just to keep me sane at work).
I have always wanted to go to Sabah (Borneo) and travel around, climb mount Kinabalu, see the orangutans and snorkel etc.
But I'm torn as I would also love to go back to the Maldives for the amazing snorkeling. If I went Borneo I would probably go for 3 weeks whereas 2 weeks in the Maldives would be more than enough.
I guess because we've had some quite bad rain/storms in the maldives, I worry that if the weather was bad again, that there would be periods of boredom when im stuck in my room with nothing (almost nothing) to do. Whereas at least in Borneo I could still go out exploring.
Our budget would probably me an absolute maximum of £5000 for us both including flights/transfers (ideally less as we have to pay for the wedding). If I did decide on the Maldives I'd be looking at Robinson Club (if price was in budget) or somewhere with an amazing reef and full board/AI.
Any ideas/thoughts would be welcome especially from anyone who has been to both the Maldives and Borneo (or similar area - Thailand, Philipines, indonesia etc) and can make some comparisons.
