You cant convert on a tourist Visa..
And Aus and many other countries are amongst those under the wrong convention
I think we are getting mixed up here as I went in to the country on a European passport that didn’t require a code so different rules apply & entered on a bike that I had obtained in Thailand and crossed through on the Cambodian border

But

I still like Cook Islands as 1 it is different country I haven’t been to but Tahiti I was awesome.

The link here shows where we stayed. The couple having dinner on the beach is what we did and the rooms amazing. But pricey naturally. The chapel is where we would get married.. also in video.
I’ll find one of cool islands place which is also nice but not in same class


Thing I found with traveling heading back to the same place the second time is ever as good & so many other places in the world!


What’s the time frame would you be heading there for?
I’ve never been to those islands but am told you get board after 4 or 5 days there

I agree and that’s my argument about going back to Tahiti. Although there are 100s of Islands to explore. We were never bored the whole time we were there. In Morea you are on the main island. We ride a bike one day around the whole island, went for walks one day and are out (first day), did a tour of lookouts etc another and kayaked our to sharks and rays another. There are a heaps of yours and such. On bora bora we were on a motu which is a island off the main island ... over water bungalow which was amazing. Again, snorkeled one day, did a tour another swimming with Sharks ... amazing .. and a jet ski tour ... 4 night. But now we have done that ???? Always had plenty to do.

Will just be 7 nights on cook island ... they are throwing in the wedding which is nice ...but that is just a private villa ... own pool and spa and just 7 of them but eating out is 10 min up the road.

Hey mate i actually work for the best hotel and resort company in the Asia Pacific Region. Sofitel Bora Bora private island resort is absolutely beautiful. Singapore is another great place. Japan for its 2 very different history past and present. I suggest getting a membership to save as much as possible there is nothing wrong with having extra spending money while on holiday

Okay - Arutaki and Rarotonga booked for May next year.

Looking to 2021 or late 2020 - thinking Nepal for a week maybe? Anyone been? To be honest a bit over the SE Asian countries - but Hoian would be nice to finish off Vietnam. Sri Lanka - anyone been there?

Okay Cook Islands mostly booked.

Looking for somewhere a bit different and was thinking maladives in an over water bungalow. Thinking it’s a poor mans Bora Bora but also hear good things. They have some good deals I saw in the paper the other day. Any thoughts or other recommendations

I am in Sri Lanka at the moment, not a football of any kind to be seen. Did see five games of cricket being played on 1 field simultaneously. Damn confusing.
In the Maldives on Monday, will let you know.

Cheers, was thinking about Sri Lanka before the bombings - something a little different to other parts of Asia but still lots of culture. Look forward to your feedback and recommendations.

Never been but over the years of talking to the people who have been, most seem to be in to their diving
