    @yanamari:  For us Bora Bora is a direct flight out of LAX 8 hours, so an 8 day trip was reasonable. Maldives would have meant a 18-20 day trip with stops in London and Dubai to split up the flight. My friend went to Maldives for her honeymoon and spent a total of 36 hours traveling once you factored in the waiting at airport for connecting filghts. She flew Maldives -> Dubai -> London -> LAX. The route we wanted. So if we opted for Maldives we wanted to make it worth it and have a longer trip.

    So even though Bora Bora and Moorea was expensive, going through three countries and an extra 10 days cost more. The hotels in Dubai and Maldives were the same price per night as our hotel in Bora Bora so the quantity of nights definitely changed it for us.

    @yanamari:  no problem. You are a lot further east so it might be easier and cheaper flight wise for you guys.

    I spend hours each month traveling by air for business, no way would I spend 15+ hours on a plane getting to my honeymoon.  If all those were within 3 hours of home though, I totally do the Maldives. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Bora Bora all the way!!! It’s where we’re going and I can’t wait!

    If you can, fly business class, because it’s a LOOONNNNNGGG way. Not just the flight to Tahiti, but then getting from Tahiti to Bora Bora… From what I hear though, everyone says it’s worth the long trip.

    @yanamari:  I was all about Hawaii. Feel like I got the most bang for my buck- stayed in a very luxurious hotel. Loved it!

    We road tripped through the Canadian Rockies and hiked every single day!  The pros were: 1. we could drive there in our own car, 2. same time zone – no jet lag recovery, 3. plan it last minute.

    I voted for the Maldives. I have heard it’s beautiful. I don’t think I would try to combine it with Santorini, though. Too much travel and Greece deserves its own trip! ๐Ÿ˜‰
