    I'm trying to decide on the honeymoon location. I am torn between Bali or Greece. I would love to hear you feedback.

    Thanks,
    Jess

      I just looked up Bali, cause I didn't know too much about it, but my vote is Greece. The beauty of Bali doesn't compare to Greece to me.
      I have a fabulous photographer I can share in the United States Virgin Islands in late April/early MayP.M. if interested!http://img.weddingco....pvbh7hxc5u.png

        I am going to Bali, so I'm biased. My DH and I have been to various locations in the EU, and I wanted to do something I felt was unique and different. But, Greece is gorgeous. I do not think you can go wrong. Sorry...this probably wasn't a help. But, given my biased opinion - I would vote for Bali

          Well I see Greece all the time & while it is lovely, the food is fab and the people are very family oriented, I would go to Bali. It is a completely different culture and lifestyle to what we are used to and I personally think that is the purpose of travel, to see things that are different! :) If you want a completely unique holiday,go bali! If you want something quite similar to home then Greece is the spot!
          If you want any further info on Greece let me know...not that i'm as good as a travel agent or anything, but it is only 4 hour trip from home for me, My mother lived there for a few years when she was younger, and even my name is spelt in Greek! Hope you are able to narrow it down!

              Where are you planning on staying at Bali? There are so many amazing hotels that they all look very appealing.

                Thanks for the response. Where do you recommend that I should go to in Greece? I know for sure I would want to visit Athens but I'm not sure which island I should go to. I was thinking of Crete. What do you think?

                  Hi Jess,
                  I stayed in Crete for 2 weeks a while back. It's ok...Hersonissos is a real young person's party spot, that is why we went. If I was going to Honeymoon in Greece It would have to be Santorini or Kefalonia or maybe even Corfu -(as long as you stay away from the party areas & go for the remote & beautiful places). I know I wouldn't go to Crete or Zakynthos-I was in Zakynthos last September for my friends wedding...didn't like it that much to be honest. We stayed in Tsilvi and spent 2 weeks driving around to look at all the other towns...not great . Kefalonia is where the Nicholas Cage film, 'Captain Corelli's mandolin' was filmed so if you want to see it, rent the movie
                  If you choose Bali I believe Nusa Dua beach or Ubud are the spots to look at. Go on Tripadvisor and go to Bali...it will give you the hotels in order from best to worst as reviewed by regular people. I live by it, esp for photo's! I think you will get MUCH better quality in Bali. Unfortunately, Greece is the only country in the world that I have travelled to where the 'star rating' does not equal anywhere else! We have always stayed in 4* Hotels & they really do not compare to 2* back home. The Greeks rarely do 'luxury' the way we know it. Their plumbing systems on the Islands is terrible-be warned or be prepared!! LOL!!!! Try tripadvisor for both countries & see which you like the look of more!
                  Hope this helps!
                  Nickola

                  Just an after-thought...but while in Greece we have met many people from The States that are Island-hoping. 3 or 4 days in one place, then another,then another. Lots of the islands are reachable by ferry! If you get a good TA this should be an option for you!

                      I think Bali is a better honeymoon location.
