holiday of a lifetime...please help? thailand? malaysia?....

hi all,

really need some help. me and my husband are looking to do a 2 weeks holiday on feb 09. we want to see as much as we can. went to thailand 2 years ago, and although not hardened travellers, we want to simply see some amzing places!!

we cannot decide where to go....thailand, vietnam....cambodia....malaysia.......with only 2 weeks can any one begin suggesting things for us? we are late both 30, enjoy relaxing, history, shopping, culture, just about everything, so any responses would be so so gratefully appreciated. we love bangkok, and phuket, but just don't want to go back to the same places, but are stuck on what to do.

please lovely people help! any ideas on what would be best see and places for 2 weeks, we don't mind if we are constantly on the go for 2 weeks. just want to make this a holiday of a life time.

Perhaps the following would help:

Relaxing: 1. Langkawi, Malaysia - resort island, duty-free haven (lots of cheap beers!!), nice beaches and can do some jungle tracking 2. Cameron Highlands, Malaysia - Cool weather, beautiful tea plantation scenery, lots of fresh vegetables

History/Culture: 1. Siem Reap, Cambodia - amazing Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom, you need at least 4 days here this ruins is HUGE!! 2. Melaka, Malaysia (UNESCO World Heritage Site) - beautiful old town, the red buildings, ruins of st paul, portugese settlement, lots of antiques and arts shops. 3. Penang, Malaysia (UNESCO World Heritage Site)- Beautiful temples, beautiful old town, nice beaches, lots of super delicious food!! :)

Shopping: 1. Singapore!! - Mega shopping malls at the famous orchard road!! 2. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia -KLCC, Megamalls etc.

If you guys are a bit adventurous, then you should be going to Borneo. Kota Kinabalu or Kuching City is a good starting point to venture into the Borneo.
