My wife and I finally ventured out of the Western hemisphere, and went to Koh Phangan in the Gulf of Thailand. We really, really loved it.
So what other places in the world are like this? And I'm not talking about the Full Moon Parties. By "this", I mean somewhat exotic, isolated, and comparatively undiscovered, yet really hip, relaxing, and adventurous all at once. And liberalized with respect to the rule of law, etc. If you've been there, you know what I mean.
Big plus for tropical islands, but it doesn't have to be one.
So Mephites, where should we go next? Is there any other place like this, or should we just go back to Koh Phangan?
