Vacations that are far from smoking

We want to take a vacation next January or February. The destination should be cool or cold, and most importantly, should be as smoke-free as possible. What are your ideas on where we should go?

I am significantly allergic to cigarette smoke. Exposure causes asthma-like attacks. This can make travel difficult. Even in locations where indoor smoking is banned, it seems that smokers still cluster around buildings and transportation hubs, making things miserable for someone like me. So we are looking for a place where either policies or culture or both conspire to make unwanted exposure to smoke in public places uncommon.
Ideally, we'd like to vacation outside the US. We enjoy food, archeological sites, and museums, about in that order. We're not afraid of non-English-speaking locales. Also, herds of camera-toting tourists are not our thing, but we can survive just fine in either large city or more rural situations.
Thanks for your suggestions!
