Bo Phut, Thailand
At one time, the Thai island of Ko Samui was the secret island haven for backpackers and escapists, with enticingly inexpensive rustic bungalows that overlooked the golden sand and dazzlingly blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand. The secret got out, creature comforts snuck in, but the serenity of sunbathing on a warm rock under a tropical sky, lost in daydreams and softly caressed by sea breezes, remains unchanged.
