Koh Phangan, Thailand
You’ve heard of that wild all-night bash called the Full Moon Party that happens every month on a beach in Thailand? The massive blow-out takes place on the Thai island of Ko Pha Ngan, but the good news is there are still plenty of days in a month when the party isn’t happening. Spend the time enjoying the island’s quiet natural beauty -- activities such as diving, snorkeling and kayaking abound. Top it all off with afternoons spent lazing on a hammock, and you’ll understand why Ko Pha Ngan was a longtime favorite of past kings of Thailand.
