Ko Tao
Drifting serenely in the Gulf of Thailand, the palm-fringed island of Ko Tao takes its name from the abundant sea turtles that reside on its shores. White sand beaches sheltered by steep hills—some only accessible with four-wheel drive vehicles—and 300 days of sun per year invite long afternoons of lounging on 2015's #5 Travellers’ Choice island in the world.

Bali
Bali, the #7 Travellers’ Choice Island in the world, is a living postcard, an Indonesian paradise that feels like a fantasy. Soak up the sun on a stretch of fine white sand, or commune with the tropical creatures as you dive along coral ridges or the colorful wreck of a WWII war ship. On shore, the lush jungle shelters stone temples and mischievous monkeys. The “artistic capital” of Ubud is the perfect place to see a cultural dance performance, take a batik or silver-smithing workshop, or invigorate your mind and body in a yoga class.

Phuket
Phuket offers a rainbow spectrum of spectacular holiday sights from blue lagoons and pink sunsets to orange-robed monks. Three wheeled-Tuk Tuks, taxis, buses and long tailed boats transport visitors between these marvels. Phuket's south coast offers its most popular beaches. The north is more tranquil. Koh Phi Phi, Phang Nga Bay and Patong Beach are popular spots. Diving, snorkeling, wind surfing and sailing are just a few active options. Inland, forested hills, mountains and cliffs wait to be explored.

Lombok is a paradise of pristine beaches, crystalline waterfalls and towering volcanoes. The milky white beaches of Kuta tumble into a deep blue sea that bobs with the kind of waves that surfers dream of.

To the north, the Gili Islands (accessible by ferry or chartered boat) feature some of the best water sports experiences around, including diving, sea kayaking and fishing.

Forested hills, romantic white-sand beaches and crystal-clear waters greet visitors to tropical Palau Langkawi, the largest of the 99 islands in Langkawi archipelago.
