Another place that doesn't seem like it can be real: Long Beach, on Koh Chang, Thailand. You can rent a beach bungalow for $8 a night, eat banana pancakes in the morning, and jump into the perfect blue water from a rope swing.
We almost stayed in Laos instead of going to Thailand...but I'm sure glad we didn't. Our hotel on #KohChang was tucked away in an old part of the island, in a real fishing village. This was the view from our back porch.
