“Travel is about the gorgeous felling of teetering in the unknown”
This quote by a traveler and chef, Anthony Bourdain brilliantly sums up the zest of adventure and how unexpected and unpredictable journeys put together the best travel experiences.
Speaking of the unexpected and unknown, what can be better than a getaway to some of the world’s most exotic islands that offer picturesque landscapes, soothing views and the most calming and pampering environment ever?
Some of them are tropical destinations that are best for when you need some time for yourself and maybe even a fresh perspective apart from a rejuvenated soul. But, tropical or not, these exotic locales will nurture your tired minds and bodies amid nature, wildlife, flora, fauna and pristine waters.
When frangipani trees, tall palm trees, meticulous art creations, magnificent temples and a mystic spirituality combine together, you know you are in a magical place with a culture of its own and a romantic setting like none other. While the movie, Eat Pray Love showed how this island played a pivotal role in the life of Julia Roberts in helping her evolve as an individual, this is also a paradise for those looking for a little seclusion with its beach villas and certainly for seafood lovers. The villas mostly face beautiful blue lagoons and sunrises and sunsets are a treat for the eyes. Paddy rice fields filled with lush greenery, scintillating palaces and colorful, vibrant coral reefs and a charming nightlife are what makes this popular island an even more exciting place to be. Bonus point is vacationing here is easy on the pockets too.
