Bali is South East Asia top destination for surf, no matter if you’re a beginner or a pro. With places like Padang Padang and Uluwatu as the surfers favorite spots. Bali offers the perfect wave conditions thanks to the swells coming from the Antarctic with its south-west and south-east coasts being literally  every surfers paradise.

      A big hug from Portugal

  2. I spent a month in Bali and had a great time. There’s something for everyone! I think Ubud was my favourite place.

  3. I do really love Bali, I wish could spend a month to enjoy paradise Bali.

  4. For the Gulf of Thailand, Khanom has an unspoilt 8km long beach. It’s very peaceful there. For the Andaman side, don’t forget Krabi! It has a nicer vibe than some of the other places mentioned. You can go to Ao Nang and then take a boat to Hat Railay or Hat Ton Sai. Hat Ton Sai has more backpacker style accommodation. Hat Railay and Ton Sai are excellent for rockclimbing.
