Avoid the Backpacker Trail. Thailand's 10 Best Hidden Beaches

Thanks to its incredible natural beauty, interesting history, and friendly population, Thailand has emerged as one of the world's most well-known and celebrated tourism destinations. With white sand beaches and huge marble cliffs, tropical rainforests and lush rice fields, huge cities and some of the world's best small beach towns, it's no wonder that Thailand consistently ranks in the top-ten most visited countries worldwide.

However, many visitors don't get quite what they expected upon their arrival in the Kingdom. The stunning beaches they saw in promotional materials and travel blogs are still there, but instead of a single traveler lounging in a hammock, they're packed with package tourists and families out to get their annual dose of sun before returning home for the winter.

Zero-Tourist Bali: How to Enjoy Indonesia's Hottest Island on a Budget

Known around the world as a stunning tourism destination for both mega-rich millionaires and low-budget tourists, Bali is a truly enchanting island. With incredible native wildlife, beautiful beaches, and a year-round tropical climate, the island is one that's been attracting visitors for hundreds of years, with no signs of slowing down.

But despite its obvious charms, Bali does have one major disadvantage for visitors – it's very much discovered. While postcards from the island may reveal empty beaches and incredible sunsets, it's a rare sight to see a Bali beach with anything less than one hundred tourists sunbathing on its sands. A decades-long promotional effort, combined with word of mouth, has made the island one of the most visited destinations in the world.
