The small city of Tulum has been inundated with publicity in recent years as celebrities have increasingly vacationed there; and for good reason, the place is a slice of paradise on Earth. It’s a stunning coastal beach town that was the among the last towns to be built by the Mayans. Along with gorgeous white sand beaches, Tulum offers incredibly preserved artifacts from the Mayans. The city was walled off for a number of years before it was discovered and opened to the public. In fact UNESCO recently declared Tulum a world heritage site.

Ko Phi Phi Islands, Thailand
One of our co-workers went to the Ko Phi Phi Islands in Thailand a few years ago and has been raving about it ever since! This tropical city is located a quick 90-minute flight and short ferry ride from the capital city of Bangkok. This island town is known for a vibrant night life, delicious traditional Thai cuisine, plenty of hikes and trek options, and crystal clear blue waters and sandy beaches. There is even a spot called “Monkey Beach” where wild monkeys roam about! Learn more and plan your trip now via Lonely Planet's Ko Phi Phi Travel Guide.
