I have a month to travel in August and I would like to go somewhere inexpensive and exotic that has good hiking/outdoor activities and nice beaches and scuba diving. I’ve been to Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand and loved them, was thinking about the Philippines but heard that it is monsoon season there in August. Any suggestions?
All around Asia will be rainy so you can try Hawaii (Maui , Big Island) , I was mesmerized to see so many green sea turtle at big island, the reef becomes more serene when the fish and turtles compete to get to you. Do share your choice.
How about trying Cyprus? You can do all the activities you are after and at a relatively cheap cost. Also plenty of sunshine. Have you been there before?
