Famous for its mid-day naps, or siestas, Spain is an obvious choice when looking for a relaxing getaway. Located on the southern coast of Spain on the Mediterranean Sea, this city is a perfectly peaceful place to rest your weary bones amid any fast-paced euro trip. Purple bougainvillea and plush palm trees line the cobblestone streets. Want a little snack before your nap? The countless tapas bars right on the beach have all the fresh calamari and sangria needed to lull you into the perfect food coma.

Koh Lanta, Thailand
Both close enough and far enough from some of Thailand’s more party-central tourist areas, Koh Lanta is a blissful break away from all the chaos. Clifftop views of a relatively tourist-free beach and a self-guided jungle trek ending in a picturesque waterfall are only a few of the things that make this the perfect place to unwind. After a restful day in the sun be sure to head over to the legendary Why Not bar where you can see the stars, hear the waves and listen to some live music while being perfectly propped up on the comfy pillows that litter the floor.
