Koh Tao, Thailand

The path to Sai Nuan beach is long and confusing, and you'll need to cross several resorts to get there, but you won't regret it. The beach is one of the best ones I've been so far, and there's usually almost no one. After relaxing all day at the beach I said goodbye to Koh Tao. Where am I going next?
