Bali is good but it I think you will be able to find some pretty special places in Thailand and Malaysia to relax in an island environment. I think, whether you want a fairly quiet place or a party, you dont need to go all the way to Bali to find it... still having said that, Bali is definately worth a trip at some point...

It's not just beaches and nightlife that you can find in Bali. You can either relax and enjoy the paddyfields or do some cycling, hiking, rafting, etc. And if you like to culture you should see Barong and Kecak dances.

zags... you are definately right there... there are some great hikes around bali and if your a culture buff then it is definately very worth while... I dont think you can say say it is better or worse than the Malaysian or Thai islands because culturally they are quite different...
