I am hoping someone out there has a great suggestion of somewhere to go in July. I am graduating grad school and want to travel somewhere I have never been before (which is not hard to do).
I want to go somewhere warm, but not excruciatingly hot. I want beach time, and places to explore that are not too crowded. Somewhere to stay that is fun and affordable. Ideally I love locals areas that don't make you feel to o much like tourist. I want to feel like a local, and not have the locals hate you. I'm thinking Greece, Morocoo, Peru, Thailand.
Any suggestion, info is much appreciated.

Hello Merebrick

Choose one, where it isnt tourist season.
Not Greece. July is heavy tourist season there.
Thailand is good. It is the rainy seaon, in July, but it is not so bad. There will still be plenty of warm sunny hours.
What about the island, in this link. Sombody recommended it, to me, the last time I was in Thailand. They said, it is not very touristed.
I did not go there yet, but I intend to.

Why dont you try Kenya, in those months its quite warm and very relaxing and if you are looking for a cheap deal that you wont mind spending happily, then Kenya is the real place. I have many friends from there I could introduce you to, friends who know up and about the country. Also I think if you hook up with the locals you will feel part of the team.

I would advice you head to that country, nice, very nice!

Thailand is probably the best choice there and Peru isn't bad either. I would go to Thailand myself, now I'm stuck in Italy in July...haha great. I didn't plan it like that, it's just that increased passport times have pushed me up a month

Go to Malta.. It's a small country directly south the Italian island of Sicily. and south west of Greece. It is not only beautiful but it is not a huge tourist laden area. It is also the southern most European country.
