Hi Guys

We start a round the world trip in March 08. Starting in South America then coming home for a wedding and leaving for Asia in September 08. We plan to do India/Nepal/Thailand/Cambodia/Laos/Vietnam and the Philipines leaving for Australia in Jan09. So me being a girly girl that likes Christmas I was wandering if anybody can give me some ideas of a nice place to spend Christmas.

My family is from the Philipines so it would be nice to see:) Cebu but I think it maybe a little early on the trip so we will probably be around Laos or Thialand for Christmas...

Thanks in advance for your help.

How about a nice tropical island in Thailand.

This is Koh Nangyuan (Just off Koh Samui). Very nice.

The island is like paradise.. it is just a short boat ride from Koh Tao and about a 30 minute ride from Koh Samui. I would HIGHLY recommend staying on this island for atleast 3 days [ any longer and you may get bored as there isn't much to do on the island except for diving, swimming and snorkeling].

There is only one resort on this island, so 'rooms/huts' may book out quickly for that time of year. This is the resorts website: Nangyuan Dive Resort.
