We've scoped out the scene in nine way-exotic places—Tahiti! Vietnam! South Africa! India!—to help you plan the vacay you'll be bragging about, well, forever.

BALI

Three Must-Sees: Start your Bali-moon in the boho town of Ubud, where backpackers and yoginis tour temples, watch dancers, and browse boutiques stuffed with kites and carvings. The rice-paddy vistas and free yoga won us over at Uma Ubud. Doubles from $260 (low season) and $305 (high season), with breakfast.

Scoot to the coast and the Alila Manggis resort; the beaches here aren't super-touristy. Doubles from $150 (low season) and $180 (high season), with breakfast.

And when you're ready to play action stars, swing to Kuta Beach and the Legian Beach Hotel, in the heart of Bali's bumpin' nightlife. Doubles from $211 (low season) and $259 (high season), with breakfast.

Don't Forget to Pack: Your tightest yoga pants: That tush gotta look hot in downward dog.
