Great post! I’ve been luck enough to visit some of these and I agree off the beaten track places are much more special. There’s one little known island in Thailand (probably the only one left these days!) that hardly anyone seems to know about called Koh Kradan. It only has a few accommodation options, no roads but the most amazing white beaches and isn’t that difficult to get to. You should definitely pay it a visit if you can. I’ve written a post about it and thought I’d share it incase it’s useful to your readers on how to get there and where to stay etc: http:///2015/03/18/koh-kradan-thailands-secret-island-paradise/
The coastal region, particularly in places such as Lima, has a plethora of fabulous seafood dishes, not least of which is ceviche, the national dish of Peru, which consists of a mouth-watering blend of chilli, lime juice, red onion, coriander and marinated white fish. The jungle region is abundant with river fish stews and exotic fruits that are unheard of in the Western world and are a taste sensation. The Andes region, particularly during the dry season, has bitterly cold nights and so heart-warming roasted meats and stews are on the menu. Wherever you eat in Peru, you will eat exotic delicious flavours, and eat well.
