Definitely Thailand, followed by Spain and Greece is a last option. Although the Greek Isles are gorgeous, a lot of the mainland travel is far over-rated in Greece and the Greeks were among the rudest people I've encountered anywhere in the world (that is not all encompassing of course, in order to be fair to those who are not!)... and in contrast, the Thais (and Cambodians and Laotians) are among the sweetest people I've encountered anywhere in the world!

Happy travels!

Depends on your objective! They are all uniquely different places. Other relevant points you might consider is your travel time frame. It's still a wonderful time, although hot in Spain (at least in the cities that have always appealed to me in the Andalusia region... and Seville is my favorite city, it's still quite hot!) Things will be winding down soon in Greece. If your idea of a great escape is sailing the Greek Isles, that probably still works. Thailand is in their monsoon summer period and the weather is not optimal. Of the three Thailand is my favorite, but the optimal time for Thailand to experience it at its best is December through late February, early March, and if you're planning island visits, the weather pattern is different on the east coast than it is the west... Thailand gets my vote for another reason, dollar value. The dollar is worth much more against the baht than it is the euro by far and the over all cost of things in Thailand versus Europe, you will get a lot more bang for your buck in Thailand. If you're comparing the local people... Of all the places I've traveled, the people in Thailand (along with Cambodians) are the sweetest people in the world. By constrast, I've never seen more rude people in one place than I did in Athens.
Whatever your choice, safe travels and enjoy! Tiffany

Go to Germany. It's not so warm but very . . . green. The people also make an effort to speak to you in English. Their hotels are great and affordable as well.

Thailand...LOS( Land of Smiles)

Warm to hot weather, fine beaches, awesome food, the woman there are as sweet as candy and very approachable. I have been fortunate enough to have traveled to Thailand and the Philippines the last 5 years.

If any of you guys out there want to know more, please...by all means , contact me. I am trying to get a gang of men to go and enjoy the man's Disneyland. It is so awesome, the beaches, ladies, food, golf, diving.

It just makes you re-think and want to re-tool your heart.
