    San Diego is a cool place but it feels like Brisbane tbh - big country town with not much to do. Best selling point is its close to a good zoo and the beaches. For some reason they have really good sushi though. Weird.

    Pretty much this, from my experiences.

    I was in La Jolla in October last year for a wedding, which is a town on the northern coast of San Diego. Super chill, really liked the vibe there. Good little bars, friendly people.

    We hired a car (hire a Mustang, heaps of fun) for 4 days for coming back from Vegas back to San Diego. Drove out through Death Valley, really cool scenery, up to Santa Barbaba, another chilled out beach town. I enjoy driving, so I guess it depends. People say driving through LA is a nightmare, but I like doing that kind of shit. Get a good feel for the city that way.

    Yeah LaJolla is really nice - all the little towns along that coast between LA and SD are cool little coastal hippy towns populated by rich people. Think The OC meets Noosa.

    Off to Koh Samui in August if anyone has any tips/experiences they'd recommend.
    Found a couple of bars that do craft beer, will be doing a bit of hiking and lots of snorkelling but definitely open to suggestions as I've got a week there.
