Default Where to go for a month

Okay,

This is a bit different for the travel section. I am trying to decided where to go for a month for vacation. Problem is I have been too allot of places already. It will be the middle of winter so some where warm is a must.

So idea under consideration

Safari again in South Africa, do not feel like getting shots again for kenya.
Buenos Aries, but not sure there is a months worth of things to do there
Vietnam and explore the coast and beaches
Bali Singapore and Kuala Lumpar, about a week at each local
NZ again
Australia the west cost this time

Good food is a must, good for photography, beaches is always good, scuba a plus if there are good spots. And other ideas is welcome. If possible decent roads as I like to really explore by renting a car.

Good food, great photography, beaches, scuba diving, decent roads to explore by car.......The perfect place I can recommend is the Sinai from Eilat to Ras Muhammad. Take an inland trip and visit Santa Catharina a monastery supposedly built on the spot where the burning bush was seen. And its at the foot of the mountain that Moses supposedly got his 10 commandments. The view from the top at sunrise is fantastic. You could cover it all in a month. The diving is second to none. Eilat is a great holiday spot. And right beside the main highway/road that runs through the town is the landing strip. Its amazing when you exit the airport you are in downtown Eilat. The second recommendation would be Egypt with the incredible pyramids, Temple of Luxor etc. Photographers paradise.

Bynx,

I took 2 cross country motorcycle trips when I was younger each about 3 weeks. So I have most of the US covered. That is why I am looking at international locations.

Well there is one place you have never been to and thats the Land of Bynx. You can leave your camera at home because there just isnt anything here worth shooting. Only the politicians.

Buenos Aires may not be worth a month (it's a huge metropoli tho) but the south of Argentina and the Provinces in the Cordillera de los Andes (Mendoza, Salta, Jujuy, etc.) will give you endless oportunities for shooting amazing and picturesque landscapes.

Thanks Ordo,

I was concern the BA area would not be a month long trip. I will look at the travel time to the areas you mention.
