(Newser) – What's the modern traveler to do in a world of ever-shrinking borders and ever-fewer spots of true exoticism? Why, simply crib off GQ's list of the classiest spots slightly off the beaten path:

  1. Cesme, Turkey: the Hamptons of Anatolia
  2. Formentera, Spain: No foam parties allowed
  3. Stockholm, Sweden: Land of Viking nurses

  1. Montauk, NY: The non-Hamptons of Long Island
  2. Libyan coast: From Tripoli's charm to Leptis Magna's majesty
  3. Pantelleria, Spain: Favorite of the fashion elite
  4. West Country, England: Not-too-trendy coastal getaway for jaded Londoners
  5. Ojai, Calif.: Mountain-cradled historical escape for those actor types
  6. Mykonos, Greece: Ouzo-soaked fashion center
  7. St. Tropez, France: Still cool
