Anything But Basic: 25 Unique Destinations To Visit This Spring Break (Photos)

How many times are you going to book that same flight to Jamaica, just to stay at the same all-inclusive resort you've stayed at every year?

Time and time again, loyal spring breakers get dragged into trips they'd rather not experience for the fifth consecutive time.

But, they go, anyway, because their friends are going, and because staying home all break to create new, brilliant ways to use Nutella doesn't sound that fun.

What if, this time around, you did all the planning? What if you convinced everyone to see what else the world has to offer?

Because, honestly, there's a whole lot of world out there, outside of Cabo San Lucas, Daytona Beach and Cancun.

Those destinations are basic, and we have the better destinations to prove it.

If you're looking to steer clear of the cheesy, neon bathing suits and mediocre beer to opt for a high-quality spring break experience, you might want to stay at the Castle Hotel in China that looks like something out of a Disney movie.

Yes, spring break can be magical -- if you let it.

Or, maybe you'd like to grace the stone-arched beaches of New Zealand rather than fall on your head after a keg stand somewhere in Florida.

However you plan on reinventing your spring break experience, we've got a solid, basic-proof itinerary for you, thanks to our good friends over at StumbleUpon.

Below are 25 unique destinations to visit this spring break (or, at least, to daydream about).
