I am looking for islands and beached in Asia (Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, etc) that are similar to the Gili Islands in Indonesia. I really enjoy the relaxed setting with the option of partying at night...and of course the awesome beaches.
I have been to Thailand...Phi Phi, Railay, Samui, Tao, Phangan...just looking for more paradise Islands

In Penisular Malaysia, my favourites and romantic island is the Perhentian Islands. Untouched, white sand and clear sea.

I too think the Perhentians go closest to the Gilis. Specifically Perhentian Kecil.
There are other gems on the eastern peninsula coast. Kapas is closest to Gili Meno in that it is relatively unvisited. But it has better beaches than the Gilis and is has very quick and inexpensive access.
Ditto Redang for nicer beaches. But the main beach there is packed with package places which are very big with holidaying Malaysians and Singaporeans and increasingly, Chinese. Not much bottom budget accommodation.
Lang Tengah is a relatively unvisited gem but is expensive to access and to stay (for most resorts).
Tioman probably has the best mix of all these - a beach for everyone from high-rollers to backpackers.

Perhentian island is okay but my choice would be Redang island. A really relaxing and beautiful place where the mountains in the background are stunning. I haven't been there for 18 months so maybe I am a little behind the times. Clear blue waters for snorkling and glistening white sanded beaches... what else do you want!

Have you considered Langkawi ? It's a lovely island with many beautiful resorts around. I recommend the Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa. This city only comes alive at night, so you will definitely not be faced with a lack of nightlife here.
