I don't have an answer, but I would ask if you (OP) have a definition for "exotic." To me, that's a very relative term. A place that is strange and exotic and foreign to me is just mundane ordinary life to someone who lives there. And the reverse of that is true as well.

I live in a typical two-story house in an ordinary suburb. It all seems very plain and normal to me. But I have friends from South Korea who live stacked up on top of thousands of other people in high-rise buildings in a huge crowded city, and they come here and see my house, with just one family living on a third of an acre, surrounded by trees, and it's almost beyond their comprehension. The way that I live is as exotic to them as the way they live is exotic to me.

Exotic can mean different things to different people.

Indeed, exotic is relative to the person.
Anyway, if we think of any area on the Earth's surface that happens to be most exotic for most people, almost anywhere inland Antarctica may qualify. Maybe the McMurdo Dry Valleys for a more specific spot.

The Azores always seem particularly exotic to me.

What in particular do you find exotic about the Azores?

Without knowing exactly what you mean by "exotic", I'll answer with as "different" as my homeland, the USA. From my travels only, my answer would be Nepal.
