    Myanmar is a country changing fast. It's recently opened up to mainstream tourism and at the current moment can barely keep up with the demand. There are some beautiful places to visit, but the biggest joy of visiting is probably the people of Myanmar, some of the friendliest I've met.

    Japan is a large country to visit. The dense population means that even a small area offers a wide variety of experiences and environments. Aspects seem familiar to a North American but other aspects are totally foreign. Researching before you visit is a good idea, and speaking a little Japanese helps grease the social wheels.

    Tremendous diversity and amazing mass appeal await you in Thailand. Lovely beaches in the south, a thriving capital city, friendly rural areas and adventurous mountain regions are each appealling for in their own ways. I enjoy the off-the-beaten path rural villages where daily life goes on largely uninfluenced by the tourist industry. Yes, plenty such places exist in Thailand if ...

    Gorgeous mountains. Kind people. Spectacular food. Nepal has something for everyone -- only downside is that too many people now know this and the number of tourists can sometimes be stifling. A spectacular country. Find your own path and Nepal will reward.

    Beautiful, undeveloped, laid-back Laos, with its fabulously kind and welcoming folk, may just be the sweetest country in SE Asia. Each and every place I visited in the country qualified as a highlight. It's fantastically cheap, with great food and lovely countryside, but it's the supreme goodness of its people that set it apart. Spend a week letting the slow ...

    Armenia is a very rewarding travel destination. Very few travelers make it there. The highlight is undoubtedly meeting the people of Armenia who are very curious and willing to strike up a conversation with any foreigner who is interested enough in their country to travel there. There are also some incredible, remote monasteries to visit. Armenia has one of the ...

    China is the first country I ever traveled to and despite my reservations regarding its government, I absolute love Zhongguo (it's China's name in Chinese and means "middle kingdom"). The food is diverse, varied, and delicious. The landscape is overwhelmingly vast and the people while reserved are very friendly and hospitable to foreigners.

    Indonesia! The rupiah is currently weak which means more value for your money. Click here to view photos of Indonesia: It's a HUGE country though spanning 3 time zones and 17 thousand islands. I've personally backpacked Java and Bali, South Sulawesi, and Timor--all beautiful regions with beautiful characteristics of their own. Java is the cheapest but rich in history--cultural, ...

    Granted, Singapore has an obnoxious government. Its meddlesome approach to personal freedoms and perceived social ills is irritating at best, and shades of totalitarianism at its worst. Still, no one on Earth is well-governed, and acknowledging that fact, one quickly finds that Singapore is a very easy place to like: clean, beautiful, and safe, with loads of interesting sights and ...

    Though this tiny peninsular nation (effectively an island cut off from the mainland by a hostile N. Korea) constitutes the 11th-largest economy in the world, and produces more electronic high technology than countries a hundred times its size, South Korea is a place largely off the tourist map, and shockingly little-known. It might be that Korea is a classic "insider's" ...

    While Thailand and Vietnam get all the Southeast Asian press, the lovely nation of Cambodia often gets overlooked. Few ever go beyond the dark reputation of Phnom Penh's infamous Tuol Sleng prison and the Killing Fields, or 'must-see' reputation of the temples of Angkor in the north. Some travellers even skip the country entirely, choosing to devote more time to ...

    Sri Lanka

    Easily one of the most charming and underrated destinations in Asia, the tiny island of Sri Lanka (it's about the size of Ireland, but produces fewer hard-drinking novelists) packs an amazing -- and amazingly diverse -- range of attractions into its easily-traversed mass. With lovely, breezy beaches from Bentota in the west to Mirissa in the south to Arugam Bay ...

    A semi-tropical archipelago of some 8000 islands, the Philippines are an absolute highlight of SE Asia. Stunning mountains, gorgeous beaches, a unique blend of Spanish and Asian cultures, and some of the nicest people anywhere in the world. Best of all? The crowds from Thailand or Bali are nowhere to be found. Get outside the tourist enclaves in Boracay or ...
