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.

For savvy travelers, one would have to visit Singapore at least once. For foodies out there, you'll have a gastronomic feast with all the delicious plates they have to offer. I'd definitely go back for another visit sometime soon.

What I liked best about India was the diversity of things to see, do and experience. It's a place where many languages are spoken and many religions practised. Mumbai is colossal, a financial centre with an equally powerful film industry and great architecture. Bangalore is less attractive visually, but very fun with lots of good bars and an impressive tech ...

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 ...

The people of Cambodia have suffered through not one but many devastating conflicts throughout their history, but despite centuries of hardships, they continue to spring back to life with verve. In addition to the fabled temples of Angkor, the country is also home to a tropical coastline, a swiftly developing eco-friendly adventurer’s paradise in the mountains, and a capital city ...

A bit more expensive than neighbouring Thailand, and a bit cheaper than Singapore, peninsular Malaysia (haven't been to Borneo) for me is mostly an eating destination: a place to mow down on the fantastic mix of Malay, Indian and Chinese cuisine. Beyond that Malaysia is, generally speaking, a more conservative Islamic state than those that surround it, and it's not ...

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.

This place made me feel at home despite being a brief traveler, the infectious down to earth quality grants Taiwan tremendous appeal. Taiwan has the best of street foods and night markets; beautiful, undisturbed views of the mountains and the sea just a hour away from Taipei city; cutesie hobbie imports from Japan and high end fashion brands from Europe; ...

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" ...

I'm not alone when I say this, and you'll be well served to listen: Vietnam is not the friendliest place on Earth. It is, in fact, difficult to imagine a place less outwardly warm and welcoming of visitors that enjoys such prominent status on the tourist trail, and of the travellers that you meet all thru mainland SE Asia, probably ...

It's home! And I aim to spend more fun nights there again! Look out PI. I'll be back in 2012 bigger, better, and badder than ever before. And I just might bring some friends along for the ride. Tropical weather, grilled delights, and sleepy days shall reign again!

My lovely country, explore the beautiful natural and cultural that we have, from Aceh, Sumatra, Kalimantan, Jawa, Yogyakarta to Papua. Indonesia is one of the most beautiful countries on earth.

The Maldives’ vast collection of low-lying islands offers a seemingly limitless paradise of azure reef-fringed lagoons, palm-shaded beaches, and lavish private-island resorts—many built directly over the Indian Ocean. Where to Stay: One&Only Reethi Rah, a resort on one of the largest islands in the North Male Atoll, with 130 villas, many with private pools.

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.

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.

The last 10 years has seen an explosion of tourism in Laos with backpackers spilling in from neighboring Thailand. With not the off-the-beaten-path destination it once was, life is still unhurried here and infrastructure basic. Extremely friendly people and beautiful landscape and culture are the main draws. Great country to relax and take it easy. My only criticism is that ...

Georgia is a small country with a lot of diverse offerings. From sub-tropical Black Sea coast to alpine mountains to wine country to bubbling hot springs to ancient villages to multiple nationalities/languages to breakaway territories. The Georgian people are hospitable and curious and friendly to foreigners. This is the cradle of world wine making and a fantasticly rewarding place to ...

Mongolia deserves to be admired because of its beauty, nature and people. It is one of the very few countries where ways of living have not changed for centuries - especially on the country side, with the exception of some electronics and motorbikes/cards. The people still move from one place to another, having a Nomad lifestyle, yet they are contented. ...
