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 ...

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.

It was very tempting to put India on this list as even buying a train ticket in India is an adventure in itself, but Sri Lanka has pipped it to the post by being compact enough to explore in a couple of weeks, but fascinating enough to keep budding adventurers like yourself going back year after year. Exploring the sacred ...

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.

Chaotic, peaceful, loud, silent, colorful, and serene. China has it all!

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 ...

Gorgeous, colorful, diverse, and cheap, Nepal is a highlight of independent travel in Asia. Check out the medieval quarters of Kathmandu or Patan, circumambulate the enormous Boudhanath stupa, or trek to Everest Base Camp. Few countries on earth are more blessed with stunning natural beauty than Nepal, even if it's also firmly on the tourist trail.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

A country whose population has to be among the world's friendliest and most helpful Taiwan also excels at quality food. There is a lot to see in Taipei but I would straggly recommend going to other parts of Taiwan such as Taroko National Park, Hualien and Teitung.

It is pretty unbelievable how from the river islets of the far south to the lush green mountains of the the far north, there is not really an inch of this country that does not qualify as stunning scenery. Laos has so much to offer for appreciators of nature and adventurers. You can ride tubes down rivers passing limestone karsts, ...

Private speedboat or seaplane drops guests onto a droplet of white sand anchored amidst luminescent azure waters. Multiple award-winning Hufaven Fushi is an uber-stylish Maldives trendsetter. Being massaged to the rhythm of the reef, in the world’s first underwater spa, is surreal. My highlight is swimming to breakfast from my plush overwater villa, with infinity pool, alongside friendly reef shark ...
