Think $70/1 hour/1 highlight, most ladies in Thailand will stay the entire night with you for that kinda money.
so you recommend to go to Thailand when it's reasonable prices in Singapore where sex tourism is legal with better service or better safe requires.

It's only illegal in Thailand on paper, just check out nightlife videos on youtube of Bangkok/Pattaya/Patong

But then, if one is into sex tourism, why bother stopping by SG? Go to Thailand. That really is a beginner's place for sex tourists. No prior research or whatever required. Show up there and the pimps will find you!
Wait for the promos, $99 return for airfare, plus cheap accommodation for $30 a night, that's about $230 for a weekend, plus the food is cheap, if you're a money rich but time poor Singaporean that's nothing really. 2 hours is not a short trip? That's nothing.

There's also Batam and Bintam in Indonesia, a ferry ride away.

Singapore to Phuket is less than half the distance. In fact if you live in say Penang, Malaysia, Phuket is basically a hop across the border.

Any Asian country where the majority of the people are not living in bone crushing poverty, is "Asia For Beginners". So that would include countries like South Korea and Japan.

The real true Asia that gives Westerners a culture shock is passing through a slum in Manila or Bangkok for example.

Well there are other challenges in Japan and South Korea. I'm going to Japan in October, so I'll give my observations, but I suspect if you go out of the usual Kyoto-Nara-Osaka-Fuji/Hakone-Tokyo tourist trail it gets a bit harder. Still not difficult like travelling through less developed parts of the world, but no Singapore either. I'd say a lot of rural Thailand would be the same.

You can visit Manila or Bangkok without going to the slums. You might witness a bit from afar but it is not a very big culture shock. It is not like thereare no homeless people in the US or there are no people living in dumps there. On the contrary, Singapore and Hong Kong can give you sticker shock. When you go to Bangkok, you can go fine dining for the cost of eating at hawker stalls in Singapore. For that reason, Singapore is not exactly very beginner friendly if you care about costs.

Well most 'beginner' travellers tend not to be budget/adventurous travellers, so I don't know how price came into this discussion. Would you say then Europe is not good for 'beginner' travellers because of the expense? Usually developed/expensive places are easier to travel around. It's like comparing Germany to Bangladesh in ease of travel.

If you are traveling to Europe and you are on a limited budget, than you should travel to a country like Bulgaria for example.
