I can visit any country, but do not have a strong interest in any at this time.

I guess I would like to visit Australia the most, at present.
If it has to be in Asia, I will pick Thailand.

Eastern Indonesia is a fascinating region for those who like to get off the beaten track.

Not to mention the island of New Guinea, which include's Puncak Jaya, at over 5,000 metres, which is topped with glaciers, and is the highest peak in SE Asia apart from Burma.

It would be cool to see the dragons there. I wonder how difficult it is to visit Irian Jaya? I'd like to visit Papua New Guinea one day.

Yes, PNG is on our doorstep yet few visit it. It was a 'colony' of Australia for quite a few years.

My friend (he was Malaysian, but has since become an Aussie national) was stationed in Jayapura, Indonesian Papua by his firm for a few months. Life there was pretty laid back, with a mix of urban life and some island wilderness a stone's throw away.
