Of those, I really like Georgia. Batumi over Tblisi. Bishkek is interesting: less former-Soviet feeling than Almaty or Ashgabat.

Bishkek has a much more comfortable, gentle feel to it, and almost seems pre-Soviet. Georgia has more rough edges. Taxi drivers in Bishkek are cool laid back helpful friendly guys, but in Georgia they are thieves and thugs -- in both cases, to an extreme. I even saw a fist fight in the street between a Tbilisi cab driver and a passenger. Food is better in Georgia, in fact, fantastic. Tbilisi borders on the third world sense of lots of annoying gratuitous noise, and will probably get worse as traffic thickens.

Crossing the Kazakh/Kyrgyz border formalities is something like running with the bulls in Pamplona.

It would be so interesting!

When I talk about exotic I am not thinking about places like Europe or Cancun. But instead, to remote places in countries like Burma, Morocco, Laos, India, Nepal, etc. Not the big cities but places way off the beaten path.

Have you seen these super exotic places and after seeing them as interesting and exciting in actuality than dreaming about visiting them?
I like a good mix of super exotic, exotic, and travel within the USA. A good variety.
