I've been to Thailand, China, Oman, and United Arab Emirates (yes, the last two are considered Asia)....I enjoyed all of them, but Thailand and UAE were my favorites. It was fantastic to see the Great Wall in China and spend the evening exploring Wangfujing Street, but Beijing was so crowded and felt overwhelming. Oman was expensive, albeit beautiful.

I've only ever been to India, but I've been there five times so it's my favorite.

Asia has alot to offer - it safe, has interesting history, good food, mostly friendly. Depends on what you are after.

However, if you like India you might want to try China. Make sure to go someplace besides the big cities.

What do you like to do when on vacation?

Local culture / shopping / museums / botanical gardens....?

If you need a 'healthcare tune-up' cheap and fast... Thailand has Hospital kiosks at the Bangkpok Airport. Europeans have been going there for 'repairs' for decades.

SUMMER in India!!!! USA Summer is not the time I like to go to Asia! For summer, I would stick with Nepal, and Mtns of China.

Singapore is very nice / ez, but expensive lodging. Their Botanical Gardens is on World Heritage listing, I was there yesterday and found several new things I hadn't seen in my previous visits.

Vietnam and Myanmar are worth a visit.

I've been to quite a few Asian countries, most recently Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar. I was particularly impressed with Myanmar. Yangon is a very good starting point, and where you would likely arrive. My G/F and I spent a day there, and several each in Mandalay and Bagan. My only regret is that we didn't allow enough time in Bagan. Another one of my favorites is Cambodia, specifically around Siem Reap/Angkor Wat area. Singapore is also great, though as mentioned above it is more expensive.

Japan and Turkey.

The rest doesn't really interest me, they are either **** poor (most of SE Asia, India etc.), awfully suppressing (Islamic countries, North Korea, China etc.), or boring(Hong Kong, Korea, and Singapore. Though it's not exactly fair as they all resemble to my own country in one way or another).

I would like to visit Angkor Wat at some point though, it seems really cool, and zen.

I dunno man "Asia" is a large area and lots of places in Asia are either close enough to the equator or south of it to where time of year is more about rainy season instead of temperature. Others have a mild climate where summer is a great time to visit.

Personally I like the rainy season in SE Asia, which should be cranking up in about another month. The rains are usually fairly predictable (afternoon) and it cools things down nicely. There are also far fewer tourists about so no need to worry about pre-booking lodging or travel, more of a buyer's market for everything. Same with Central America, give me rainy season any day.

Only negative for rainy season is more mozzies.
