Asia is a great place to travel and some countries there are great bargains to travel to. I have been to Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong. I found the Maldives really expensive though. I would love to go island hopping and snorkeling in the Philippines and in Thailand. It would be great if I could see the Taj Mahal in India and the Great Wall in China. I would like to go to Vietnam and to Cambodia. Have you been to Asia? If so where? If not where in Asia would go like to go?

hi,maxi! Asia is really a great place to travel because there are so many tourist sites to cisit in Asia...if u want to know asian culture, i think China , India and Japan are the countries u can't miss..my country China is a great place of tourists with a long history of 5,000 years and i believe u get to know what China is like only if u come to visit by yourself..Great Wall is a symbol of China though ther are many more places worth of looking around..

I live in Asia specifically in The Philippines. Maybe you should come and pay a visit here. Philippines is a nice place with lots of friendly people willing to lend you a and of something goes wrong. It's pretty safe too! I'm not sure but i think we have at least three entries for the new wonders of the world.

i live in singapore, and i must say, with all the rising prices of food and the cost of living in asia, asian countries are still typically much more affordable than many other countries in europe or the americas. furthermore, i would say that asia is rich in culture and diverse in travel destinations. it really has a bit of everything for everyone, be it food, laidback beaches, pubs and bars, shopping, high-tech cities, rural villages, cultural landmarks, religious landmarks...the list goes on!

Try Sri Lanka. Its a small Island South of India - 250,000 sq.miles - rich with culture, beautiful beaches, spectacular scenery, lakes, rivers, mountains, rain-forest, Tea plantations, wild life parks with loads of animals including elephant, bear and leopard, tropical birds, ancient historical sites dating back over 2000 years, adventure sports such as hiking trekking, white water rafting, mountain climbing, mountain-biking, great food, best Tea in the world and so much more. But the thing that will impress you most is the friendly attitude and hospitality of the people who always wear a big smile on their faces even though they may be facing some economical hardships. The accommodation is amazing and spread throughout the country - from Star class hotels to budget type motels. You can get some info by Googling "Sri Lanka Tourism" or "Sri Lanka Tourist Hotels" and through Lonely Planet. I have traveled widely in this beautiful country and for anyone who wants to travel there, it wil be my pleasure to give you some advise and tips and also contacts for arranging a great stay there.
