Out of places I've already been.

1. Thailand- best beaches, good food, great capital, very diverse, you've got mountains, cities, beaches & national parks.

2. Malaysia- I only made a flying visit, would love to go back & check all the places I missed & to return to the beautiful Perhentian Islands.

3. Laos- After exploring the North, I'd like to return to see the South.

Places I haven't been in Asia:

1. Sri Lanka, wildlife sounds amazing.
2. Myanmar, seems like a very interesting place & less developed.
3. China, always wanted to go to Hong Kong.

I will reccomend two.
Thailand:
It is the easiest to visit and get around. Great infrastructure and plenty to see; great beaches, heaps of islands for snorkeling & diving, trekking & hill tribes, ancient ruins, rock climbing, wild nightlife. There are plenty of travellers doing just what you are, so easy to hook up and travel with someone.

VietNam;
Trekking & hill tribes, beach cities & off shore islands, diving, secluded beaches if you want solitude, historic cities like Hue & Hoi An that are full of royal tombs & ruins, war era tours and museums, exciting cities of HaNoi and HCMC, mountains, trees and waterfalls in cool DaLat. VN has great variety at a very cheap price, hard to beat that in 2006.

Thailand: Great Beaches, parties and bars on the beach, amazing food, always a great buzz and meeting so many travellers...
Laos: So chilled, fab scenery.....not touristy at all
Cambodia: People are amazing, ......loved Siem Reap, though travelling by road is an experience

Asia is so special....

For the latter:

1. Angkor Wat
2. Kolkata
3. Macao
4. Manilla

because:

1. Sic transit gloria mundi
2. Mother Goddess Kali
3. Portugal was the only colonial power not completely despicable
4. Christian country in Asia sounds kinky

Next on my list for places I haven't been:
Japan - Just somewhere I've wanted to go all my life.
Nepal - I love the mountains
Mongolia - Seems like the emptiest country in the world which would be cool
Tibet (sorry, just couldn't leave it at only three)- Same reason as Nepal, I love the moutains

3 places I will defiently return to:
China
India
Vietnam
And I'm sure I'll always go back to Thailand because it's my idea of a perfect travel destination, even though it's not nessesarily my favortie country.
