For myself, to date, it is VIETNAM. Lovely place with friendly people, crazy history, great food and unique culture.
why is crazy history???
I voted for Vietnam. This country is wonderful place for toursits where you not only explore the nature with trekking to the moutain but also feel the high quality of service without paying too much.
I think Malasia,Tailand,singapore are best country to visit.
If you want to meet some really nice people then visit Japan
Late last year, I traveled to Thailand. I prefer the sea to the south of Thailand. Is very beautiful.

Myanmar is one of the most fascinating countries in the world and despite the bad press is safe, easy to get around by bus, the people are genuine and technology is at a minimum, which makes life more difficult for the people of Myanmar and extremely interesting for the independent traveler. Upon entry into Myanmar, at the airport in Yangon, $200 USD must be exchanged into government issued FEC currency, which can be exchanged in Yangon into the local currency called kyat (chat). Spend your kyat at locally owned restaurants, guest houses and bus trips so your money goes directly to the local people instead of to government owned or sponsored hotels, planes, trains etc. and you benefit the local people.
Take the bus from one town to the next during daylight hours so that you can see everything. Avoid long bus rides and the cramped conditions long bus rides entail. Be careful to drink only bottled water and be careful with the food you eat making sure any fried or stir fried food has been cooked in fresh cooking oil, be especially wary of food offered on long bus rides in the middle of the night. If you have any doubts at all don't eat it. Stay in smaller towns when possible and mix with the locals. Avoid participating in conversations about government politics or religion and instead learn what you can about the ancient ways of life of these industrious self-sufficient people and congratulate them for how well they are living in such an underdeveloped country.
Traveling to Myanmar is like stepping back in time perhaps 100 years so you have to expect things to not be as organized as they are elsewhere. Take your time, enjoy the ambience and soak up the hard work and perseverance these people put into their lives. Their are over 100 different ethnic groups in Myanmar and the people are friendly and unspoiled by modern life although their standard of living leaves much to be desired traveling throughout the country can be as interesting as it can get. Fly into Yangon from Bangkok, after exploring Yangon make Nyaung Shwe on Inle Lake, Mandalay and Bagan your headquarters for exploring the surrounding areas. Hire a taxi driver to take you out into the countryside and rent a bicycle whenever you can.
My all time favorite is Tibet (I have been there twice). Also love Bhutan, but it is very expensive. I spent a month in India last year, had a great time and barely scratched the surface. Hope to go back again in 2012. Especially loved Kerala, cruising on a rice barge. Thailand is beautiful, but Bangkok is very smoggy and traffic is ridiculous. Chiang Mai is a much less stressful and more pleasant city. Only spent three weeks on a whirlwind tour of China, would like to go back and spend some more time there. I am going to Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia in November and looking forward to it.
I suggest you to visit Indonesia. And in Indonesia, i suggest you to visit Bali and also Bandung. In Bali, you will see many tourist attractions such as traditional dances, beautiful beaches, romantic resorts, Bali spa, and more. In Bandung, you will find so many shopping areas with great price, cheap but with good quality. And how about the food? Very delicious.. I suggest you to eat Mie Bakso (meatball soup with noodles), Sate (grilled meat with peanut sauce), Nasi Goreng (fried rice), Nasi Padang, and more..

This is completely ridiculous!
Asia is the world's largest and most populous continent. It covers 30% of the Earth’s land area and hosts 60% of the world's population. Asia has 48 countries. All according to Wikipedia.
The continent stretches from Turkey in the west to Japan in the east, from Indonesia in the south to Russian Siberia in the north.
How on earth (!) could you ask for a single answer to such a question? But then you are Indian yourself and may be wishing that your question triggered the right answer?
Asia is a lifetime of experiences. Asia has all you ever want to look for. Whatever your needs, whatever your interests. Whenever you go.

It's depended on your desire where you want to go but I suggest you that you must visit India because there are many famous places and its culture is world wide popular, I am sure about it, its culture will touch your heart.
