Love it! Honestly, I also had no real desire to visit Asia until I started thinking about moving to South Korea after university. And, I completely agree that the food is enough of an incentive in itself. Now, I’m in Canada and I can’t wait to go back!

Wow, South Korea would be a big move. I’ve heard so many good things about Korea — food, shopping, safety, hiking — but it is so cold in the winter. You have to be a brave soul!

I currently live in Japan and I love love love Asia so much. I had my first trip to SE Asia a week ago, which made me love Asia even more. The shopping and food alone could keep me here forever, but I love everything else that comes with living on this side of the world.

Where did you go in SE Asia? It’s a region I want to explore even more.

I went to Cambodia. I spend about 4 days in Phnom Penh and 4 days in Siem Reap.

Love this article! I completely agree. I’ve visited India and China but I’d love to get over to Singapore and Vietnam. I hear I can have a great custom suit made in Vietnam so that would be pretty fab! As a global gal, I’m really liking your blog! <3 http://www.InteriorsbyJacquin.blogspot.com

Thanks, Jacquin! What places do you recommend in India and China? And yes, I highly recommend Singapore!

I would definitely suggest Jaipur and North India in general for India. You can still see a lot of traditional culture there and it’s so colorful! As for China, the Great Wall of China is a must. I went during winter and everything was snow capped. Made for amazing photos even though it was freezing. Shanghai has great shopping and the weather is a bit milder there. Happy New Year!

I actually like going to snowy places now that I live in perpetual humidity on Guam. The Great Wall during winter sounds lovely!

I live in China now and I love it! I’ve visited Japan and Kyoto is wonderful. This month I am headed to Cambodia and I will be in Bali in June. I love Asia! There is so much history and East meets West everywhere. Plus the food is like no where else!

Bali is one of my favorite places in the world. What are you doing in China?

I have totally missed out of Asia so far, I hope to change that soon 🙂 I would love to go to some place in Vietnam, but India sounds tempting as well.


I hope your travel wishes come true in 2015!

My dad visited China four years ago, and I remember being in awe at the pictures he took there. Asia has a lot to offer for the traveler, you just have to reach out of your comfort zone a bit.

I agree on that!

All great reasons listed! I went to Asia for the first time last April and I can’t wait to visit another part of Asia in March. So many beautiful destinations and full of history. I am also a huge fan of the shopping and food 🙂


Cool. Where did you visit and where are you going next?

South Korea and I’ll be visiting Turkey this year (both the Europe and Asia side). I really loved South Korea, good memories! 🙂

AH! I’ve never been! Maybe my next long trip should be somewhere in Asia. It seems like there are lots of great destinations I’d like to check out.

To be honest, I’d love to be transferred to Hong Kong or Singapore with my company and then use that as a home base for going elsewhere! If that does happen it won’t be for a while, but it’d be awesome if it did.

I’d recommend Singapore! It’s much cleaner and less populated than Hong Kong. Such a modern city!
