Where to go in Asia?

Jump to last reply

I know this is very, very general, but we have the opportunity to visit Asia early next year and want to decide where to go. We are a couple (30 and 28), living in the UK. My only experience of Asia has been visiting South Korea, my partner has been to South Korea, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. We are keen to go somewhere different and have up to about 2 weeks to do it.

We were originally thinking of Beijing + the Great Wall - I posted about that earlier this year, but we were living in Spain at the time and the visa process was too messy. Now we're back in London, the visa process is much easier and flights pretty cheap and plentiful too. The issue now is that I'm reading about the pollution levels in Beijing and it's worrying me - my partner suffers from asthma and I have lots of allergies. Perhaps it isn't a good idea?

Japan has always been a dream for both of us and we are seriously considering finally going there. It seems quite a bit more expensive than China, though (we're on a pretty tight budget), but then we'd save around £200 on visas. Nepal is also somewhere we'd love to visit, but the dangerous (?) flight to Kathmandu is putting us off a little (I seem to hear about plane crashes there a lot).

Any ideas? Open to all suggestions!
