A giant question for a giant continent: one month in Asia - where to begin?

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

The world is a big place and there are so many parts I want to see, but narrowing it down is a challenge. I am looking to plan a trip for myself for the month of November. The little bit of narrowing down I've done is to choose Asia. Not much help, I know.

A little about me and my travel MO:
*34 year old, petite woman; will be travelling solo
*love art, culture, food - want to experience life of the locals when I travel
*don't speak any Asian languages and am a little nervous about navigating
*would like to visit places of natural beauty and other sacred spaces - quiet time to photograph and meditate
*am self-employed so budget is a real consideration
*have extreme fear of tarantulas
*prefer to be warm over cold

I would love to go to India. But I also feel drawn to parts of Thailand. Turkey. Macau. And.. and.. and...

So what I really need is a way in.. someplace to start. I know the question is a bit open, but hopefully having some sense of my travel likes will inspire you to share some of your favourites from this part of the world. (Or should I go to Australia, or South America... See? I need help.)

Thanks, everybody.
