Burma/Myanmar. The whole country is amazing, but the most accessible wow spots are Bagan and Inle Lake. if you have the time to get to Mrauk U that's a wow as well. Photos at www.marlandc.com There are two years of photos, 2009 and 2011. We are seriously considering a return trip fro 2015.

It's hard to say what will 'wow' you without more information. That which blows one person away, might bore another to tears. What type of experiences are you seeking?

Ellen, it seems to me useful answers are dependent on knowing where you've already been. Please advise.

You have managed to see a goodly portion of SE Asia.

Some of the places I've enjoyed most in SE Asia (in addition to Burma - do go back and see more than Yangon - include Java, Indonesia; Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia; Malaysian Borneo and Sri Lanka. We also had an incredible trip to Sikkim. All of those trips on on the photo site linked in my earlier response. The photos may give you a sense of whether any of these places are for you.

Penang and Cameron Highlands make a nice combination. And I agree with the rest that Kathie mentions. Sri Lanka is the one I haven't been to yet but it's my primary destination for the next trip to Asia.

Hoi An-Viet Nam is a good choice

We really enjoyed Sapa about 5 years ago.

Fantastic scenery and views can be a bit weather dependant (fog) but the gentle trek through the countryside was great. At the very least the hill tribe women provide a colourful feast for the eyes. We also had some of the best food here, chicken spring rolls which I still have not been able to equal, ditto for hot pot.

You could combine with Hoi An which is quite charming.
Also consider a night on Halong Bay, ethereal scenery, and we had very good seafood meals on our junk.

I knew I forgot something. We did the Halong bay over night. Way to long of a drive for one night on the junk.Beautiful though. We were lucky our junk was the only boat on the bay. Very cold that week in Hanoi.
