8 best places to visit in Asia

1. Japan

One of the most popular suggestions was Japan. One user said: “Japan is the easy choice here. If money isn’t an issue, then go; it’s certainly the most unique place in the world, coming from an EU/US perspective. I did a month in 2015, and it was one of the best trips of my life.”

2. Vietnam

One traveler, who has moved to Vietnam permanently, suggested it was the best place to explore in Asia. They said: “I really love the north of Vietnam. You can go to the mountains in Sapa and check out Ha Long Bay—it’s super beautiful. I’ve lived in Hanoi for almost a decade now; it’s one of the most unique cities I’ve been to.”

3. South Korea

One person said that if your budget is big enough, then a tour around South Korea is unrivalled. They said: “South Korea has a few big cities (Seoul and Busan) and a ton of natural parks. It also has no shortage of history and culture.”
