We Bugboggers have visited most of these Asian countries and feel like forcing our opinions on you, the helpless reader, about the most interesting places we’ve seen in Asia. Unfortunately, as it happens, some of these countries are less safe than they were a few years ago so don’t just jump on the nearest plane. Some research is worthwhile.
Also, it should be mentioned that we happen to like experiencing bizarre cultures and customs, not lying senseless on a beach, so Papua New Guinea, Myanmar and Nepal fit the bill perfectly for us, at the time.
Yemen is definitely off the safe visit list now thanks to military intervention by Saudi Arabia, while PNG men, always ready for a fight, have become erratic and unpredictable in their ways of late – tho’ to tell the truth we did have a little threatening axe waving during our trip there. However, if you’re keen on bizarre lifestyles check on the current situation with a travel agent.
