I think Asia, specifically Southeast Asia, is my favourite part of the world.  I just feel good there.  So, if you haven’t been, plan a trip – NOW!  And if you have been, please share your recommendations with me, because I will be back again soon.

General articles on Asia

  • With its predominantly Buddhist and Muslim religions, Southeast Asia has a few cultural practices and etiquette rules different than western countries. For A World To Travel, here are my 7 easy ways to travel respectfully in Southeast Asia, which help protect the culture, economy, and help make your stay more pleasant for everyone. I share tips on what to wear too.

    • Thanks — I would love to see Nepal one day. I’ve heard wonderful things about the country (though I’d skip Everest … I think it sees enough traffic)
