Places to visit in Asia

Post by JameyoftheMegacosmos on Wed 2 Nov 2011 - 21:23

This summer, I'm thinking of planning a trip to Asia. I have a few countries that I may visit such as Japan, Taiwan, China, Korea, and maybe Vietnam.

If there is anything like any tourist attractions that should visit in these countries, please notify me. I like to know what's out there.

I'm sure each of those places has its charms. How, if I may ask, do you plan to do your traveling? It sounds like a very expensive trip.

Thanks for suggesting me these. I'll put them on a list so I can decide which ones I'd want to go to. Unlikely I may visit them all.

What do you mean when you ask that? I know that it is very epensive and I'm actually going to go with my dad.

Also, I was wondering that if I go to Japan in the summer, there would be any anime events or attractions during that time. Where and what are things that I may like there when it comes to anime?

I mean the amount of available resources () often has a great influence over the trip. In Europe, Youth Hostels are very popular & inexpensive. Students also qualify for cut-rate rail passes and museum tickets. I'm sure there are such deals to be found in Asia as well.

I only made it to Tokyo when we did Japan, spent a week there (only problem with booking travel on a whim is that you run out of money quickly... having not properly saved before hand) and could easily have taken another.

Anime wise, I'll back Nacht here that the Ghibli museum is defs worth a look... though you need to book beforehand. It's also in a rather nice bit of parkland. Also, if you're chasing Anime then you'll want to visit Akihabra... which was fascinating in a sort of "Ok, kinda scared now"/geek-tastic way. I suppose you could try and line your travel up with summer Comiket as well. Personally though I like Tokyo In Winter... but I'm a cold weather person.

Oh yeah: Japanese Christmas = awesome.

If you are visiting Korea, go Jeju Island . One of finest place for vacation in Asia. Also the capital of Korea, Seoul is pretty good for vacation too. Long stream that through middle of the city, mountain Book Han San, etc... are fine places for foreign tourists.Smile
