Luang Prabang, Laos
Many travel writers, myself included, have pegged Luang Prabang as the most romantic town in Southeast Asia. A flurry of new boutique hotels and classy restaurants don’t detract from the languid charm of the old city. Don’t miss a day trip to Kuang Si waterfall, or a ferry ride across the Mekong to the village of Ban Xieng Mene.

Bagan, Myanmar
Not a typical destination, the ancient city of Bagan is like nothing I’ve seen before… ancient ruins of temples for as far as the eye can see.  Dirt roads with horse carts weave through the massive temple complex.  What’s so wonderful about this place is the ‘undiscovered’ feel of it.  It’s not ‘undiscovered’ but still, as a tourist, you’re free to roam the grounds wherever you like.  Free to climb in and upon most of the temples and play and explore and as the sun sets, grab a horse cart to take you home.  This place will blow you away, I promise.

Dili, East Timor
This charming, lazy little seaside city suddenly found itself taking the role of national capital when East Timor became the world's newest independent country in May 2002. The city lies on the northern coast of East Timor, squeezed along the narrow plains between the central mountains which run the length of the Timor and the Ombai Strait. Diving, whale-watching, trekking, biking, great scenery, stunning mountain driving and beautiful white-sand beaches. East Timor is one of the world's unsung tourism destinations.
