“Travel sparks our imagination, feeds our curiosity and reminds us how much we all have in common” – Deborah Lloyd
I have a revelation to make. I only got my 1stpassport 7 yrs. ago when I was in my late 20s so that means I ventured into wandering around the world pretty late because I wanted to tick off from my bucket list most of the islands and places in the Philippines 1st; before traveling outside my country.
Just after visiting only 2 Asian countries (Malaysia and Singapore) in 2011, I was lucky enough to go to the US twice the following year (the 1st one was for work travel). Most recently, I went to Europe for the 1sttime and it was indeed a great experience.
I still want to go back to Europe maybe 2 to 3 more times in my lifetime and the US will always be a good place for vacation but if you want to be a little bit practical but still want to travel overseas, Asia does not lack variety and must-see places.
Definitely, there are a lot more than 11 cities worth a visit but this is by far my favorites. I initially wanted to list down only 10 but it took me a while to choose which 1 to bump off so just picking 11 made it a lot easier.
Certainly, this is neither a definitive ranking of the most beautiful nor the most well developed Asian destination but I have my personal reasons why and you don’t have to agree with my list. Not enough time in one blog to explain in detail but here it goes.
