Asian holiday destination number 1, Thailand has it all. From ancient culture to raving full-moon beach-parties. And, for a country as developed as it is, it´s surprisingly affordable.

Laos or Lao PDR
Laos used to be the largest kingdom in South East Asia, known as Lan Xang Hom Khao (Kingdom of a Million Elephants Under the White Parasol).
Its official tourism slogan is “Simply Beautiful” and this fits. Almost half the population is indigenous hill tribe such as Hmong and Khmer, which makes for colorful traditional dress.
