One of my favourite parts of the world is South East Asia. I find the countries in South East Asia very welcoming and friendly. And not to mention the amazing nature and food over there. As a vegetarian, its definitely a veggie-foodies heaven to indulge the different flavours Asian food have to offer. A truly backpackers heaven as it is easy, safe and cheap to travel around.
One of the most fascinating countries I have visit is Vietnam. The difference between South and North is huge. While the South is warm and welcoming, the North seems to still be in the post-communism position. But overall the Vietnamese people are so kind and it is an amazing country to explore.
