Asia – The Myth-Intrigue and Fears
Asia even today has its mega attractions, that brings foreign interests in tourism and business is becoming a play ground for the opportunists, intrepid curious the retired and ready, the ”I have had enough of Europe and Americas” type, this plethora of new found interests, intrigue and passion driven individuals are swarming Pan Asia, from Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam,Thailand, Korea, Japan, Indonesia, China, Hong Kong, Philippines and others are now major destinations for just about anyone seeking ”DIFFERENT” to the norm.
As I Came to Appreciate many years later and my first introduction to Asia i was forever caught in the web of intrigue speculation and lifestyle expectations, the downright fears of something that was alien to me, my background and foremost the language barriers i perceived to being a huge obstacle taking this journey.!
My Advice on Planning Your Trip
The important and crucial thoughts that i believe one should ask themselves are:
Options: are you there just to party? what do you hope to find and feel good about? is this a good reason to improve your life or its value? are you going with a predetermined mindset? is this an adventure in the hope to find a new life or just an experience from the adventure?
I Had Many Reasons and predominantly it came down to I wasn’t happy to continue then present course life and my country. I wanted to break the chains and mold that every peer had advised not a good one!
My Question: HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVEN’T EXPERIENCED YOURSELF?
As You Can Imagine it was all based on word of mouth, was research and information about the demographics. It was plain narrow mindedness and fear or the unknown to take that essential step that will plunge you into Newness, struggle a little maybe even accept that all isn’t going as we expect, conviction in other words.
I Don’t Criticize or hold this as a bad thing on anyone, however, when it comes to advising someone about your unfounded, unsubstantiated and probably your own personal fears, then yep it stinks!
Choosing the Country:
The Place Best Suited to your expectations ”Lets be honest everyone has expectations right”?
So i expect you would have done some researching, getting some idea of what you want, your specific needs and price you are prepared to pay to have access and comfort and activities.
Short LIST: Your Choices:
Did You Make a Short List of maybe 3 destinations, what did you base your most primary expectations on? luxury, access to local culture features, personal agendas,, family related facilities? was this a holiday, temporary or permanent move decision?
Pricing and Decision Making:
All In All Pricing is the immediate factor, whether you seek a holiday of activities, relaxation or sight seeing, more over if you are going with the intention of long term living. daily expenditure, entry prices to attractions, localize travel and so forth
