1. Vietnam Coast to Thailand
The last time I headed out to Southeast Asia I traveled to the Philippines and visited some beautiful beaches. Well, this time I want to see more of those beautiful beaches in places that are just becoming "hot" destinations.
From Ha Long Bay down to Phuket, these two countries hold some of the most stunning coastlines in the world.
Expensive plane flights are greeted by dirt cheap prices in these two emerging countries and they are drawing hoards of visitors during these tough economic times.
Also lets not forget the food. The flavors of unlimited bounties of the freshest produce explode in your mouth with the balance of sweet, salty, spicy, soft and crunchy that is unique to this region of the world.
2. South America: From Santiago to Rio
I've been planning this trip for awhile. This trip will span almost 3 weeks and traverse across the South American continent. The trip would start with visiting the wineries and vineyards between Santiago, Chile and Mendoza, Argentina.
From Mendoza, we head to the capital of Buenos Aires. A few nights of partying within BA's nightclubs should be an awesome experience. Argentina has a wealth of some of the most attractive people in the world, and it seems BA is the bank vault to all that sexiness.
From BA, on to Uruguay to the "French Riviera of the Southern Hemisphere": Punta del Este. Basically lounging out on the beach is the culture here. Nothing like fun in the sun, a cold beer or Rose', or some mate' on beach; life doesn't get much better than this.
After much sun on the beach, its time to head inland and visit one of the most stunning natural sites on earth, Iguazu Falls. These falls make Niagara look like a faucet leak.
Now so close to the border of Brazil, it would be a shame not to cross over and traverse the several hour trip up to Sao Paulo. During the stay in Sao Paulo, one can delight in the festive shopping scene in this Metropolis and dine on some outstanding sushi since this is the home to the largest Japanese population outside of Japan.
The trip now ends in a several day stay in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Words cannot describe the beauty of this destination with its famed beaches and beach goers. "Can you handle the floss!" will be the theme on the beach while downing Skol and Caipirinha's until a noon drunken coma emerges.
Once one has drank too much and overly fantasized about the local women then it's time to get forgiven for your sins with a trip to see "Christ the Redeemer" upon the top of Corcovado Mountain.
