    Great video! However, it did make me think about how unwilling native anglophones are to learn other languages, they just expect the rest of the world to learn English.

    Really great list! I think other places that are the big cities of glitz and glam - Dubai (yes I know there is a whole other side to the UOI outside of Dubai), Singapore and Hong Kong but yeah not too much culture shock compared to many places. Each successful rich global city with different vibes (HK is EASILY my fave of the three though). TAIWAN is also good though not a lot of English out in the countryside and less English compared to many of these places. Very warm people though and very developed!

    I highly recommend to visit China since you are an experienced traveller. China Mainland is the Central Far East, China adapted a little of each culture from other Asian countries. There are many changes going on everyday in China, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. Most importantly, it’s very safe to travel in China. I’m sure you met many Chinese in your trips but you will see the “real Chinese” and experience differently.

    The question is difficult to answer without knowing where a person come from. It's pretty obvious that for a Frenchman (like myself), and especially if you don't speak a foreign language, the most accessible places will be Wallonia/Brussels in Belgium or French speaking Switzerland. For Germans, it will be Austria. Language is a huge part of the accessibility factor.
    Also, some countries are incredibly diverse and will have very accessible parts in them and more difficult ones. For instance, in Indonesia, for inexperienced travelers, Bali and Lombok are perfect destinations in the developing world because there are a lot of tourists there. Sumatra and Borneo, less so. Hell, there are even some places in Indonesia that could be dangerous (such as Aceh).
    On the whole, I would have to agree with most countries on the list though Chile and Argentina are also pretty doable destinations, even for someone with no traveling experience and so are Morocco and Tunisia. But I think the perfect destination for first time travelers will nearly always be the country right next to where you live.


    I’m Malaysian, thank you for positive comments. But I would like to propose Indonenesia, as our sister country has a lot to offer

    Now that you've been to India, and courtesy your vlog, I got to see many places in my own country for the first time; how would you recommend it to first time travellers? As for me, on my first solo travel, I want to explore my country first.. in all its length, width and depth!! It's so diverse, so culturally rich, and full of surprises.. so, before going out, I will take my time knowing India :)
    I've been following you from the past month, you are one high spirited traveller!

    Singapore is by far the easiest place for first timers. The country is confined to a single city but it has a real oriental feel and the official language of instruction is English. It has an excellent public transportation/Metro system which in my opinion is probably the easiest in the world to navigate. There are lot's of places to shop. It's quite expensive but you can buy snacks and drinks cheap enough if you find a supermarket and if your looking for cheaper options the mall in Johor Bahru Is just a quick trip across the border.

    All of these Southeast Asian Countries are still developing excpept Singapore. And for those people out there bashing SEA Countries (especially Philippines) Philippines is actually growing fast. Lmao i cant even say anything when a malaysian talk shit to Philippines cause Malaysia is still a Third World Country just like the other SEA Countries. And stop hating people cause hating wont help.

      why would you call someone working for another country a slave? like its a right thing, but its a no no. What are you 12 BC? And "FYI TOO" Philippines has the highest rate of Unemployement of SEA. Thats why many of Filipinos works abroad."FYI" we call them OFWS or known as "OVERSEAS FILIPINO WORKERS" "FYI". This is why Filipinos are hardworkers but the government is still trying to split or "corruption" is still relevant in the Philippines. WHy choose Malaysia? "FYI" There are only less OFWS in Malaysia. Most of the FIlipinos are in "UAE". ;)

    If you go to the Phils for the first time, if you need to stop over to Manila, I suggest dont book your hotel to old Manila instead book your hotel somewhere in Makati, Bonifacio Global City, or on new Manila bay area MOA area.Then go to Palawan, Cebu,Bohol Davao etc.Just avoid some areas in Mindanao like Sulu or Basilan.With present administration, its more safer to travel in the Phils.

From A to Z as in all the steps like how to get a passport, how to get a visa, what kind of visa to get. What flights and how to book it, what kinds f things you can not take with you to other countries. What things you shouldn't bother taking with you. What clothing to pack. You see where I'm going with this lol kind of travel for dummies lol.

But if you want adventure or a backpacker who love landscape, exotic beaches and want to try different modes of transportation, who love epic drone shots., then philippine is for you.., travelling around the philippines is the toughest thing in the world hahaha.,like what they always say " THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES IN THIS WORLD ARE THE TOUGHEST TO FIND." and always check the weather because,. typhoon in the phil. is different.,

    I guess that is from your own personal experience. I would add UAE, Jordan & Lebanon. English is easily spoken everywhere, tourism is their major contribution to their economy, good infrastructure, different landscapes across the areas, and very "easy to accommodate" kinda culture. tho it could be a bit expensive.

    • Vin Man
      Vin Man 2 years ago

      I spent almost a month vacation in Japan. Staying 2 weeks in Tokyo and another 2 weeks in Osaka, and honestly I will not recommend it as a first time travel destination UNLESS you have at least a basic or elementary level understanding of spoken Nihongo. 90% of the locals do not speak english and I ended up looking for other tourists to ask for directions. Their subway and train system is so complex it was confusing, the train stations were HUGE, and worse you cant ask anybody because they dont understand english or even if they did, they were so busy, or in a hurry to get someplace and making an effort to help you would be a waste of time. I used google maps and waze to walk around and used an app to help me understand the train system. Taking cabs was EXPENSIVE! (which is not surprising at all since their taxis was a Prius) ..

    • Gianna Giavelli
      Gianna Giavelli 2 years ago

      Japan can have NO ENGLISH. Even taking a train can be tough, matching Kanji, station manager cant help you because he can't speak english, cab driver cant speak english. BUT I'm sure if you have a good map and take you time, plan your train travel, learn the names and kanji, it would be fine. Of course, if you get out of Tokyo and hit Kyoto it will be much less stressful and crazy. Osaka is the foodie capital and a big city but not so nuts as tokyo. tokyo is totally insane BUT they have many sections closed to cars so you can walk and shop but I think the places people go like harajuku still have a lot of traffic. the traffic in tokyo is dealable except the subways where its gross.

    Well, the first time I ever travelled outside of Germany and Turkey would probably be England but that was a school trip.
    The first time I ever travelled on my own plus moved to a whole new place on my own was China. It was actually fine. I didn't have culture shock because I realized that it was very similar to the culture in Turkey :'D But I think for many people China can be a challenge
