Have you been to any Asian countries? Do you want to go to any? Discuss here.

I've been to Philippines and Japan(stop over). I was at Nagoya airport for bout 3hrs and I saw the mountains filled with snow. The airport was actually in an island by itself. And it was awesome seeing a new, different language.

I wanna go to Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo, Boracay, Baguio, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, and wherever something is interesting.

But if that doesn't count then no...

Eh... lol Hawaii is right in between. Sure w/e

Ah really? It also has the biggest Filipino population I think; the Governor was even one.

You should really go to an Asian country, cause you're even Chinese-Japanese! two nationed heritage people must go at some point in their lives, and frequently.

I've been around the Middle East, which is technically Asia, but I've never gotten to go to an East Asian country. Out of all the places I'd like to visit Japan and Hong Kong are way up on my list. My dad's lucky, he gets to go to Japan for 4 weeks a year, never takes me Crying or Very sad

wow what does your dad do, just wondering? And where in the Middle East? I have a uncle or so in Saudi Arabia. That region is interesting, because it's totally different from East Asia.

My dad goes on tour around Japan each year with a jazz band.

In the Mid East we go to Lebanon fairly often (because of family there), and I've been to Jordan and Syria.

I assume when you mentioned religion you meant Islam. Yeah it's completely different from eastern religions, (much close to Christianity and Judaism because they are all based from the same prophet) I tend to like the ideology of eastern religions more though, specifically Buddhism.

ah that's interesting. How is it in Lebanon there, are there any tensions in there because of other countries, Iran I think or Israel?

What?? I meant region not religion, if that's what you thought.

Oh. My mistake, i misread region for religion.

I love to go to Lebanon but we haven't been in four years since tensions in the area have really gotten bad. A couple summers ago there were some really bad things going on with Israel and the Southern Lebanese border, now things within Lebanon are still out of hand.

Ah I see. So you say you're Muslim? Have you gone to Mecca, or somewhere where you make pilgrimage once in your life at least, yet?

No, actually my mother's family is Christian, but no one in my immediate family is very religious anyway. So no, I haven't done a pilgrimage.

Heh, no need to apologize, its my fault for misunderstanding that first "region" for "religion" and going on a tangent. My father was also raised Christian. However neither my mom, my dad or I, are religious.
