I have been to all those countries except Cambodia. Though it is Thailand that I have spent most of my time. 2006 went to Phuket.It is a must that you go to Phi-phi Island from here.There are a lot of tour that you can join ask your hotel about this. We have stayed in Burasari hotel. very nice hotel. For honeymooners there are rooms that direcly link to the pool. There is also Elephant tour where you will ride the elephant going up the mountain. this is real fun.from Phuket you can go directly via plane to Koh Samui. then back to Bangkok. if you will go down to the new airport you can also have a side trip to Pattaya. there are shuttle buses from the airport that will take you to the bus station . from there you can take a bus going to Pattaya. around 1- 1 1/2 hours travel depending on the traffic. Pattaya is very touristy but you can enjoy it even if you only have a day. just rent a hut in front of the beach for 50 baht the whole day and you can enjoy your cold coconut juice form there. you can also order your food from them and the best thing is you can have your massage without you leaving the umbrella hut. there is also paragliding for 400 baht. very reasonable compared to other countries. In China, must sees are the forbidden city and the great wall. make sure you have very comfortable shoes.. otherwise you will not last a day as this places are enormous. visit the pearl building..lots of stuff to buy.. make sure you barter hard... don't leave Beijing without trying a Pecking duck dinner... Vietnnam.. just stayed for one day.. just enjoyed their soup noodles tremendously.. must try... South Korea.. same just stayed for one day.. but good shopping on leather goods .. leather jackets.. and must try traditional bulgogi for food...hope i was able to give info to you... cheers!

I have been to Japan, Tokyo the city is nice the only problem there is the sign boards no English only Japanese characters. Best best way of getting around the city is using the yurikomome rail or the JR line from Tokyo central going out of the city get the shingkan sen rail people don’t speak English there so you may need to carry a Japanese English dictionary.
