Sucks you can't go from Bhutan into Tibet, although if one is adventurous enough... Regardless, I was in the south. You won't be disappointed, even if you have to find another way into China.

Kashmir bus: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...toryId=4580366 and others. It's one of the instigators spurring me to make the trip.

Go to Asia

It is changing so fast that this may be your last opportunity to see it before there is a MacDonalds on every street corner.

I second that recommendation. It’s cheap, GREAT food, GREAT leather goods, and GREAT women, what’s not to like? Did I mention that it’s GREAT? Jon.

I second the recommendations for Asia, especially China (Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Tibet).

China, then Mongolia, before it becomes overrun with tourists...

-I didn't see it mentioned but Africa is definetly an amazing experience. I've only been to Tanzania but the country and people are beautiful. Just avoid the Northeast part of the country, not the safest at the moment.

unless you are a pretty seasoned traveler, or a pretty tough individual, I would not suggest a 6 month trip to africa.

Did Dusty say 6 months? Oh I was thinking more along the lines of 1-2 months. That's the typical time period I think of when I think "college backpacking trip."

I would say Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan and other former Soviet states where there is a kitschy poignancy extant in those nations.

I might make an exception. There are lots of Asian countries I'd love to see, especially Vietnam and Japan (though Japan might be a bit out of my price range).

Thanks for all the suggestions; keep them coming. I'd never even considered some of the places mentioned. Buenos Aires sounds especially interesting.

EDIT: It definitely won't be a six-month trip.

Although all the others are all excellent suggestions, I think that there is a reason why Europe has been done to death.

When I finished highschool, I backpacked through western europe for 2 months. London, Amsterdam, Brugges, Paris, Barcelona, Rome, L'Aquila, Venice, Neuchatel
and it was absolutely amazing. I've done Western Europe, Asia (China, Korea, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia), North America (I'm from Canada) and I am also graduating from University in about a week.

So, I'm going BACK to western europe, and SPECIFICALLY avoiding touristy things (which is quite easy). This time its Barcelona, Milan, Dublin, London, and Paris.

If you've never been, I don't think the fact that lots of tourists go there should be a reason for you not to go. As long as you plan on seeing other things and not just the Eiffel tower and Westminster abbey, you can have an amazing experience, and I think everyone at some point should see all of that.
Its almost like saying you won't eat Filet Mignon because everyone loves it and eats/orders it all the time.

PLUS, I looked into Nepal, and flights there cost about 10x what they cost to get from North America to almost anywhere in Europe.
