Here is a thought: If you visit one amazing country which borders another interesting nation then why not club the two together, especially if they offer different experiences. Two at the price of one (almost). It makes sense whichever way you look at it financially, time wise and convenience. These are ten countries across Asia and Europe which should be clubbed together for a wholesome travel experience.

Vietnam and Cambodia

It costs only US $10 (600 rupees) for an air conditioned bus to get from Vietnam to Cambodia.

Myanmar is today what Thailand was 25 years ago before Leonardo DiCaprio shot the Beach. It is of the beaten track, affordable and friendly.

Dubai and Oman

The four-five hour drive between these two destinations is excellent. Also, there are cheap flights from Dubai to Muscat like Emirates and Etihad.

After spending time in Dubai's sky scrappers, experience the spectacular landscapes of Oman and its cultural traditions which remain remarkably undiluted. It is the one place in Gulf to experience traditional Arabia.
