Parts of me are in all 3.
can you explain your experiences to me..which did you prefer..food etc. i heard in thailand food is not that plentifull in most areas off of the main roads..im not so sure if i want too do that..and also..evewn though i could kill somebody with my bare hands..the average person..safety could be an issue there..as i expressed ..my bride is a rock solid blonde.i cant be tossing my eyes over my shoulders morning noon and night..

I have been to Thailand, and it was pretty good. I only stayed in Bangkok so my experiences might not be as good as others. I do my parents go to Thailand almost every year, so that might help you. Some very beautiful places, good food and it is relatively cheap. My only negative was that it felt quite sleazy

I've been to Thailand and loved it. I've also been to the Philippines, Japan and Korea and have never felt unsafe in any of those places.

However, I don't do the ugly American attitude like so many others due and based on the bolded statement, you might have a problem anywhere you go with that attitude.

Phukett is a resort area in Thailand and it is a fantastic place to go -- Bangkok is also nice but a little sleezier --

sadly,Phuket is over run with tourists. I really like Palawan and Dumaguete area in the Phils. If you REALLY want to get away, try Palau, about 500 mi. east of the Phils.

I will be better able to tell you in detail of my experience in the Phill. if you provide photographic proof of said brides rock solidness

Never been to the Congo, but I was 10-20 miles south and ummm Africa is a very dirty place around there. There's no filtration system so 9/10 that water it very hazardous meanign animals or ppl may die in it and itll be hazardous. (Not saying youre going to drink the water lol )Also I hope you find a good interpreter cause most dont understand english whatsoever and as far as food goes it wont be exotic and tasty food I assure you.All food around there is imported and not the best stuff. I suggest thailand as I want to go there and spend a month. South America, Australia, E. European countries are all good as well.
