comment Should I book my train connections in advance in China?
Don't you need to list your accommodation for the entire trip when you apply for your Chinese visa. Every time I've gone to china i've had to put details about where I'm staying and for how long on the Visa application. Having your accommodation booked in advance makes this a whole lot easier. You can book cheap accommodation and then cancel it once your visa is approved, but what's the point. If you're booking accommodation you might as well book somewhere you actually want to stay.

comment Does a check in agent have the right to ask me to open my bag?
As a general rule, if you're not happy about the airline knowing that an item is in your bag, you probably shouldn't be packing it in the first place.

comment Is lack of toilet paper a common occurrence in Japan?
I've been to Japan several times and I've never had an issue with toilets not having toilet paper. That said I only ever use the Western style toilets (Not the squat toilets). It's usually a good idea to carry a pack of tissues or wet wipes with you anyway when travelling.

comment Is it possible to travel through Burma (Myanmar), entering at one border crossing and exiting at another?
Apparently it's become a lot easier to go in and out of Burma by land, since 2013. Check out the Wikitravel link in my answer for more detailed information (it's too long to copy and paste into a comment).

comment What is the LEAST visited country by tourists?
NK gets quite a few tourists. When i went there the flight was full of tourists (only about 8 actual north Koreans on the full flight). While there is only 1 Tour company in North Korea it's role is as a liaison with foreign tour companies running trips. You wouldn't book a visit directly with the KITC (Korea International Travel Company).
