Cambodia. Spent 3 weeks there last year. Lovely people, not very developed yet, tons of culture, nice weather. Job done.
Cambodia is one of my favourite countries and the people are indeed some of the friendliest, you can't help but love the country and the people, especially given their recent past.
It's probably a good bet if you've only got a week. You can pack in a load of culture and there's beaches too in places such as Sihanoukville. The food is unbelievable too! However, a week might not be long enough to visit the killing fields + S21 and recover from that experience to truly relax.
Vietnam is like a less remote version of Cambodia, but probably more picturesque, especially Halong bay, Mekong Delta and the jungle in the north near Sapa, but you'd struggle in a week.
I would have said China if you had more time.
Myanmar would be near the top of my list of places I've not been in that area. Japan too, but I gather it's a tad expensive!
