As far as I understand, I'm supposed to put down a choice of five countries. I've decided on four (Pakistan, India, UAE, Malaysia), but I'm really unsure on my fifth choice.
Note: I'll only end up in one of these.
Which country should I choose?

Qatar is mostly because I'd love to go shopping there and it's got good and cheap flight routes for weekend/week trips to all sorts of cool places. I've got the same reasons for UAE, really, and it seems like a lovely enough place.
Jordan... aah. It was my second choice of country to go to university after Pakistan. (I have no idea how I ended up in Scotland instead.) Plus from what I gather it's a magical place with lovely weather, lots of internationals and awesome landscapes. And kind of cheap. I know a few people who are in love with it.
Bangladesh is mostly because it's cheap, really close to other cool places and I've also got contacts in the city where they do exchange programmes, so that'd make things far easier. Plus, my Bengali is far better than my Arabic. It's still crappy, but my Arabic is pretty much limited to talking about religion.
The fourth option is "somewhere between Western Europe and Southeast Asia", pretty much - if it's one of the 4 options I've already decided on, that leaves one open again; if it's the UK, I don't know what that'd mean for my choice. Could be Iraq, although that's unlikely.
