Any clues as to which direction/continents you are thinking of?
Or is it a whole World request?

Try: Travel advice by country (which took me less than 30 seconds to find using Google, probably less time than you spent typing your post).

If that's not what you're looking for, well, my condolences. You could buy a guidebook to whatever area you're thinking of visiting....or maybe someone's assembled such a list for you somewhere. But I'd not trust it, myself--too much changes too often, and such lists are often wrong.

I usually use Wikitravel for a quick check, as they have a good visa section for each country. But once you decide on a route, you should go to each country Foreign Ministry website to validate info, as it is changing often. You can also check by calling the different embassies in your home country.

You cannot get any further east in mainland Asia than the Pacific ports of Magadan, Vanino or Vladivostock.

For these you only need one Visa.

Russia.
It's easy to forget that two thirds of that country is in Asia and that it extends further east than anywhere else in Asia other than by sea to a few mid-Pacific islands.

It's visa free EU up to the Russian road borders in Latvia or Estonia.
Russian Visas must be obtained beforehand (ie. not at border) and unless you have contacts within Russia who can/will issue Letters of Invitation, it would be best to go through a specialist Visa Agency. Other threads give advice and all details but also look on Russian Embassy London website.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
