Is One Region of Amarr Space Better than Another?

As the title suggests, I'm a new explorer, and I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on whether one region of Amarr space trumps another, and why. Is one region less populated? does it have more low-sec systems? etc.

Some random tips:

List of regions & their NPCs w/ maps: http://evemaps.dotlan.net/region

Amarr has both Blood Raider and Sansha regions, Sansha being Derelik, Devoid, Domain and (d)Tash-Murkon. Blood are the rest. I found the Blood Raider sites annoying and the occassional implant drop worthless, whereas Sansha dropped good ones. If you're doing low-sec sites, Minor Blood Annex hurts a lot and odds are you'll die if you're not prepared.

Devoid was my favourite region because it's (relatively) easy to visit systems in a row without having to fly through the same system twice. It also has a high-sec island seperated by low-sec that's usually quiet(er).

I also had good luck in Tash-Murkon, it has some dead end systems that are quiet (but then again, all the explorers flock to dead end systems which renders that point moot...)

If you decide to go to Aridia region, Vehan is usually camped, and Hier is (almost) always camped, so be careful. Rest of the region was quiet the last few times I was there. Entering the region via Genesis is usually a beter idea than coming in through Kor-Azor.

Good luck and have fun!
