    The best place in on earth would certainly have to be Las Vegas. The city where sin never sleeps ;)

    Mongolia. On the steppe.

    It's amazing. Great scenery, and the people are friendly and always smiling. It's unpolluted, and it just looks great.

    Then again, I probably need parties and friends and shizzle like that, so I don't really know :S

    Yeah Met... friends... I can sell you a couple of those ;)

    No really, I'm part of this whole "remote area tourism" thingy right now, and I can tell you, there's always options. The first one's always Go There Anyway. Who cares you don't know anyone, there's always someone going the same way as you are, and in a remote area of the world, the mere idea you've been introduced to (and raised with) things as "luxury" immediately shapes a bond.

    The other way is, of course, by going on one of these organised group trips. Lookit what google drew from the high hat that is the internet ;)


    But, to get back on topic, I've really grown to like South Luangwa, Zambia.

    Austria. A wonderful place who's people put us to shame Beautiful and captivating, it's like a real fantasy landscape. Climbing the snowy mountains is like visiting Narnia.

    agreed, it is indeed the golden city


    Lake Tahoe, I'll say. When you're standing in there, water all around, a breeze making you shiver and you kind of feel protected by the mountains... That really is a beautiful place.

    My favourite place in the world is Mt Aspiring National Park in the South Island of New Zealand. Amazing braided rivers, glacial valleys, snow-capped mountains, and primordial beech forests. And barely a human being in sight.

    The best place on earth is Gothenburg, Sweden!... Noo, its been snowing the last week and its April! not to my liking.
    But i haven't been to so many places really. Turkey was nice, but not the best place. If I were to visit some places in either America, new Zealand or Australia. Or possibly Scotland. There's where the best places on earth might be! But i got to go there to find out some day!

    Long Meadow Grove, which is part of Sequoia National Monument in California.
    It has a positively prehistoric feel about it that makes the hiker feel as if he's passing through a place where the trees have stood since the beginning of time.

    Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. There's plenty of exotic places I'd love to visit and whatnot, but Melbourne is a place that I'd want to live.

    I've been to China, Paris and Amsterdam, but only in their airports. From that I've ruled out Amsterdam and China as the best places though, because to get to either of them I'd have to go through that again.

    And I've spent 5 weeks in the UK. I would've liked to say it was the best, but it was all too vanilla for me. Not enough choice, the shops all seemed to have the same stuff in them and London was mostly disappointing, except for a small strip next to the thames. I am willing to put that all down to the bland people I was staying with though, that didn't know where the good stuff was. One of these days I'll have to go back and have a proper visit and spend more time in England than Wales.

    Perisher Valley in snow season, NSW Australia. It only snows 2-3 months out of the year here (and not a lot), so I love skiing and any chance I get, I head on down.

    A castle in the Alps. Damn, I'd love to wake up one day, just to get lost trying to find my way to the kitchen.

    Living with the circus sounds fun. I haven't travelled enough to decide the best place yet, I get back to this thread when I've travelled the world.

    Haven't really traveled much, but from where I've been the mountains of North Carolina is probably one of my favorite places. Of course I'd also need my other favorite place, my office, to be up there too.

    the peak of Mt. Nagarkot in Nepal...simply incredible when the sun rises behind Mt. Everest and you can view it from the Peaceful Cottage!
