The most beautiful place I've visited is definitely the Lake Tahoe area. A friend and me spent last week there for snowboarding but we've also been there in the summer a few years ago.

Summer:



Winter:



And yes, the snow is really one of the best I've ever boarded on!

Sorry, I forgot to mention!

It is in the USA, the border of California and Nevada leads directly through the lake. Gambling is allowed in Nevada so there is also a very good nightlife thanks to the casinos, bars and clubs. The perfect mix of sport activities and partying. Big grin

Here is a map:



Closest airports are Reno and Sacramento.

Bora Bora:

From the photos, Bora Bora is gorgeous, yet I nearly had a heart-attack over the sticker shock when I thought about going there: USD$22,000/week, per person, not including airfare.

The harbour and beach area of Puntarenas: apart from all the tourists walking around, the traffic jams on the highway to Puntarenas (there are no motorways to the city unless you're like 20 km/12 mi away from town, and being with your parents there, it's a great place to be. Only downside: in this time of year, it gets very hot (my guess is that when I went there two weeks ago, it must have been close to 40°C/104°F). But you can really smell the salty waters of the Pacific and have a beautiful view out when the sky is clear.

The Island of Sylt: it's very beautiful, especially when you walk on the dunes near the sea. The cities of Westerland and Lyst aren't that boring as well, there's lots to see there. You can even go on a small barge and do a small tour of the Wattenmeer. It's very amazing to see how the tide works there, because the shores of the Wattenmeer are so shallow, that during high tide, it's flooded and during low tide, you can walk through great part of what is a flooded shore line. From what I've seen, it's also a great place to go surfing, especially during the autumn. Just watch out for jellyfish there, I got stung by one of them once and the burning sensation didn't stop for hours.

My father always says Lebanon is the most beautiful country in the world , maybe exaggerated but it must be really beautiful there !


I also have to say that Peru is also very beautiful , the Titicaca Lake , Machu Pichu , Cuzco ,etc ...

And Ecuador !

Were you renting out a whole resort?? That is crazy. Are you sure you were not looking at the local currency amounts? When we went we did not spend anything like that and we stayed in one of the over the water bungalows at either the Sheraton or Inter-Continental (mixing the islands up in my mind). Food is expensive, but not that expensive.

Syria had some of the most beautiful ruins and remains I have ever seen, but overall the most beautiful would be Svalbard. Such an amazing landscape, beautiful but desolate, isolated and yet industrial. I would love to go back in the Autumn or Spring for the snow.

Well, I must say I haven't traveled that much... but so far, I have to pick Tikal. I don't know... there's something almost magical about that place... or maybe it's just me... but going there is quite an experience.

I very much enjoyed walking out of the Underound Station in London and having our band director say, "Now everyone look behind you" and there stood Big Ben all lit up. It was great to have read about it all my life, and then to finally see it. London at night in December was amazing. One of the best weeks of my life.
