Hi all !
I've just been 18 (since yesterday
) and for my birthday I'm planning a one week long trip to "somewhere in the world" with my father... I don't really know where to go and I'm not a big traveller like many of you, and since this forum is full of ppl who spend their life abroad
so I'm sure you'll be able to tell me more about the following places, and your opinion.
We'd leave somewhen between October 22th and October 27th...
I've thought about the following places:
-Hong Kong. It's been a dream of mine for a long time to go to Hong Kong, but is it true that life is expensive there ? I've also heard that it's not worth spending more than 3 nights there, is it true ? Can u tell me more about HK
, do the ppl there speak English and not only chinese ?
in the USA:
-New York: I've also always wanted to go to New York, but hotels are quite expensive there.
-Los Angeles: I've been there when I was younger, I had a great time
I wished I could add Australia and New Zealand, but the France-NZ and France-Australia are rather expensive...
I'd love to go to Japan too, but it seems that hotels there are very expensive. I've been to Shanghai this summer (what an awesome place...), and now I'd love to go to Beijing but if you don't speak Chinese it's almost impossible to take the bus, ask someone in the street, etc... I guess it's the same in lots of asian cities.
If u have other ideas of great places to visit, please tell me !
thanks a lot.
