A very interesting list. It would have been fun to see that show. I know many of the places though and i think those 50 choises were very well chosen.

Sorry, but lmao.

(You probably know it as Ayer's Rock..... and, yes, I've been there, one of my life's peak experiences.)

So far I've managed: 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 12, 14, 18, 24, 25, 27, 35, 36, 39, 42, 49........ that still leaves me a lot of work to do. :)

Thanks jouissant, I've never heard it called Uluru. Is that it's aboriginal name or something? I'm glad you told me as I'll be visiting Australia in the new year and don't want to look too much of a 'dumb tourist'.:rolleyes:

I've been lucky enough to of visited 12 of the places listed - 1. The Grand Canyon / 7. Las Vegas / 10. Taj Mahal / 18. Venice / 20. Great Wall of China / 22. Hong Kong / 27. Paris / 30. Himalayas - Nepal / 34. Luxor - Egypt / 35. Rome / 42. Bangkok / 45. Terracotta Army - China

Out of all of these, the most awesome and beautiful was definately the Grand Canyon, so I'm really happy that it's at number one!!! :D
Another really amazing one was the Terracotta Army - the area it covers is much bigger than I ever thought it would be, and it's hard to believe that everyone of the figures are different, none of them are exactly the same!!

From the rest of the list, I'd love to see Petra, Angkor Wat, The Pyramids, Machu Picchu, Chichen Itza, Uluru, Yosemite National Park, The Great Barrier Reef, Galapagos and Iceland!

Hopefully I'm gonna get to Angkor Wat in Cambodia next year!!! :D

Colin B
Nov 11th, 2002, 12:11 AM
I've been to all the European ones except Venice.

My top five would be:
Machu Picchu
The Pyramids
The Terracotta Army
Antarctica *
The Moon *

* No, I know they're not on the list.

There are 2 places on that list where I really wanna go and they are Iceland and New Zealand.

I've always wanted to go to New Zealand as it looks incredible and a place that I would love. I did a piece of Coursework on it for My GCSE's and got a B!! :) Whenever I decide to move away New Zealand would be very high on my places to move to list!.

Iceland looks really beautful as well. Some of the photos I've seen are stunning. It's on top of a volcano isn't it?? I'm sure I learnt that at some time!

gmt
Nov 11th, 2002, 06:33 PM
There are several volcanoes in Iceland, which is in a tectonically very active area. One of them is the Hekla.

I read somewhere that the Icelandic government did not hesitate to give grants to its students who wanted to study abroad. Most of them come back. I suppose that when you were born in such a special place, you can hardly feel at home anywhere else in the world...

I've been to nine places!

Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Hawaii, Disney World, New York, Singapore, Hong Kong, Auckland, Canadian Rockies

OK, so I didn't leave the airport in Auckland or Hong Kong, and I flew over the Canadian Rockies (many times though!)

my very dear mr super man :D

well, although i am from Hong Kong, i don't find it worth visiting except for eating and shopping coz Hk is so small with few beautiful sites :o

by the way, my boss will be flying to you this friday, residing the luxurious fourseasons hotel, why this hotel so strange, i could not get to their line for the whole day :mad:

Well I've always maintained that the one place for me to see before I die would be New York. :) So now that I've seen it, does that mean I can die in peace? :eek: ;) It did fulfil my expectations though and more. I fell in love with it madly, truly, deeply! :hearts: It's the most magical city in the world.

Apart from that I've seen:

1 The Grand Canyon (deserves its #1 spot)
7 Las Vegas (I wish I hadn't)
18 Venice (also an enchanting city)
23 Yosemite National Park (my favorite place in the USA :) apart from NYC)
27 Paris (romantic)
36 San Francisco (mixed feelings, but mostly a lovable city)
37 Barcelona (extraordinary city, my favorite one in Spain, Gaudi was a genius)

My top 5 places I still have to visit:

12 Uluru
14 Machu Picchu - Peru
4 South Island (NZ)
28 Alaska
44 Iceland
