Philippines

What makes people from other country comes back to your country? My country, which is the Philippines, boasts of many beautiful tourist attraction. There is the Banaue Rice Terraces, which was considered before as the Eighth Wonder of the World, The Mayon Volcano with its almost perfect cone shape, and the many unexploited beaches. But aside from these, i believe that the best tourist attraction is the Filipino people themselves. Why? Because even if we are faced with many trials and problems besetting our nation, our people find it easy to smile through it all. We are a very hospitable and accomodating bunch of people.

Thank you for the invitation. Well, I'm 38 years old and i live here in Tarlac City, Philippines. Frankly speaking, there is nothing i can consider beautiful in my place. The Philippines is known for its many beautiful beaches and landscapes, but unfortunately there is nothing here in Tarlac City. We're in the central part of Luzon, the biggest island of the Philippines. So no beaches here and there is also no mountain. The nearest mountain here is found in Pampanga, the province next to mine. But i am thankful for it means we are not in immediate danger of tsunami or volcanic eruption.

India.. A very colorful country. People come here to have a taste of the diversity, Although united, in which we live. The culture of this country is very great , on par with many others. The historical background of the country is filled with ecstatic stories and many battles, which changed the face of the world. The most popular, Taj Mahal, is one of the wonders of the Earth and attracts many foreign tourists to visit India and savor the country's great heritage and culture. If you ever visit India, make sure that you visit the Taj Mahal, The Qutub Minar, The Tiger Reserve of Sunderbans, and may other Tourists spots. Each state in India, has its own culture and heritage which is very diverse. People have been amazed at the way people live here. bourne

Thanks for the advice. I really wish i could there and visit some of the places you mentioned. I am very much interested about the caste system in india. Do they still practice it there?

Practice?? He he.. The whole of the polity runs on it.. Unlike other countries... there are many parties here... most of them based on religion. So its something that will take a long time to go out.. Its a very bad thing thats hindering the progress of teh country...Dunno when will the people pf the country understand that and get over it .. bourne

Those sound like wondeful tourist attractions,here in the United States I would say our best tourist attractions would be Mount Rushmore in North Dakota,and the Grand Canyon in Arizona,I have never visited either ,but I would love to one day travel and see both.

I love looking at the Grand Canyon through pictures. But i think when i got the chance to see it in person, i would be scared. It is such a vast land where you can't see anything, it's just like you're in another universe where there is no sign of life.

I live in India.There are places of interest in India.For example places like The Taj Mahal in Agra,the lakes and mountains of Kashmir,the forested areas in the North East regions of the country.But my personal favourite is the South of India.Here there is the state of Kerala which is famously called 'God's own country'.It is a befitting name for a land that oozes natural beauty with places like Allepey/Kumarakom which are famous for their backwaters and houseboats and Munnar that has a pristine greenery.Then there is Thekkady which has the Periyar lake and the Wildlife sanctuary.The neighbouring states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka too have extremely popular hill stations and tourist attractions.For me atleast for now it is Kerala - the land of cocnut trees - which is the best tourist attraction.

Thanks for posting. It seems that Indian people are very nationalistic people. What you all have written have shown your love for your country.

according to me the best tourist spot of my country india is goa. the land of beaches and enjoyment. its a completely different world all together. i remember i visited the place a couple of years back with my school friends..unarguebly it was the best time of my life...the great beaches, the churches, the people each and everything about this place is extravagant. the life of goa is completely different from the other pats of the country. goa has a peaceful atmosphere and in simple words i simply love the place..

In my home country, the UK many tourists love to visit the city of London. It has many interesting and historical buildings to see like Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London and Hampton Court. I think the the best sight is the amazing looking Tower Bridge. It is great to go on a trip on a boat down the River Thames. England is a small country and it is easy to take day trips out to places like Leeds Castle in Kent and the historic town of Hastings in Sussex. One of the nicest areas to see is the Somerset countryside with all the pretty villages with thatched cottages. I would love to go to the Philippines to do some island hopping and snorkeling around the coral reefs. I think that it would be lovely to meet the friendly local people. The palm fringed white sandy beaches sound really beautiful. It would be great to walk over the Chocolate Hills on Bohol. I know that I would enjoy taking many photos of the stunning scenery.
