What is your ultimate travel destination?

Philippines

For me, i enjoy somewhere with a tropical climate so I have really wanted to visit Palau or somewhere in Asia Pacific. I enjoy dipping in the ocean blue waters while feeling the heat of the sun. Good thing we have great beaches here in Davao City, Philippines at Island Garden City of Samal. I suggest tourists to the Philippines to visit this place, you'd never be disappointed. In Europe, I also wish to visit Ireland. The emerald isle just have this appeal on me that I cannot explain. perhaps cuz i love enjoying the purity of nature. So, whats yours?

I want to go to many countries but amoung the many ones which I would love to go there are countries like China, Singapoor, India(some places are really beautiful over there), kashmir, poland. Well I know there are many but the ultimate one would be maybe Egypt right now.

Singapore is a really modern city. If you like shopping, go there. But as an exotic place, Singapore is really small and lacks of historical value. It's just my opinion. If you go to Singapore, better also visit Bali, Bangkok, or Bunaken, it is much more worth it than Singapore.

Simgapore is indeed a wonderful country, I have friends who visited the country and told the that shopping there is a dream and as I am someone who loves to do shopping I think I will definitely be coming there one day.

Bora Bora! They have these little huts built right on the beach and food and service is delivered to you by boat. You can get a massage facing the ocean life with the ocean as your floorboard.

ows! i havent been to bora although im from the philippines. hope to visit there sometime!

what i meant is Bora Bora not Boracay, it certainly looks like Boracay but Bora Bora is better. You might want to check it online, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bora_Bora =)

Bora-Bora is in French Polynesia. I think Boracay is comparable to Bora-Bora but the main difference is Boracay is much more developed compare to Bora-Bora, which also gives Boracay the disadvantage if you are looking for a more serene and pure place to relax. Happy MyLotting!

Viva La Republica Filipina! Well it really is a good country especially in provinces where it is quiet. I would love to go to the last frontier of the Philippines, Mindanao. It's still undiscovered but I bet that it would be a great investment sice its believed that Mindanao contains rich oil fields. Not yet dug of course.

ive been to many places before, but ive never gone without my parents. it will be a while before i can go with me and my girlfriend. im tihnking china might be a good place to visit, tour the mountains and the great wall. ive been to paris, france before and i actually dont think its as great as people say it is. venice is not as nice either, the water is merky and there isnt that much to see. nonetheless, im not saying that you should not visit these places, just that i do not tihnk it is worth visiting a secondtime

I enjoy travelling, and I have been to many beautiful places in different parts of the world. Each country is unique in its ways, beaches, forests, mountains, rivers, beautiful cities. One place I haven't been to and very much want to have the opportunity is the South Pacific Islands. I have seen many photos, so lovely, so enchanting ! I hope I can make it some day soon !
• Philippines

yes! love the beaches too. you are going to make, im sure! it's just wonderful to see the natural beauty the world has to offer :)

South Pacific Islands are amazing!! My Wife and I went to Cook Islands for our honeymoon, it was unforgettable. Beaches were beautiful. The people were so kind and friendly. We would go back for sure, cant wait.

Bora Bora or Tahiti would be the ultimate spot!! Sp pristine & beautiful. I love the water villas concept there.. But the huge downside is that its incredibly pricey! So, guess I'll have to settle for less costlier options like the Maldives & Bali. I find these places incredibly exotic. The color of sea, the balmy weather, the culture amazes me. The temples at Bali add a lot to the exoticism!
• Philippines

i haven't really known much about Bali but i heard from someone that it is such a lovely place. so, im keeping my options open and would love to pay it a visit myself.

I like to go to the Philippines. I don't listen to those news about those terrorist which in my 14 year stay there I never encountered any one of them. When news from the east comes to west, it usually is exaggerated. The first thing that I would visit is Boracay. Then Baguio city( even though I went there 2 years ago). Then Palawan and so on.

you must go! mindanao too is quite and peaceful. in fact, davao is the city where i live in and it has consistently belonged to the top livable cities in asia. it is not as war-stricken as it is being depicted. sometimes, media tend to over-sensationalize how they project news. in fact, davao is a lot more beautiful than the capital city where it is such a busy metropolitan. in davao, it is a modern city but still you can get close to nature ;)

I've only traveled to the Philippines for vacation with my family so I would rather go somewhere much different. I would love to enjoy the art, food, culture, and architecture of Paris or Rome. But I would also love Hawaii.

If your coming to Hawaii visit the Haleakala Mountain its very cold there in the morning and is good site to watch the sun rise. Aloha!

5 years ago, when im still not working,i would say Boracay..and i really visited the place 4 times already. ive been to different places mostly in the philippines. The last time i went to Boracay, i saw this sign for Palau..so that will come next. And were the same..i wanted to go to that place too. 2 years ago when we attended this travel expo, we saw kids from Palau who came during and dance at the program. So, that next destination. I also would like to travel to Asia..and finally be able to go to Europe. I also love nature..and history and museums.

Most of all I would love to visit Machu Picchu in Peru. It is a historical site in the mountains. It can be reached by walking along the popular track or by train. It would be such a very exciting journey. There are other destinations in South America that I would love to visit like Cartagena de Indies in Colombia. I would like to go on a cruise around the Galapagos Islands to see all the wildlife. It would be lovely if I could visit Rio de Janeiro. I like to see attractive architecture in cities. I adore tropical islands in the warm sunshine. It is excellent to spend time on palm fringed beaches. I like to go snorkeling to see colorful coral. I would love to visit Madagascar for the beaches and to see the lemurs. I would like to go to Mauritius to spend time on the gorgeous looking beaches. In the Caribbean many islands appeal to me like Grenada and Tobago. One day I hope to go island hopping and snorkeling in the Philippines.

After going to so many places, my ultimate choice is still Venice, Italy despite I've been there twice in year 2004. I like the artistic buildings, the culture, the canopies, etc; especially with water surrounding the place. Having a cup of Espresso while listening to the live classial music at St Mark Square was an extremely wonderful experience for me. Unfortunately I was there twice on business trips and not on holiday or leisure. I really wish to go there again but this round with my loved one, such a romantic place for honeymoon couples... :)

I would have to say my ultimate destination couldn't just be one place, it would be the whole continent. Europe! There is soo many different places to visit. Such a big place, but so many unique countries. Hungry, Austria, Swiss, would be awesome to visit. Cant wait to go again.

haha! great choice there. Europe for some is like the holy grail! wish i could visit too :)

I have not traveled out of India and thus can talk about only about destinations in India. I love traveling, so it does not matter much where I am travelling as long as I am traveling!!! In India I have been to most of the popular places. Some places which I like most and keep visiting again and again are Yercaud, Nanjungud, Puri, etc. However, two places which keep bringing me pleasant memories is a small hill little known outside Karnataka, namely Himavad GopalSwamy Hills. Himavad Gopalswamy Hills is located about 65kms from Mysore, the city of Palaces. The strange thing about this place that there are no Crows in this Hill and most surprisingly, even in the Peak of Summer, the inside of this Temple of Krishna with the image of Lord Krishna gets drops of Water dripping on the image of the Lord. Surprising, shocking, but very pleasant to watch. Nature's wonder at its best. Do visit the place when you are in Karnataka.

I love sun and for me sun mean the Caribbean. I have a timeshare in Aruba and I go there for 2 weeks every other year. I would like to visit other places too. Machu Picchu is my most importan dream, followed by Greece and India. I would also love to visit again the South of Sapin.

There's a lot of places I would like to go. I've always wanted to explore the world. At the moment, the one place I really want to go to is Russia.
