What Has Been Your Best Holiday Resort So Far And Why Would That Be?

July 23, 2009 7:08pm CST
Personally I have been travelling since the age of 2 months old, my first flight being to the UK but I must say the best and the most exotic holiday resort I have been to has to be Seychelles. I have been there like three times already and I could go on about it all day describing the little cute island it is. The people, the culture, the atmosphere, the food, the weather, the beaches are just simply amazing! The people there are so loving and friendly, you feel like as if you knew them for a long time, the atmosphere is so damn relaxing and stress free. Oh don't forget the food, I probably have stuffed myself there more than how much i usually do at my homeplace. Such a small place but certainly has the best rewards indeed! Now lets hear yours!

Hi Monster, I like China the best, not the cities part, but the rural China where people are still friendly and the air is very fresh. Once we stayed in a hotel at the foot of Emei mountain, most tourists stay for a night or two. They started off very early in the morning, and reached the hotel late at night. We were different, we woke up before 11 am (after a day of strenous hiking), had a leisure breakfast, chatting with the waitresses who served us. We got to learn about how certain dishes were prepared, and even about the way of life. The food is very cheap in rural part of China. I hope to go Guizhou one day, one of the poorest province and most unspoilt part of China.

Wow thanks so much for the reply, i was beginning to wonder will anyone reply to me surely this ain't a bad topic. :) Yea i understand your point and i don't blame you for loving the rural parts of China, i have seen photos and i must say they are breathtaking indeed. By the way have you ever considered visitng Guilin in China? Here is a photographer who has been there and omg the photo and his comment on it is truly awesome! michealandersone.deviantart.com/art/Timeless-108667527 I am sure you would love it :)

No, not Guilin, I have an old atlas of China, with a lot of black and white photos, one of the pictures is of Guilin, before tourism destroys the beauty of the place. Even my friends in China, those in the tourism industry, do not mention Guilin anymore. I always go to those remote part of China which is still very beautiful, and people are simple and nice. It's a pity about the earthquake in Szechuan. Szechuan has some of the best scenaries in China.

So if i understood you correctly, you are saying Quilin isn't exciting anymore eh? Is it getting too much tourists nowadays? Reminds of Mauritius, my home country, today its full of tourists we don't even have space for ourselves...meh.

I've traveled a lot.. since a kid. I guess i could say canada's niagra falls was pretty fantastic but the problem is we went there during winter, we couldn't open our eyes. The water from the fall became ice by the time it reached toward us, poking us in the eye. so we just stood there, eyes closed listened to the sounds. (does that count as seeing the biggest water fall in the world ??? LOL) but last march, my family and i went to india, we went to see the taj mahal. it was... magical. heart stopping. we rented a house in delhi, rented a car to agra, another state. 5 hours drive or so. the roads were pretty bad... had tyre puncture twice in the same day. spend a few hours standing outside. but it was nice.. once the tyre got punctured beside a farm. there was a small river kind of thing. underground water being pumped out. the water was ice cold. and it was summer there. when we finally reached taj mahal, it was just... a dream. we had a guide who told us everything about the place. visited some other places there and went back home. its a day i shall never forget.

Haha nice one. I bet taj mahal must have been a good experience too as you don't get too see many world wonders everyday. Sorry about the tyre punctures, that must have been headache pff. India is probably the worst place you would ever wanna drive a car isn't it?

The tyre part maybe a road block but i'm the sort of person who tries to look at the bottle half full. we talked to some local people, sat in the blazing sun and got watched like we were movie stars or something like that. lol. the roads were not so good, but at least there were roads. :) i like your topics. happy mylotting

I am an independent traveler and I like to explore a few localities on the same trip. I like to stay in locally owned guest houses and unusual accommodation like tree houses. I don't stay in resorts because I like budget places rather than luxury destinations. In 2004 I visited the Seychelles. Wow! It has the best beaches in all of the world. In 2005 I went to the Maldives and that wasn't quite as special. It was expensive with exclusive islands. In the Seychelles La Digue Island was perfect.

Thats some great stuff like staying in tree houses and all, cool! Hehe so you enjoyed your Seychelles tour as well eh :P Yeah i have heard Maldives is a nice place but hasn't got any speical features apart from this restaurant that i heard of which is located underneath the sea and you get to eat while fishes and other sea creatures are bobbling aroung over your head. Its a very beautiful place to be in, you been there by any chance?
