Hello. I live in a beautiful suburb of Vancouver. It certainly is a very beautiful region on the west coast of Canada. There are many very scenic places around here. Vancouver Island and the city of Victoria on the island are really wonderful atractions for visitors and tourists. Are there many tourist attractions around where you live ? Where will you take your friend to if he/she visits you ?

I think I would take a friend to Gatlinburg. It is a tourist city in the mountains. There are a million things to do and see. I would maybe take them to the Dixie Stampede. It's a dinner/show that was great the last time I went to see it. The last time I had a friend visit I also took them to a waterfall that I go to quite often in the summer.

Gatlinburg ! That would be very nice. I have heard the name many times, and have heard about visitors enjoying. Dixie Stampede ? That is new to me. Up on the Smokies too ?

It is just a few minutes before entering Gatlinburg in a tourist town called Sevierville. The Dixie Stampede is one of the attractions there and I enjoyed it when I went. There is a website for it if you want to check it out.

Anywher he wants to go. My best friend is Jonesing for a trip to The States like I am for a trip to his London.he seems to interested in all of the U.S. so if he ever got over here I would go Anywhere he wanted to go. I think he feels the same way about me. If I ever get to London, he would take me wherever I wanted to go.

I had a couple of friends over from the UK who spent two wonderful days with me. I knew what they wanted to see and I took them there specially the heritage village - a museum where one could see artefacts collected from all over even as old as a thousand years.

Oh, that is a very interesting museum, having artifacts from over a thousand years ! Yes, visitors and friends would certainly enjoy visiting the museum.

I live in Århus, Denmark, and to be honest it doesn't compare to Vancouver (I lived in Vancouver in 2008). I fell so much in love with Vancouver when I lived there, that I am moving there again, as soon as I have finished my studies. Hopefully it will go well with immigration :) But if any of you ever come near Århus, you should go to the canal downtown and just stroll around the small shopping streets and experience the latin quarter. It's a very peaceful and slow-paced city, beautifully set on the eastern coast of Jutland. While in Denmark you should also do yourself the favor of going to Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, and experience the Royal Guards, Tivoli and of course the little mermaid. Tivoli is especially beautiful in the winter time, when they light many thousands of lights around the park :) Have a good trip!

I have been to Copenhagen once, indeed, I was very impressed withn the beauty of the City. I took the time to go around in the city centre. I did not know about Arhus then. Yes, certainly, welcome to Vancouver !

Hi, greenline. The only tourist attraction would be Myrtle Beach.. That is what first comes to my mind. And other place if further. The Atlantic Beach would be another place that people can visit. For me to see many tourist attractions, I would have to visit another state or country that has more sites to see. I wished that I could live in a place where there are many attractions to see. I know that it would be very beautiful.

Hello my friend Green Line. When my German friend visited me I took him on a boat along the River Thames. We visited Windsor and saw one of the residences of the Queen. I also had my Polish friend visit me. I took him to see the sights in Central London. He enjoyed seeing Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Recently a friend from Brighton visited me and I took him to see Weston super Mare, a coastal town. We went to a pirate party which was great fun. We also went for a stroll along Sand Bay. My home country has a rich history and lots of interesting sites. I would love to visit Vancouver and Vancouver Island.

If my friends visit my place then i would take them to all of the historical monuments at our place coz they really like the cravings on the marbles which were made some centuries ago.The next one would be one of the seven wonders--TajMahal and some others beautiful places where me and my friends hangout and take them for a night ride on sports bikes. Disclaimer:only those would be taken for a ride who bring some valuable gifts for Mr sunnycool. Enjoyed your response Greenline.gud day.

Hi there Green Line. I live in Bucharest and if a foreign friend comes to visit there are really lots of attractions to visit. There are plenty of theaters, cinemas, malls, museums, parks and also architectural marvels, like the House of Parliament, the largest building in Europe, the second largest in the world after the Pentagon. There are also a lot of spiritual places to visit, from various religions and thus from different architectural concept and there are also Christmas parties, fairs this time of year. There is also a drive in Cinema that has been recently finished and i think that would be interesting as well. Well to make it short i guess this would sum it up.

If a friend visits me, I will bring him to the many beautiful places in the island. Our place is a historical one and I will show him to the landmark which tells about it. I will show him around the oldest street of the Philippines which is found in our city. We have so many beautiful beaches here and surely, that will be one of the stopovers. The mountainside is a very nice spot to view the city and there are beautiful tourist spots up there and I will also take him to view this site. of course, I will let him taste the freshest seafood in the place.

Well, i would not worry if my friend will come and visit me because i will take her to our place. Our's is a hidden paradise very few have discovered yet and very rich in natural resources we can really enjoy with. Our white sand beaches and clear sea waters are really an amazing wonder for newcomers and tourists who happen to visit there. Fresh fruits and vegetables as well as first class fishes are plenty averyday. Beautiful mountain ridges are so inviting for hikers and mountaineers. Peole also are very hospitable and very peace loving. So there is no other place i would want my friend to be than Romblon,Philippines.

Hi, Greenline. Nice to see you again. Here in my city i do not know of any place to take a friend who will visit. But in the nearby provinces, there are a lot of beautiful and scenic places where i could take a friend. There is one in Ilocos Norte is Pagudpod, where they have white sand beach. A surfer's haven in La Union and a lot of nice resorts. Then, 30-45 minutes away from where i live, i could take them to San Jose where the Shrine of the True Cross is lovated which is the only one in Asia. It is locateed west from where i live and the drivie to the country side is truly enjoyable. Then, down south i can take them to take mountain hiking to Mt. Pinatubo's crater which is so majestic, where they could enjoy the hot spring spa located nearby. This place has become very famous among local and foreign tourists as well.

OK, now I'm jealous. I have been to Vancouver a couple of years ago and stayed for a month. I am so dying to go back! Such an amazing city. I live in Istanbul, Turkey and we get a lot of tourists. I think I'd first take my guest to cross sides-since Istanbul is located on both Asia and Europe. I love this two-continent aspect ; )

You are very welcome to come to Vancouver. I have never been to Istanbul yet. I have seen some beautiful pictures of the city, and I am longing to visit some day.
