Im going out of my country for the first time. I graduated college and as a gift my dad would pay for my grand vacation. I've never been out of my country. Where do you think should i go and spend my vacation?

hi! as I see you are from the philippines and I think you should go to some really different country, not some in Asia, if you have money enough, so that you can see the other way of living. it will be good to come here in Europe or somewhere in South America or Africa, because the life there is radical different than the life in Asia. I will recommend you Peru in South America, Kenia in Africa and of course my country Bulgaria in Europe! I will wait for you

well, there are many lovely places here, we also have a sea and it is pretty warm during the summer, but there are also many mountains and many many other places with historical and touristic meaning!

I would suggest you visit Malaysia. It is a really beautiful country with some lovely beaches, interesting temples and friendly people. It has many historical buildings. You might be able to fit in a visit to Singapore as well. Another superb destination would be Hong Kong. Wherever you go I hope that you will have an excellent time. My first traveling experience outside my country was to France when I was a child. In my teenage years I went to other countries in Europe like Finland, Tunisia in North Africa and St Lucia in the Caribbean. My daughter will be going on her first trip this year and she will be going to Canada. During my pregnancy with her my toddler son and I visited South Africa.

A lot is going to depend on how independent you are. If you like more organized tours I would suggest Europe. You don't have to go as part of a tour but there are always tours available for sightseeing everywhere. Spend the day with the group then go your own way. If you like the idea of being really independent you should try Australia. There you will have to do a lot more arranging of things on your own.

Speaking of being independent, i will be traveling alone, so im a little scared. My dad can't join me because he's in Thailand right now doing some business matters. And my mom hates to travel because she has a lot going on her business here as well.
