Which countries that you have visited that leaves you with the most memorable experience? Was it good or bad? I personally had one experience, i visited Narathiwat, Thailand with my family and relatives after the bombing incidents happened. I felt scared and excited at the same time albeit things has started to cool off. Our cars were scanned by metal detectors before we gain admittance to the hotel's carpark. 3 days after we left, another bombing incidents happened.

I've just gone back from Malaysia 3 days ago. It's a beautiful country, nice and friendly people and yes, I'd love to go back. Actually I went there for medical reason, but I did give myself time to explore and shopping (it's relatively cheaper there). Cheers!

So far, I havent got an opportunity to visit any foreign country.. because I belong to India and India is so large and so vast, with so many different cultures, different people, their different customs and beliefs.. and so far, I havent been to every visitable part of my country. So, I have planned that I will first see my country first, then I'll go for other countries if I have money and time. Regarding experiences, I havent so far experienced any unusual experience.. so, no comments.

i agree with you that India is a vast country. it also has colorful cultures, histories and captivating landmarks. It might took considerable amount of planning and resources to visit all places in India. I wish you success for your plans!

Sana'a, Yemen. It blew all of my expectations out of the water. The people were welcoming, friendly, and so eager to show their beautiful country to me. The countryside itself was actually not very attractive, but it was made beautiful by the passion and enthusiasm of its inhabitants. I felt totally safe there as a single woman and was somewhat surprised by that. It was an amazing place. I can't wait to go back.

I visited Phnom Penh late last year and found the capital city to be very rich in their culture although the economy is still rebuilding. My unique experience was that mostly about 70% of businesses and restaurants there only accept US Dollars in their transactions.

That is an interesting information daryllau. Thanks for relating this, i'm sure this is very useful for anyone who would like to visit Phnom Penh. I'll keep this in mind if i had the chance to go there myself.

I went to China with my family last year. It has been a very unforgetable moments there, because I had my 18th bithday there, and they made a surprised party for me. At the morning, I woke up and felt very sad because no one congratulated 'happy birthday' to me. But in the afternoon, the tour leader suddenly bring us to an Indonesian Restaurant, and surprisedly my parents & my sister came out bringing a big cake & singing for me. I felt really happy for that.
