There are ofcourse unique and wonderful places in countries around the world to see. One of the places which I was so amazed when I saw it for the first time was Mount Fuji (Fujiyama) in Japan. That was so stunningly impressive and I would say one of the unique places in the world. I can see in my mind's eye the view as we were approaching Mount Fuji by car.

Hi, diplomats21! The most amazing place that I have ever visited is Vietnam. But that was very long time ago- about 15 years ago. I was 7 then, and me and my father went to Vietnam. My father is Vietnamese, so I'm a half Vietnamese, a half Bulgarian. So we traveled with plane- it was very interesting for me, I haven't traveled with a plane before, and I was very scary. We made a stop in Moscow for about 12 hours, and then we got on a other plane to Vietnam. As we arrived all my relatives from Vietnam were on the airport. It was so wonderful. I have seen them only on pictures and now we looked each other face to face. They took us to the village where my grandparents live, and the were many more people- relatives, neighbors, about 100 people. I was very surprised. It came a photographer, who took me a photo with all my family and all other people. Then he took me a picture with my relatives, but one by one. And that took about 1 hour. After that there was a very, very big table for all guests and another for the family. The feast last about 5-6 hours and after that my cousin shown me my room. It looked very nice and cozy. I slept like a baby. On the other morning, they took us(me and my father) to the sea- it was about 150 km. from the village. Well, that was one of the greatest views I have ever seen-the sea and the rocks raised up from it. A majestic view. We took for a walk and took some pictures. After that we got back to the villige. At the night we came out on a hunt for crayfishes- they can be hunt only at night, because they are active at night. It was very fun and even I caught about 15 pieces of them. The next day I was with my cousins at a carate training. I liked it so much. We also went to the capital Hanoi and I saw the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum. It's a very impressiv building. So we went to my aunt, who live in Hanoi, there I also played with my cousins. Afer about a month in Vietnam we must leave, because our visa expired. So at the airport were all my relatives again, and it was very hard for me to take a Goodbye with them. We took many photos and me and my father got into the plane.

The most amazing place that I have ever been to is Samoa in the South Pacific Ocean. Not many airlines go there and so it is quiet plus it is really unspoilt. I loved seeing the palm fringed beaches, the green rain forest, the cool waterfalls and the fascinating village like capital city. I visited the museum that was the house of the author called Robert Louis Stevenson. I adored snorkeling to see the coral reef/

Costa Rica, I just went on a one week vacation alone to Costa Rica to visit some friends there and I loved it. I just love nature and Costa Rica is pure nature. I visited the volcanoes, dark sand beaches close to Panama, rapids, rivers, etc. I had a 5 hour car trip to the Panama border. It was amaizing.

I really loved Venice when I visited there a few years ago. It is hard to pick a most amazing place, but Venice was definitely something special. Pulling into the train station at sunset, it looked like we were completely floating on the water with orange and purple sunlight streaking through the water around us. It was absolutely breathtaking. And the history of the city itself is incredible, you really can feel it oozing from every wall and every alleyway!

I was really stunned in two places: 1) Paris - La defense...the huge store Quatre Temps is just amazing, especially from someone coming from the country, lol. And l'Allee de l'arche. Stunning. 3) Paris - Tour Eiffel...I climbed on it with the stairs and I was left wordless both for the effort and the view. I made it and I'm proud.
