Free quickie trip to a major world city. Where would you go?

Jump to last reply

I have won airfare to anywhere in the world I want to go. (I know, lucky me)
The problem is that it has to be a short turnaround trip.

So the few sights that I would see would have to be near the airport.
(For example, I would like to visit Africa, but that's mostly out since I would have to travel out of the major city to see the wilds, etc)

Another good way to think about it is where would you like to have a very long layover to quickly get out and see some things before having to head back to airport.

Top general areas that I am considering are:
1_ Europe
2_ Africa (with previous example under consideration)
3_ Austrailia

Places that I will not consider are North America, South America and the Middle East.

I realize that the entire concept of this trip is an abomination (flyin/fly out and not really expereince the place), but it's the restrictions I'm dealt and would like to make the best of it.
