Hi, Like everyone else that has responded, I too have been to some incredible places. I think that Egypt would be a top pick or the Galapagos Islands which is an amazing place. Also, you might consider Cambodia to see Angkor Wat which is another amazing place. Have fun !!!! Lisa

A few of the best places for me are:

Australia, Peru, Ireland and Costa Rica.

All very different and great in their own right. Next I need to get to South Africa.

The cave drawings at Altamira and in the Perigord.

Climbing the temples and being above the canopy of the rain forest in Tikal.

Sicily and the antiquities, beauty, and Etna

Walking the street of Paris before the city awakwens.

Watching a volcano erupt at Arenal, Costa Rica.

Dancing the La Sardana with Catalans as a quiet protest against Facism and now as symbol of the human spirit.

Watching the farm and the family where my father in law grew up in northwestern Spain from having to crank water by hand for a cow farm to having all the children attend college.

Great question because it sure is fun trying to decide....

1. France: Paris
2. Australia: Sydney & Great Barrier
Reef
3. Norway: Oslo & Bergen (fjord
(country)
4. U.S. National Parks: Grand Canyon
North Rim, Bryce, & Yellowstone
5. Canada: Lake Louise

I have a strong feeling that I will be adding Africa to my "Top 5" in October!

Wow, this is a really old thread but glad it was resurrected as there are some incredible photo galleries that I missed back then. MV..you have some of the best wild dog shots I have seen.

I have a feeling I know where the best place in the world is but haven't been there yet

Well,we're from British Columbia (Canada) and our newly issued BC license plate says "The Best Place in the World". Does that count?

Hate a thread? How odd. Anyway, I would have to agree with the west coast of British Columbia but also the underwater life off the Lighthouse reef, Belize.

Torres del Paine, Chile

Chile's national park full of glaciers, wild life and nice people.

You can see some pictures from my 1992 trip:

My cousin went there last year, not many changes except a few more places to buy groceries.

It's as if you told G-d what you want in a national park, and he built it.

Ohhhhhh.... this thread goes for such a long time.
I think New Zealand (especially South Island) is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
I visited Tibet, Burma and China but yet I think I saw the most-breathtaking view in NZ.

My vote would be for Northern Portugal. The little villages, local cuisine & wine, quaint bed & Breakfast accomodations, and the breathtaking mountain scenery made this trip nothing short of amazing. If you would still like some time viewing castles and architecture, the bigger cities close by (Porto and Santiago in Spain) offer this. Have fun.

I'm just back from Norway, travelling from the bottom to the top and back. As beautiful is Norway is, I still favor Africa. In just a few months I will have been to both the North Cape and the South Cape. Every place on earth has its own beauty. Enjoy where you are at the moment as the best place on Earth today!

Well said Safarimama!!

Heli Hiking in the Canadian rockies is an incredible experience. The scenery, the fresh mountain air, fabulous remote accommodation with comfy beds and great food, wildlife, wildflowers, no crowds etc. all combine for a memorable life experience. Add to that the fact that you don't need any jabs or malaria meds!!!!

River rafting the Tatshenshini River in the Yukon out the the Alaskan coast is an amazing experience as well and one the kids will never forget. Lots of good family Q-time!!!!
