Is Peru the best place you visited?

Postby chi chi » Sat May 12, 2012 12:10 am

I travelled to more than 100 countries. I am always excited to meet new cultures, traditions, food and people.
One of the countries that fascinated me the most is Peru. Because of it's diversity of landscapes. Peru has everything. It has forest with amazing fauna and flora, paradise like beaches, high mountains and deserts.

Other countries that I found amazing are Bolivia, Iran, North Korea, Mongolia, Brunei, Yemen and Guatemala.

Is Peru on top of your list or which other countries you were impressed with.

Epcot is probably the best, as you can visit many countries in a day and then you can go the next day to Universal studios and go on the rides!

I'd have to go with S. Korea - spent a year there and didn't want to leave. When I first came to Peru, it reminded me a great deal of Korea, which may be why I adapted to life here relatively easily.

US is one of my favourates too. Alaska, Montana and Wyoming have amazing landscapes. Hopping over the border there and you are in Canada. Another beautifull country with friendly people.
First time, I went in Canada I felt like coming home. There's something about Canada that makes you feel like at home.

Peru is my favourite....have been all over S.America and Europe and although I could pick individual things about different countries that are my favourite....my overall favourite country is Peru. Other standouts for me are Canada (my home country)...a little boring but incredibly clean, safe and cosmopolitan (Toronto< Montreal, Vancouver), Panama--an interesting country for me....people in Panama City seem to be the happiest in any city I have ever been and Scotland---people are genuinely warm and my trip to the Outer Hebrides was simply amazing.

Montana and Wyoming have amazing landscapes.

I have traveled the USA all my life. The two states you mentioned are not well promoted because of their vast expanses. But brother I got to agree . If you can live off the land what a place to be. I feel sorry for those that think going to the Cinema is exciting. They don't know what their missing. Hip Hip to you . Great choices

altho i said the States and Holland are my favourites i do think that when you grow up with american and european culture on TV, radio etc all the time you are kind of already very familiar with the culture when you arrive at those desinations, and so nothing surprises you. However when you get to Peru you are arriving in a whole new world altogether and everything is new and so you end up having a totally unique experience. Also the amazing landscape, culture and history only add to the overall experience. Lima has many flaws, but despite all that the costa verde from Miraflores to Baranco has a beautiful view over the bay with really pretty parks which really are something for any city in the world to be proud of.

The most beautifull and cleanest country I lived in is Ireland.

Little polution, no dirty factories.
Amazing scenery, very friendly and honest people, good food and a lot of 'craic'.

The have a nice language and town and villages are upkept and traditional.

When there economy picks up again and the jobmarket is better, for sure I am considering going back there.

If you respect Irish people and their country then they won't harm you. I lived 3 years in Ireland and never had any or seen any problems at all. Ireland is one of the safest countries for tourists in the world.
