I am currently 3 years behind on my tips, sorry.
South America coming soon!
It is never easy to choose your stand out destinations . Sometimes it's a special place because of the people you meet or the atmosphere you get. Other times the sights and sounds are important. Personally I really enjoy places where it is so different and culturally rich from what you are used to.
In no particular order here are my gems.
Cesky Krumlov, Czech Rep
Salvador da Bahia, Brazil
El Calafate, Argentina
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Hong Kong, PRC
Luang Prabang, Laos
When I travel, I try to learn at least some survival language rather than rely on English
The two essentials have to be "thank you " and "cheers" because tourists should always be polite and they should all be able to toast!
Here is the list of languages I have "mastered"
French : Merci/Sante
Spanish : Gracias/Salud
German : Danke/Prost
Italian : Grazi/Salute
Arabic : Bislama/Shrokran
Russian : Spasiba/ Na zd'rovye
Bulgarian : Blagodaria/Na zdrave
Romanian : Multumesc/Noroc
Hungarian : Koszonom/Egeszsegedre
Chinese : Xie xie/Ganbei
Tagalog : Salamat/Mabuhay
