most beautiful is probably key west Florida, it's tropical has great ocean views and awesome sites in general.
Most Romantic is probably Riviera Maya Mexico, because it was awesome and pretty much everybody was at peace and doing there own thing and got their own private bungalows.
Most interesting would probably be Mexico as well, foreign language, naming your own price for goods, new culture just in general the area was new and interesting and has a mysterious past with the mayans and their cities left behind.

The best places are sometimes the least thought of. Everyone heads for the Caribbean and its a bore. Other places like Hawaii and such are a big tourist trap and built up as such. I think the best places and most romantic are places such as Eastern Europe which is breathtaking, and south east Asia, like Thailand (if you get out of Bangkok).

Most beautiful : Sri Lanka

Most Romantic: Kenya

Most interesting: Rome

oversall the best place Sri Lanka, Lovely people, hospitable, buddhism religion therefore peaceful. Wonderful beaches, elephant orphange, fantastic tea plantations, not expensive, they dont rip you off, there are not too many tourists a real jewel in the indian ocean. Took my 5 and 8 yeard old children who were very welcomed.

I say i would never go back to a place once i have been there as there are too many places in the world to visit, but i would go back to Sri Lanka.

Okay, we had a thread running here on the worst place people had ever been, so how about this?

Name the best place you have ever been - and why! But let's make this a little more intersting - best place in the following categories:

Most Beautiful
Most Romantic
Most Intersting
________________________________________________________


Most beautiful-Voss-Norway or Baxter State Park, Maine (runner up-Smokey Mts.)

Most Romantic-Niagra Falls-Canadian side, Acadia National Park-Maine, Venice at night going down the canal...or waking up on the Island Lido and swimming in the Adriatic. Also renting out an island on Lake George-NY at sunset.

Most interesting-Paris-that's where my whole trip started and I was at this Youth
Hostel on...Rue De Nestle? in the Latin Quarters...there was cool music and I think incense burning when I got there...met all my friends there who I kept bumping into in different countries the rest of the summer....

Quebec in Canada was really cool and very interesting. The people are great.

For me, as a person that loves history, the best place I've ever visited would have to be Istanbul. That city was beautiful and lively, and the centuries of living history there just filled my heart with awe. To be able to walk on the same marble floor that Roman Emperors walked on was breathtaking to me. And not in ruins, like in Athens or other spots throughout Europe, but in fully functional, continuously inhabited buildings.

Of all the places I've visited. I really liked all except one I will not mention. But the places I visited that really stand out to me, are Thailand and Malaysia. I like the USA as well (surprise)

Most Beautiful Places:
It's a toss up between the Alcazar in Seville (It's a beautiful old Moorish fort), the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona and Lantau Island in Hong Kong.

Most Romantic Places:
Venice or Rome.

Most Interesting:
This one's a bit more difficult because places are interesting for different reasons.
The Angkor Wat temple ruins surrounding Siem Reap are amazing if you're interested in exploring temples ruins.
If you're interested in Art and architecture, most places in Italy are a good bet.
I also really enjoyed exploring Scottish highlands as well as Edinburgh. The country has a very long and colourful history. Being there kind of felt like home.

That's just my .02. I guess it doesn't really matter where you go; Everywhere is a little different and you can always find something "Beautiful" "Romantic" and "Interesting" about the place if you really try :)

Love London also - and the places around London - Always loved English history -
Plus Paris - and the Chateau districts with Chinonceau(sp) and some others, the Southern Coast of France/Spain/French and Italian Riviera they call it -

Loved Barcelona and the architecture - so fanciful

Plus Luxor in Egypt - so many sites close it it when you stay at the Hotel there.

Schilpario, the mountain village in northern Italy where my grandmother was born. But of course, I'm prejudiced. If you go, bring your phrasebook. No one speaks English except old Professor Spada.

Hmmmmmm! I wonder if people from Europe, Australia, Germany, . . . would offer places in the USA as answers to this question??

I find it interesting that no one offers anyplace in our beautiful country as best of something?????

There are so many "best places" in this world. My most resent was the South Georgia Islands on the way to Antarctica. The penguins and seals were just amazing. I feel truly fortunate to have been there.
