haha i know this is such a stupid question but im gunna ask it anyway! What do you think would be the best country and city to live in.. try your best to narrow it down to a few. I know theres alot of good things about each country but just try your best.

being from thge U.S myself i think that is a good place because of its fame (Hollywood, Newyork, Beverly hills etc)

but probably the best to live in would be Australia because of its warm climate (depending on how far North you are) its great sunny beaches and friendly people.. and its not to crowded.

Canada is also good

and also say which place you would most like to visit again... for me it would have to be Bali Indonesia... well i suppose not with all the bombings and controversial drug findings but the actual place is just amazing, theres so much to do and all the beaches are so beautiful.

id like to live in japan because i find the women extremely beautiful. the culture is also very interesting and there is an interesting history to learn about.

maybe also australia as the climate is most favourable. plus good surf, amazing concrete skateparks everywhere, byo restaurants, decent work opportunities etc.

canada, new zealand, ireland would all be good too... stable, safe, friendly.

joey :)

i'd most like to return to cambodia and laos... both countries are beautiful, moving, friendly, exotic, reasonably undiscovered (in some areas such as ratanakiri) in comparison to thailand, and easy enough to travel in.

i would also like to re-visit new york as i went there when i was 13 and thought it was cool.

joey:)

Why does everyone pick australia, they only have one season? And aussies have never seen snow. Snow is good, you should try it sometimes.

I like to live in Sweden or Germany.

Hey!
Until now it's definitly Thailand for me! It's an amazing country, lot's of vast jungle, beeeeeautiful beaches, clear water, breathtaking views, abundant wildlife, friendly and 'smiley' people, impressive temples, warm religion, terrific food, nice language......I spent a month crossing Th. from north to south and since then I've lost my heart....My pics are never far away as I still often show them. ;)
I think I would choose Chiang Mai as favourite city (north). Don't know why, but it felt right, just what I needed. Nicely hidden between the mountains where you can do some 'jungle'trekking to the mountaintribes. The only thing I could start missing there is the absence of water (sea/ocean)...certainly now I'm hooked on diving. It's not that I live in the proximity of water here in B, but if I would leave my home to live somewhere abroad, the factor 'water' would be important. But Chiang Mai to the islands (south) takes about 1.5; max 2 days travelling by train, so that's not too bad either he...
But, like I said, this until now. Maybe next week I'll visit another city or town or country that steels my heart away (again;))...there are soooooooo many places to see and to discover!

Grz,

I've lived in both Switzerland and the United States, and I've enjoyed both very much. however, if I were to chose one over the other I would have to go with Switzerland. Simply put, it's the most beautiful country in Europe and the quality of living is better than in the United States. Although most Swiss eat a lot of dairy products and fat filled foot, they remain healthy by engaging in the multiple outdoor activities that Switzerland has to offer. It is so easy to just hop on a bike and ride miles without coming across one car. The only negative about Switzerland is the rain. Yes, it rains quite a bit.

If I could chose to revisit one country, I'd chose Poland. It's amazing to see the difference between Warsaw and Krakow for example. the war left little of the old Warsaw architecture but hardly damaged that of Krakow. And it's cheap.

Also, I'd revisit Croatia again. Unbelievable place, especially Dubrovnik.
