I've always dreamed of traveling the world and exploring different countries, but there are so many of them! Please help me decide by giving me some reasons why I should visit your country!

#1

You should come to Lithuania if you enjoy lush forests, old architecture, and great food! We also have lots of lakes, rivers. You can go to the coast and see the Baltic Sea.

You should visit Ireland because, well... It's Ireland!
Ireland doesn't really need selling because if you don't already know it has the best people, the best scenery, and the food... Oh the food!!!
Anyone that has ever been to Ireland will tell you... You should go!

I was really surprised to see how few nations are represented here. Although I am Dutch American, I hope I can do the nations below justice from my limited experience of their natural, cultural, and historical beauty.

First and foremost, GREECE. The foundation of the modern world, of civilisation, democracy, and all that mythology, Greece is a historical gem that knows no equal in the first world. The cuisine is an aquired taste for some, but the people are charming to a fault, affable, and everyman's friend.

Second, Italy. Where Greece gave rise to organised thinking, Rome gave rise to organised logistics. The roads Rome built can still be traced from the air, and connect almost all of europe over land, making for a fascinating tourist route.

The third has already been mentioned, but bears repetition as a cuisine, which is almost a trip unto itself. Both Italy and France can be toured gastronomically and oenologically for WEEKS on end without a moment's boredom.

Fourth is actually a forest rather than one nation, and encompasses Germany, Poland, even extending into Lithuania, likewise mentioned above. Further north the belt continues into the former soviet union, before tapering south of siberia. This belt is the largest continuous forest on the planet, and the sheer scale is something to behold.

One cannot mention Germany or indeed Belgium without beer, and both of their magnificent history with trains and waterworks. Both have culinary delights found nowhere else, and both have frankly staggering artistic output. Mahler alone is worth a month of touring, similar in scope to Keats or Shakespeare in the UK. Other delights in europe are the flowers and tidal works of the Netherlands, the horses and cuisine of Spain, the Danish unbelievable hotdog variety, and the sheer power of nature's fury in Iceland.

Across the Med you can see Morocco and Egypt, although with the climate changing in the direction it is, that territory is not only becoming progressively less habitable, but also exponentially more dangerous. West and south Africa hold the true jewels of nature, with Senegal and Mali offering the warmest of french influences to introduce you to the desert biome, and Tanzania, Congo, and Zambia as the heart of the savannah biome. Africa has some of the most magnificent displays of nature's beauty, but the political situation can be rather fluid, so always check with your embassy for up-to-date information.
Please do not visit Madagaskar unless you enjoy jungle trekking and can be disciplined about it, as this is one of our planet's most fragile ecosystems. Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but pictures.

Beyond Africa there is south and southeast asia, with it's marvelous colour and impossibly rich history. India alone is a lifetime of experiences, as is Thailand, Myanmar, Tibet, and Vietnam. If you've time for only one I would heartily recommend Malaysia as they have a unique three-way split population of Malaysian, Indian, and Chinese influences; each with equally long and lustrous history, cuisine, and culture. My five years in Kuala Lumpur were the highlight of my youth.

Further into Asia there is of course China, but I cannot advise going there at the moment with the kerfuffle america is stirring up. Hong Kong is China Light, as it were, but is VERY intense for newcomers. Sights, sounds, smells, even the sheer number of languages can be a lot to process. Just let it wash over you, and you'll feel right at home in ten days flat.

Over to the east you have Indonesia and of course Japan, both of which are just impossible to do justice by anyone but a native. Japan in particular is utterly apart from the rest of our species, and in my view a cut above the rest. Cuisine, history, culture, art, even their infrastructure is a marvel to behold. If I had to pick one city, I'd say go see Fukuoka.

Wherever you go -- take the most scenic route possible and take as much time as possible. Get off the main path and see as much as you can -- EVERYWHERE. Read books, looks things up on the internet, talk to people before you go, talk to everyone when you are there. You will regret that you didn't travel farther and longer no matter how much you cram into your life. Look at travel shows, do your research, always have an alternate plan for bad weather, delays. Travel will turn you into an entirely different person!

Firstly, Pakistan. No, we are not a desert filled with bearded guys with turbans and rifles - thankfully the bearded guys with turbans and rifles are gone. Though violence was a huge problem between 2008 and 2014, we have improved significantly. In fact, Karachi, once the most dangerous city in the country, is now safer than Mumbai, India. We have many national parks, the street life in Karachi is out of this world, Islamabad is well, Islamabad, Lahore’s fashion is best on the Indian subcontinent, and then we come to the territory of Gilgit-Baltistan, where the natural beauty is unmatched. Both Karakoram and Himalayan mountains, home of K2 (second tallest mountain after Everest), turquoise rivers, so many trees, peace and serenity through and throughout. And because almost no one visits Pakistan, Gilgit-Baltistan is really quiet. Additional fun fact: Pakistan’s Parliament Building in Islamabad, home of both the Senate and National Assembly, is the world’s first government building fully powered by renewable energy!

Secondly, Washington, D.C., USA. So many museums of history, lots of memorials and sightseeing opportunities, and the city is beautiful when the cherry blossoms bloom in late March and early April. Love Washington!

I didn’t even mention the food! Karachi’s cuisine is the most diverse, as the local Sindhi flavors are mixed with Bengali, Afghani, some Arab and some Persian food. Balochistan’s food is heavily inspired by Iran, and the dishes in Gilgit-Baltistan are unique with the flavors they use. Apricot oil is a staple ingredient across those dishes.

In Canada we have the world's largest boreal forest, 2 mountain ranges (Rockies in the west and Aleutians in east), tundra in the north, prairies in the centre. Manitoba has countless lakes with thousands of swimmable beaches.
Our people are warm, friendly and accommodating. Need directions or want to ask a question and we'll become your personal tour guide lol.
We're surrounded by 3 oceans: Pacific, Atlantic and Arctic. There's something for everyone.
Our winters can be harsh in the prairies, and very hot in the summer, but if you can't handle risking -30C or lower or +30C and higher, British Columbia is usually mild and rainy, southern Ontario has milder temperatures.
In summers we do get some heavy storms and about 60 tornadoes a year if storm chasing is up your alley.
If you like winter sports, we have lots of manmade rinks, but even more special 2 of the longest natural skating rinks on the Assiniboine River in Winnipeg and Rideau Canal In Ottawa that divides Ontario and Quebec.
If French is your main language you'll feel right at home in Quebec, and there are French districts in any of the main cities.
Canada is heavily multicultural. Every tradition is embraced. We love to learn and experience different cultures around the world. Our arts and entertainment community is huge.

There's plenty of professional and junior sports matches to go see. Despite hockey being massively popular, lacrosse is actually our national sport. Along with American football, soccer football, baseball, curling, figure skating, etc.

If art is more your taste we got a pretty unique music scene that's quite folks-y. Festivals galore, especially in Manitoba. There's Winnipeg Folk Festival that's on at Bird's Hill Park, a city wide Folklorama where you can explore different cultures for a week.

Niagara Falls is beautiful. A honeymoon mecca and it's got a main street that looks like Universal Studios, imo. You can go on a ferry ride that goes close to the falls and a tunnel system behind the falls.

I could write a novel. I'll leave it here. Canada is just an amazing country.

The US, but be prepared--50 states, each with their own identity, and not all of them contiguous. The land area is 3.8 million miles. You can drive the 48 contiguous states (3,500 miles/5,633 kilometers coast-to-coast), but will need to make special trips to Alaska (via Canada) and Hawaii (2,500 miles/4,023 kilometers from the mainland). If you would like to see the US territories as well, you will need to make additional travel accommodations to visit American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Come to Québec ! Lots to do! Biggest french speaking state in North America and home of the poutine (La Banquise in Montréal for a good selection of poutine). Furthermore, if you're a history buff: Montréal, Québec and Wendake are great place to visit some awesome museum and historical sites.

Foodies ? Le Pied de Cochon in Montréal of chef Martin Picard is a representation of Quebec cuisine: generous, no waste, inviting, no bull***t. Depending on when you come, we have PLENTY of food festivals: Poutineweek, Phoque-fest (for seal meat), Mtl à Table (to discover new restaurants without spending a fortune).

Fan of beers or ciders? Lots of brewery and microbrewery all over the province to discover. My favorite is in Saint-Gédéon in the beautiful region of the Lac St-Jean. If available, try the Stoychev (honouring a swimmer of the same name who dominated the crossing of the lake for years).

Nature ? Tons of parks, national parks, rivers, lake to discover. Go to Tadoussac to see the whales, a small excursion in the Saguenay fjord, camping in one of the many national parks or even just a stroll on Mount Royal overlooking Montréal, park designed by the same guy who designed Central Park.

A good show ? Tons of festivals again, a Scottish comedian called Montréal a city with ADD, always needing to be entertained. Just for Laughs for comedy, Jazz Festival, Osheaga, Winter Carnival in Quebec etc.

The People ? Well you're talking to one. We are nice, like any Canadians, love a good time and enjoy helping others with anything. Don't be afraid to ask and if you put a little french word here and there (merci, excusez-moi j'ai besoin d'aide etc.), you'll get the super smiley VIP treatment ;-)

Just a little warning, our province is big ! Don't do the same mistakes my friend from France did... trying to go from Montréal to Québec to Tadoussac, to the Lac St-Jean and back to Montréal in a week-end. They thought it was not that big of a trip and hope to visit some museums in Québec, whale-watching in Tadoussac, beach day at the lake St-Jean. They did none of those activities because they spent their time driving from one place to another. Plan your travel carefully and look up Google maps for traveling time estimate by car.

Hope it was a good pitch, could go on forever. À bientôt les Pandas !

Hungary - the country of hot springs. You can find spas everywhere in the country, some of them with beautiful old architecture, and some of them are modern. There are also Turkish style spas, which shows the influence of the 150 years' Turkish occupation to Hungarian culture.
There is also the Great Hungarian Plain, where you can encounter sceneries you cannot find anywhere else.
The capital, Budapest has a wonderful night view and beautiful monuments like the Buda Castle, the Chain Bridge, the Heroes' Square, the Bazilika, the Opera House, the Széchenyi Thermal Bath, etc.
There are pretty small cities where you can wonder around on the beautiful streets, like Szentendre, Sopron or Vác.
The Hungarian cuisine is delicious, try goulash soup, pörkölt, lángos, chimney cake (kürtős kalács), and you must try Hungarian wine and pálinka (a type of alcohol). I could go on with the list but it is getting a bit long :) Maybe this video can add to the explanation

Also, there is stunning nature, and you can go from skiing on a snowy mountain to swimming in the sea or a lake within an hour. Towns like Mostar, Stolac, Visegrad, and others have impressive UNESCO heritage sites, many belonging to our unique Bosnian medieval culture of the Bosnian Bogomils, a secluded Christian order designated as heretics by the "regular" church for their lack of appreciation for church authorities, their tolerance for other religions and rejection of dogmatic beliefs...

Austria.
In the middle of europe. Here you can find different types of landscapes. There are mountains (Alps), glaciers, lakes, woods and plains. Most cities are quite small except Vienna. You can find different kind of museums nearly everywhere. There are nice hiking trails. (However PLEASE ask someone about the trip bevore you go there without any preperation. And sandals are not suitable for any mountain trip!)
Nearly every local (at least the younger ones) will be able to communicate in English.
On the other hand, there is quite a lot of tourism at popular places. (Even at the Zentralfriedhof in Vienna.) This means it is easy to access nice places but may be crowded.
Mostly at Vienna, but also around the country you can find a lot of the treasures of the Habsburger on display. (Beginning with jewellery, collections of stuffed animals, clocks, stones, artwork (a LOT of different artwork there are more than two museums filled with pictures), books, weaponry and so on.) And there are palaces, castles and a lot of buildings from different areas.
You can get some nice food too, however even if it is a small country the food can differ from place to place.
Around Christmas there are nice christmas markets all around the country and most places decorate their main streets and squares nicely.
However it can be quite crowded there.

So I know a lot of people crap on America but I strongly recommend it for a good trip. You can travel the country quite easily and comfortably while experiencing vastly unique and different food and cultures.

You can start off in NY and see a vast city with all the food of the world in on place. Go down down the east coast and have amazing seafood and smaller town appeal. You will run into Dutch, French, and strong German roots until you hit Florida.

In Florida you can experience Latinx culture and vibrant food, a wild night life, and beautiful beaches and oceans. Cross over to Texas and feel like you are in a new country with personalities and culture. Eat the BBQ but also the amazing Korean and Indian cuisine. Once bored there you can travel north and see the Midwest.

The Midwest can seem boring but there are beautiful mountain ranges, vast fields, and history. Keep going north and you will run into Chicago, Detroit, and the Great Lakes that look like an ocean. Keep going west!

You can travel through Colorado and the Dakotas seeing amazing nature, you can continue and travel into New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, and Nevada for deserts, new cultures, and cuisine. Go stark north and run into Washington, Oregon, and California. California is a state where you can snowboard at the start of the morning and travel down to surf in the evening. California’s cuisine needs no mention but is a great experience.

Being able to freely travel between states, singular currency, readily available lodging, and relative safety make the US a great country to visit!

Brazil is full of warm and kind people. And no, Brazil is not just Rio, samba, soccer, favelas and the Amazon, as most people think. On each corner of the country, you'll see different cultures and probably different temperatures, as it is colder in the south and hotter in the northeast. I recommend visiting some beaches in the northeast states. But if you’re not much into beaches and wants more of the urban cultural experience, then go to the south and southeast states.

We have a lot of beautiful forests and some mountains to hike through, despite the Alps in the south there is also the "Harz" in the north that can be traveled by foot, bike, lifts or with a steam locomotive.
With access to the North- and the Baltic Sea there are also many interesting locations for a beach vacation available. One of the natural highlights in the Northern Sea is the "Wadden Sea" that can be experienced during ebbs. If the sea is too much water, we have a lot of rivers that can be discovered by boat or ship

For history fans we can provide a lot of museums for any kind of topic and castles all over the country, and many cities still have their medival core preserved. Science nerds also will have a great time here, as a lot of exhibitions for all kinds of fields can be found.
Culinary variety is something we can provide too, from regional classics like "White Sausage" in Bavaria to international cuisine from South- and East Europe, Asia and Africa.

If urban adventure are more up somebodies lane then the cities can be very interesting. Mentioning Munich, Cologne, Hamburg, Hannover and Berlin (avoid this one) is mandatory, but the smaller cities in the more rural areas are also worth a visit. Despite not being the most reliable methode that can be easily done by train, either with regional lines or our high speed trains called ICE (Intercity Express).

There's a North- / South divide when it comes to the people, with the southeners being more open and jolly while the northeners seem a bit more practical and short worded. (Generally spoken)
But the majority are kind people and interested in meeting tourists from other countries, despite of our reputation. English is a mandatory language and many people will also understand another language on a basic level at least. In the eastern part it's also not unusal to find people that speak russian due to our history.

Sorry for the wall of text.

Come to Lagos State, Nigeria and you'll see the true representation of Africa. Lagos is a very diverse state where you'll meet people from every state in Nigeria. If you go to the right places, you'll find people from of various nationalities living and working together. There are nice and beautiful places to go to but the true beauty of Lagos State is in its people, culture, history and cuisine.

Immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of Lagos State and you'll hear amazing stories from folks from various walks of life. You might also make friends for life.

We have over 30 beaches here because Lagos is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean but I'll advise you to visit the private beaches only. They're cleaner and less crowded.

We also have many festivals like Eyo (masquerade festival), Lagos Trade fair etc. You can also visit sites where the Atlantic Slave trade took place.

If you're into fashion and clubbing, Lagos is for you. There are more nightclubs (strip clubs too) and fashion houses than I can count. Since the majority of Lagosians are under 40, it is definitely the city of the young.

Oh god don't come here. We Americans are pretty damn stupid lol. Ok we aren't all bad. If you have a dire need to come to the states then check out Rubino's pizza. 2643 e main st. Bexley Ohio 43209.

Best cracker thin crust pizza in the world. ( Yes it's a shameless promo. I worked there for years😃)

The only thing I know about you is that you want to travel the world and explore different countries so I'll say you should visit the US because 1) We're part of the world and 2) We're a little bit of all of it.

Come to Spain, there’s so much to see and so much to eat. Don’t forget the north, Basque Country, Cantabria, Asturias and Galicia. From Galicia is very easy to go to Portugal. So much to see, so much to eat, with probably the nicest people in the world.

Indonesia was already mentioned above, but i will add, go further than Bali. Yes Bali is amazing but try to go to other places. Indonesia has plenty to offer. Beaches, mountains, lakes, culture. Go to Jogjakarta (not Jakarta) to see Borobudur, the biggest buddhist temple in south east asia. Go to Raja Ampat to dive. Or go to see Komodo at the national park.

No one mention China. Despite the bad publicity in the west, i had the chance to live there for over 10 years. It's an interesting country with plenty to see. You will find something for everyone. Culture, nature, food, high technology, party. Still the safest country i have ever been. Shanghai is very foreigner friendly and can be a good start. Most signs are in pinyin, and people are generally more friendly towards foreigner who don't speak Chinese. From there, you can go around, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Wuyi. Famous for their lake and water way. Go further up to Beijing for great wall and forbidden palace. Further north brings you to Harbin and around. Go north west to Gansu to find the traces of silk road and the gobi dessert. Go south to Yunnan. The downside is google based app doesn't really work there, thank you to great firewall of China.

Texas, we have rolling hills, beaches, forest, swamp, deserts, plains and mountains all in one state. Great food and warm people work cool events! Amazing music, wineries, breweries, great nightlife, gorgeous wildflowers are left to bloom along the side of the highways in spring. You can enjoy the variety of cultures, food and lifestyles all over the state. Yes we might be a little (cough) more state pros than all other states combined but once you look into that vast Texas sky, eat amazing TexMex, and feel the warmth of a genuine Texans smile, you’ll know it’s all pretty true. It is worth all the hype.

The U.S.. Granted most things are a mess and there are definitely some places you should avoid, and you better hope that you don't need to go to the hospital while you're here because it will cost you a fortune, but all that aside there are some really nice places here. Sure there are lots of people who fit into the typical ignorant American tropes but there lots of nice people to. What's more the natural wonders here are incredible. If for nothing else come for the national parks. Bryce canyon, zion, arches, are all unforgettable, and the amount of ecological diversity is stunning, not just how many different places there are but how different they are from each other. If you visit the U.S. do it for the national parks.

I live in the United States of America, in the desert outside of Tucson, Arizona. You should visit my country because there are some of the most amazing natural things to see.

In Arizona we have the most awe inspiring thunderstorms that you could possibly want to see, hear, feel and smell, yes smell. When the rains hit the desert there is no other smell in the world like it. It reaches into you and pulls at your heart.

We have sunsets that are so beautiful they want to make you weep they are that beautiful.

We have spiders so big and hairy you want to put a saddle on them and ride them around.

We have rattlesnakes meaner than my evil twin.

We have lizards that look like candy corn and have the bite of a bulldog.

And that's just in Arizona!

Sorry but you should be more specific what you want to do. Visit the usual tourist attractions or spend some time in a country and discover the culture?
Anyway not mentioned yet is Luxemburg or Croatia, Hungary, Denmark. Is there a country in the world not worth visiting? Russia, don't go to Moscow but st. Petersburg. I hope you will one day be able to make this dream come true and just travel around the world. Just don't be one of those annoying influencers with artificial videos.

Come to Alaska in the summer and stay for 7 days and 1 night.

But really, you get mountains and oceans, volcanos and bears. Dog sledding if you are into that. You can go see whales and orcas and if you are an outdoorsy person, you can hike mountains and see mountain goats.

Bangladesh! Though not many people even know that there is a country named Bangladesh...

However, here you can visit the longest sea beach of the world called C*x's Bazar, the biggest mangrove forest of the world called Sundarbans, mountains, canals, lakes and many more...

Also you can enjoy Hilsha fish, Jackfruit, various types of dried fish, pithas... the list goes on...

Also you can have bamboo as an ethnic cuisine or just raw bamboo, if you are a real Panda...🐼

As I see we're not yet represented here - come visit Israel! It's a gorgeous country with thousands of years of complex history, and has historical and religious sites that even if you don't follow any particular religion should be experienced for the deep cultural meanings they carry (usually for more than one religion, nation or people; like I said, complex).
Also, we have lovely beaches for sunbathing and diving, mountains for hiking, deserts for driving through (or hiking, just not in summer), and cities for shopping and museums and nightlife - all spread over a country small enough that you can drive across it in a day. The food is spectacular, the coffee kicks ass, and most everyone speaks English to some degree. Summer is long, winter is short, we're doing well on Covid vaccinations.

A State is a political unit that has sovereignty over an area of territory and the people within it. ... ' A country is simply another word for State. The United States can be referred to as either a 'country' or a 'State. ' People use the terms interchangeably. Thank you.
