    Australia for the next Ashes series, Peru as I have relatives there, one of the smaller pacific islands to relax, Portugal (never been) and probably Malta as everyone I've known who has gone there loves it.

    I have been India before a couple of times, so it not on my list, antartica be cool but will prefer the hot springs in iceland and northern lights.
    What I meant was that you dont get penguins in Iceland or svalbard, and you cannot get tigers in Africa.

    and unlimited time?

    USA: hit vegas and gamble! then go around the whole of US!

    Canada: if I'm in USA, might as well drop by Canada, eh?

    Japan: apparently it's very very expensive there, so an unlimited budget would be great here. Wanna visit Akihabara.

    China: To see the pandas? Haha.

    Philippines: Would love to tour my home country. So many places I've never been to!

    Syria - it seems like an interesting country
    Nepal/Bhutan - to see the Himalayas and all that jazz

    Japan - just to experience the culture.
    Canada - don't really know why, it's just looks really nice.
    New Zealand - would love to do all the thrill-seeker stuff on offer.

    Just out of curiosity, why is Australia so popular?
    (Not that I don't like it. Lived here for 8 years... I like it, but I wouldn't put it on my ABSOLUTE TOP list of places to go see.)

    Korea (for the culture, food, sceneries, etc.)
    Italy (pretty much the same reasons as above)
    Mongolia (Have always wanted to go there to excavate fossils, etc. Probably will never be able to though D
    Antarctica (Sceneries and wildlife. Enough said.)
    Brazil (THE AMAZON!!!)

    hmm. I'd be tempted to go for bigger countires simply because there is more to see! Equally, getting a mix of climates and scenery is important for me.

    Dubai - awesome city
    USA - lots to see and do
    Some tropical island - maybe nauru? Fiji?
    China - culturally different and spectacular scenery.
    Brazil - cities and amazon

    damn missed out antarctica... can i have 6? :P

    EDIT: if we're only doing places we haven't been to before, it would be antarctica over tropical island.

    It does have the great barrier reef. Also its just very big and got lots of scenery that we aren't used to here in the UK. I do agree though - i think in this thread people are being overly influenced by the fact that it is a very common place to go, something which is largely due to language and cultural similarities! I'd certainly rather go there than Italy though :erm:

    China - to see the Great Wall of China, the culture, the food, the wildlife, so many reasons!
    UAE - mainly because I want to go to Dubai.
    Brazil - would love to see Rio de Janeiro (especially the carnival)
    New Zealand - the scenery is really nice, and I want to try bungee jumping as well!
    Singapore - just really love it there, despite having been quite a few times before!

    Well, as you know there is a hell of a lot to see and do there. The Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsundays, Fraser Island, Cape Tribulation, the Red Centre (Uluru, Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon), the famous railway across Nullarbor Plain from Adelaide to Perth, Kakadu National Park, the Blue Mountains, the surfing in Tasmania & the east & west coasts, the Bungle Bungles, Lake Eyre, the distinctive features of places like Sydney & Melbourne... plus other people are attracted by the wildlife, all the adventure sports you can do, and the Aboriginal culture, and of course the weather is also a great draw

    I didn't put it down in my list, but that's just because I tried to avoid putting down any country I've been to before, to make it easier for myself.

    BTW i'm not including the countries i've been to:

    Japan-amazing culture, I want to see the sights and practice my Japanese
    India-Bali in particular, Again,to see the sights and learn more about the culture and tradition
    Kenya-I want to go on a safari
    Thailand-great beaches and culture
    Egypt-To see the pyramids and sphinx, and stay in a nice beach resort

    But ideally i'd like to travel the whole world, they are my top remaining ones. But I want to go back to Brazil, as you can't do it all in one holiday
