Africa
From gorillas in Rwanda to the melting snows of Kilimanjaro and the best “sundowners” for every game drive in Africa – we’ve been there, done that and now want to talk about it. As if you have to ask – we love fine South African wines like Klein Constantia, Thelema and Vergelegen and like visiting the wine estates of Jordan Vineyards and Warwick Estates!

Americas
Canada's indigenous, French and British traditions gives it a complex three-dimensional character that is the second largest country on earth, spanning six of the world's 24 time zones and could fit most of Europe within its borders. How about that? Canada offers an abundance of well-known cities, attractions, parks and regions that make for its history, people, landscape and natural beauty to get to know you.

The Caribbean is likely the most intensively visited tourism destination in the world -- you arrive intense and leave relaxed. Whether the rum, the waters, the sun or the hurricanes, there's every reason why this part of the world is known to us all.

This tropical isthmus that connects North America to South America is an ecological paradise, offering adventure deep inside its amazing rainforests, string of volcanic mountain ranges as well as bursting with historic landmarks, restaurants and vibrant nightlife. And for the the real adventurous -- there's Mosquito Gulf!

We finally found the Bay of Pigs for everyone (aka Playa Girón), and now we’re on to valuable information about cigars, rum, old cars and so much more.

With several hundred miles of coastline extending down both the Pacific and the Caribbean, this country is a popular summer retreat destination and much more: the countryside is rich in archaeological treasures with pyramids, ruins of ancient cities and great stone carvings of ancient gods standing as testament to a country once ruled by the Aztecs and Mayans. It forms a bridge between the slick first-world North America and the more chaotic Latin tempo of its southerly neighbors, yet its people remain warm and friendly.

South America is the fourth largest continent with incredible natural beauty, awesome scenery and sightseeing wonders. While only a handful of its 12 independent countries are generally known for tourism, those that do venture here experience a part of the world like no other. See you on the Amazon and how about that Chilean wine?

The “Frozen South” (very distantly related to the Frozen North) is where all the action is and trust us – it’s way underneath “Down Under.” It’s too cold to post very often but the information is very hot!

Asia
Asia is the favorite destination of FlyerTalkers. So it should come as no surprise that they have asked and talked about golden palaces, ancient temples, jungle treks, garden bistros, seaside cafés, classic noodle stands and where the best hawker centers are. And don’t forget the threads about Angkor Wat, smoldering volcanoes and of course, where the best pristine beaches are.

There’s much more to China than the terracotta warriors, hiking the Great Wall, seeing the “Birds Nest” in Beijing, exploring the old Silk Road and wrapping up a slice of Peking Duck. In fact, as soon as we sip some more tea, let’s get started reading these threads and much, much more … all from our members who have been there and back.

From the Star Ferry to the top of the peak without stopping for dim sum, this city ranks on everyone's 'visit' list. Head over to Macau for a taste of Portuguese and to see the Vegas of Asia.

There’s more than images of elephants and snake charmers in this vast country. You can see the Taj, Raj(asthan) and the Third Eye of Shiva even with time left to enjoy curry in a hurry.

There's nothing 'Lost in Translation' here as we talk about the sights, sounds and the visuals of this gateway to the Orient. Tip: slurp the noodles and gift the kimono.

As one of Asia's most intriguing destinations, there’s more to talk about than the Singapore Sling, (it’s often a popular destination for mileage runners) and thus, members have learned where the best pan-asia foods are, where to embark on a night safari with Bengal tigers, where the best fortune teller is among the Chinese temples and of course, where to find those rare Shan and Thai Buddha statues amid the colonial architecture.

Done that: elephant trekking in Chiang Mai, tuk-tuks and long-tail boats in Bangkok, beach time in Phuket. Not done that: Phi Phi, street food, Bangkok tailor. Sawasdee – it’s all inside.

Germany as we know it is more than bratwurst, Bauhaus, cobbled streets, music festivals, hiking in the Black Forest, Oktoberfest, , the Zeppelin Museum, castles, baroque architecture, picturesque villages, beer gardens, medieval towns, half-timbered houses along the Romantic Road, vineyards along the Rhine River, the Alps and Wagner’s opera’s.

Italy as we know it is more than a hike among olive groves or the steep area of Cinque Terre, riding the cable cars over Mont Blanc, the best pasta, the Vatican Museums, driving the Great Dolomite Road, Tuscany, the grand hotels of Rome, little-known trattoria’s, partying at the spring Carnevale in Venice, cruising the Brenta Canal and the Lake District. Now, do we have your interest?

Russia is the world's biggest country and has the world’s longest railroads. It also has gold-domed churches, historical palaces, striped cathedrals, Fabergé’s and the treasures of the Hermitage Museum and the Kremlin. And oh yea, is the home of Ivan the Terrible and Tchaikovsky. But the most popular question? How to get the Russian Visa!

Then this is all talked about in the lands of "no worries" - Australia, New Zealand, Guam, Tahiti, Fiji and the South Pacific's other islands which seem to have it all.
