Hey, the only place in Poland (I take Poland because I live here) I know is definitely worth visiting is Niemodlin Polish Castle

I have been there myself and the Castle is Amazing the guide was very nice and they answer all your questions you can also take as many photos you can manage
There is a nice hotel 10 -30meters away in future there will be a few hotel rooms in the Castle. The castle itself have very unique mysterious atmosphere,
The best place to visit for your holidays.
More information you can find on the main website: Moderator cut: link removed, please read our terms of service
And greetings from Poland!

I suppose that as London is my home town, I can hardly say that I've travelled there, but it's beautiful IMO.
Paris, I could walk around it all day and never get bored, but I'd be totally wasted by 5.00 p.m., a knockout.
The city of Murcia in southern Spain, please take my word for it, don't go there and spoil it for me.
Savannah GA. it is a true gem, history on every corner and in every square.

It's hard to choose. I live in New Mexico and I'm astounded by the beauty here every day. It is a different kind of beauty and some folks don't see it...you have to like the desert. I just returned from a winter trip to Grand Canyon -- I've been there before but never experienced it with snow and it was outstanding. The big trees and towering forest in Sequoia National Park are amazingly beautiful. I liked Umbria in Italy -- rolling green hills and ancient hill towns. Years ago we took a circle trip out of Vancouver BC by rail heading north and then west along the Skeena River to Prince Rupert and then down the inside passage by ferry to Victoria and back to Vancouver. Almost all of that would be as pretty as any National Park in the US.

My husband and I shared an amazing day on the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall about 90 minutes outside Beijing last year. There were very, very few people there that day. The sky was blue, there were very few clouds, and we snacked on crackers and drank ice cold Tsingtao beer while perched on a steep stair, just taking it all in. It was a bucket list item for me and at some point my damn eyes started watering and stuff. We sent my sister in Oregon a cell phone video right there on the spot and she said it made her so happy to feel for a moment like she was there with us. One of the best travel moments ever.

I also had a similar experience sitting on a park bench very early in the morning on the Riverwalk in New Orleans many years ago, listening to Paul Simon's Graceland on my Walkman, watching barges silently float by. Just surreal.

Third favorite was waking up very early one morning while staying in Badlands National Park and taking a stroll. I came across a field with literally hundreds of cottontail rabbits bounding around everywhere. I felt like I was in a Lewis Carroll book. Nobody could have believed the number of bunnies just all around me.

Ahhh that's just good stuff.

I can't imagine Taiwan being beautiful in the early 70s. Maybe in the mountains or on the coast, but the cities must be ghastly back then...even worse than now, which is pretty bad already.
