Let's say that you have two weeks for a vacation and you were to pick a city/region to explore, what would it be?

I'm not talking about a long roadtrip. This is more like enjoying a particular locale and doing short maybe day trips around it.

No budget considerations. Just interest.

I've always wanted to go to Ethiopia and be there for Easter or Christmas for the Coptic/Orthodox observances. It is probably the oldest Christian country on Earth I took a couple classes in college that covered Ethiopian history and I've been fascinated with the place ever since. It is a little isolated but there are tours.

I'd have to be careful where I go because two weeks in some places would make it hard to come back.....Umbria, Ireland, Tahiti, etc.

If I had three weeks and a huge bank account I'd like to do the rail tour over the old Silk Road from Moscoe to Beijing.

No long road trips and no budget constraints? That sounds like New York City to me. Or maybe Washington DC. Or London. Lots of stuff to do inside those cities that you could easily fill up two weeks, and easy public transport for day trips out of the city, with tons of great things just a bit out of the city.

(Personally, I agreed with the South Africa thing, but you said no long road trips)

Two weeks isn't enough time to explore, but I guess I'd say Kuching, Borneo... you can get to much of the countryside in a day or so from there. Not a road trip since I'd need to fly.

Otherwise, no where really... I've explored all of New England.

I'd go to Egypt. Or Italy. I'd pick a certain neighborhood & get to know it, frequent a favorite cafe every day, become like a local of sorts. I wouldn't want to just bounce around from area to area, I don't think you really get a feel for a place if you're too busy trying to see everything at once.
