And yes Panama City, Florida is full of drunk Americans.

Not much to do except goto bars or restaurants. Beaches are rubbish there as well all stones and rock.
My brain hurts
You can pretty much do anything except skiing in Tenerife
And there are decent beaches.

Big time. Lots of college kids and it is fairly close to Atlanta. But the local businesses are trying to curb it as a spring break mecca like Ft. Lauderdale has successfully done. Seems like the one week of insane drinking and partying ruins many a hotel room (they try to pack as many as possible in them)and is doing more harm than good and not worth the damage to the reputation for the rest of the year.

Interesting list. My son lives in Singapore and he loves it. Incredibly clean city with virtually no crime. He calls me frequently while walking to his university job and I hear lots of birds along his way. Beautiful birds in cages on display is a big hobby there. And he feels very safe even late at night. In August he is moving to Kazakhstan and the change in climate is going to be a real adjustment.

Seoul,Korea.I went there several years ago,it was boring,and I really dislike Korean food.With the same budget,I'd rather go to Japan.
Hong Kong is another place I am not interested in going again anytime soon.I don't really think it has that many things to offer for tourists.
Oh and Monaco.Is there anything worth seeing if you don't gamble?

Saudi Arabia actually doesn't want you as a tourist unless you're a Muslim going there on a group tour for Hadj pilgrimage and have a letter from your local iman describing you as in good standing with the faih.
