    Edit: how could i forget: Netherlands, holland?

    we (i, my Mother and my stepfather) are going to take a vacation in Punta Cana. Our Flight is on Thursday. (10 hours flight). I'm really excited.
    Was somebody already there? Could you recommend something?

    Hm...
    Spain: Mallorca and Barcelona. Both nice, but for different reasons. Barcelona is great for sightseeing, Mallorca is great for relaxing.
    Greece: Rhodes, Andros, Poros and Athens (Athens only 2 nights - the others about a week each)
    Singapore: Been all over many times, my dad lives there :) Good and cheap food.
    Indonesia: Took a 4 day trip there once when I was in Singapore. Good food, and everything is cheap.
    Thailand: Phuket and Phi Phi Island, 3 nights each place. Phi Phi was pretty nice, Phuket was a bit too busy and touristy for my liking.
    France: Nice. Didn't really like that place, the beach was bad with big rocks and expensive sunbeds, and it was really busy there. But the food was pretty good.

    I think that's all of them. I'd like to go to US/Canada, Japan and most places in Europe some time.
    My favorite place right now is Poros, I wouldn't mind living there. Very relaxing atmosphere, lots of restaurants nearby serving all sorts of food for a reasonable price (it is a pretty small town so everything is close together), and a decent beach.

    I prefer vacation in Europe than here in America.. Here has a lot of fast food which I hate but there are other restaurants that are not cheap. You can't have beers came with lunch or dinner like in Europe. You have to pay beers separate and its not cheap either.

    I went to Portugal all the time because of my big families and relatives there. When I am going to live there again soon then I will travel in Europe rather than here in America due to higher cost of living here and as I said about food and beers are not came togethers. You have to order separate cost. EXPENSIVE.

    Honest, I went to Canada in the summer a long time ago and I liked it than here in America. Portuguese food there are great and just taste almost same as in Portugal. In America like New England's Portuguese food are so-so and didn't not taste just like in Portugal. Again about Canada... Unfortunately, cold weather there and a higher cost of living there but free healthcare there are awesome just like in Europe. :)

    Just booked 2 weeks in Japan this coming fall. I've already been there once for 8 days, but this time I'm seeing Osaka and Kyoto as well.

    Heh, questions for anyone who's been there. Is there more to do in Osaka or Kyoto and would it be more worth it to stay in Osaka and just take day trips on the train to Kyoto to see things?

    You should go to Portugal.. Excellent place to visit almost like in Spain. Both are the same cheaper and lower cost of living. ;)

    http://www.worldofwanderlust.com/8-places-must-visit-portugal/

    But there are so many than 8 places must visit as well. This is sample for you. Beer is only 1 euro and wine is only 1 euro as well. Please understand that if you are going outside of tourist area.. You will only buy beer for 80 cent euro and wine for 60 cent euro. The dinner and lunch outside of tourist area will be about 5.50 euro to 7 euro with beers or wine included. Delicious and CHEAPER! In tourist area might be around 2 to 4 euro more because of tourists but outside of tourist area like in local area.. Much cheaper!

    You should try Portugal too. Read what I said to someone recently. ;)
