Nassau / Paradise Island

Nassau or Paradise Island in Bahamas as the name already says, it is paradise on earth. It is just the right place to relax, get the perfect tan and 24 hours of pure entertainment. Nassau provides a safe environment so you can relax on the beach without the worry. The only protection you'll need in Nassau is against the sun. There are a wide variety of lodging options in Nassau. It is known to have the most beautiful, luxurious and pleasing hotels and resorts for the relaxation of all tourists. Although it might get pricy, a pleasurable stay is guaranteed. One of the best-
known resorts is called the Atlantis, which occupies almost all the island. The resort has everything you can imagine from swimming with the dolphins to great spa. Entertainment is certainly that won't lack during your stay in Nassau both in water or in land. You can enjoy the beach, go snorkeling, boat rides, dives, visit museum, eat at the best restaurants, go shopping and etc. It has entertainment for every type of person, everyone will be able to find something he or she enjoys because entertainment there is not limited.
Unfortunately, I still didn't have the chance to go there but Marina Grasso have been there last vacation and she said, "ts warming citizens take you in kindly to explore the beauty they treasure". She was accommodated in the infamous resort Atlantis and she had a great time there . Marina and all others who've been there is so lucky because this place is so perfect that it does not seem real. I am in the process of convincing my parents to go there myself!

Orlando, Florida is certainly one of the most exciting and entertaining cities of the world. It is what keeps bringing millions of tourists everyday and all of them leaving with a smile on the face, I was one of this million. When I think of Orlando, the first thing that I think of is all the theme amusement parks. The most famous, Disney, is probably the attraction that most holds tourists per year. There are many parks to chose from such as, Epcot, MGM Studios, Animal Kingdom, and Magic Kingdom, all of are very unique and fun. The parks are so big that you have to spend the whole day in order to ride all of the rides the park provides and to watch the beautiful and awing shows. Although the tiredness on the end of the day is extreme, it is all worth it. There are other parks as well such as Universal Studios, Bush Gardens and Sea World. I loved each and every one of them. Orlando is a place full of parks but also lots of shopping to do. Orlando is full of outlet malls where things are much cheaper but still there are many things. Eating is very entertaining as well, besides the food being good, the environment you eat in is very fun and unique. I think I never had so much fun eating. Basically everything you do in Disney is entertaining, fun, and unique, there is nothing that does not please the tourists that visit Orlando. Don't forget to see the famous Cinderella Castle and go in all the rides, especially the roller coasters!!!!

Barcelona, Spain is another city worth visiting. Like other European cities, Barcelona is also known to have beautiful and mesmerizing historic architectures. You can explore the historic city and see some original buildings in places such as Sagrada Familia and Casa Batllo. Barcelona is a city full of action and there is no shortage in entertainment for all ages. Weather in Barcelona is months of sunshine so it is almost 100% chance that you'll be able to enjoy the beautiful golden beaches of Barcelona. Another thing you should do is watch a Barcelona game at the stadium, watching the game on the tv and live is totally different especially if it is one of the best teams in the world. Museums are another reason to visit Barcelona. It offers the best museums such as the Palau de la Musica and the Museu Picasso. Trust me, they will surprise you. Have you ever heard about paellas or tapas? Well, they are both very good dishes from Barcelona and you can have it everyday there. The gastronomy in Spain is considered to be delicious, and I was proved right. What couldn't miss is the shopping that everyone enjoys, there are many shopping areas from which you can chose from.
Barcelona is a great city and I think you'd enjoy it too. As the other european cities, it is a city you MUST visit.

Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, the heart of Argentina, is one of the most popular destination in Latin America.
It is famous for its cultural and architectural heritage, shopping, food and of course, tango. You can see the cultural and architectural heritage in old neighborhoods such as San Telmo with its cobblestone streets and don't forget the brightly colored spot called La Boca, which is a memorabilia. It is where all old town houses were transformed into memorabilia stores, and there is something fun to buy in every store you go. I had lots of fun in La Boca, because it was so unique, colorful and full of life. For those who are veggies, Buenos Aires is not a very good place to visit because it is considered to have the best beef in the world. The beef are DELICIOUS, I personally thought Buenos Aires' beefs were fascinating although Brazil's beefs are good as well. To go with the beef, Buenos Aires is also known to have one of the best wines because it is the fifth largest wine producer in the world. Tango is the perfect exercise to get rid of everything you ate. Buenos Aires is the home of the beautiful, complicated and interesting dance called Tango. For all of you interested in learning how to dance, Buenos Aires offers several places where tourists can learn the basics of tango. But there is also presentations you can watch if you are not much of a dancer. I think the dance tango is very different and beautiful but too complicated, which is why I didn't even dare to try. A place that you should definitely visit when you are in Buenos Aires is the Iguazu Falls, one of the worlds natural wonders. The endless waterfall is located on the border of Argentina and Brazil, so you can actually see people from Brazil in Argentina. I thought that was so fun, it was interesting how two distinct countries met in one place. It is also the same fall featured in one of the Bond movies for being so big and wonderful. DON'T forget to go on a boat ride right underneath the waterfall!! You're going to get soaked but it's worth it!
There is something for everyone to enjoy, whether it is exploring, eating or dancing. I thought it was a very entertaining country and many other people enjoyed it too.
