Hi. I need some holiday help and quick! :) My mum says that me and my brother need to book our tickets soon. Our plan was to go to LA, but I don't want to go anymore... Has anybody got any good holiday destinations? I was thinking of Kenya or Egypt. Has anyone gone to these places before? Thanks

That's San Antonio, not Saint Antonio. :) And it is a fun place. I highly recommend it.

My favorite city ever has to be Vancouver, BC Canada. The city is gorgeous and very clean, if you stay downtown EVERYTHING is within walking distance, you wake up to a view of the mountains, and it's always beautiful weather (though it can be rainy during the summer/fall seasons). Like Poohbear said, there's whale watching, as well as Stanley park, the aquarium (absolutely breathtaking), Gastown/Yaletown (both historical districts; Gastown has become more of a tourist trap, but the architecture is so beautiful, and Yaletown is now sort of an upscale place with restauraunts, independant shops, etc.), lots of plays and productions to see (I saw Evita last year), and an amazingly large chinatown, you could spend a whole day there! Granville isalnd is a must, lots of farmer's markets, shops, events and a beautiful view of the harbour. Walking down Granville street is also great, there's sooo much to see, I didn't even get to take it all in! I may just be biased here, but that's where I would suggest, though it sounds like you're looking for somewhere a little more "exotic".

I've always wanted to go to Kyoto, Japan. Very historical city, the home of the most prosperous Geisha districts (including Gion). It's not as "big" of a city as Tokyo is, so it doesn't seem like you are just in another metropolis. There's a good combo of city and country. At any rate, I have a bit of a love affair with Japan, but when you're there, you can pretty much take a bullet train out to the cities, country, and there is so much to see and do. You can spend a day in the onsen (hot springs) in the mountains, or spend some time on historical tours, attend cultural festivals, etc. etc.

I've also always wanted to spend some time in New Zealand, Portugal, Italy, the Dominican Republic....ahhh so much to see and do and so little money with which to do it all ;) I hope you find a place that's just right for you, Good luck Piglet (and take lots of pictures so you can show off to us when you get back!)

I'm with the Almighty Miko about wanting to visit Japan, but I would have to stop in Tokyo. I would love to walk the streets where my favourite anime (Japanese animated TV shows) and manga (comic) characters have walked.

I've read too much MegaTokyo.

Well, plans to Egypt are out because if I can remember correctly, tourists were being attacked. We've decided to go to Dubai for 2 weeks. Just got to get the tickets now :) I'm very very excited - I've read you can 'ski' and ride camels on the sand dunes

Um...I don't know. My mum said she is willing to look after them, but I know she won't want to clean the cage. I'll sort something out

It's the same here - it was a shocker when she offered though. We were talking about it yesterday, and she goes ' Don't worry about it, I'll look after them for you'. Heh? Never thought those words would come out her mouth.

Lol, pictures of me choking on sand! The last holiday I went on was 2 years ago, so I really need it. Also, it's a sort of present from my parents for the GCSE's. I've been working hard of coursework and stuff, so they said I can go (they just want to get shot of me!!).

Bromers, you meanie. My pigs are too cute to be food!
