    25 Cities you must visit

    Fantastic photos ... 25 Cities From Around The World That You Absolutely Have To Visit

    Chiang Mai is on the list with 2 of 3 photos from other cities 555
    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    I rented a push bike but you can get a MB in there.

    It was a great relaxing,laid back few hours pedalling around the park.

    I took a scooter in the back of the truck and rode it around the ruins. Too kee kiat to ride a treddly.

    Certainly worth visiting. Much more extensive and impressive than I was expecting.

    I'd add Edinburgh, Heidelberg, Vancouver, Rio, Madrid, Munich, Dubrovnik, Venice, Berlin, Tokyo and Vienna to that list for starters... 555
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    Then it would be 36 cities and that does not make a good headline 555

    What's Marrakesh like? I had no idea it was like that... snow capped mountains on the edge of the Sahara.. brilliant. Is it worth a visit?

    That was a pretty fair list. I also noticed the discrepancy by choosing a photo of the white temple which is 150 km north of Chiang Mai. And, the White temple is only a relatively recent addition built as a tourist attraction. It's like taking a picture of Disneyland and saying it represents Los Angeles.

    Fabulous place....it's essentially trading town in the desert.....with the beautiful Atlas mountains in the background

    some of the most beautiful Moorish architecture in the world and the Jemma-el-Fanna square in the town centre is an amazing collision of colour and movement where east meets west...it has the main Soukh behind it which is an endless labrynth of shops and laneways

    Definitely a sensory overload of a place

    There is a huge difference between a holiday destination to visit a piece of history, and a place where you might actually want to live. I would add Vancouver to the list for no other reason than its diversity of cultures and the wide variety of things to do... BUT! Vancouver does not even come close to those 25 destinations when it comes to history and architecture.

    I don't think Sydney or Cape Town would have a lot more history or architecture? But they are still great cities to visit...
