Top Sightseeing Places in Your City

If a friend were scheduled to visit your city for the first time, what two places would you want this person to see and visit? Why? Personally, I would take my friend up American Fork Canyon and hike a place called Julie Andrews Meadow (http://hikinginutah.com/meadow-hike.htm), and then, I'd probably take the person to the most visited place in Utah, Temple Square (http://www.lds.org/placestovisit/location/0,10634,1890-1-1-1,00.html). A tour of this area will introduce you to the history and religious principles of the early Mormon pioneers.

Now, please tell us more about interesting places in your city or area.

Hong Kong is a special country as Eastern culture meets Western culture.We have temples and churches.
I would take them to The Peak. They can see the fabulous views.
Shopping is popular here so I'll take them to the Women Market.

Vietnam is an ideal place for people who like tropical climate. There are a lot of natural and historical landscape in Vietnam. Especially, Hue-the ancient capital is the most exciting place for people who want to learn about Vietnamese history and custom.
There are various scenery in Thua Thien-Hue province. Firstly, if visitors like to join adventurous journeys, Bach Ma National park is the spectacular forest for them. Futhermore,people can enjoy warm sunshine in Lang Co with many delightful beaches and pristine sea. In addition, There are many amazing outside activities such as scuba diving, canoe, fling kites and volleyball in the beaches. Finally, coming to Hue city, visitors can contemplate an ancient superb palace inside a gigantic citadel where almost Vietnamese king generation lived. There are many stunning royal mausoleums and temples around Hue city. Huong river is a poetic and famous river in Vietnam. There are lots of exciting activities in Huong river such as: boat racing and listen to traditional songs. Furthermore, Hue's traditional food is savory and inexpensive.Maybe somewhere in Hue city, visitors will be impressive by charming ladies who wear "ao dai"-a traditional long dress of Vietnam and Hue is the hometown of it.Besides Hue city, visitors will be impresive with also travel in Da Nang-a modern city and Hoi An-a ancient city.
Hue city is my hometown and I am really proud of it. More and more amazing thing that I can not write down. If you are interested in Vietnamese traditional custom, let's visit Thua Thien-Hue province in Vietnam. Thank you for your reading!

My friends were planning to visit the "Anshan" which is my hometown. It's a iron and steel industry city in the North China. There are a lot natural mountains and temples. I would take them to the famous mountain who named "Qian Shan". It's magnificent! There are steeply crags, maple wood, and ancient temples were surrounded by cloud. I highly recommend the Jade Buddha. Most people are supposed to get a blessing from him in New Year. Here teems with jade that’s hardly imagine there are many exquisite jewelries and fine art wares were made by jade. Also, it's really nice place where to buy the best souvenirs. Thanks.

My hometown is Beijing of China.It has lots of attractions such as the Great Wall,the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace. They are all deserving to visit.
The Great Wall was originally built in the ancient times of China as a defensive fortification.It is one of the greatest wonders of the world.It is also a symbol building of China.The Forbidden City used to be emperor's palace.The Summer Palace used to be emperor's park.People can learn lots of China's history by visiting them.Therefore, I will take them to visit the places above if my friends come to Beijing. Thanks.

Peru has a variety of climates and natural places classified in coast, mountains and jungle; and by the way, the mountain is the most that I like. And if I had the opportunity, I would take my friend up there to the most tourist place in my country well known as a “Machu Picchu” ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machu_Picchu ) There you can enjoy the beautiful nature scenery and the wonderful Inkas architecture at the same time. I went there for three times and wasn’t enough because there are many other beautiful places to visit around there. (For people who want to come, a good advice is to be in a good physical shape, because Machu Picchu is 2.438m high and is easy to get tire very quickly)
The second tourist place I would like to share is placed in the coast area calls the “Nazca Lines” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazca_Lines) Many people from other countries comes to Peru to see those amazing and enigmatic huge draws on the dunes … very bizarre because it’s only possible to see them by plane, from the air; and people didn’t know how was made them many years ago without the current technology.

Hi,
I'm from Germany. I was said that usually the only sights American tourists know in Germany are the Neuschwanstein Castle and the Heidelberg Castle. Maybe it's true... but anyway they both are wonderful and beautiful places. Well, the Neuschweinstein Castle is a bit far from the town I live in, but the Heidelberg Castle is nearby. So at first I'd probably take a foreign friend there, no matter whether he is from US or from another country.

Hi,
I'm from Italy. In my country you should absolutely visit the beautiful city of Florence. It's rich with art. For istance you could admire some of the most important art collections in the world kept in the "Uffizi Museum". Then walking troughout the historical centre you could appreciate the sculptures placed in Signoria square or discover the interesting place called "Old Bridge" with its characteristic jewlery shops. Finally you could visit some of the most important chatedrals such as "Santa Croce" or "Santa Maria Novella".
