Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

I'm bypassing a couple of other spots to take this one, but I'm getting away from big cities for the moment and going to Phuket, Thailand (98.3381 E).

Beaches? We have beaches:

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

Outstanding writeups:

Hong Kong

dense urban area, British inspired Asian city, waterfront properties, English acceptable, Cantonese food is very solid, ridiculous skyline

I do think we need a rules clarification
Spoiler:










Singapore

supposedly has the #1 highest quality of life city in Asia, nice people, low crime, English widely spoken, literally the same temperature year round (80 degrees F)

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

Starting Point: LAS VEGAS 115.1398° W

Pick 1: ALASKA 149.4937° W
Pick 2: TUVALU 177.6493° E
Pick 3: VLADIVOSTOK 132.0065° E
Pick 4: FUKUOKA 130.4017° E
Pick 5: CASEY STATION 110.3128° E

I'm going to Antarctica.



Casey Station:


It's got a lot more in the way of mod cons than you might imagine. Private bedrooms, gym, home theatre. Plus an outdoor Jacuzzi:


I could see the southern lights:


Or some penguins in the wild:


Or just some of the magnificent sights that Antarctica has to offer:


It's a 4-5 hour plane ride to the south pole:



It's something that most people on this planet will never get to experience...

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

The fact that nobody picked [Unnamed country that may or may not be still in play] is a blunder
