i really into in this video from amandeep

I loved these videos as well. My country also have such type of antique places. I missed my country when I saw these videos. Great job!

my ccountry provides much excited place to visit,, we have some beautifful beach particullary they are located at Bali island, we also have various culture, many kinds of traditional dances,beautifful scenery at some mountains,like Bromo,  and many more..

what attract tourist to come and visit my country is our amazing beaches that have white sand and clear and calm water.  Nowadays, more and more people visit these great beaches and even turn then to an sporting area like banana boat riding race, surfing event, and even simple motor boat riding. Tourist enjoy watching the night events at the sea shore where music groups perform and entertain them while having a sip of their beer. The common comment they leave to us was that, they like our hospitality and the friendship we are showing to them, in return we respect and made sure that their stay is a memorable one that when they go back to their own country they will spread the story of how great was their vacation in my country.
I can compare that life nowadays is much easier that hundred of years ago. With the advancement of technology we have electricity that make cell phone, computer, internet, cars, planes, television which brings people closes regardless of how far they are.

this video is very useful to show out a bit of Britain's history. I'm really enjoyed with this good work.
Thank you a lot for your efforts ...

Hello. I seem to be the first listener from Siberia!
I want to tell you a story about famous Siberian artist Vasily Surikov, he lived in the city of Krasnoyarsk in 19's century. When he was a little boy he always draw on all of surfaces in his house. When he grew up he went from Siberia to Moscow for studying there, and I was very surprised when I to find out that he had to travel some 5000 km on sleighs in winter taiga. I tell you it’s awful hard. Nowadays I can just buy the plane ticket and after 5 hours I'll be in Moscow.
