I usually travel to Thailand three times once a year. I love to visit there because culture of Thailand and Myanmar are much similar and cuisines are mostly the same. People are also very hospitable and friendly. There are a lot of bars and pubs where we can enjoy till midnight. Not only it is joyful for young people but also it is also good for business people because it has a lot of tourist attraction places. The reasons that I have mentioned are main causes that I have chosen Thailand as one of favorite places to visit.

I live in Algeria, the biggest country in Africa. In Algeria the distance between a city in the North and another city in the south is much more tall than the distance between Algeria's north and France, so for far destinations in Algeria, I usually take a plane.
In the last summer, I visited Tunisia, using my own car.
In Autumn, 2019, I traveled to Croatia, by plane. It was an amazing excursion.
I'm the kind of person who likes to travel around the world. but there are lots of circumstances, like visa requirements for some countries, and airplane tickets being expensive.
Countries of North America and East Asia are definitely worth visiting.

How often do you travel by plane? Which countries would you like to visit?
Actually, I didn't travel by plane ever. If I have a chance, I'll visit Ha Noi City in Vietnam. Because It's my motherland, I want to explore there so much.

I often travel by plane but usually on inside flights. I studying at university in not my hometown. And I have to travel by plane because there is too large distance away from my current city to hometown. I would like visit plenty of countries. These are mostly europeans countries like Italy, France, Spain, UK and others. However also I want to travel to North America and Asian countries especially Japan and South Korea.

I have traveled to Hue and Phu Quoc Island by plane two times in 2023. Next year, if I had a Visa 500 of Australia, I would like to visit Adelaide city. Because my young brother is studying and living here that is the reason I want to come to this city, and I am really fond of studying abroad in this city too.
