That is a tricky question, there are so many great places each for different reasons.
For an amazing culture, friendly people, unique and colourful architecture and excellent trekking - Bhutan.
For kind people, a serene atmosphere and breaking cultural stereotypes- Oman
For hiking - Tasmania with Patagonia as a strong second place contender
For beaches - Mozambique and Australia tied
For game parks - South Africa

Hi Shahad,
Thanks for your question. I'll answer it from two perspectives.

Beginner reading level: The book would be fine for someone with grade seven and up reading level.

Beginner traveller: There is a mix of travel styles in the book, some of which will be perfect for a beginner and some which you might want to avoid. You can pick and choose what seems appealing to your comfort level. For example, a tour through Namibia and Botswana would be ideal for a first time visit to Africa. Other useful sections for a new traveller, depending on your interests, would to the forts of Oman, game parks in South Africa, Ephesus in Turkey or hiking in Patagonia or Grindelwald. However, I would not suggest a beginner traveller go to the temple of Prasat Preah Vihear in northern Cambodia as it is tricky to get to on your own. Also, it is not a good time to visit Sana'a, Yemen given the current military situation.

Hope that helps your decision

In dedication to World Oceans Day Picture Photo credit: Chad O’Hare Thirty years ago, my eyes would have been blinded by the reflection from the Aral Sea’s waters. Today, they stared at sand and saxual bushes that merged into a hazy horizon no matter which direction I turned. Our Landcruiser had been bouncing along a four-wheel-drive track for nearly ninety minutes. We were driving on the seabed, or w... Read more of this blog post »
