I would want to visit Cairo, Egypt. I would go to experience different architecture of their city and to witness the great pyramids since they are located right outside the city.

Gondar, Ethiopia -- This place offers a rare look at Africa before colonialism. Also, because of the underdevelopment of tourism in Ethiopia, the visit would be more authentic.

Nimrud, Iraq because you get to see all the damage that ISIS did, and I believe it would be cool to just experience what the people in Iraq had to go through.

I would be interested in visiting Takht-i-Bahi Pakistan because the history and culture is very unique. Takht-i-Bahi was the site of a Buddhist monastery and throughout history some of it still remains. The culture is very different then what we are used to America and I think it's always interesting to explore cultures we don't encounter very often.

I would like to visit Petra, Jordan because the layout of the city is very unique. It is formed by many gorges and canyons that create maze like passages. This kept it hidden from the Europeans for many years. I also think it is interesting that cars are not allowed within the city, so people must travel by foot, donkey, camel, or by carriage.

Angkor Wat, Cambodia: This city would be really great to visit because of the amount of detail put into the stone pictures, along with the very large statues and carvings. Also, since it spans over 150 square miles there is a lot to see.
