Yes, I am. That is why I am able to visit. while travelling in the bus, there was a sign on the road that say "Non Muslims not permitted beyond this point", as the bus got nearer to Mekkah.
same rule for Medinah too.

Nepal. Going for the third time. :)  :hello2: :hello2:

I think Bhutan would beat that, but no budget.

If you looking for cheap, possible way is you can travel Bhutan in regular season January, June and July your tariff is 165USD/night halt. Single travelers and those in a group of two pay an extra $40 and $30 per night respectively.

And another way you can reduce your tour cost is  intstead of traveling by Bhutan air you can enter and exit by land via India.

Such an interesting thread and no one else is posting?

Well.. here are mine. I'm not sure I listed down everything because every place has its own captivating beauty. Be it the locals, architecture, food e.t.c. I leave a part of me everywhere I go. :)

Istanbul, Urfa, Cappadocia .. the whole of Turkey!
Phu Quoc Island, Ho Chi Minh, Hoi An, Hue, Hanoi (Vietnam)
St Jeoire, Chamonix, Avignon, Toulouse (France)
Luxor, Cairo, Dahab (Egypt)
Amman, Petra, Wadi Rum (Jordan)

Always a student of life.

It's hard to name a favourite. Every country has that single unique experience that sticks in my mind. A non-exhaustive list...

Egypt - sitting at a cafe in the Grand Bazaar in Cairo drinking tea and smoking a shisha
Israel - the bleak and desolate view of the Judean desert from Masada
Jordan - feeling like Indiana Jones as you approach the Petra treasury
Turkey - strolling through the streets of Ephesus
Belgium - getting lost in the Ardennes in autumn
Netherlands - Driving from Lommel to Arnhem crossing all six bridges
France - looking up at the bunker on Omaha beach and imagining German soldiers raining down machine gun fire
Austria - coffee at a Viennese coffee house
Spain - The Prado is one hell of a museum
Portugal - struggling to manoeuvre my car through the hilly lanes of Torres Vedras village
Czech Republic - my wife pointing out to me that Czech girls are hot. :) (Yes, they are indeed)
Poland - visiting Auschwitz camp is an incredibly emotional experience. Indescribable.
Russia - standing on the banks of the Volga at Stalingrad ... I mean, Volgograd
India - eating dhal in some dingy restaurant in a small village off Ferozeshah and not getting sick
South Korea - trying to catch a glimpse of North Korean soldiers hiding from us tourists at Panmunjom
Japan - staying at a ryokan with my university buddies
