  1. Shonuffharlem

    Best show ever O at Bellagio Las Vegas.

  2. Probably my Birthday meal last year in F on lufthansa, shorty followed by an amazing breakfast at the first class terminal in Frankfurt!

  3. I thoroughly enjoyed the cultural show (don’t remember the name) when we were in Chang Mai years ago.

  4. Was visiting Chicago and scored rush tickets to opening night of “Book of Mormon” – front row center! At intermission, I stood up, turned around and made eye contact with Rahm Emmanuel, who was two rows behind me. “Oh, pardon, was I blocking your view through the show, since you’re back there?” Kidding, Mr. Mayor – love you, man! Fantastic show.

  5. Phantom of the opera

  6. Can’t beat steak au poivre in Paris!

  7. We really enjoyed the Luau dinner and show in Waikiki. Thanks.

  8. Best meal while traveling would have to be alpaca in Peru

  9. Best Show – Fountain show near Burj Khalifa at Dubai Mall.

  10. the cats I watched with a group of friends. It was more than I could afford when I was in the college. It was my dream to watch the show.

    The best food ever was the clam chowder soup I ate on the way to hot spring, AR. I can’t remember the name of the restaurant but it was run by very folks who actually made the soup by themselves.

  11. Elephant ride and show in Thailand 5 years ago is so memorial. I am shock that elephants can play ball, paint, ride tricycle ….. I will BE Back !

  12. Unforgettably delicious dim sum in Kowloon in Hong Kong – I have never found anything anywhere else to match that.

  13. The best meal I ever had was at a hole-in-the-wall place in Macau. It was a local place that did not even have an English name. The meal contained a chicken broth soup that was simply amazing, it was so rich.

  14. The best show is The O show in Vegas. Hands down

  15. The Blue Man group was astounding with the drums, the multicolor paint, and humor! I was most surprised that the show was so funny and it ranks as my favorite show of many great shows in Vegas and NYC.

  16. One of the best meals I recently has was at the Old Airport Road Hawkers Centre in Singapore. The fried kway teow was outstanding and not dry at all. I also had the prawn noodles in soup and the broth was to die for at the Albert Street Prawn Noodle (http://foodiefc.wordpress.com/2011/07/15/albert-street-prawn-noodle-old-airport-road-food-centre/). I then had some BBQ chicken wings. Washed in down with a large bottle of Tiger beer. Finished dinner with some sugar cane juice (http://singapore-trails.blogspot.com/2008/07/sugarcane-juice-must-try.ht) and the sweet bean curd at Lao Ban (http://foodiefc.wordpress.com/2011/05/29/lao-ban-soya-beancurd-%E8%80%81%E4%BC%B4%E8%B1%86%E8%8A%B1/). Everything cost me less than $US16 (and the beer alone was $US5).

  17. Best show was Les Miserables on a surprise weekend trip to New York. We got front row seats – and my wife spent as much time looking at the musicians in the orchestra pit as she did watching the actors on stage. Simply awesome!

  18. My favorite dim sum ever was in HK at Tim Ho Wan.

  19. “O” at the Bellagio is the best show!

  20. Best meal was all the different delicacies I got at the night markets in Taiwan!

  21. We recently went to Maui and got the chance to eat at Mama’s Fish House. By far, the best seafood we have eaten. The food was so good that the next time I am in Maui, I’ll be sure to eat at Mama’s Fish House again!

  22. Dan Gutierrez

    The best show we enjoyed while on vacation was La Nouba at the Cirque de Soleil in Orlando, FL. It was a surprise for my better half. She liked it so much we went back again a couple of days later.

    Thanks for all your posts and awesome advice!

  23. Visit Taipei, Taiwan next time. Amazing food!

  24. Phantasia in Phuket was a very good cultural show

  25. We had a blast seeing Beauty & The Beast The Broadway Musical when it was still in production.

  26. My favorite meal would be the laksa noodles in Singapore!

  27. My favorite meal was my first free one.When i used my miles at a hilton and was got a free breakfast all you can eat.

  28. My favorite meal on a trip was in Normandy, France in 2012 with my soon to be wife. We stayed in Bayeux and after a long D-Day Beaches tour day we stopped at a local restaurant and were hungry and excited to try some local cuisine. After studying the menu I asked our waiter what kind of meat was in a dish and he said it was beef with a motioning across his mid section. When the meal came I was eager to dig into my ‘beef’ sausage, unfortunately it was the foulest smelling beef i had ever come across. Eager to be open minded i tried the sausage and brutally tried to finish the first bite, i failed miserably. My fiance laughed hysterically at my discomfort, it was at this moment we finally figured out that the waiter was signalling across his midsection to indicate that the dish was made of Tripe….cow stomach. Needless to say i did not finish my meal though i struggled to attempt the next few bites.

    We still laugh about that meal today, it was probably not a bad meal for some but just not for me. My fiance and I still laugh about that memorable meal in Normandy and cannot wait until next year when we can use our miles to get back to that restaurant in Bayuex…..and order something else on the menu!
