Jan 6th 2009 9:21PM I went to Colombia in August to the Pacific coast. It was full of fantastically friendly people and soldiers who have bases up and down the coast and protect and guard citizens and travelers. I went in 2007 to Medellin and met wonderful people and stayed out late in the streets. It was not dangerous. Colombia needs travelers to realize that they have left their problems behind and are now on the way to becoming the hottest tourism destination in South America.

Nov 21st 2006 12:39PM My vote is Singapore. Better than free WiFi, they have computer terminals you can use for free, actually good computers standing there all over the terminals. Plus restaurants that sell delicious cheap noodle dishes and polite flight announcements.
