San Francisco, California

I have a free airline ticket to anywhere in the world... Where should I go?

I have a free airline ticket to anywhere in the world. I have one week to travel. I leave in two weeks. Where should I go? Where would you go? 

My home base is SFO. I do need access to the Internet while I'm there.

    well I would def do Asia, Australia or New Zealand. The only reason is because those plane tickets cost the most lol. If it's a free ticket go for something you normally wouldn't be able to afford!

    South Africa. For 1 week I'd spend around Cape Town. Perfect place for the free trip. Amazing, lots to see and do, easy to navigate when there, etc.

    Generally I would say Japan or Sydney since those tickets tend to be crazy expensive, but one week isn't enough time to get over the jet lag. So: Rome.

    Sri Lanka it's such a beautiful country and you could see most of the country in a week. Visit Kandy and the hill country, the ancient city of Anuradhapura visit a spice garden and a tea plantation. Climb Adam's Peak at night to descend as the sun is rising. Then go to Tangalle for a couple of beach days. Perfect! We stayed in Mt Lavinia, just south of Colombo and hired a car and local driver.

    I would suggest India because of its diverse geography, diverse culture and rich heritage. There are wide variety of options and you can choose destinations as per your interest. It would be better if you go somewhere in November. Its a good season with some major festivals which can add up to your experience.

    I had one of those. My criteria was: where would I never pay to go? So that's how we picked. Then my question to you is where would you never pay to go to--whether it was on your bucket list or not? Hope you come back and tell us what you picked.

    Iceland, Norway, New Zealand. Because they are absolutely stunning places.

    Iceland is probably still the most naturally amazing place I have been (been there in winter and summer and both amazing in their own ways).

    If you don't have bucket list with places then sometimes the best thing to do is get out a globe, give it a spin and see where your finger stops. But think to your favorite movies, books, tvshow....where do they take place? Have you ever watched a movie and said I would love to visit? Even if its an alien planet there are plenty of places on earht that look like a alien planet. http://www.boredpanda.com/earth-photos-look-alien/

    Originally I would've suggested Australia, the Maldives, etc... But truthfully one-week is not enough time for travel, jet lag and tour. So then I would say Spain, perhaps the islands of Ibiza, fly into Palma de Mallorca Airport etc...

    Where ever you choose read the fine print.. See if staying in the connection city is allowed.. then choose the airline that you like their city that they're based out of. Also, check and see if flying into one city is allowed and flying home out of another city.. Maximize your free ticket!!!

    With a free ticket, I'd choose a destination that is very expensive to get to from your country. I would assume Central Asia and most of Africa should be on your list. I would love to visit somewhere like Mongolia or Bhutan or Kazakhstan or, in Africa, somewhere like Cape Verde or Chad
