I'd love to visit it, but...erm...wouldn't want to live there. ;) I'd die of happiness to visit the spirit realm in Spirited Away though.

That would be sweet. Watch out for the hungry ghosts.

Why should I define myself by quoting others?

Where to visit, indeed. Barsoom, where an Earth-born is nearly a superman? The Forgotten Realms, dragons and dwarves, orcs and enchanters, warriors bold and wenches even more so? Middle-Earth among gentle hobbits, beared dwarves and elegant elves?The distant past (that seems the far future) of Star Wars?

Movies are fine, but books--real, printed paper books--can cross time and space, and paint a far more vivid landscape on the canvas of imagination. Off all the places here named that I have visited, only Pandora have I visited at the theater before indulging in the superior pleasure of a book. Even Star Wars was a book by Lucas before the movie even hit the screen.

Alan Dean Foster wrote Star Wars.
Did anyone mention Dune?
Or the world of Tiers?
What about Pellucidar?
Or Rama?
Or Pern?

They should have included Tamriel from the Elder Scrolls series of games.

I'd have picked that above all the others. Very much like Middle Earth, but fewer fantasy cliches.

You forgot Witch World, described by the great Andre Norton in several books.

I'd say the list is for people who read English (popular) literature only. People with some exposure to world literature would probably have a completely different list. For example, when I was young, the world of A Thousand and One Night was very exotic (let's not forget how many of those stories were turned into early American movies.) The Chinese would probably pick the fantastic setting of the Journey to the West. The Hindus would likely imagine themselves in the ancient world depicted in Ramayana or Mahabharata.

I'd go for 1001 Nights. A busy mercantile city on a coast with palm trees.

But those stories take place on "real" Earth. The list is for fictional places that are distinct from and alien to our world.

Definitely visit Ankh-Morpork and pay a visit to Lord Vetinari, if it was possible I'd vote for him to run the world. Intelligent, pragmatic and thinks that war is just a waste of customers.

They are completely ignorant of space-war tactics.

How about Alderan? They're peaceful. They have no weapons. What could possibly go wrong?

I agree! The new movie is coming out in a couple weeks I think, but I doubt it will match Howards vision of the dark maned blue eyed Cimmerian.

You can actually visit one of them: #10, Tatooine.
There is a small town in the south of Tunisia, where Star Wars was filmed, called Tataouine.
Most of the set is still on location as a tourist attraction.
