    Great Wall of China and Japan. Without the mercenaries

    India, because I have family roots there, Ancient Egypt has always fascinated me so I’d like to visit there (Valley of the Kings especially), and Venice, purely because it’s my favourite TR level😀

    The Cradle of Life. The film version is bonkers, but there is a valley somewhere in Africa where the earliest human remains were found that was dubbed ‘the cradle of life’, or humanity, I forget which. Its location is kept secret, but I think it would be a really cool place to check out.

    Either Egypt or Tibet. I always really enjoyed exploring those areas in the games, and both places seem so beautiful. Not sure I’d want to deal with Atlantean mummies and hoards of Yeti, though.:)

    I would love to visit Tibet from TR2. Snow levels in games are always my favourite anyway but when you have an ancient monastery filled with culture and artifacts I just can’t say no! Also an ancient tomb underground with a bird monster, AND snow mobiles? Count me in!

    Probably Peru, it’s not the most majestic or beautiful place that Lara has visited, but there’s something about that place that just seems so… humble. They are grand structures, but simple; it doesn’t overdo it. It has it’s own way of exuding dignity. Something like that.

    Just felt like a rare, tranquil place to be.

    DEFINITELY Tibet. Barkhang Monastary was so beautiful!


  8. Definitely India. Because of Tomb Raider III, I became fascinated with Hindu and Buddhist ruins, the jungle atmosphere, the culture… It’s by far my favorite place in the world.

    Definitely Angkor, and Tiwanaku.

    Atlantis And Midas Palace, which also are my favourite levels❤


    • Both very good choices, though I used to hate it when the Atlanteans used to jump out at me when I played TR1. Not sure I’d want that to happen to me in real life..:-)


  11. For me it eould have to be St. Francis Folly… I wonder if such a place like that actually exists, carved out of bedrock under an ancient monestary…. Fascinating !!!!


    • I’m not sure if they’re exactly like St. Francis Folly but the monasteries of Meteora are worth a visit if you’re ever in Greece.:)

      I was going to say St. Francis Folly as well. Very interesting location and well my favorite TR level!


  12. Reblogged this on China Heritage Watch.


  13. I’ve always wanted to see the Valley of the Kings, but to be honest, I’d love to visit almost any of the locations Lara has-except maybe the offshore oil rig, shark infested waters, collapsed subway tunnels and Parisian dumpsters.😉


    • Same here. I’ve visited a few of the sites, including the Great Wall, where the biggest dangers to your health and sanity are the huge crowds of fellow tourists. Angkor is very high on my list of places I’d love to explore but I’d also like to visit Tibet, Peru and Mexico at some point. Sadly, I lack Lara’s funds so this might take a while..😉
