1 Durban, South Africa: It is beautiful and a lot of Asians stay here. It lies on the coast and offers great views of huge ships.

2 Lefkosia, Cyprus: After the collapse of the Berlin Wall, this city was the only divided capital in the world and was shared by Cyprus and Turkey, with the southern and the northern portions divided by a Green Line. It is located near the centre of the island.

3 Dumraon: My ancestral village, my father and grandfather were born here. In fact, the legendary Ustad Bismillah Khan was born here just three houses away.

4 Victoria, Australia: There is a small place near Melbourne where everyone dresses up as if they are getting ready to shoot for the Titanic.

5 Ayai Napa, Cyprus: This spot has beautiful clear waters that everyone loves. It is a small island and fresh fried fish is always on offer at the local restaurants.
