Favorite Place on Earth

If there's anyone who knows something about travel, it's Arthur Frommer. The creator of the Frommer's travel-guide series has been to just about every nook and cranny in the world. His favorite of them all, though? None other than Bali.

We find this out courtesy of a new book from National Geographic, "My Favorite Place on Earth," where assorted celebrities let us in on their secret haunts. Other favored spots: The Simpsons creator Matt Groening likes Kauai, Hawaii, while Lonely Planet founder Tony Wheeler prefers Nepal - and designer Isaac Mizrahi singles out good old Brooklyn. (Big ups!)

As for myself, I'd have to say Cambodia's Angkor Wat, Martinique in the Caribbean, and India's Varanasi. And, of course, my hometown of Vancouver, Canada and my host village of Kota Intan in Indonesia's Riau province.

So, how about you?

I'd simply prefer my hometown, YOGYAKARTA. When hospitality meets slow-paced life, you are in paradise.

Favorite place on earth? Can't really say much since I haven't travelled the globe that often but like the comment before, I'd have to say my hometown. There's just no place like home

Yogyakarta is a wonderful place in Indonesia, but in my opinion you can't beat Bali. It's got something for everyone. So much variety. Such a great living culture. Such great art. Such lovely beaches, volcanoes, rice fields. We live in Jakarta, but go to Bali several times a year for quick vacations. Not to mention, you can get the best deals in the world for top class resorts. I just love it
