If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?: For me I'd take each one of them back to their own homes, for one day as their tour guide-- meaning I'm sort of in control with where they go, I'd take each one of them to visit their homes/hometowns because I've always seen interviews and such saying their sentiments that they would want to spend time with their families or that they miss their families but are unable to visit them because of their schedules. So yeah, I'll give them their wish to just be home even for one day and not think about anything but quality time with their relatives, they can just spend their times with their families and have fun. Instead of going far and taking a vacation elsewhere, I think it would be a lot more simple yet very meaningful for them to just be with their loved ones. Because you know in the end, what matters most is to be with the people who care for you, I think in that way SHINee could really enjoy their time and be genuinely happy.

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?

I would take them to Rome, in part because Jinki said that the Colosseum is his dream-stage and on the other hand because I want them visit the eternal city. I live here after I moved to Rome by myself because I wanted to attend La Sapienza University, and every time I step in front of the Colosseum, the imperial forums or some ancient historical relic, I remain fascinated because it's as if, even after two thousand years, these sculptures or architecture still tell me something about them and about those who have visited before me. Here, SHINee also mean that for me. They are eternal, always logical but never dull.
In addition, I'd definitely take them in my hometown. I know it might seem obvious, but Livorno is truly magical: it's a small seaside town in Tuscany (Italian region preferred by anyone). The special thing about this place is that it's located in order to be close to both the Mediterranean Sea and the Tuscan hills and mountains, so you can find any type of environment you prefer. Then when it gets dark, the sky is wonderful: it's something that I never get to see in Rome and I miss a lot when I'm not in Livorno. If you look at the sky in Livorno at night, you can see billions of stars shining on the city: bright, warm and beautiful, but terribly far away (a sky like this you can see it only here). Every time I want to be alone, looking for a bit of peace of mind, I'm going to look at the stars listening to SHINee's music: the thing I enjoy most is to seek the five brightest stars in the starry mantle and give them the names of SHINee's members. I know they're far away from me, but I like to think that somehow they continue to shine on me, showing me the right path to follow. And perhaps, in some way, they are doing it seriously.
Finally, I'd cook for them. I don't think I'm a great chef, but many people have said that I'm really good in the kitchen so I would like to cook something for the boys. With everything they do, they really need to eat some good healthy food. ^^
I imagine that such a holiday would be both relaxing and educational, and I think that SHINee's members would appreciate it a lot (or at least I hope so :P)

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?: I'd definitely take them to my own country, Malaysia. Why? Well it's simply because I was born here, I know most of the things here and learnt history of this country so it will be easier for me to tell them more about Malaysia even if they never ask. Malaysia is full of history, Melaka is one of the state that is full with it. It's my hometown so I will most probably bring them here first lol. I'll bring the to Cameron Highlands too, no doubt it's one of Malaysia popular tourist destinations. There are strawberry farms, tea plantations over there so the boys could try some. Near of it is Genting Highlands, which is a bit more adventure than Cameron because there is a theme park over there. That place is a must! There are a lot more place that I am willing to bring them too, it depends on how many days these boys are having a vacation. If they want to go to a water theme park then Sunway Lagoon would be a perfect place. Oh and I will definitely bring them to few famous restaurants and try some Malaysian foods. Not to forget to let them try wearing Malay traditional clothes which is Baju Melayu. They will look great in them! On the last day, I will bring them to somewhere relaxing like the beach where they could just lay down and enjoy every last bit of their vacations.

I love food.

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?:

I would like to tour them to 3 important places in the world.

In all honesty, if I were to be their tour guide, I would love to take them and tour them around their hometowns, yes. As for this, it's because I would like them to look back and get always reminded of their past, almost as if to imprint in their minds, forever, where they have started. There's this saying that "Never forget where you came from for you won't know where you are going until you know where you have been." I'm sure SHINee has this in mind already but I want to see them happier, just by the scene of their old houses, their families and the scent of their childhood years. Wouldn't they love it to have a vacation, just taking back in the scenery they used to treasure so much just before their eyes? No matter how much I've researched, this and only this have stuck in my mind. Since they've been away from their hometowns for long, I thought it would be best to bring back the memories and liven it once again. I think in this way it would also make them happy. If given the chance, it would also be amazing to let them know of my hometown, the Philippines. It would be great for them to know that my family back there embraces my love for them. :) Philippines is such a nice place for touristic places! Our great delicacies and traditions. The list goes on <3

Secondly, I want them to witness the Wishing Bridge, Neuchatel in Switzerland. It seems so breathtakingly wonderful and serene, and I would want them to experience a day or two with their works, worries and everything aside. The picturesque scenery seems to blow off your worries and I know SHINee had been very busy throughout the year, the barely got time for themselves. Though I haven't really been here, I wish for them to see the beauty beyond simplicity this Wishing Bridge has.

Posted Image

Lastly would be, well I know this might sound unusual, weird, unbelievable and all but I would be glad to take them to a place where they can feel the nearness of the heaven or skies. I would want them to know that they are such a blessing to all of us shawols; human beings which were like angels in disguise. Perhaps a mountain with falls, which can serve as a place were they can feel closer to the sky, like in Gullfoss, Iceland. (Picture's too big so here >< -> http://s3-ec.buzzfed...334607459-2.jpg )
This place gives off a feeling of refreshment and rest. I hope they would love my preferences for them, I've really thought about places to take them if I were to be their tour guide since I became their fan. ^^ Thank you so much, Admins, for giving us a chance for this holiday giveaway, best of luck to all us <3

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?:

I'm originally from New Jersey, but now live in Texas. I would show them a little bit of both '^^

I would take them to Austin,TX because not only is it Capital of Texas, it's also known as the Live Music Capital of the World.
Would show them the State Capital Building, Museam of History, and probably South by Southwest (SXSW); a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place every spring (usually in March)

As for New Jersey, I would take them to Atlantic City or Seaside Side, probably just hangout by the beach and walk along the Boardwalk. Would also take them to NYC, since its an hr drive from where I used to live :]

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?:
Since it is chilly over there in Korea now, I would like to take them to my country, Malaysia! Pulau Redang of Malaysia, to be exact. There are beautiful and clean beaches, with the constant sea breeze always available to coll you down from the occasional heat spells the land of Malaysia gives off! Over here they could relax and take a break from their hectic schedule. Goofing around in the ocean, sunbathing, night clubs, and different natural as well as modern entertainments to enjoy! It's bound to be a different lifestyle than the one they are having in Korea, and since they have never been here, it will be an interesting experience!! All Shawols know that our beloved SHINee need a break at times, which they are barely getting... SHINee hwaiting!! Hope you all will come to Malaysia soon!!

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?: I would definitely take them to New Zealand. I live in Auckland, and I know that many people doesn't even know that New Zealand exists. It's such a shame since we have very beautiful scenery here. I know that Shinee came here once, but I lived in Indonesia at the time...
Anyway, I would take them around South Island from Christchurch, Dunedin and especially Queenstown. There are many activities that I think Shinee members would enjoy such as skiing, going on a luge, mini golf and perhaps milking cow or feeding a lamb? :D. There are also beautiful scenery such as the mountains and the lakes..they even used New Zealand for the filming of 'The Hobbit' and 'Lord of the Rings' series!!
I really hope Shinee would come to New Zealand again soon~ ^^

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?:
I say, I will take the to Sabah, Malaysia. I would love to bring them to Mount Kinabalu either just at the base of the mountain or to climb it. They can go to the National Park in Sabah to see the world's biggest flower Rafflesia. And I'm going to bring them to the natural hot spring nearby too. Though there must be a lot of hot spring in Japan where they could go to, but I think every country have their own feel to it too.
Here, the water is just so hot and clear you could even boil a hard boiled egg in no time. Lol. And there's a lot of people do that too. Plus they can take a walk to the nearest waterfall there too. :D It's such a relax thing to do and I really hope they get go to all these places. Not only here in Sabah, but all around the world's best nature place. It's just wonderful. :D

i re​ally wanted to take them to a quiet place where they can be free to enjoy the day without interference from journalists or sasaeng fans. i've been looking for some deserted island, beautiful n loevable. n i decided to take them to Koh Lipe, Thailand. Kope lipe have a beautiful scenery. this island is not famous as phuket island, many arthicel say that this island is visited by few tourists. so glad if i can bringing them here. let them enjoying their day alone. just imagine they'll have fun there it makes me happy already.

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?

I'd take them to France. Not only because it's the country I was born in and know best but also because I do think there's so much to see.

First I would like to show them France's diversity ! The sunny south is so lively during the summer, with the open air markets full of colourful food and typical things made... and also the beautiful sea and beaches where they'd enjoy spending some leisure times in peace. The landscapes there are breathtaking... nature and old houses blending together in harmony...

I would also take them to the many castles around France. The smaller ones as much as the bigger ones. Majestic remains of France's glorious past, full of history and beauty, they'll be able to see something unique and will learn many things about the fascinating French culture. It's also, for most of them, calm places, relaxing, in harmony with nature.

I also would like to show them the Mont St Michel ... Walking from the coast to there at low tide, enjoying walking with bear feet, enjoying the breathtaking landscape, to then visit a very unique place. Climbing will be enjoyable to the sports lovers and the view from the top will be a reward they'll all appreciate.

I think bringing them to the mountains where they would be able to enjoy some winter activities would be good as well. French mountains are really pretty, and so are the wooden houses we would be able to see there ! Also the Christmas markets and winter specialities are things I'm sure they'll like.

Those are cultural activities I think they'll all enjoy, doing something new, relaxing, seeing beautiful landscapes and getting to know more of the French culture.

Maybe our trip could finish in Paris, before going back to Korea, to let Key shop a bit, let Jonghyun and Taemin get some inspiration to compose through the many street performers or the renowned Conservatoire de Paris, Onew to try out the Velib to sightsee Pairs and let Minho attend a European football match. Or anything they'd like to do in a European city.

I proposed all those activities because I think they're curious young people open to discover more. Key and Minho expressed their interest for Europe and unfortunately, I'm afraid their stay in Paris was too short and they weren't able to really get to know the French culture in a proper manner.
I also do believe that they need to relax. Mostly out of the rush of Paris, to take some time to calm, be close to nature and have a change of pace. But also take the occasion to do things they really like and suit their interests. Those kinds of activities can also be done with people they love... they can take their family, other close relatives or friends and have some bounding time there...
I know it sounds a lot, and they maybe won't be able to do it all at once, but I hope that, bit by bit, one day, they'll be able to do at least some of the activities. I also wish they could have some nice time with the people they love and relax, since they work so hard for us Shawols ^^

Thank you for reading and I'm very sorry if it's too long!

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?:i will take them to various place in Malaysia of course. The place where i was born and grown up. the reason why i want to take them here is because they never reach here and as a tour guide, i would like them to feel welcome here with the friendly residents of Malaysia. i will take them to Penang first since penang has too much charms. penang is known as one of the historical site in malaysia and the most important thing is the food. penang hold lots of unique food for them to explore. asam laksa,pasembur, rojak and so much more. As their tour guide, of course i want them to get to know more about malaysia.. so, i will bring them to Melaka. the historical state of Malaysia. the very first state form in Malaysia. the smallest one but Melaka seriously hold lots of charm. from the ethnic to the history itself. i also want to take them to langkawi, kedah,perak,perlis,johor,sabah and sarawak where all this place got its own specialty and history. being the tourism student, i will make sure they get satisfaction and the rest they need. travel is a fun thing and giving services to my super bias group is no problems. :)

If I were SHINee's tour guide, where...why?: Sine SHINee haven't been here in the Philippines for so long, I would take them here, especially now that Korea's temperature has been very cold recently. I would take them to all the beautiful tourist destinations here, and let them experience the warmth of beaches. I chose the Philippines because first, I would like to see them. I mean.. Who wouldn't want that? Secondly, I want them to appreciate the beauty of this country because like what I said earlier, it has been approximately 3 years since they last visited here. I'm they would want that. So yeah, If I were SHINee's tour guide, I would take them here in the Philippines.

them and why?: Maldives. Because it's the beach and in all honesty the boys need a time to rest and the beaches are the best place ever. No other reason just this. I want them to rest. And of course Maldives is also heavenly.

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?:
I'm going to take them to the Philippines, simply because even though I am not that familiar with my country at least I can make sure to bring them back safely to South Korea (safety first!). Well I can bring them to various places ranging from the northern part of the country up to the southern part (extreme island hopping). To make things more memorable for them, I would make them ride the bus, train and whatever ride there is to access an area instead of getting a private vehicle for them. They can go mountain climbing, go surfing, handpick vegetables and fruits from farms, try local and exotic delicacies from various cities and provinces, and probably a number of extreme activities as well. The boys could also interact with the locals just to have a glimpse of their unique culture as each one has its own way of welcoming visitors and such, but I will not let them get a painful tattoo. It might seem like a tiring tour but aside from wanting the boys to have a break from work, it would also be good for them to have some time to immerse themselves into things that they have not tried before. The trip would also probably bring them into having a different perspective about our country since they have only been here for a really short time.

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?:
First of all, I could go on and on about the wonders of my country (and I tell you, the Philippines has lots!) and why I should tour SHINee here but honestly, I want them to know about the wonders of their own native land first before they get to explore the wonders of the world. What do I mean by this? It's a bit simple really. They are always busy and drained and exhausted that they never have time to see the sights of the city (or the country in general) that they live in. They spend most of their time inside their dorms, practice rooms, studios, and airports that I don't think they've had the opportunity to relish and fully enjoy what Seoul or South Korea in general has to offer. And I think this goes out to all of us. We never get to do touristy things in our own city, right? It's because we have this certain mindset that those touristy things are only for, well, tourists. We end up missing on a lot of good stuff and in turn, we don't get to appreciate our own city. I don't want this to happen to SHINee. I want to be able to show them the beauty of their own homeland and since I've never been there myself, it would be an amazing opportunity for me as well and I'm sure I'm going to have the best time of my life (especially with my favorite people in the world!). You know what they say about killing two birds with one stone, hehe~

I don't know if I made myself clear, this sounded a lot better in my head. Oh, well. At least I could say I tried^^

Good luck to all the participants and Happy New Year, Shawols! Thank you, SFI! :)

If I were SHINee's tour guide, I would like to take them to Maldives. I want them to have a proper holiday in the beach, enjoying the sunlight, playing around with no one paparazzi-ing them. I believe that beach could bring you some fun while you're relaxing your mind. In Maldives, the boys could do many activities such as beach volleyball, sea-diving, and also have a little party in the evening. ;) :<3:

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?: I'd take them around Malaysia basically, like a road trip throughout the country. Well, a change in scenery would be nice, wouldn't it? Since they've been to Europe and other Asian countries such as Japan and Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong, why not Malaysia? They've never been here before so why not make their first visit (or second after GDA but still first in terms of tourism kind of visit) the best experience of Malaysian culture that they'll ever have ^^

Places such as forests reserves like the Royal Belum Forest Reserve in Perak to experience the rich amount of wildlife we have in our country. I think it'll be a really great experience for them to see the different types of animals and fauna that we have to offer in Malaysia. And also to bring them to a whole new environment such as at our beaches such as Port Dickson, the rich thick forests that we have here such as mentioned above and also to the mountains such as Mount Kinabalu, which is the highest mountain throughout Malaysia standing at 4,095 meters :)

Other than that I'd also bring them to experience the life of Malaysians. Places such as the night markets here are a prime example of it and also the food we have to offer. We're known to be a multicultural country ranging from all sorts of races to the Malays, Chinese and Indians which also pars with the variety of food and entertainment we have here as well ^^ I'd bring them to the best places which the best cuisine Malaysia has to offer because it simply is the best :lol: I have a feeling Key would like to visit our malls cause Malaysia has lots of night markets and malls to visit and shop for hours on end lol.

Malaysia has a rich amount of history that include the British, Portugese and Japanese coming into our country. Places such as Melaka is a prime example of history which has a still standing fort from 1511. The amount of history we have will be a lot for them to take but worth it because of the amazing still standing structures and information that has happened here ^^

Last but not least, I'd take them to the places that make Malaysia, well Malaysia. Places is the high mountains such as Cameron Highlands and Mount Kinabalu is a must see as the view is absolutely gorgeous, a lengthy travel but worth it in my opinion. Large shopping malls such as KLCC are also another must if you really like shopping a lot. And to experience the roots of the original people I'd bring them to see the Orang Asli (Native People) in Malaysia and to see how we developed from simple people to a more developed modern country ^^

If I was SHINee's tour guide, I would take them to the highest ferris wheel in the world- Singapore Flyer! Standing at an amazing height of 165m, it's has a picturesque view that's not be missed! It will definitely be breathtaking for SHINee and time will be able to be spent together in the Flyer while enjoying the view:) I would also take them shopping at Orchard Road just like what Taemin had say he wanted to do before! But most importantly,SHINee has to have fun and love it! Hence,I would also bring them to Universal Studios in Sentosa,where they can chill out and relax from all activities,and just have a whale of time with all the crazy rides like The Mummy and Battlestar Galatica rides at Universal Studios! :) This tour for them would really be specially tailored for SHINee,to just be free from everything and do what they really want. To show them how SHINee World international fans are really like too! :)

That would be my entry,hopefully I could win this giveaway as I've not won one before! Thanks for taking your time to read anyway,SFI rocks! :)
To Your Heart,SHINee FTW!

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?:

If I were a tour guide I’d definitely take them to my country. The reasons: since Peru has coast, the andes and jungle, there are cities with mixed beautiful landscapes, they can find delicious food, recently Peru was chosen as the best world culinary destination, there are a variety of them, the novoandina cuisine and the Peruvian fruits like lúcuma for instance and many more, there are good transportation and lodgings. Having a totally different culture to Korea, they shouldn’t worry too much about this, Peruvians are very kind and friendly too.

So let’s begin with Cusco, my town has one of the new seven wonders: Machupicchu, such mystical scenery. It is an archaeological vestige of the Incas, the greatest antique Peruvian’s culture, this citadel is the perfect combination of nature and civilization, located in the middle of mountains emanates a particular energy that every visitor can perceive. It gives a renovation’s sensation as if you are recharging your batteries. All SHINee members should come here.


Another department is Madre de Dios, I’d bring Onew here, next to Cusco there is “El Manu” or “The Manu”, a natural park where inhabit wondrous flora and fauna of Peru’s jungle, the biodiversity is the main attraction. Trips on boats will be a must do here, to experience a direct contact with nature, even with part of virgin jungle, and of course he could take a bike and ride it around Puerto Maldonado or through the way that takes you to the frontier with Brazil, but is really hot.


Piura would a perfect destination for Minho, located in the north of Peru there are beautiful beaches like Mancora, where you can appreciate romantic sunsets and dreamy sunrises. There is pretty architecture, churches of the different villages, archaeological remains, flora and fauna, deserts, the best beaches of Peru, where you can do surfing, whale watching, fishing with cord and more. Besides the delicious food the handicraft is one of its most attractive stuff too, and how to forget that the during the Peruvian’s summer the night life is pretty nice.


Ica has many attractions too but I think Taemin would be interested in adventure sports, he could do sand boarding at the dunes of Ica’s deserts or take the “arenero” or “buggy” and get some adrenaline while having races in the sand. He could visit the “Islas Ballestas” or “Ballestas Islands” to appreciate the fauna of the sea, go to the Huacachina, the biggest oasis in South America, with an mermeid legend; fly above the “Líneas de Nazca” or “Nazca Lines” and tour the numerous vineyards that produce “Pisco” the most representative alcoholic beverages of Peru.


Arequipa is another main city of Peru, it is called the white city because some buildings were made with materials that include magma from Misti’s volcano, and this one embellishes the city. Some examples of the pretty architecture are “Convento de La Merced” or “La Merced Convet”, “Santo Domingo” and “Santa Catalina”. There are several beautiful natural views; one of them is the Colca canyon. Surely I can visualize a hyperactive Jonghyun having lots of fun; he won’t have to worry about turning off his phone because there are zones without signal since it is a natural place.


Lastly Lima, I think Kibum would have fun in the capital of the country, especially at Barranco, you have lots of cultural activities and nice views, it has the romantic Puente de los Suspiros or “Bridge of Sighs”, pretty levees, streets, parks, and picturesque squares to enjoy beautiful sunsets. It is a bohemian district, it is a reunion place for different kind of artists, I am sure Kibum could have such fun here; the night life is pretty nice.


Considering Peru is quite far from Korea, it would be more than perfect if our boys came with their family or friends -they have mentioned they spend too much time together- so the memories would be more special. Again Peru might not be the most modern country in South America but beauty in the simplicity of the nature is amazing and the experiences you can have are unique, and it will provide you treasurable memories and relaxation to the max.
p.s. my apologies if I didn’t use proper terms to explain the places better.

If you were SHINee's tour guide, where in the world would you take them and why?:

I live in my beautiful country Indonesia so of course i would want to guide them on a tour all across my country Indonesia. Here in Indonesia we have lots of islands but among all the islands we have 5 major islands, the biggest ones among thousands of the islands in Indonesia, they are:

1. Sumatera/Sumatra
2. Jawa/Java
3. Kalimantan/Borneo
4. Sulawesi/Celebes
5. Irian Jaya/Papua


So, to make it more interesting i would have each SHINee member to choose one of the island and make sure that every member pick on a different island (or to make it easier, just let them draw the name of the islands so all 5 of them will randomly pick one of the island's name). After that i'd take each of them on a different tour to different island based on the island they chose/got. For example, Onew - Sumatra, so i'd take him on a tour all across Sumatra island and see all the famous places, visit the traditional ethnic places and see the traditional houses, eat various traditional foods, and try on the traditional clothes (coz even in one island we can have lots of different traditional outfits, depending on the area/province). And then i'd do the same with other members in other islands. But while on the tour, i'd also give them a journal for them to write down their experiences and put some pictures of our trip, so they can save them as a precious memory and share them with the other members.

The reason why i'd divide them into 5 separate places is because Indonesia is such a big country with a huge amount of diversity. We have hundreds of ethnics and lots of beautiful places spread all across the country and each of them has their own uniqueness so i want to show as many of them as possible to our boys. But to take all 5 of them to all places in Indonesia will be pretty tiring for them too, so while i'm taking one of them on tour, the other 4 can spend their time just the way they like, maybe go home and see their family, or relaxing in Bali island together (one of the most famous island in Indonesia too) or go vacationing by themselves anywhere they like until their turn to go on their island-tour comes (or until all the 5 tour's done). And the reason why i'd give them the journal for their trip is so that after the tour, the boys can gather and share all of their trip experiences with one another. Hopefully by sharing the experiences and the pictures of their trip, each of them can get a taste of Indonesia as a whole. And i think by gathering and sharing stories/experiences they can strengthen their bond/friendship too, so they can be closer to one another~

These are some of Indonesian traditional clothings:


Here's some of the places they can visit all across Indonesia:



Some of our Indonesian traditional foods:



Some of Indonesian traditional houses (each province is different)
