Why there's no one mentioning Salamanca? It's near Madrid, around 40mins to 1 hr by bus. A really nice small town. All buidlings are of similar yellowish brown color (don't know how to describe). The Plaza Mayor is said to be the most beautiful one in Spain. One day visit is enough, if you're in a rush, spend half a day then. Don't miss the Cathedral and look for the famous skul and frogl, and also the astronauts, and monster eating ice-cream on the pole....
I'm planning a 12~14 days trip to Espana departing from Hong Kong by end of May. The key cities or places that I would like to visit are Madrid, Bacelona, Valencia, mijas; if time is sufficient will also visit Sevilla, Toledo and or Ibiza. I will need to confirm the air ticket very soon, just wondering if it's a proper flight route when departing from HK to Madrid, and return from Bacelona, or some other ways round? Please let me know if you've any suggestion.
p.s. would be much appreciated if you could suggest an initerary according to my places of visit.
Thanks a lot!
