This looks like Libya. This pictures look exactly as some pictures I made when I was there; they look exactly the same (except I am in the pictures) :)

Libya. I wouldn't like to go there, even though there are beautiful things like that... :)

Okay, so the first picture tells us it's a sea-side country. On the second picture we see an Orthodox Christian church, and than there are vineyards, and a Mediterraenian looking old man. So we're down to Montenegro, Georgia and Greece, and it sure as hell isn't Montenegro(The city is too big). So I'd say it's Georgia.
The fourth picture is still a mystery though.

Georgia it is! Excellent process of deduction! Now you choose one!

I threw in the picture of the last building not only because it's amazing in itself, but as a clue that we're somewhere in the former Soviet Union, because the building clearly owes a lot to constructivism which was so influential in Soviet architecture. You can read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tbilisi_Ro ... y_Building

Zorba, if it's Cambodia then there would be no Hindu temple or modern cities with skyscrapers.

I think it's Indonesia.

Yes, you're right. I thought that stone tower was part of the Angkor Wat but looking more closely, it's not.

Those Hindu temples look the same everywhere. Here's the one in Saigon, Vietnam:

Looks like a country in East Africa, but I can't tell which one is it.
