Voice of Travelers to Finland
Finland is a beautiful country. Hope to book a ticket again very soon
Finland is a very beautiful country and I enjoyed my honeymoon there in 2014. I will never forget so many special moments I experienced there. I am from Ukraine and visited Finland by booking an air ticket with Ukraine International Airlines. I spent two weeks there and it was amazing. There are a lot of places to visit in Finland such as the Santa Clause Village, Kisama and Levi Resort. I will book an air ticket to Finland again for a holiday and explore more places.
Finland is a great place to visit for students
I am a Turkish national and completed my studies here in Finland. After university, I managed to get a high paid job in Finland. I am very much satisfied with living in Finland. The first time I arrived in Finland was seven years ago and I booked my air ticket with Turkish Airlines. I had to apply for a visa to live in Finland and it was an easy process. I think that Finland is one of the best countries to live in. Public transport tickets are cheap. The people in Finland are friendly and always very warm towards foreigners in country. Next month, I will book tickets to visit Turkey for a small holiday back home and then return to Finland.
