    I don’t know it could just be the quality of the pic but that water doesn’t look very tropical to me despite the palm trees. I could be entirely wrong though.

    Gah, I'm going to accept as it is "where they filmed Cast Away": Not Hawaii though, but Monuriki, part of the Fiji Islands.

    Damn, I thought I'd read somewhere (years ago) that it was filmed on Hawaii. The more you know! I did recognise it instantly though. One of my favourite films, actually.

    Try this. Hope it's okay.

    I'm quite sure I'm not going to guess that one.

    Yeah, sorry, I guess it's a bit too vague. It's a fairly well-known building, at least where I come from. I'll give it a little longer and failing that I'll pick something better.

    I'm guessing that meant it's in Gold Coast, Australia? Unfortunately if so Gold Coast seems to have lots of towers and nothing that looks like the pic comes up on any searches I tried...

    Yep same. They're mostly residential highrise buildings there, with balconies. Also checked nearby Brisbane. Nothing.

    Frunk is not necessarily from Gold Coast.

    Well ..... I found it. It's a highrise building on the corner of Clark st and Hancock street in Melbourne. No idea why this would be well known though.

    Ok, waited long enough. I know it's right anyway, so I'll just post the next one

    'Climate' and the fact that it looks restored makes it unlikely to be UK

    I'd guess at somewhere in Portugal as it has elements that look like bits of Obidos Castle and bits of Castelo de Santiago do Cacém, not finding a match at the moment though

    It's an interesting one

    Krak des Chevaliers is located in Syria.
    That's not the Syrian flag on the tower at the right.
    Looks like the flag of Armenia to me.
    Is it in Armenia?

    It's not in Armenia, but you're on to something with the flag.

    Shahbulag Castle in Nagorno-Karabakh Republic which has a very similar flag to Armenia.

    Is correct. It houses a museum about the archeological dig site of Tigranokert (in foreground).
