President Obama may have been on to something last month when he relaxed travel restrictions for Cuban-Americans who want to visit relatives on the island nation. In our newest Synovate eNation Internet Poll, we asked you which shunned country you'd most like to visit, and Cuba won big. Burma was the second-most-popular vacation spot but with only 20 percent wanting to visit the Southeast Asian nation. North Korea, Iran, and Somalia weren't appealing for many of you. Apparently, real pirates aren't good for attracting tourists.

It appears that the Obama administration is edging toward letting Americans travel to Cuba. Which of the following shunned nations would you like to visit first?
