    If you were in ... and didn't visit ... it is like you have never been there.

    Do you know the expression:
    "If you were in (a certain country) and didn't visit (a certain attraction) it is like you have never been there".

    What I want to know is if the above is correctly written, or if somebody can help me to rephrase it in the most accurate way.

    TIA

    Silvia.

    I'd say:
    "If you were in (a certain country) and didn't visit (a certain attraction), it is like you had never been there".

    Some might prefer 'as if' over 'like' there too.
