We used to use a 0.5 by 1.5 meters piece of a green carpet of artificial grass for our Warhammer and W40k sessions. Available at any building center and dead cheap... ^^ It's really sturdy, doesn't wrinkle and you can easily roll it up. Be sure to buy one without water drainage (those rubber knobs on the underside) – if you can find one, that is...
I guess, though, any carpet with really small slings will do, so you could have a blue one for naval games, a black for space, an ochre one for deserts and so on...
I tried the Ebbles system and found a tendency to drift apart after an age putting them together. Having used Dave Graffam's street maps, I like the sound of mounting a grid of tiles on a cloth. If you're doing the convention circuit, as I do, you need a simple cloth or map that can be rolled or folded. It can also be adapted to any table.
I lately experimented with having maps printed on truck tarp. Sturdy PVC that won't tear, can easily be rolled up and stashed away/transported with an art roll (you know, these large tubes for sending posters and huge pictures by mail). We have an online print shop here in Germany that makes these prints in any size. A 4' by 4' tarp map costs about 15 Euros (around 20$) and will most probably last a lifetime and longer. I'm quite sure there are print services in your areas that print these for comparable prices...
I like using cloth (Green for Grass, Blue for water, and a light brown for deserts/caves, looking in getting a grey for city) for my tiles I use a modified version of DM Scotty's Tile scape and 2.5 (print on cardboard) with the occasional "center piece" usually a foam built piece.
with the cloth it gives me the option to place books or the like under it to make hills and still lets me place built hills/roads/rivers on top. Low tech old school. Recently fiends have been recommending those new hex tiles that recently came out, but they seem just a tad limiting in 1. the cost and 2. there are only three different sets and not quite what I need.
I have used the WWG tiles and like the versatility for building Buildings but I really hate cutting the foam core. have ended up just creating set pieces, as in frequently visited locations, or pieces that can double as multiple locations.

bravesirkevin: Monty Python is mostly just absurdist humor coupled with a snide mockery of convention. They're also just trying to cheekily see what sort of things they could get away with, in much the same way that South Park does.

marcpasquin: I don't get seinfeld either to be fair so its not a british humour thing. I *can* quote Red Dwarf episodes.

marcpasquin: I just don't get monthy python. My wife made me watch Monthy Python and the Holy Grail and, yes, there are a few funny bits. But on the whole, I don't get why a bunch of vikings rappelling into a restaurant while chanting "spam-spam-spam" is funny.
