Not shopping (can do at home - and people travel to my hometown to do just that)

Nightlife (not in the "club", "drink till you drop" sort of way - midnight is the limit while on vacation).

No beaches either (except as an incidental fringe benefit).

I travel for business, so my perfect holiday is sitting at home for a couple of days. During my free time on trips I like to see beautifull nature and meet new interesting people. I like learning about cultures and other ways of living (old and new), but looking at old stones doesn´t do it for me.

What are you looking when you travel Apr 23, 2008
I'm looking first to the quality of the food. I like to try different foreign foods and styles of cuisines. Paris is certainly the best place on earth to try a very wide range of cuisines. And the choice of gastronomic restaurants is amazing there. Just look at this selection of chefs and restaurants :

These are some of the top names you can think of. No other city can offer that...

I'm agnostic but if there is a greater power then I think travel is the best way to be closer to one's creator. The universe if there is a higher power, is a god (goddess) or gods (goddesses) gift to us. I want to see the world's natural beauty. I want to see how man has created cities and unique cuisines and customs.

Latin America and Australia have the best food in my experience. It's not the ethnic cuisines and gastronomy (I prefer Russian or Middle Eastern) per se but the available fresh organic ingredients.

I love to travel around to see different cultures, way of life, kind of people, social differences...the great feeling of being able to embrace, understand, appreciate and respect other culture is just one of a kind....and doing this all while having fun, mixed with feeling of mystery, knowing that you are a stranger in that place.......it's just plain pleasure at its best!

I've been Heidi in Switzerland, Princess in Brunei, Parisian in Paris, Lady in the Castle in Scotland, Lovely Islander in the Philippines, Crazy Party Girl in Amsterdam....awwwwwww I want to be a real Bella in Italy next, then a mountaineer in Sri Lanka!

Food, culture (I like to visit museums and galleries), architecture, a different climate, public transport... I also get insanely excited by sexy hotel rooms and high-quality complimentary toiletries. And Richard Quest on CNN.

I agree with you everyone, but I will still add something. I will admit that every country in which I was has its peculiar smell for me. Repeatedly being in one's country I smelt some smell which immediately I associated with the given state. I love this feeling :)

I guess for experience. Only I don't like tourism that much.
I prefer going to a place and stay. Build a story in that place. Create links.
Or alternatively follow a feeling. Pack my things and go.
But I don't have to be obliged to return a certain day. That destroys everything.
