Beach, mountains, waterfalls, dessert, lake forrest or urban city? I live near the beach, I work in the hotel that is on the beach. I love beach but when I plan for a holiday or dream about holiday, Beach has always been my lowest priority. I'd love to go to the places like mountains, or lake. One of my guest told me about the beauty in a dessert so now I dream about holiday in a dessert.. What about you?

I like mountains, waterfalls and lake forests but forests would be my first priority. I love looking at the green forests, i love anything green and if there are wild animals in it, the better. Second will be mountains but not to the top where it is cold, i just love watching the mountains from far. I love nature and anything natural goes well with me.

I love forest to.. but maybe not the wild animal, anything not dangerous is OK, but tiger, or snake... oh no..

I like to visit tropical beaches and see waving palm trees. They are quite different to the beaches near my home. I love to go island hopping, snorkel around a coral reef, see native wildlife and meet the local people. I loved my trip to the Seychelles, on La Digue Island we hired bikes and found a lovely deserted cove for ourselves. My trip to Belize was even better. The snorkeling trips I did there were fantastic seeing nurse sharks and sting rays. It was interesting to go a boat trip to watch the protected manatees. In addition to the beauty of the beach I enjoyed seeing the Mayan ruins and have an exciting cave adventure. So I would stay I like a tropical beach for a few days then a bit of exploring other parts of the country that I visit. City breaks can be interesting as I appreciate architecture and like seeing old buildings, beautiful castles and unusual looking bridges. I love to see the natural beauty of mountains, lakes and waterfalls.

We alway go for water and woods. I just like enjoying nature and my son loves to fish so lake or river we're both happy - as long as there's not a million people, I don't like crowds.

I think I will prefer to go to the beach. As it won't be so tiring but it is full of fun for a whole family. My husband loves swimming and my son and I can play in the water. It is very relaxing to go to the beach.

I am most attracted to wilderness and also farm lands in the mountains and hills.... of course the water falls go along with the mountains and hills :) I vacationed in the desert and there is a lot of beauty - but it does not please my senses nearly as well.

You know what I'm really torn between the mountains, the beach, and the city. I love all three and all have their own charm. That's why here in the Philippines ... my favorite place is Tagaytay. Because it's in a mountain with excellent all-year-round cool weather. And it's like an hour or two to the nearest beach. It's also an hour away from Manila. But most of all, Tagaytay is beautiful on its own. I never get tired looking at Taal Volcano in the morning while sipping coffee (.... ah, just the thought makes me wanna go up there again.) Plus, there are a lot of excellent restaurants and coffee shops sprouting in the area. That's why when I want a short holiday ... just to de-stress myself, I hie off to Tagaytay. I think when I grow old, I'm gonna retire there for good. :-)

I tend to plan holidays in places where I can do some nature hikes and camping, while at the same time drive an hour or two at most to get to a place where you can find night life and entertainment. There are many such places. Costa Rica is one that I like.
