I haven't find my place yet but I reckon some big shopping mall would be it or then on the beach that's where we do people watching with my mates!

When traveling its in stations (bus/train etc) or here it would be in shops, pubs and cafes for people watching..... to watch the world go by in peace its by the sea or at the top of a deserted mountain

I always find it strange when coming across female sunbathers who have removed their tops, but always put them back on to enter the water. (Afraid of fish nibbles? I haven't quite figured that one out...)

Maybe they know something you don't, wouldn't want to you to find out whatever they know the hard way .

With this body, the top doesn't come off anymore, so I don't think I have much to worry about. It's the damn remoras, while diving, that always think I need cleaning.

Sitting by a window in cafes and restaurants is a favorite too. I also like trying to pick out the cars down below from a plane window as we ascend/descend.

For me Amsterdam has to be the no1 for people watching.....what a laid back place.

My personal favorites are:

1) Anywhere in Amsterdam. I really enjoy hanging out canal side or at the many outdoor cafes on the squares and just watch everything that's happening.

I love Amsterdam! It's such a gorgeous place. I remember sitting in the park between Rijskmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, just eating my sandwich and watching the people go about their own stuff... weather was lovely, scenery was breathtaking... beautiful!

A window seat on a city centre bus, its the best for seeing things just how they are, for that brief moment as you pass by.

Are you sure you were in Amsterdam?

Just kidding, I LOVE Amsterdam, but have certainly had my share of bad weather days there .

LOL. I had some bad-weather days when I was in Holland too. It rained suddenly when I was in Den Haag, and thankfully I had an umbrella with me, otherwise I'd have been soaked through. Some days were nice and sunny, but big winds could come up out of the blue. Also, the temperatures hovered between 8-15 deg in autumn (sometimes even 3-4 at night), and Tokyo was 11 deg in winter .

Las Ramblas in Barcelona is pretty good for people watching. We stayed in a hotel with a balcony overlooking Las Ramblas (in particular the Miro mosaic) and saw quite a few interesting events take place. We woudl just get a bottle of cheap Spanish wine and spend a couple of hours watching the world go by. Great fun trying to spot the pick-pocketers!
