Just wonder which is most important to you while you travel:

  • Places of Interest
  • Accomodation
  • Food
  • Shopping
  • Clubs & pubs
  • Others

For me, I would prioritize as:
1. food
2. shopping
3. accomodation
4. places of interest
5. clubs and pubs

What about you?

I'd say:

1. price
2. places/people of interest
3. weather at time of travel
4. accommodation (clean and reasonable)

Food is important, but I always expect to find decent, interesting food anywhere I go. Ditto the pubs. Hasn't failed yet! I have no interest in clubs or shopping when I travel, so I left those out.

the more i see the more i want too see. The smell sight sounds all the senses there to be used. I love the spices and different smells i remember them all even the ones not too nice!
I like to see local talents be it carvings, glass ware or pottery. The list is endless not too mention architectur wildlife see them tanning leathers in morocco it's like another world. when you travel it's the unique places that last a life time not the shopping centres that are the same the world over.
it's all the different syles designs of everything that makes me want to travel. the people in different countries everyone being the same but different . Thats what i look for . The list is endless like the many places you can visit.

A good question.

I guess it depends on the location, but my rough order of things would be:

1. historical sites
2. the types of cars that people drive (I love people watching and car watching)
3. food (although usually over-priced and disappointing)
4. open air markets
5. supermarkets (I love checking out the shelves of foreign supermarkets)
