    The title says it all, for me it's beaches, people, celebrations, skyscrapers, contemporary architecture, stars, the sky, cultures, traditions/customs, and fountains.

    Architecture
    Food
    People
    Museums
    Galleries
    Attractions in that city
    Last but not least, the Language/Culture of that country

    Example: London (last major city I traveled to)

    love the Notting Hill area
    Like Fish and Chips, Indian curry
    Multi-ethnic, many races
    Like the Tate Modern
    Like the Tate Britain
    Love London's Eyes, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben
    English accents are always cute and sexy
    I also took a Rock and Roll English rock bands tour around
    historic locations in London, learned so much about Rock music history

    People, especially men haha.
    Cars (I remember as a child going for the first time in UK, I got crazy when I realized they had Vauxhall instead of Opel. And when I arrived in New York when I was 8, I was astonished by the size of cars)
    Food
    And nature. I love to see the differences of trees and insects, and things like that.
    I don't really like to visit tourist spots.

    love the culture and trying different foods, but most of all the scenery.

    Its nice to get out of London sometimes and into the open.

    I usually seek out the music scene of wherever I'm going online before travelling or I meet up with people I know online through forums, etc. Best way to experience a place is with someone who lives there and knows it inside out. You get to experience real life in that location, rather than what's set up for the tourist dollar. Oh, and I always go self-catering.

    One such example was going to Malta a few years back. Hooked up with local electronica producers/promoters. Got guest list to their club night. After the night, I joined them watching the sun rise over the Med with a few spliffs. Was awesome.
    A year later they invited me over to perform a gig at their club night. They paid for accom for a week, gave me a nice big lump of hash to last me the week. Hung out a lot. Gave me a tour of the island. Made friends in the process. Then I wrote an EP (free to download, ahem shameless plug) for their record label: http://www.soundsagacity.com/fust001.html

    - Architecture
    - Food
    - Things that you only really notice in day-to-day life in the place (mom and pop stores, little alleys, cobblestone streets, etc.)
    - People watching

    I like to experience the culture of a place and what life would be like if I were to actually live there. Tourist traps drive me crazy.

    The men

    Beyond that, in no particular order because each place differs:

    - architecture
    - food
    - art, music & museums
    - flora & fauna (Not the Addams Family twins)
    - scenic views

    When I travel I look forward to:

    The food

    Architecture

    Art and culture and partaking in whatever events are happening g at the time

    People-watching (...going about their daily lives).

    Enjoying the natural beauty whether it be a mountain range, ocean or some natural resource the area I'm visiting is recognized for.

    I really enjoy stopping in small towns and eating at a local restaurant there. Great chance to interact with the locals, and they can provide a lot of secrets of fun things to do in the area. Plus I've had some really great food at the most unexpected places.
