Currently in China right now, and I can definitely say anywhere in China during the summer is not a favorite of mine.
In fact, I don't think I'd want to visit any place during the peak summer season because of the heat and the fact that many families are also vacationing during summer time.

I have spent nearly 20 years traveling for work, and these days I am happy to just vacation locally. I prefer either being in the forested mountains or desert Southwest of the USA, it's where my heart is, and to get away from the crowds and be around like minded people.

I would enjoy visiting Santiago and Easter Island.  I've heard the beaches in Chile are some of the most beautiful in the world, with a great surfing scene.  I know how to surf, though haven't been in a long time.

I think you'll have fun visiting Santiago, since there are a LOT of latterns, in a street you can find a type of lattern and in the street perpendicular other types of latterns.

For example: In the municipality of San Miguel, you can find different models of GE, Schreder, AEL and more in the streets.

I like to go on the beaches for a vacation. And, I like lighthouses, so I'd enjoy going up the east coast and seeing them. Especially the Outer Banks of NC and probably at Maryland and VA and maybe New England. Also, I'd like to see the west coast beaches in CA. And also see Washington State and Oregon, especially the redwood forests. And probably see parts of the desert areas in the southwest.

As for other countries, I'd like to visit some UK cities as well as the countryside. I've seen photos of it on here and it looks quaint and peaceful. I'd also like to see Australia and parts of Africa too.

I'm not much of a traveler, but my favorite place to go is around the Tampa Bay area of Florida. I have family down there and I just stay with them when I go Grin .

When I go on vacation, I mostly enjoy going someplace where I can relax and enjoy myself.  I will always loving going to the beaches in South Carolina because they're familiar, I have a lot of good memories, and I know all the best places to eat and shop  Grin  I enjoy going to the mountains and to big cities, but I like the beach the best.  There is a relaxing and refreshing vibe at the coast that you can't get anywhere else.
