The last tropical isle I visited was crammed wall-to-wall with plump
and pale-faced tourists trying to get a deep tan on a week's holiday.
That was Oahu, Hawai'i. Prices were high, it stank of rotten pineapples,
it swarmed with unfriendly natives.

I would much rather march down the North American Continental Divide in
Colorado.The deep blue sky, the crisp clean air at seventeen thousand feet
of altitude, the fragrance of evergreen forest, the sheer lack of people,
(It usually takes work to get up on a mountain.)

I want to see the soaring Rockies in the Fryingpan Wilderness again,
set up an easel and paint the Mount of the Holy Cross, live for a day on
thin air and snow-melt.

I currently live in the Rockies, so a tropic island. The mountains are too cold and the air is too thin.

To sit and relax on a sandy beach planning to do nothing at all, absolute bliss.

Although after reviewing the mounain photographs that seems to be a pretty cool holiday too.

Beautiful country, fantastic view of the harbour, the town looks unspoiled by modernisation.

I detest cold weather, but I also dislike beach holidays. They're a complete waste of time and there is usually nothing worthwhile once you get bored and step off the beach. At home I find sunbathing tedious so why would I pay to go and do it elsewhere?

Moutains. Tropic isles mean lazing around on the beach all day, which quickly becomes boring (although I did enjoy Ko Samui in Southern Thailand). Holidaying in the mountains means the opportunity to go hiking and mountain-climbing, with a sense of achievement and overcoming. I like a "man versus the elements" challenge even on holiday.

What about a tropic isle with a mountain in the middle? That would be perfect!

P.S. One of the sea birds in the bottom picture is fake.

Neither.

A big city with loads of things to do is far more interesting than lying on a beach all day long, as beautiful as it may be, or go hiking in mountains.

Tropical Island of course. I cannot even fathom why anyone would choose mountains over a tropical island nor will I entertain any arguments to that effect.

Mountain or city. I hate hot places and I hate beaches unless it's winter and it's raining and there are seagulls around to play with.

Blackpool, Skeggie, Scarborough, Bournemouth and many more! A veritable paradise of damp, cold and Gull infested beaches for your delight! :)

I'm sure you'd be more than welcome, just bring a blanket.

Diving, parasailing, water skiing, clubbing, gorgeous women in small bikinis.

There is nothing like going out all night in perfect 70 degree weather, spending the night with a pretty girl, and waking up to recover on a beautiful beach with clear water and a cabana selling pina coladas right outside the sliding glass door of your hotel room.

Especially with a good book and waiter service to bring you your lunch.

Mountains shmountains.

Mountains, I love the cold snow.

I don't like the heat and tropical holidays are all hype anyway. I'm not a crab or a lizard so it's not in my nature to be in the sun.

Tropical places are my vision of Hell. If one wished to punish me they'd send me to a labor camp in the tropics. I'd kill to live in a place like Archangelsk

I don't imagine there are many ladyboys in Arkhangelsk.
