Top 10 Tourist Destination's

Travel - World's Top 10 tourist destinations

France

Rank: 1

France remains the top tourist destination in the world. And not without any reason.

It has, in fact, everything that you could ever want to see on your holidays: a great city like Paris, good beaches, more monuments and lovely nature, among others. France is also a very pleasant place to stay.

It has good food, great wines and people enjoy their lives.

And the best thing about it is that, barring Paris, living in France is not that expensive.

Spain

Rank: 2

It’s a spectacular and diverse country. The uniqueness of Spain lies in the separate kingdoms which made up the original Spanish nation.

These regions remain diverse in their language, culture, cuisine and art.

Still Spanish people are very open-hearted and communicative. Spain is also famous for its wines.

United States

Rank: 3

Situated almost entirely in the western hemisphere, the US is one of the world’s most ethnically diverse and multiculture nations, the product of large-scale immigration from many countries.

It is also home to several of the world’s most exciting cities, some truly mind-blowing landscapes, a strong sense of regionalism, a trenchant mythology, more history than the country gives itself credit for and, arguably, some of the most approachable natives in the world.

China
