Top 7 City Trips
Whether you’re looking to temporarily escape the quiet life or experience a new city for the first time, there’s nothing quite like the bright lights and excitement of an urban metropolis. But as much as the activities and attractions provide much of the entertainment, it’s the people and the culture that really define a city.
From the romantic allure of Paris, to the “big apple” that never sleeps – here are 7 unmissable city excursions:
First up we have the glitz and glamour of Dubai, which has become a hot spot in the United Arab Emirates. Formerly a desert outpost, this city has transformed into one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. While in Dubai, attractions like Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building) and the gigantic shopping malls (complete with aquariums and indoor ski slopes) are a must. For a cultural experience also be sure to wander through the Bastakiya district.
You might already know Kuala Lumpur for its iconic Petronas Twin Towers, or the unmistakable Batu Caves Buddha. But look a little closer and you’ll see there’s so much more to love about this beautiful city. Whether it’s the vibrant Petaling Street market in Chinatown, or the Sultan Abdul Samad building in the colonial quarter. This city is also has its fair share of greenery, with plenty of lake gardens and animal parks just waiting to be explored.
Next up we have what many people consider to be the most romantic city in the world. Monuments like the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and the Panthéon need no introduction. However, as breathtaking as these sights are, the real allure of paris is in the subtle details. Like the elegantly cobblestoned streets, the quirky bistros and bars, and fashion forward locals. With all of this and more, it’s easy to see why so many people fall in love with Paris.
Commonly described as a playground for the upper class, from the outside you might think Singapore is nothing more than high end malls, luxury hotels and fine dining. As fantastic as that sounds, this futuristic city also comes with a rich history and a diverse culture. Singapore also has an efficient public transport system, which makes the experiences and attractions all the more enjoyable.
There’s a good reason why London is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, attracting more than 15 million visitors every year. Of course, must see attractions include Buckingham Palace, The Tower Of London and The London Eye. This royal city is also known for its vibrant art and music scenes.
One of South Florida’s hottest tourist destinations, Miami spoils visitors with it’s golden beaches, vibrant culture and perfect weather. You’ll never run out of things to do in this sun-kissed city, whether it’s checking out the streets of Little Havana or laxing on the fun-filled and legendary Miami beach. If all of this isn’t dazzling enough, there’s always Everglades National Park which lies just outside of the city.
Last, but certainly not least we have New York, one of the largest and most well-known cities in the world. From Times Square and The Empire State Building, to Rockefeller Center and The Statue Of Liberty, it seems like The Big Apple has famous attractions and landmarks at every turn. Many of New York’s must-see attractions are also within walking distance of each other, which makes sightseeing much easier. Fans of Broadway, good food, plentiful shopping, dense history and diverse culture will love New York (essentially everyone).
