Naming top ten travel destinations could prove easy, but how relevant such a list is, that is debatable. This article refers to the most popular locations based on the statistics made with international travel agencies, and according to travelers’ reviews posted on a number of web pages.
Latin America deserves a place on the list with Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Peru as favorite destinations but the remnants of the ancient Maya and Inca civilizations, or the modern and sunny Cancun are not to be overlooked either. The cultural impact, the leisure activities combined with some great weather conditions, make this part of the world a focal attraction point for millions of tourists during the peak holiday season.
Western Europe with the charm of the Romantic setting of Paris, the historic attraction of Rome and Venice, the fascination of Spain’s former Arab cities and the mystical lands of Scotland and Ireland can be included in the list of top ten travel destinations any time of the year. Palma de Mallorca and Ibiza require a special mention here, as they are some of the most exotic resorts in the European part of the world.
The Egyptian Pyramids and Morocco mark any foreigner who visits them, and travel agencies put up thousands of touristic packages for holidays on the dark continent. One of the features of African resorts consists in the constant touristic push and an unforgettable adventure in the multitude of cultures that mingle so much in the crowded North-African cities. Whether you choose a well known resort or a more discreet one, this part of Africa will always rank among the top ten travel destinations.
Moving further on to the distant countries of the Far East it is impossible not to notice the fascination with Nepal and the ancient Buddhist temples on the roof of the world. It is the Nepalese capital city, Kathmandu, with millennia of history that attracts most of the tourist crowds. As for the climbing of the Everest, very few courageous people dare to venture on the crests of Himalaya.
Finally, an impressive number of sunny islands can enter a top ten travel destinations list: Bali, Jamaica, Crete, Hawaii and many others, which is why the list needs to be a lot more comprehensive, as so are the beauties man and God created. All in all the places that you take most to the heart are those you’d also like to visit, and therefore, anyone can create a list of top ten travel destinations.
