In this country, tourists will definitely not have the question “What to see?”, Since any Italian city or village is a unique open-air history museum. What is only one Rome, which the respondents called the “center of civilization” for its rich culture and history and was awarded the fourth line of the rating of the best cities.

But not only Europe is famous for its attractions – holidays on the distant Indonesian island of Bali are also popular . This island, according to tourists, ranked third among the islands, is the world record holder for the number of temples – there are about 11,000 of them.

Rio de Janeiro , which ranks 17th in the ranking, is named, according to travelers, the most “cheerful” city in the world, due to its unique atmosphere of entertainment and dreams. For pleasant shopping, most tourists prefer to go to Shanghai (18th place). Shopping lovers appreciate the giant shopping centers where you can find products for every taste and size of the wallet.
Great stay at a reasonable price
Turkey is recognized as the country with the most affordable prices and occupies the third place in the ranking. There is also a combination of relaxation on the sea and a huge number of attractions and interesting places. As we see from this table, such a combination is most popular in our time.
Thailand and Turkey- The Amazing and Economical Rest:
If you want to have a great and economical rest, experienced travelers recommend going to Thailand on the island of Phuket or visiting Turkish Istanbul, which are on the tenth line of our rating, compiled from the reviews of tourists.
Paris of South America:
For many, the optimal combination of price and quality of rest is important. Therefore, thrifty tourists praised Buenos Aires, so that “Paris of South America” takes 11th place in the ranking of cities for a reason, but for the price-quality ratio. Cambodia occupies the 19th place of the list , which, in addition to its unique nature and friendly locals, attracts tourists with its low prices.
Italian Restaurants Lead the Food Taste:
And yet Italy not for nothing led the rating of the best countries – in addition to the sights, there is also exquisite cuisine. Many travelers prefer Italian restaurants, making them a favorite destination for gastronomic tourism.
Tastiest Food of Cape Town:
But the tastiest food, according to survey participants, is prepared in Cape Town restaurants (7th place), followed by San Francisco (8th line).
I want to say that this rating, created according to the reviews of tourists, reflects only the subjective opinion of a certain group of travelers. We are sure that everyone can call the best some kind of their own, their favorite place. And that is great! The reckless nightlife of resort towns or nature parks, wine cellars or folklore festivals always find reviews in someone’s hearts.
