Best places in the world and why they are popular

Updated: Jun 9, 2023

It’s traveling season and looking for the perfect destination can be time-consuming amidst getting all the travel documents ready and packing for the trip. So, we bring you 5 of the world’s best places and why they are popular.


PARIS, FRANCE

No list of places would be complete if it did not include Paris – the city of lights and love! It is that place that is on almost every traveler’s bucket list and is every couple’s honeymoon destination. It has some internationally renowned sights that are frequently included in travel publications, movies, and other artistic works. With a population of over 2 million people, Paris is one of Europe’s most visited cities. And the reasons are pretty obvious! The Eiffel tower, Notre-Dame cathedral, and the Louvre Museum are among its most famous landmarks. Along with these gorgeous sights, the city’s terrace cafes and high-quality gastronomy have people flocking to Paris all year round.



SANTORINI, GREECE

This city of serene beauty and mythology has long been on my bucket list. Ever since I saw its pictures on the internet, I knew that someday in the future I have to visit this place to experience the ethereal beauty with my own eyes. It is safe to assume that Greece's enduring impact on the world, which dates back more than 2000 years, has also compelled me to visit the Birthplace of Democracy and the Cradle of Western Civilization. A volcano island just 200 kilometers away from mainland Greece, this small Greek island of Santorini is a popular vacation spot for a variety of factors, including its gorgeous villages and turquoise ocean, superb wine-tasting opportunities, traditional Greek food, and frequent boat trips because of its prime location for island hopping. Stop by on one of the terraces to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets and be part of this picturesque natural phenomenon.



BORA BORA ISLANDS, FRENCH POLYNESIA

Located in the North of French Polynesia, Bora Bora islands are a popular worldwide tourist destination known for their opulent beachside (and even offshore) resorts. Visitors thoroughly plan and research their vacation to one of the most well-known and romantic locations on The Islands of Tahiti when going to Bora Bora.

The island's white sand beaches, azure oceans, and coral gardens are surrounded by thick, verdant foliage, and they are pleasantly pleased by the fresh discoveries that await them while they are there. In addition to gorgeous beaches, there are a few underwater activities that let you get up close and personal with the mysterious aquatic life through snorkeling and scuba diving. Enjoy nature and wildlife tours to get a change of scenery from the beaches!



DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

If I were to write only on Dubai, this blog post would never end! I may be biased toward this gorgeous city and country because I have grown up there. However, Dubai has established quite a number of reasons why you MUST visit this city. Dubai is regarded as one of the top cities in the world for a variety of reasons. This is a result of its distinctive architecture, multicultural setting, high demand for real estate abroad, and popular tourist sites. According to Gulf Sotheby's International Realty, the city has changed in 45 years from a little trading community to one of the most inspiring, prosperous, and interesting cities in the world.



Dubai is home to the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa. Standing at 830m to tip, this building gets around 16,730,000 visitors each year. The city also hosts one of the tallest luxury hotels, Burj-Al-Arab, and The Dubai Mall, the world’s second-largest shopping mall. In addition to these, Dubai also has Ski Dubai which is a 22,500 square meter indoor ski area that can be found in one of the other largest shopping malls, The Mall of the Emirates. All in all, it is certain that if you visit Dubai you will find yourself experiencing a little bit of everything within one country itself. That is what makes Dubai my favorite place, and I’m sure if you visit this country once, it’ll become your favorite as well.



PYRAMIDS OF GIZA, EGYPT

If you are a history buff and would like to immerse in an experience that will educate you about how the world was before, I would recommend visiting the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt at least once. The Great Pyramid is the largest and oldest of the Giza Pyramids. This is the oldest of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World, having been constructed in 2560 B.C. The size of this pyramid is simply incredible, and it has held up extremely well.



It is presently about 455 feet tall, down from its former height of just over 480 feet which is a result of erosion that it has faced throughout its lifetime. However, this pyramid has a staggering volume of 88,000,000 cubic feet. Even though you may take tours of the pyramid and visit its chambers and tombs, researchers think that there is still more of the Pyramid to be found.


It is apparent that these places are known as some of the best for a reason. Every place has its own uniqueness. You won’t know them unless you have experienced this firsthand. So set aside some time for yourself this holiday season and go enjoy these magnificent places!
