Most Visited Cities In 2013
Have you ever wondered which are the most visited cities in the world? Well we did, so we decided to do some research. It’s not exactly surprising but here are the 5 most visited places in 2013.
One thing is sure about Bangkok. Plenty of food, from 5 star restaurants to food stalls, Bangkok offers a unique culinary adventure. Bangkok is just the short version because the city’s ceremonial name is “Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit”. Uhm…ok, what? Moving on, the Thai people love their king so it’s illegal to say anything bad about the king or to even laugh at a picture of him. Ok, we’ll have to remember this.
London used to be the largest and most influential city in the world. With a population of 12 million, it’s Europe’s largest city. 3 of the top 10 museums and galleries in the world are in London and it has 857 art galleries in total. If you like Art, London is definitely the place to visit. One interesting fact that I have to share with you: there are more than 300 languages spoken in London, more than in any other city in the world. That’s absolutely amazing.
One of the biggest holidays in France is Bastille Day on July 14th. Colorful fireworks illuminate the Eiffel Tower, armored tanks trundle down the Champs-Elysees in a military parade, low-flying jet planes fly across the sky, spouting blue, white and red smoke in their wake – all to celebrate the storming of the prison Bastille in 1789 and the release of its prisoners. Many tourists choose to visit Paris though this time to catch the festive days. And why wouldn’t they, it’s simply amazing.
Singapore is among the 20 smallest countries in the world, with a total land area of only 682.7 square km. Just so you have an idea, USA is about 15,000 times bigger. The interesting thing is, despite that, Singapore is the second most densely populated country in the world, with 6,430 people per square km.
New York one of the most visited cities
Did you know that New York City was the first capital of the United States? Another interesting fact, land in New York is priceless to own and even more expensive to develop so it’s possible to sell the air above a building for future development. That’s absolutely incredible, I mean, they are selling air for crying out loud.
