Most Popular Cities Around the World

Updated on February 19, 2014

Majority of the people in this world live in cities and our villages are converting into Cities. As the modernization brought sudden changes in the life style, imitation of western culture also increased. The end result is over all development. Travelling is another part of lifestyle. So we can notice a new trend of tourism globally. People love to navigate new and unexplored destinations. This Hub is a part of toursim and travel. Here we are going to see most popular cities around the world. Here the visitors are from different part of the universe and these description about the top ten cities around the world may help you to get some data. Lets have a look


1. Florence, Italy: This city is a gallery of world-class art and architecture. A curator's dream, the top sights include Michelangelo's David, Botticelli's Birth of Venus and Brunelleschi's Duomo. The town itself is a masterpiece: Its bridges, buildings, streets, towers and sidewalks were painstakingly constructed by stonecutters. With its warm trattorias, upscale shops and small luxury hotels, the city is a Tuscan treasure.

2. Buenos Aires, Argentina: The country's capital exudes an air of the exotic, smoky and mysterious that is embodied by its tango salons and sophisticated café life. Now recovering from a period of economic crisis, the city has been called the Paris of South America for its neoclassical buildings on tree-lined boulevards. The Museo del Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA), created by young Argentinean architects in 2001, is a symbol of the city's modernity.

3. Bangkok, Thailand: The yin-yang relationship between the old and the new is ever present in Thailand's capital city. Its 10 million residents strive to preserve the past (the Grand Palace) and expand for the future (with high-end shopping and luxury hotel developments that are among the best in Asia). The authenticity of the city's centuries-old culture can be discovered in its narrow alleyways, away from the grinding traffic, where visitors can find silk and handicrafts by local artisans.

4. Rome, Italy: Once you see the Colosseum, venture to the Via Veneto, visit the Vatican and marinate in the history, art and architecture of the capital, indulge in Rome's la dolce vita. After the sunset casts its colorful glow on the Eternal City, romance fills the night air (take an after-dinner stroll with a loved one to Trevi Fountain or hang out at a surprising hot spot, the Pantheon).

5. Sydney, Australia: The 2000 Summer Olympics introduced Sydney to much of the world, but it has long been Australia's capital for sun and sand. In addition, the city's artistic side is defined by landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Cove and Sydney Harbour Bridge. An international beacon of the good life, this Southern Hemisphere city pulses with a thriving arts scene, fine restaurants and world-class hotels.

6. New York City: Millions of visitors come to Gotham City for an array of reasons. Those who love the arts can watch Broadway stars, glimpse masterpieces at the Met or escape with an opera at Lincoln Center. Foodies may choose from countless menus and mingle with the culinary artists-from mom-and-pop deli owners to star restaurant chefs. Famous Manhattan buildings are also worth seeing firsthand: Stand amid the throngs of sightseers below Times Square's neon billboards or peer down at the Monopoly-game like cityscape from atop the Empire State Building.

7. Udaipur, India: Passage to Udaipur admits one to the "City of Sunrise." This destination-regaled for its temples and utter serenity-is known as India's most romantic city. With 16th-century architecture and timeless beauty, sample itineraries of tranquility might include a cruise on the calming waters of Pichola Lake or an afternoon meandering through fortresses and palaces.

8. Istanbul, Turkey: Straddling Europe and Asia, Istanbul is a city that represents a crossroads of civilizations. The city that connects continents also embraces its differences most tangibly at the labyrinthine Grand Bazaar. Just as complex and monumental are Istanbul's sights, all constructs of 2,500 years of civilization. A visit to Topkapi Palace of the Ottoman dynasty and the Hippodrome built by the Romans should top your historical itinerary.

9. San Francisco: The City by the Bay's Victorian neighborhoods and charming streetcars are just some of its historic attractions. Its modern-day delights include attending a tasting at one of the trend-setting restaurants or browsing contemporary art at the De Young Museum. The city is a living postcard, with backdrops such as the majestic Golden Gate Bridge and colorful, bustling Chinatown. But what brings back many visitors is its laidback vibe, visible in its lively café and bar scene.

10. Cape Town, South Africa: Long hailed as an up-and-coming tourist destination, Cape Town continually wins "best of" awards. A mixture of European influences and African ancestry, this town celebrates the land's many bounties with restaurants that pair entrées with cabernet sauvignon from the surrounding wine country. Activities may include escaping to a safari at a game refuge, strolling through the lush Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, taking a ride on the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway or playing in the surf off Cape Point.

      Who the hell gives a shit about Vancouver? You're barely in the top 5 of your OWN country. The ego you guys have is freaking hilarious.

      A minor point but I think London, as the richest city in the world, should really top the list...it has more tourists for starters.

      A further point should also be taken into consideration that a hundred years ago it was the centre of the universe (not just for bankers) and actually ran almost all of the cities listed above.

      Then again, there are politics I suppose...

      San Francisco, woohoo! It's a bit pricey, but the best city in the west coast and arguably the best in the U.S. Cool weather, small area (so its easy to get from point A to point B) and very interesting people to name a few. I don't agree with most of the cities on here, but I have heard of all of them so that's fair I suppose. I am very surprised Paris and London aren't on here, but this isn't MY list. Also, very glad LA isn't on here. It's over rated and shouldn't be a high destination for international tourists. NYC and SF are nice to have on here for the US. Chicago, perhaps? And lastly, where is Hong Kong?!

      Ontario is more globally popular than Vancouver.

      Also, trust me, as someone who has relatives in both San Francisco and Los Angeles, and has lived in both Los Angeles and San Francisco, San Francisco is truly over-rated, and LA is much better. Everything in San Francisco is more expensive, more touristy (urrrg, so many post cards!) and less diverse. Sure, it has a great art scene, but Los Angeles is artistically strong, as well as being much better musically, theatrically, and cinematograghically. Most importantly, LA is more diverse economically and racially. The blend of cultures is phenomenal. Sure, San Francisco has a better China town, but LA has Little Tokyo, Little Ethiopia, Koreatown, Little Bangkok, Little India, Little Persia, Chinatown, and many Hispanic neighborhoods; and anyone who wants to argue that LA is less strong architecturally than San Francisco has probably never been to LA, and only has some mental snapshot of the Golden Gate bridge. Oh, and LA has fantastic weather! Also, where is London on this list? And why is Sydney on this list? This list is not very well composed.
