One of the most popular travel review websites has recently published the “Travellers’ choice 2011” list of the top destinations around the globe, in the opinion of the traveling public. These are places where people have had a great experience, whether they stayed in hotels, Bed & Breakfasts or base apartments in cities.
1. Cape Town, South Africa
In the southernmost point of Africa that you can view dolphins and whales. Go to the summit of Table Mountain and see spectacular views, or go to one of the numerous vineyards to taste some of the finest wines available at present. Robben Island, the historic prison in which Nelson Mandela was held, is a must-do for anyone visiting.
2. Sydney Australia
Be a beach shopper at dawn, a tourist in the afternoon, and a culture night snob – in Sydney, you are free to be who you like and still blend into. The city is frequently the first destination for visitors, and it spreads out a great welcome mat. Sydney Opera House, Manly Beach and the Blue Mountains are just a small portion of the many things to do in the city.
3. Machu Picchu, Peru
The destination provides the chance to explore what is left as one of the more intriguing lost cultures and the diminishing Amazonian jungle. The indigenous people are happy to share their culture with tourists and assist those fascinated by the more remote regions with stunning scenery that no other place can match.
4. Paris, France
City of love, with many tourist attractions that you will never be able to see on a short vacation. With a city base apartment and a few months, you could explore some of the lesser popular attractions in the city, not just the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre. A few of the restaurants in this city offer wine and food that can change your perception of your food choices for the rest of your life.
5. Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
This is an amazing and bustling city with plenty to explore and do. If you want to take a break from the hustle and bustle, you can take the cable car up to the highest point of Sugar Loaf Mountain, where the view is breathtaking, and the daily issues of life will be removed for a few hours. Then, when you are back in the city, find a place where people are absorbed in the salsa beat and dance until early in the early morning.
