Home of the ancient Pharaohs, Egypt is a dazzling destination of temples and tombs that wow all who visit. It’s not all historic treasures, though. With vast tracts of desert, superb scuba diving, and the famed Nile River, there’s something for everyone here.
The capital of Denmark is not only its main and largest city, the busiest port and the most vibrant place, but it is also one of the most popular tourist destinations on our planet. There are just over 502,000 people living in the city, and about 1.1 million people in the wider territory.
It’s little wonder London is one of the world’s top tourist destinations, attracting upward of 15 million visitors each year. Britain’s capital city is a vibrant arts and entertainment center (its theaters are always busy), and 50 years after the Beatles, the country’s music scene still rocks.
New York is largest city in the United States and is obviously a vibrant and energetic place. There is an incredibly diverse range of things to see and do but no visit to New York City is complete without visiting the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and the massive Central Park.
Former British colonies in the eastern Caribbean, Antigua and Barbuda boast some of the most ravishing beaches in the world. Antigua proudly proclaims it has “a beach for everyday of the year,” and Barbuda, Antigua’s sleepy sister island, is also blessed with some pristine stretches of pink-tinged sand sprinkled with chic resorts. Not surprisingly, many movie stars and moguls jet to these islands to swim, surf, sun, and swoon on the dazzling shores.
In the heart of the state of the same name and surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and the high mountains of the southern Sierra Madre, Oaxaca is one of Mexico’s most beautiful cities. Displaying an attractive mix of both Indian and Spanish elements, this UNESCO World Heritage Site has successfully preserved its unique character and is a delight to explore. First settled as far back as 6000 BC, it was part of the Aztec empire until the Spanish arrived in 1521 and soon after established the royal city of Oaxaca, a name derived from the original Aztec fortress.
