Three Life-Changing Cities That Everyone Should Visit
The world is full of iconic cities. When planning a trip, you might struggle to decide on a particular place to visit. You have so many options but only so much time and money. How can anyone pick? Well, if you want a little guidance, then this article might just help to point you in the right direction. These are four life-changing cities that everyone should visit, so you should bump them up to the top of your “must-see travel destinations” list. You won’t be disappointed after a trip to any of these breathtaking locations.
New York City, U.S.
We’re all inundated with images of New York City on a regular basis. For many of us, this started when we were children. New York was everywhere. It was in the films we watched, the adverts we saw on TV, and even the magazines we read. This is still the case today. And it doesn’t just apply to American citizens. People all over the world are bombarded with pictures and videos of the Big Apple on an endless basis. It makes sense, then, that so many of us want to visit this magical and intriguing city. It might be one of the most impressive promotional campaigns for a city in history.
If you’re wondering what to do in this overwhelming megacity, you should start off by exploring some of its iconic landmarks. The Empire State Building might no longer be the tallest skyscraper in the city (it hasn’t been the tallest building in the city for a long time), but it’s still one of the most famous skyscrapers in New York City. Going to the top deck and looking out at the concrete jungle from a higher vantage point will really help to put its beauty into perspective. And, obviously, it wouldn’t be a trip to New York if you failed to see the Statue of Liberty. You should also head to Broadway, of course. If you have the time and the money, seeing a theatrical Broadway experience is otherworldly.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Whilst it might not be as famous or as popular as New York City, that doesn’t take away from the cultural and historical significance of Kuala Lumpur. This gigantic city is visually impressive, but it’s also a fascinating place. Admiring its huge skyscrapers is unavoidable, but there’s more to this city than tall buildings. That being said, the Petronas Towers (the two most iconic skyscrapers in the city) are worth exploring first. But you should also visit Chinatown if you want to experience Kuala Lumpur’s multicultural heritage on a first-hand basis. The city is so big that it might be worth renting a condominium whilst you visit this wonderful destination. This will give you enough time to see and do as much as possible.
It’s also worth visiting Dubrovnik if you want an unforgettable trip. This Croatian city has been a bit of a hidden gem for many years, but it recently became popular with tourists because its Old Town was used as the filming location for Game of Thrones. If you’re a fan of the TV show, then you’ll probably find yourself quite giddy at the prospect of seeing King’s Landing and the Red Keep in real life. You should definitely book yourself a walking tour whilst you’re there; you’ll want to make sure you see all of the filming locations for yourself. You won’t want to miss anything. Plus, a tour will give you a bit of a history lesson and explain what purpose these ancient castles and city walls served in the real world.
Whilst mass tourism has overwhelmed the city over recent years, it has brought this fantastic place to the attention of the world. And it deserves to be noticed. It’s absolutely beautiful. Regardless of its recent fame, Dubrovnik has a lot to offer in its own right. You should take a kayak ride around the stunning Lokrum Island. You might also want to take a ferry to the island; it’s a stunning place. You’ll see everything from an ancient monastery to wild rabbits hopping around. As important as it is to appreciate culture and history, there’s no denying that the beautiful animals on the island seem to intrigue visitors the most.
There are too many incredible cities in the world for one person to explore. Hopefully, the three suggestions in this article will satiate your hunger for stunning new destinations to visit.
