Great Cities of the World

What makes a city great or global? What makes it the most visited destination? Is it its historical significance, cultural assets, or pure charisma? Or is it based on smart city parameters – education, health, safety, transportation, technology, and entertainment? When we set out to plan our holidays around great cities of the world, it seemed a daunting task initially. But then gradually we managed to pull out a list that brought a smile to our lips. We didn’t really benchmark these cities against any parameters. We just closed our eyes and asked ourselves whether we would like to visit them a second time and why? From culture to history, from people to food, from old buildings to street markets, from the beauty of religion to the simplicity of humanity, these cities have everything that is heartening and wholesome. Read along and enjoy our handpicked city breaks..
