London is one of Europe’s greenest cities, with about 3,000 parks and other green spaces. Outside or inside, there’s plenty to do. London is home to more than 200 museums. The city’s most well-known attractions include Buckingham Palace and the London Eye, also known as the Millennium Wheel, a cantilevered observation wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames.

2. Paris

The Louvre

Some of the biggest Paris attractions include the Louvre Museum, the Eiffel Tower and the Palace of Versailles. Another tourist staple is Notre Dame Cathedral, but the 860-year-old structure and cultural icon has been under construction after a large fire in 2019.

After experiencing local culture, tourists can get a little taste of America too. You can visit any of the three Statue of Liberty replicas or Disneyland Paris.

3. Tokyo

The Sensoji-ji Temple in Tokyo.

A must for many Tokyo tourists is the Senso-ji temple. This landmark is the second-tallest pagoda in Japan and sits at the end of a shopping street. Many believe that the cauldron of burning incense at the Buddhist temple provides visitors with good health.

Tokyo has a lot to offer foodies with more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other city. This city provides a more wallet-friendly experience than other destinations as well.
