Best Places To Visit On Each Continent

We called these the best places to visit in each continent because we wanted to highlight the top seven destinations worldwide. However, there’s not much happening for most travelers in Antarctica, so we subbed in an extra one from Oceania. The top destination of 2023 for each continent are as follows:

The Best Place to Visit in Africa – Egypt

Between Cario and the pyramids in Giza, the interest in Egypt remains strong. Marrakesh, Morocco, was a close second.

Traveling with family means different things in different stages of your life.

Best Solo Travel Destinations

We don’t recommend traveling alone to newer travelers, especially those traveling abroad. But if you’re an experienced traveler and prefer to go solo, you can’t go wrong with Europe. And these are our picks for the best solo travel destinations in Europe:

  • Paris, France

Reasons to Visit Paris, France

It’s the most romantic city in the world.

With a language known for its romantic flair to lovers perusing its streets, Paris is hailed as the most romantic city on earth. However, it’s not just the romance between people; it’s between history, architecture, and the parks. Whether it’s fashion or literature, everything Parisian oozes with love. Whether your clients are visiting Paris with a loved one or by themselves, it’s hard to ignore the romance of Paris.

Every foodie dreams of French cuisine.

French pastries, French cafes, French bistros, and Paris is all about cuisine. Created through a culture that sees food as a way of life, Paris is internationally-known as a pillar of the food community. The city boasts hundreds of Michelin stars, several world-renowned chefs, and restaurants bursting with Parisian character. From innovative menus to classic French treats, everything you eat in Paris will be so good you won’t know what to eat when you go home.

The history draws you in and keeps you coming back.

There are many reasons to visit Paris, but one of them has to be its history. As one of the oldest cities in the world, Paris boasts an impressive display of art, architecture, and museums that burst with history from every seam. Travel through time by walking the streets of Paris. Starting from the Île de la Cité (the birthplace of Paris in 300 B.C.) to the 12th-century Notre Dame, you can then wander up Haussman’s 19th-century Champs-Elysees into the heart of modern, commercial Paris. The colorful history of Paris makes it the city to see this next year.
