Six World Cities You Need To See

Those who love the city will know the utter wanderlust that comes with visiting as many cities as possible. Sure, there may not be any mountainous views or rolling waves off the coast when you're in a city, but you do get the twinkling lights, the hustle and bustle of the locals, the street food smells and the sheer dominance of the buildings. There is a beauty in the city, even the smelliest and most air-polluted cities have a charm to them that cannot be captured elsewhere. Everyone who loves the countryside still feels the buzz when they visit the cities. Getting lost and being anonymous among those determined to get to their destination is part of the allure of the town, but more than that, they're dripping with history.

Cities were built and fought for, torn down and built again over and over again throughout history. No matter where you are in the city, there is always somewhere centuries-old to visit and enjoy. With that in mind, we're going to talk about six world cities that you absolutely must see during your travels. Let's take a look!

New York City, US
Okay, we all know that New York is not just about the city - we know. WE KNOW. However, New York City is the Big Apple that everyone wants to take a bite out of at least once in their life. It's called the East Coast Hollywood and the Theater centre of the world for very good reason. The city doesn't sleep; full of life and energy at all hours of the day. There are so many reasons that the city doesn't sleep and it's not just because its workers are so determined. Walk through Times Square at night time, and you will feel every New York minute pass you by. Stop for an authentic NYC pizza and catch a show: you're in New York!

Rome, Italy
There's nowhere else in the world where you can thumb pennies into the Trevi fountain while strolling along to the next modern art deco museum. The authentic food - pasta puttanesca, please - and the smells and sounds of Rome will come alive right in your heart. You'll catch your breath at the sight of the Colosseum, buy hand-made gelato and look in awe to Michelangelo's ceiling. Rome wasn't built in a day, so you'll need more than that to truly explore her depths.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
A capital city just like Rome, Kuala Lumpur has come on in leaps and bounds over the years. It's a pure melting pot of culture, a hub of innovation and a gem of Southeast Asia. It's a bustling business center and a place where people come together to enjoy the great outdoors. With glittering skyscrapers, quaint coffee shops and careful preservation of the old Kuala Lumpur monuments, there's always something to see. Book your stay in luxurious apartments near the Petronas Twin Towers and take in the skyline while you shop. There is so much to do and see you will never be bored by what's ahead of you.

Beijing, China
Always a private country, China has recently opened its doors to the world and is allowing tourism to boom at last. Beijing is its mysterious capital, and although you may not have considered how Beijing is going to impact your life, it's time to start! Brightened by its past - but in no way stuck in it - Beijing has a rich history, beckoning people from every corner of the world to visit. See the temples, the hutongs and explore the outdoor markets. Whatever you want to do, China has something for you. You only need to ask.

Sydney, Australia
If you ever wanted to go further afield, Sydney is going to call you, and you won't be able to say no. Sydney is very different from any other place in the world, with welcoming people, a vast business district to enjoy and everything from crashing waves on the bay to the beautiful parks. Sydney is spoilt for green space, and given that it's a city, you'd expect a bank of grey and silver wherever you go. Not so, not with Sydney. National parks, the harbour where Captain James Cook once sailed and began English colonisation and the Sydney Museum are all to be seen. You never have to go very far to feel you're in a different place, Sydney has everything you'd want from a city with a space to relax, too.

London, England
Lastly, London. We couldn't miss out London. You want to get that vibe of fun and excitement, and you'll feel it the moment you arrive. Shopping, the West End theater district, the museums, the Tower of London where you can see Traitor's Gate up close - it's all got to be on your list. View the Crown Jewels and walk along the River Thames from one end of the city to the other. Take a picnic to Hyde Park and sit near to Kensington Palace, soaking up the sunshine in the vast green space with the city bordering it. London lives and breathes its history every day, though you won't find heads on spikes at London Bridge!

The excitement of setting foot in somewhere new is enough to get you off your feet and into a new destination. The buzz of the lights and cars, the people, the coffee smells and market criers; cities have it all in a way that the countryside and the beaches can't match. Everyone goes on vacation to enjoy the sand, sea and sunshine, but a city break could utterly change the game for you. Take the time to book yourself a sprinkle of cities, and you won't ever feel you are missing out on a piece of the history of the world. City life, city vacations and a whole lot of learning later, and you'll be just as hooked as we are on the visits you could make to the cities of the world.
