If you are looking for inspiration to have the best tourism experiences in 2023, there is nothing better than to know the ranking of the best most visited cities in the world in 2022.
After all, we don’t want to be “like-minded”, but we are always curious about why so many people are interested in visiting these places.
To satisfy your curiosity, we brought you Euromonitor International ‘s Top 100 Destination Cities 2022 Index that compares the attractiveness of 100 cities in the world in six categories, which include tourism policy, economic performance, sustainability, infrastructure, health, and safety.
Previously, the index ranked the top destinations only by the number of international arrivals, when the top of the list was led by Asian destinations such as Hong Kong and Bangkok.
Without further ado, let’s get down to business:
