The Niagara Falls in North America also featured in the list on second place. The falls have become a popular tourist destination for over a century now and a lot of people associate them with breathtaking beauty.  Trip advisors acknowledge that a trip in North America cannot be complete without a visit at the Niagara Falls. Coming across cultural destinations in this day and age is not easy. For many tourists getting a glimpse of the world most preserved heritages and cultural landmarks is an important priority in the To-do list.

The Eiffel Tower in France also made it into the top ten cultural attraction list. The jewel of Paris is a major cultural landmark that receives in excess of 6.8 million visitors every year.  The tower has been standing tall for 203 years and according to many tour and travel experts, the Eiffel tower in Paris is probably the most popular landmark in the world today.  The Eiffel tower though is not the only cultural destination in Paris. The Musee du Louvre, which is the biggest national museum in France, is a perfect stop for tourist visiting "The City of Lights". The Musee du Louvre is among some of the best cultural destinations in the world and as many trip advisors observe, the artistic heritage of French culture showcased here will surely excite anyone. The museum has over 380,000 artifacts in its collection.

Alongside the Times Square, New York is also home to the Empire State building which many cultural enthusiasts say is the symbol of the city. Standing tall on the island of Manhattan, the deco art skyscraper is a magnificent landmark that attracts tourists from far and wide. Every country in the world has a cultural center or symbol.  Although the United Kingdom has a lot of cultural monuments, few can compare to the British Museum in London. The Museum has been up and running since 1753 and according to historians, the six million artifacts on display at the museum document rich human history. The British Museum is popular among cultural enthusiast especially the Egyptian Mummies, The Rosetta Stone and the Elgin Marbles.

The main goal of travelling is to learn and have fun. From a cultural and historical perspective though, the Coliseum in Italy is among one of the best cultural stops in Europe. The coliseum is an imposing beauty and symbol of the ancient roman republic. Even though half of it has fallen off to ruin, the monument is still a major global stop for cultural tourists.  The Grand Canyon National park is also a popular tourist destination.  The Park has a unique landscape, breathtaking pine and fir forests, painted deserts, sandstone canyons, mesas and plateaus, and volcanic and geologic features. The park is also endowed with the magnificent Colorado River and its perennial streams, and waterfalls. Travelling is wonderful and according to many tour and travel experts, it is also a very good opportunity to learn.
