Which would you choose, New York or Paris? TripAdvisor’s 2018 awards for the world’s best destinations are out, and while New York is the top in the USA, it’s only 10th in the world, behind many popular European cities topped by Paris at No. 1. This goes to show the international nature of many people’s travelling habits or dreams. After all, who hasn’t wanted to go on a stroll through the streets of Paris early in the morning, crunching down on a fresh baguette? Or, wanted to explore the winding lights and glamourous roads of London town, exploring the Underground and having a jolly aboard the buses?

There are many reasons why people may want to travel to the top ten cities below, and for many Americans there is a burning wish to go abroad to see the world. However, if they plan to fully explore the area they’ll be going to they’ll need transportation. For example, if you plan to set out to the craggy island of Crete, it would be wise to contact a service like rental-center-crete.com beforehand to secure a vehicle to make your way across the island in style and comfort. The same is true of the other locales (though one could argue you’d need a Metro card for Paris, or an Oyster card for London more than a rental car).

You may be curious about which other cities made the list, and can’t wait any longer to find out. Don’t worry, we won’t hold you in trepidation. Here’s the list, from 1 to 10, of the Tripadvisor’s 2018 awards for the world’s best destinations!
