You know Rio de Janeiro … but do you know Punta del Este? You know Rome…but do you know Siena? You know Beijing… but do you know Xi’an? Having visited and enjoyed seven of the ten on the list, I agree with most of these from The Huffington Post, though I wouldn’t necessarily consider some of them “off the beaten path”.
Ask a random person and they can easily rattle off the famous cities around the world, and the list will undoubtedly include New York, Paris, and London. Paris is Paris and London is London, but that shouldn’t mean it’s the only city worth checking out. If you’re already planning to shell out the cash to fly across the pond – or even the world – these lesser-known places deserve adding to your itinerary. They’re way cooler than most people think.
