Dubai is a destination that mixes modern culture with history, adventure and world-class shopping and entertainment.”

Bali, London, Rome, Paris, Cancun, Crete, Marrakech, Dominican Republic and Istanbul appeared in the list of top 10 cities. London retained its position as Europe’s number one destination.
