Istanbul in Turkey was the most visited city in 2023, according to a report from Euromonitor International.

Dubai was last year’s third most visited destination and the Middle Eastern hotspot was also named the world’s best holiday in a Tripadvisor ranking.

Antalya, another Turkish hotspot, was the world’s fourth most visited city. The Turkish city is located on the country’s Turquoise Coast.

Paris, expected to have a bumper tourism year with the upcoming Olympics, was the world’s fifth most visited destination.
