Traveling is probably the best way not only how to see new places and learn about new cultures, but also a way to get new experiences and a lifetime of memories. And although you can travel virtually to any place in the world, there are some places that get more tourist attention than others, and these places could be called the most popular travel destination.
France has always been a hugely popular travel destination for people from all over the world and in 2015 France was the most tourist visited country with over 80 million visitors in a years span. France is a great travel destination because the City of Light and Love Paris is located there with Eiffel Tower and Louvre being in this city.
