As an avid traveller I am always looking for new places to visit and after MasterCard released their annual Global Destination Cities Index it made me even more inspired to book a trip away. Whether its Italy or Hong Kong

The data from the index looked at the travel spending of tourists from all across the globe whether it was airline ticket purchases, souvenir purchases and other travel spending data.

Here are the results, 13 Cities Every Tourist Must Visit, starting with…

    I’ve been in Melbourne for 2 days and I’m already in love with it! I always thought I wanted to live in London for a couple of years post-grad but here is so much cleaner, easier to get around (amazing public transport network including free trams), investment in public amenities, character and history and new development, not to mention friendlier! It should be on the list.
