Paris : the top international tourist destination


I searched the net for the top tourist destination in the world. The answer that came up is Paris, the capital city of France. It is followed by Spain and the US. Data published by the UN World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) on international tourist arrivals ratifies this. The tourism figures for year 2006 can also be viewed at this Info-please page. The figure of 79 million tourists for France in 2006 is way ahead of second place Spain (58.5 million).

Paris and its surrounding suburbs, known as the Ile-de-France, boast a population of roughly 10.5 million people. Just over two million of those live in Paris proper. The three most popular tourist attractions in France are the Disneyland Paris, the Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre.

Looking to visit Paris in near future. Finding accommodation online is not tough these days. But here is a site - Paris Hotels, which you can use to find accommodation in Paris.
