Traveling around the world can be a daunting experience, even if it is a joy to see sights from other parts of the globe. Many travelers focus on cities that may be considered “welcoming” to foreigners. With world politics changing almost daily, no one wants to end up in a city where hostilities may follow. Booking.com put together a list of the “Most Welcoming” cities in the world and it features several locations most travelers may not recognize, along with a single entry from the United States.
To pull together this list, Booking.com looked at millions upon millions of traveler reviews. Based on that information, this list includes the cities that ranked the highest for accommodations, along with local experiences, and what is considered a “warm welcome.” The list includes several cities with beautiful beaches, natural attractions for the outdoor type, and other alluring aspects that harken back to civilizations in the past.
Arraial d’ Ajuda, Brazil is listed as the most-welcoming city in the world. It is a small beach town that is the perfect destination for someone looking to relax. While those beaches may be the top attraction that this city has to offer, it does have a historic and small bustling area to give travelers a full experience while there.
Depending on where your opinion stands about the United States, you may be surprised or baffled as to why the country has only one entry. Moad, Utah is recognized at number six thanks to its natural landscapes and proximity to national parks in the country.
