We have outrageous news: Australia is not in the world’s top five fun-and-culture-filled destinations.
Well, that’s only according to mrgamez.com, but still. We’re pretty sure it was a massive mistake and someone will call with an apology any minute.
Until then, we’ve gathered up the top five (with pictures) for you to drool over – and maybe to give you a little teeny bit of travel inspo.
The list is based on a whole different range of metrics and findings; from the number of amusement parks to the number of bars and restaurants, plus how close everything is together (easy to get to = more fun amiright).
And it appears good ol’ Aus isn’t even on the radar – but it’s whatever.
So wipe those tears away and start booking flights, because we’ve got the best of the best, right here.
1. The Netherlands
The Netherlands boasts a huge number of museums, concert halls and ~cafes~, but is also famous for it’s quaint cities with reflective canals and friendly locals.
Beautiful clear water washing up on windswept desolate beaches sound pretty good to us. Cyprus also has almost 200 national attractions, 31 casinos and 32 museums. Did someone say culture?
Small but mighty, Belgium has almost 300 national attractions, 50 museums and 45 amusement, animal and water parks. And don’t forget where Belgium waffles come from (hint, hint).
4. United Kingdom
Do we really need to explain? There’s concert halls, world-famous art galleries, Michelin Star restaurants, infamous bars and restaurants mixed in with a few UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We accept defeat at your hands, UK.
Germany has the second highest number of amusement, animal and water parks, which all probably come second to it’s bustling cities. Plus, Oktoberfest.
