France is one of the top five travel destinations in the entire world, as it has everything you need for a great vacation: a romantic city such as Paris, beautiful sandy beaches, a rolling countryside, spectacular mountain views and fine cuisine. Throughout this article, I am going to highlight a few things to see while traveling in France.
Eiffel Tower – Paris, France
The Eiffel Tower is located on the Champ de Mars in Paris, next to the River Seine. The tower is the tallest building in Paris and was named after its designer, Gustave Eiffel. It is also known as one of the most recognizable structures in the entire world and the Eiffel Tower is the top tourist attraction of France.
Chateau de Versailles – Versailles, France
The Chateau de Versailles is the royal palace located in Versailles, just outside of Paris. It is one of the top attractions in France and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The palace was built in the 17th century by Louis XIV.

The Musee du Louvre, also known as the Louvre Museum in English, is the largest national museum in France. The museum is a major landmark of Paris and is housed in the Louvre Palace. The Louvre Museum contains over 375,000 objects and 35,000 works of art; this is a massive collection of artifacts and art that is sure to pique the interest of everyone that visits.
Promenade des Anglais – Nice, France
Nice has an abundance of beauty and what better way to see this beauty than by taking a stroll down the Promenade des Anglais! The Promenade des Anglais is Nice’s famous seafront esplanade that runs the length of the bay, with chairs lining the promenade and overlooking the ocean, perfect for a romantic sunset stroll or for people watching! There are also many fine cafés, restaurants, and shops to stop into along the way.
Jamaica has always been a very popular destination for romantic travel including honeymoons and getaways for couples of all ages looking for a place to sight see and relax. In recent years, Jamaica has been growing in popularity with families and young people looking for a vacation spot that offers a little bit of everything for all to enjoy.
Few people planning holiday their vacation realize Jamaica is one of the largest islands in the Caribbean. It stretches 145 miles from east to west with a range of mountains running almost entirely the length of the island and rising to over 7,400 ft. in the east, at their highest point.
But why has Jamaica remained such a popular destination and why does it continue to attract tourists in increasing numbers? Jamaica has morphed into a tourist-motivated destination, offering many excellent hotels, inns and guests houses. There are several airports, highways and ports from which travelers can gain full access to all of Jamaica’s points of interest. Jamaica offers several all-inclusive resorts, such as Sandals and Couples chains. The most popular destinations in Jamaica, where Sandals and Couples have resorts, are Port Antonio and Ocio Rios in the east and Montego Bay and Negril in the west. These resorts manage to capture the natural beauty and wonder of the island while at the same time being some of the most luxurious accommodations on the island.
The independent hotels are equally spectacular, from old colonial classics, modern hideaways and grand villas. The local residents with their vibrant culture add even more flavor to the already rich experience that is Jamaica. The more the vacationing sector develops, the more Jamaica is becoming an economy built on tourism. And that means that the Jamaican people want tourists to come and enjoy themselves. Jamaica is also the largest English-speaking country in the Caribbean.
The vegetation is a mixture of luxuriant tropical forest and lush coffee plantations, offering visitors a chance to see the production of one of the most universally consumed beverages in the world. Jamaica is lush with every aspect of a tropical paradise, including the weather. Jamaica has over 300 days of sunshine throughout the year, even during the wet seasons. Daytime temperatures are fairly constant year-round and lower in mountain areas. Heat and humidity can be felt during all times of the year and the warmest months are from July to October, especially on the coast. The region is prone to hurricanes from July to October. Although a direct hit on Jamaica is rare, if you are unfortunate enough to be there when a hurricane passes within a few hundred miles, there can be a lot of rain.
