well New York City is a top tourist attraction with many famous sights (including skyscrapers), but I have heard from foreign friends that lots of people hestitate to visit because of so much security hassles at airport...so it probably slides down a bit ...

Thailand has 2 cities on top 10 and Italy has 2 cities on top 10 WOW

Congrats to BKK and CM.

So sad that Beirut (ranked no.9) is now at war.
Seeing the destruction in Beirut's city center from the Middle-East section on SSC really upset me.
