Cape Town - For a seasoned traveller, every city has something on offer. But which ones have the most history, art, food and music to discover? The Netherlands capital proves a winner, it seems...

Looking at the thirty most popular tourist destinations around the world, a new interactive guide uses the number of theatres, museums, art galleries, Michelin-starred restaurants, concert halls and more to find the cities with the most to do, see, and experience. 

While us South Africans know that those things aren't the only traits that make a destination great... we love exploring those cities too.

Whether you’re looking for your next holiday, want to know more about the world’s most visited cities, or just want to see which cities really are the most cultured, it's useful to check out a new guide to the world’s most cultured cities, put together by TotallyMoney.com. 

According to Joe Gardiner, TotallyMoney.com’s head of brand and communications, “Much of a city’s culture is in its atmosphere and its history. Different locations will appeal to different visitors, but the guide aims to let travellers know what cultural experiences the world’s biggest tourist destinations have to offer before they go.”
