Hiking and trekking have their own attractions, but there is no denying the fact that cities have a charm of their own. From Glasgow to Los Angeles, the buzz of the cities enchants and attracts travelers. And just like no two mountains are the same, no two cities are the same as well. Given here is the list of six cities that must feature in any ardent traveler's list.

1. Marrakech, Morocco

2. Los Angeles, USA

Los Angeles, or LA as it is popularly known as has an infectious energy of its own. The multicultural and multifaceted city has a hypnotic pull of its own that makes you feel like coming back to it again and again. The must-visits on LA tour are the walk of Fame, Hollywood, and Disneyland.

3. Glasgow, Scotland

4. New York City, USA

The first-timer to the city has the liberty to get as touristy as possible. So, take your fill of the top places like Statue of Liberty, the Met, Times Square, and Central Park. But if this is your second visit to the city or if you are willing to take a different route, venture into the quirky shops, quaint delis and bustling little bars.

5. Chiang Mai, Thailand

The three words to describe Chiang Mai in Thailand are relaxed, bustling and deferential. The places to see are plenty ranging from Night Bazaar, the National Museum, to the Botanic Gardens.
