While gamblers' paradise Las Vegas is the globetrotters' second favourite
choice, London beat off some strong competition to come in at a very
respectable third place.

The survey also reveals that, although the gold and silver medals go to the
US, six out of the Top Ten cities are in Europe. As well as London; Paris,
Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam and Madrid all make it into the world's favourite
list showing that Europe is the clubbing continent of choice. Los Angeles and
Bangkok, the only Asian city in the list, complete the Top Ten.

"New York and Las Vegas always provide an amazing travel adventure. But it is
the variety amongst the European cities that makes them so interesting and
exciting for travellers from all around the globe," said Alison Couper from "There are many different experiences to be gained on the
continent, whether it's a night out in the infamous clubs of Berlin, the
floating restaurants in Amsterdam or the small, intimate bars and music venues
of Paris - although it's nice to see that London is coming in above even these
notorious party capitals!"
