Team Alloj - Article The 10 most touristic cities in the world updated on 17/04/2024


In first position, we find the city of Bangkok. With 22 million tourists a year, the Thai capital is the most touristic city in the world. Known for its lively nightlife, the metropolis also attracts many visitors for its ease of access to the Thai islands, known for its white sand and translucent waters. There are a few kosher restaurants that cater to Jewish and local travelers abiding by kosher dietary laws. We find the Chabad House Bangkok Kosher Restaurant or the DANI restaurant and its Israeli cuisine.


Just behind Bangkok, travelers find themselves in Paris, of course. The French capital attracts 20 million tourists a year. It must be said that the city includes many emblematic monuments such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame, the Pompidou center and of course the Louvres museum. In Paris, a multitude of kosher restaurants, kosher grocery stores and synagogues are located in the capital to satisfy the Jewish community of Paris. Among them are the iconic restaurants Le Kavod, located rue Marmoze, Tikoun Olam in the 12th arrondissement and The Reserve, a kosher bakery in the 16th arrondissement.


In third position, we find London. As with Paris, the city is full of emblematic monuments that appeal to visitors from all over the world. Big Ben, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, and the London Eye are must-sees. There are a few kosher restaurants like Tony Page. Here you can eat delicious kosher burgers, grilled meats, steaks, a very tender roast chicken… in short, the must of the must! Even fish are offered and all the dishes are very nicely presented. Craving kosher Israeli food? Meet at the Hummus Bar.

4 - DUBAÏ 

Dubai slips into fourth position in the ranking. Tourism has increased by 11% in just a few years. Modern and dynamic metropolis located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf. The city is renowned for its incredible growth and rapid development, which has made it one of the most sought-after destinations in the world for travelers. Known for its skyscrapers, tourists come to see the impressive Burj Khalifa, the tallest man-made structure ever built. Dubai being a cosmopolitan city and welcoming expats from all over the world, kosher options have increased in recent years. For example, you can eat at Kosher Place which offers a variety of kosher dishes, ranging from traditional Jewish specialties to international dishes or Armani/Kaf. Located in the Armani Hotel at Burj Khalifa, Armani offers kosher Italian cuisine with stunning city views from floor 3 of Dubai's iconic tower.


In fifth position, we find Singapore. Despite its small size, Singapore offers a variety of tourist attractions. Among the must-sees are the famous Marina Bay Sands with its impressive rooftop infinity pool, the Gardens by the Bay, light and sound shows and the Universal Studios Singapore theme park. There are only two kosher restaurants: The Wandering Israeli where you can eat falafel and shawarma, and Maoz Vegetarian, an international kosher vegetarian fast food chain.


Also in Malaysia, the sixth most visited city in the world is Kuala Lumpur. Kuala Lumpur is famous for its impressive skyscrapers and iconic buildings. The Petronas Twin Tower, which was the tallest in the world for a time, is one of the city's main attractions. The panoramic view from the bridge between the two towers is a breathtaking sight. Kosher restaurant options here are very limited. There is only one kosher restaurant: the Sal'Restaurant. The restaurant is overseen and certified kosher by the Beth Din of Malaysia.


In seventh position, this time we find a city from the United States. And it is New York which has nearly 13 million tourists a year. The city that never sleeps is known for its emblematic places known throughout the world such as the Empire State Building, Central Park, Time Square or the Statue of Liberty, but also for its typical American cuisine. New York is a cosmopolitan city that is home to a large Jewish community, which means it offers an abundance of options for kosher restaurants. Among them: Kat'z Deli, Shalom Japan, Izzy's BBQ Addiction, Mike's Bistro and many more.


Istanbul is in eighth place in the ranking. Istanbul is Turkey's largest and most populous city. Tourists appreciate it for its diverse population with Turkish, Arab, Greek, Armenian, Jewish, Kurdish and more influences. This cultural diversity is reflected in the cuisine, architecture, traditions and customs, providing visitors with an authentic and varied experience. A few kosher restaurants exist in Istanbul like Tike and Rubin Kosher Restaurant.


In ninth place, we find Tokyo with 12 million tourists per year. Tokyo offers a lively nightlife with its bars, izakayas (Japanese tapas bars), karaoke, nightclubs and restaurants open until the wee hours of the morning. The Shibuya district is particularly lively at night. Despite the small Jewish community in Japan, there are a few kosher restaurants. There is the Jewish community center: the Chabad House Tokyo Kosher Restaurant, the Pita Tokyo Kosher Restaurant specializing in Israeli dishes and the Maple Tree Tokyo to be able to eat kosher sushi and kosher Japanese dishes.


Once again, a Turkish city comes in tenth place: Antalya. Antalya is renowned for its stunning sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. Popular beach resorts like Lara Beach, Konyaalti Beach and Belek attract vacationers looking to relax and soak up the sun. There is very little kosher in Antalya. A restaurant is nevertheless located in the city: Cakir Sofrasi Kosher Restaurant, which offers typical Turkish and kosher food.
