The listing is based upon 2013's visitor enquiry and booking trends.

Undeterred by the global economic downturn, both rental property owners and holidaymakers have benefited from the wealth of Dubai apartments and villas available in desirable and prestigious locations including The Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina.

The list placed Cyprus on the second spot because of its appeal to budget-conscious holidaymaker along with the availability of low-cost flights. The country also offers an abundance of affordable holiday rental apartments and villas in popular beach resorts such as Paphos, Coral Bay and Larnaca

Similarly, Costa del Sol, a region in the south of Spain secured the third palce, due to wide availability of Spanish villas and apartments to suit every taste and budget and around 160 kilometres of golden, sun-kissed beaches.

The fourth city, Paris, has already been placed as the number-one city to visit in 2014 in its annual ‘Best in Travel' list by Lonely Planet travel guide. Though the city is on the expensive side, the city also offers cost-effective alternative accommodation for families and groups.
