The best attractions in the city are its endless cluster of nightclubs and cafes by the river and the iconic Gothic architecture that doesn’t fail to incite mass envy when your pictures turn up on your friends’ social newsfeed (not saying you should care about what others think). While you are there, try out the delectable Dutch desserts and European delicacies.
5. Paris, France
Known widely across all cultures as the undisputable City of Love, head off to sweet old Paris that is one of the most romantic places to visit on your birthday, especially if you have your partner along. Pop a bottle of rose wine on the top of the Eiffel Tower if you truly understand the concept of living life king-size, or visit the Louvre to fully appreciate the true power and genius of the Museum’s collection of art. If you want an offbeat birthday celebration by the beach, head off to Monte Carlo in Monaco and pump it up in style on a yacht cruise in the French Riviera!

9. Bangkok, Thailand
Bangkok, the bustling capital city of Siam or Suvarnabhumi, literally meaning the Land of Gold (now called, Thailand) is an up-and-coming winner when it comes to places to visit for birthdays.
