Glasgow: Nat Geo Traveler’s Top 20

Nov 23, 2015 by

Glasgow hasn’t always been a top destination spot for tourists, who hear all about the city’s crime rate, and its gritty, industrial exterior.

Well, forget that outdated description of Glasgow: it’s Scotland’s hottest city, according to National Geographic!

Nat Geo’s features editor, Amy Alipio, is an enthusiastic supporter of Scotland’s largest city:

“Glasgow landed on our list for 2016 because it’s one of the most exciting cities in the world right now. 

“Its art scene is just too hot to ignore. Case in point: the Turner Prize is in Scotland for the first time, and the exhibit culminates at Glasgow’s Tramway gallery in January. 

“But fans the world over know that it’s the city’s unrivalled music scene that really embodies Glasgow’s energy and swagger.”
