Besides, if you don’t check out these coolest metros in the world, you’ll be missing out big time. In recent polls of travelers and guides alike, these urban meccas consistently ranked highly for the architecture, the artistry or simply the uniqueness of their metro stops – including popular travel destinations like Paris, Santiago, Naples, Shanghai and Stockholm (which rates a couple of entries on the list). Also in the top 10 for aesthetics we found Moscow, St. Petersburg, Dubai, and Munich. And last, but certainly not least, don’t miss checking out the sleek and ultra-modern Canary Wharf in London or the kaleidoscope spectacle of the Formosa Boulevard stop in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan.
Getting to the right spot to start your guided tour couldn’t be easier in these traveler friendly cities, and you’ll be saving a few of those precious travel dollars to boot. (For more about the Paris underground specifically, check out our article about that city’s underbelly.)
