Visit a Culturally Rich Destination Like President Obama

President Barack Obama will be heading to Cairo next month, and it has been claimed that Egyptian officials hope he'll choose the 1,000-year-old Al-Azhar mosque to address the Muslim community. The American Embassy in Cairo claims that no decision has been made on a venue for June 4th. While we're waiting to see exactly where President Obama will end up, why not plan our own stops at luxury hotels in culturally rich locations?

Most travelers, no matter where they are jetting off to, want to catch breathtaking sites and great museums. Thanks to a recent list compiled by Virgin Airlines' Virgin Vacations, we know which spots are guaranteed to delight. The number one place named by Virgin Vacations? Paris, France. The Musee du Louvre got the honor by being a former palace and housing the Mona Lisa. If Paris sounds like a great spot to visit, try the Hotel de Crillon for an unforgettable experience--it comes with Exclusive Complimentary Perks when booked through What a Hotel!

Have you already been to Paris and are looking for something more exotic? The State Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia happens to hold the Guinness Book of World Record's acknowledgement for the World's Largest Painting Collection, which is housed in six buildings and totals over three million works of art. To check out this massive collection of Western and Russian art (among other treats), try staying at the Grand Hotel Europe, St. Petersburg, which offers a lengthy list of perks when you book with The Grand Hotel Europe, St. Petersburg received a Five Star Diamond Award and is located in the heart of the city--perfect for sightseeing when you're not at the museum.

If you're not planning on heading abroad this summer, don't forget about New York City! With the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Guggenheim Museum, you're bound to find something cool and enriching.
