If one has to find the most exotic region in the United Kingdom for a vacation destination, many would normally travel in Scotland as a first choice. Among the many places in the British Isles, Scotland proves to be the biggest territory that claims a different heritage (hence, Scottish). And if one has to select the destination in Scotland, one would either end up in Edinburgh or Glasgow. Now here are a number of reasons why tourists would visit Edinburgh

Whisky Capital. Anyone who has heard of a type of liquor called Scotch should not be surprised of its namesake country of origin. Whiskey is just one of Scotland's best products apart from golf. The best place to sample the best whiskey brands in the world is the capital city of Edinburgh.

Post-medieval Splendor. Another key reason tourists would visit Edinburgh is a pleasurable sightseeing. The Royal Mile that paves the entire plaza of the city's Old Town remains to be one of the most scenic urban tourist attractions in Scotland.

Old Town Bagpipes. If there is one last reason for travelers to visit Edinburgh, it is the appreciation of its unique musical instrument. The country's best bagpipe parades are held in Edinburgh Castle. The harmony between flat bass and shrill high pitches creates one of the best solemn epic pieces in traditional Western music.

Despite the relative popularity of Edinburgh, there are many reasons why travelers would visit Glasgow. These are the following tourist draws:

Curry Capital. England has a very proud tradition of multicultural diversity and it is the one thing this Scottish city shares with its southern neighbors. Glasgow is considered the unofficial curry capital of the United Kingdom because of the ongoing popularity of the once-imported Indian cuisine.

Colorful Ghetto Art. One of the most understated advantages tourists witnessed when they visit Glasgow is that most of the neighborhoods sport a colorful street art. In fact, some of the best huge-scale graffiti works painted at building and walkway walls can put downtown Los Angeles in shame.  

UNESCO City of Music. If there is one compelling reason for tourists to visit Glasgow, it is for their music culture. This city is the official home of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, National Theatre of Scotland and the Scottish Ballet.
