#890 Ushuaia, Argentina

Few places in the world can claim superlatives, but many like to do it. Ushuaia's claim to fame is that it is the world's southern-most city, and there are no disputes: it's too cold here to deny it! The end of the world, and yet the gateway to the beautiful Tierra del Fuego National Park and a hot cruise ship destination for both around South America cruises and for thsoe departing for Antartica.

Originally settled as a penal colony and by British missionaries, but now it is one of the best paid cities in Argentina. Sitting in front of the Martial mountains with both winter and summer sports, it is a spectacular location.
