Hot men: Where do you find them? (Photo by 23049027@N03)

When it comes to talking about the hotness of the local population, male travelers tend to take the lead.

I can’t tell you how often I have been surrounded in a hostel by male backpackers just going on and on about the women they see on the streets.

Fair enough, there are plenty of countries with insanely beautiful women (like Colombia), but this post is not about that.

Instead, I’d like to talk about the destinations making women weak in the knees. These are the places where women dream of being asked on a date, invited to watch a sunset, or whisked away on a summer fling.

Ladies, this post is for you. Here are 5 destinations around the world swarming with hot guys!

1. Pacific Islands

When you think of men with a Pacific island background, you might conjure up thoughts of the Rock. Known for their muscle-laden bodies, tall stature, dark skin and eyes, these men are dreamy the world around.

From Samoa to Polynesia and even including New Zealand, the islands lying in the South Pacific Ocean are a goldmine for male eye candy.

Andi Perullo even commented on the men of Easter Island saying, “I have never seen in such an abundance so many tall, dark, buff (and I mean buff), exotic, sexy men before!”

2. The Balkans

The countries of the Balkans spring to mind simply for their somewhat chiseled and muscular built men.

In direct contrast to the men of Italy and Spain for example — the ones that might spend more time on their appearance than a typical woman — these Balkan men are natural and masculine.

Balkan countries include Serbia, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Greece.

3. Western Europe

I found this hard to compose a list of only five areas, especially since so many countries of Western Europe could be found on it.

Western European men are often considered quite hot by the ladies, and it makes sense when you think about Italy, France, Spain, Germany and the Netherlands (just to name a few!).

You’ve got your uber-romantic dark, slick Italians, and you’ve also got the French men that just exude passion on all levels.

The Germans and the Dutch are a bit more subdued, but there are those tall, well-dressed and intelligent men that are swoon-worthy.

4. Brazil

Just like the islander men above, Brazilian men are known for being tall, buff and handsome. Only these South American hotties also have the Latin flair, and that Latino confidence can be a major attraction for women.

You might also associate the Brazilian man with loving the beach, loving sports (soccer and capoira come to mind) and some really tight swimwear.

Of course, you could add Argentinian, Colombian and Chilean men to the South American hot mix, but it does seem that Brazil gets the most attention by traveling females.

5. Australia

For as long as I can remember, Australian men have been an attractive bunch to me, and obviously I finally succumbed to temptation and partnered up with an Aussie man of my own.

Maybe it’s their blokey nature, the laid-back attitude, or just that incredible accent that draws us in. For some, it’s the stereotypical blond-haired and fit surfers, and for others its the outdoors-loving rugby types.

And, it also helps that famous hotties like Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe are such captivating specimens from Down Under.

Have your say. Where do you think has some of the world’s hottest men, and why?
