August 27, 2012 at 8:31 PM | by | ()

They just keep on coming! (Not that we're complaining). FIVE more international city badges on location-based social network Foursquare have just dropped, in time to get you even more psyched for upcoming fall travel.

These newest city badges go to: Vienna, Austria; Casablanca, Morocco; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Guimarães, Portugal; and Kumasi City, Ghana.

How to get the badges: First, follow 4sqCities, and just to be safe, it wouldn't hurt to also follow the individual city lists: Vienna (list), Casablanca (list), Kuala Lumpur (list), Guimarães (list), and Kumasi City (list). Then travel to the cities and clickety-click to check-in to the places on the recommended lists. Five places earns the badge.

BONUS: Las Vegas also just released SEVEN other resort-specific badges with perks attached. Check those out over on our sister site, VegasChatter.

SPOILER ALERT! Here's the unlock text for each of the newest badges:

Vienna, Austria: Blue Danube
You’re in the land of the Hapsburgs, home to ferris wheels and Freudian slips! When you’re not being classy at Castle Schönbrunn or the Philharmonic, you’re likely wolf(gang)ing down wiener schnitzel or dancing it up at U4 Diskothek. Oida.

Casablanca, Morocco: Casa
Awwah! We’ll always have Casablanca. When the sun is shining, we’ll wander to Al Houbous, where vendors boast their brightly colored wares. After a stroll along the corniche, we’ll grab a drink, then catch a flick at Megarama! Moot.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: KL-lite
Where the Gombak and Klang rivers meet, head to the bustling Golden Triangle (by monorail, bus, or LRT)! From the shopping in Bejaya Time Square, to the chicken rice of Jalan Alor and Kampung Baru… KL-lah! So dive on in – the city of dreams awaits!

Guimarães, Portugal: Cidade-berço
Meet up with the gang in the Praça de São Tiago for a drink (ok, maybe a few drinks) and feast on Rojões and Arroz de “Pica no chão.” Stuffed? Snag tickets to a show at Pavilhão Multiusos or stroll around the Parque da Cidade. Porreiro!

Kumasi City, Ghana: Garden City
In the heart of Ghana, you work all day and find yourself at Sweet Pub, sippin’ brews, by night. Dine at Abusua or Mckweon for top-notch eats – because when it comes to fufu, the Garden City knows what’s up
