The world is full of incredible places and it can often be difficult to choose which ones to add to your bucket list. If you’re looking for a little inspiration we’ve put together a list of the top places we think everyone should visit before they die!
Cappadocia – Turkey
Transport yourself on an out of this world adventure to the space like landscape of Turkey’s amazing Cappadocia region. The tall, cone-shaped rock formations are known as ‘fairy chimneys’ and as the sun is setting you’ll feel like you’re walking on Mars! Bronze Age homes are carved into vertical cliff faces, canyons house 100 metre deep churches and sunrise hot air ballooning is considered the norm!
Meteora – Greece
The towering clifftop monasteries of Meteora may give you vertigo just looking at them. The name translates to “middle of the sky” and is one of the nation’s most important Greek Orthodox cloisters.
Salar de Uyuni
Celebrated as the largest natural mirror on the planet, Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat with a total footprint of 4,086 square miles. It’s located 3656 meters above sea level and captivates all who visit it into a mesmerising, dreamlike state. Don’t forget your camera!
New York City
Countless dreams have been made in this concrete jungle and if you love the buzz of big cities, hitting the streets of the Big Apple at least once in your life is an absolute must. As well as visiting all the popular tourist sites you should also take the time to explore, discover and get lost in the craziness that is NYC.
Tianzi Mountains – China
Forget the hustle and bustle of Shanghai and Beijing. The majestic Tianzi Mountains reflect a different side of China that many people never get to enjoy. The lush green forests, towering rock formations and 400 million year old mountains will make you feel as though you’ve fallen into an Avatar set.
Angkor Wat – Cambodia
Nothing can quite prepare you for the impressive sight of UNESCO listed Angkor Wat temple, the largest religious monument on the planet. Nearby you’ll find a myriad of smaller, equally as fascinating temples, including Ta Prohm, where Tomb Raider was filmed.
Petra – Jordan
With historians estimating that this ancient city was constructed as early as 312 BC, Jordan is a mecca for those with an infatuation with the past. It’s hailed as the capital city of the Nabataeans an attracts a flood of sightseers every day.
