The Top 20 Places On The World’s Bucket List

This rating will make you dream of places close and distant, no matter how many places are on your bucket list.

Bali is the top bucket list destination in the globe, according to a recent survey.
What destinations are on your trip wish list? If you’re like most people, the more you travel, the longer your bucket list becomes.

Some of the most gorgeous sites on the planet are among the top 20 bucket list destinations in the globe. Countries with naturally gorgeous scenery and world-famous landmarks came out on top: white sand beaches make up 22% of the list’s choices, while iconic cities make up 52%.

Consumers were also more inclined to add a trip to their list if they saw it on social media, according to Big 7 Travel, and 33% of people explore holiday possibilities on their Instagram feed.

A fascinating statistic discovered in the study is that most people have a bucket list of only 11 sites on their wish list, with the goal of seeing seven of them during their lifetime. This rating will make you dream of places close and distant, no matter how many places are on your bucket list.

1. The island of Bali, Indonesia

“There are beaches, volcanoes, Komodo dragons, and jungles with elephants, orangutans, and tigers to be found.” In a nutshell, it’s bliss. Because Bali is such a popular bucket list destination for 2019, it’s likely you’ve seen an image of it on social media at least once in the last seven days.”

2. New Orleans, Louisiana

“The bustling city is definitely worth the journey, noted for its street music, celebratory vibe, and mixing pot of French, African, and American cultures. NOLA is a city full of surprises around every corner and should be on everyone’s bucket list.”

3. Kerry, Ireland

” One of Ireland’s most scenic counties is located in the west of the country. Kerry’s mountains, lakes, and coastlines are picture-perfect, even without Killarney National Park. Its attractiveness is enhanced by its peculiar tiny villages, such as Dingle.”

4. Marrakesh, Morocco

“Mosques, palaces, and lush gardens abound in this historic walled city.” Because of the colour of the brick walls that encircle the city, it is known as The Red City. The medina has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.”

5. Sydney, Australia

“Sydney is regarded as one of the world’s greatest and most recognisable cities. Amazing things to do abound in the city; stunning beaches, great cafes, and world-class entertainment can be found just about anywhere.”

6. Maldives

“This Indian Ocean tropical republic is made up of over 1,000 coral islands. With white sand beaches, underwater villas and restaurants, and dazzling blue waters, it is home to some of the world’s most luxury hotel resorts.”

7. Paris, France

“Paris is on many people’s bucket lists because it is one of the most iconic cities in the world. There are so many iconic landmarks to visit here: the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral—the list goes on.”

8. Dubai, United Arab Emirates

“Dubai, the United Arab Emirates’ high-flying city, is one of the most glamorous spots you’ll ever visit, and it’s especially popular with Big 7 Travel readers.”

9. Bora Bora, French Polynesia

“Tahiti’s most famous island is Bora Bora. How do you like the sound of overwater bungalows and undersea adventures? It’s all we could expect in a bucket-list destination in our opinion.”

10. New York, NY

“New York is one of the most interesting states in the United States. With stunning upland scenery, world-class cuisine and culture, and more things to do than you could ever do in a lifetime, Upstate New York is a must-visit destination. It’s nearly impossible to narrow it down because each of the city’s five boroughs has its own unique characteristics.”

11. Dubrovnik, Croatia

“Those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik,” George Bernard Shaw once stated. It’s no surprise that Dubrovnik is so popular, with its twisting lanes, cliffside beach bars, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Old Town.”

12. Edinburgh, Scotland

“With the iconic Edinburgh Castle hanging over the city, a plethora of culture, and delightfully friendly locals, this is one of the world’s best city holidays.”

13. Rome, Italy

“Whether it’s your first visit to Rome or your 50th, the best thing about this city is that you’ll constantly discover something new every time you walk through its picturesque streets.”

14. Bhutan’s Paro Valley, Bhutan

The monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs) and stunning vistas of Paro Valley are well-known. Bhutan is a mystery country nestled between China and India that prides itself on sustainable tourism. Paro Taktsang, a Himalayan Buddhist sacred shrine, can be found here.”

15. Jaipur, India

“Due to its pale terracotta buildings, Jaipur is known as the ‘Pink City.’ This was done on the Maharaja’s command to impress the visiting Prince Albert during his 1876 trip of India (Sawai Ram Singh). It is still unlawful to paint buildings in any other colour today.”

16. Waikato, New Zealand

“Massive underground caves, verdant rainforest, and the buzzy metropolis of Hamilton may all be found in the Waikato region of New Zealand’s North Island. But what is the area’s main draw? On the Lord of the Rings set, a Middle-earth adventure. The original Hobbit holes from the filming of the movie can still be found in the Hobbiton Movie Set.”

17. Cuba’s capital, Havana

“Cuba’s capital is a riot of colour and about 500 years old. Havana is a photographer’s paradise, with brightly painted buildings and vintage cars.”

18. Tokyo, Japan

“Visiting Tokyo feels like visiting the future—flashing neon lights, cutting-edge technology—yet there’s still a strong sense of culture and history.”

19. Antarctica

“Antarctica, the world’s southernmost continent, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Nothing compares to the great remoteness of this snowy location. It won’t be easy, but you’ll be rewarded with stunning vistas of the white tundra, icy sea kayaking, and whale sightings.”

20. Vancouver, Canada

“Vancouver is surrounded by sea while still being close to the mountains, and it offers world-class art, restaurants, and a plethora of other things to keep you entertained.”
