Five Must-Visit Places Around the World

Looking for some destinations to add to your bucket list? Few things compete with travelling around the world and taking in the sights.

Our planet offers us so many natural and man-made wonders, so it makes sense to experience as many as you can, while you can. 

Below we explore some of the most famous destinations that you’ll undoubtedly want to add to your checklist. 

1. Paris 

The city of love and romance. Paris is a destination admired around the world and high on quite a few bucket lists. There’s plenty to attract visitors: the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe and Notre-Dame Cathedral. 

Attractions aside, the atmosphere, architecture and cultural features are perfect for city strolls and easy living. Dine in style at some of the best patisseries and cafes during the day and enjoy world-class cuisine for dinner a little later on. 

2. Rome 

Another European capital that’s famous around the world is Rome. Its modern and ancient history is second to none and there’s plenty to enjoy for all tastes. Explore the extraordinary Colosseum and remnants of the incredible Roman empire to your heart’s content. 

Again, the food is a memorable feature of the city, with pasta and Roman-style pizza absolute must-haves. You’d do well to go hungry on a trip to Rome!  

3. Amman 

A destination not on many bucket lists, but certainly worth featuring, is Amman. It’s the capital city of Jordan and is one of the longest continuously inhabited cities in the world – spanning around 9000 years. 

There’s plenty to see and experience in the city itself, such as huge Roman amphitheatres, temples and Arabic palaces. But it’s also a great starting or end point for more extensive tours of Jordan.

The country offers unbelievable cultural history and one of the seven wonders of the world, the ancient city of Petra. It’s built almost entirely into rock and is truly spectacular for people of all ages. 

4. New York 

If you’re one for famous movie locations and bustling cities, you have to visit New York at least once in your life. It’s instantly recognisable from the tremendous skyscrapers and yellow taxi cabs. Visiting the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and the Rockefeller Center are bucket list items for so many people. 

Big portions for every meal will ensure you’re never left unsatisfied. Explore the various neighbourhoods and even take in a Yankees, Knicks or Mets game while you’re there. Any trip to New York is one you’ll remember for a lifetime!   

5. Kyoto

For a taste of traditional Japan and its rich cultural heritage, Kyoto is an absolute gem. With its stunning temples, serene gardens, and picturesque streets, Kyoto offers a unique blend of old-world charm and modern vibrancy.

Don’t miss the iconic Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine, the historic Kiyomizu-Dera Temple, and the beautiful Arashiyama Bamboo Grove. And of course, indulge in delicious Japanese cuisine, from sushi and ramen to matcha sweets. Kyoto is a destination that will leave a lasting impression on any traveller.
