Bucket List Travel: Our Top 20 Places In The World
We’re all dreaming of our first vacation beyond pandemic life. So to help you out we’ve selected our top 20 places that were voted some of the most desired places to visit.
Big 7 Travel surveyed its 1.5 million social audiences to determine the top 50 bucket list places around the world. Here’s our favourite 20 for you to start dreaming of and what Big 7 had to say about it.
In the study, Big 7 Travel found that people were also more likely to add a destination to their list if they had seen it on social media, and 33% of people research vacation destinations on their Instagram feed.
An interesting factoid uncovered in the study: Most people have an average bucket list of just 11 places, with the hope of visiting seven of those locations during their lifetime.
Bali, Indonesia: “You’ll find beaches, volcanoes, Komodo dragons and jungles sheltering elephants, orangutans and tigers. Basically, it’s paradise. It’s likely you’ve seen an image of Bali on social media at least once in the past seven days, as it’s such a popular bucket list destination.” It is definitely on the beach holiday in the sun list as well.
New Orleans, USA: “The lively city is known for its street music, festive vibe and a melting pot of French, African and American cultures is well worth the trip. NOLA is a city packed with adventures at every turn and should be on everyone’s must-visit list.”
Kerry, Ireland: “All the way west in Ireland is one of the country’s most scenic counties. Kerry’s mountains, lakes and coasts are postcard-perfect, and that’s before you add in Killarney National Park. The unique small towns such as Dingle add to its charm.”
Sydney, Australia: “Sydney is known around the world as one of the greatest and most iconic cities on the planet. Amazing things to do aren’t hard to find; the city has gorgeous beaches, great cafes and world-class entertainment on offer wherever you look.”
The Maldives: “This tropical nation in the Indian Ocean is made up of more than 1,000 coral islands. It’s home to some of the world’s most luxurious hotel resorts, with white sandy beaches, underwater villas and restaurants and bright blue waters.”
Paris, France: “One of the most iconic cities in the world, Paris tops many people’s bucket lists. You’ll see so many famous landmarks here: the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame cathedral—the list is never-ending.”
Cape Town, South Africa: “Cape Town is a dream location to visit: endless natural beauty and clifftop views, pastel pink neighborhoods and turquoise waters.”
Dubai, UAE: “The high-flying city of the UAE, Dubai is one of the most glamorous destinations you’ll ever visit, and is particularly popular with Big 7 Travel readers.”
Bora Bora, French Polynesia: “Bora Bora is Tahiti’s most famous island. How do overwater bungalows and underwater adventures sound to you? To us, it’s everything we could want from a bucket list destination.”
New York, USA: “New York is one of America’s most exciting states. With charming upstate scenery, world-class cuisine and culture and more things to do than you could fit in one lifetime. The city’s five boroughs all have special features; it’s almost impossible to narrow it down”
Rome, Italy: “Whether it’s your first time in Rome or your 50th, the best thing about this city is that you’ll always discover something new each time you stroll the scenic streets.”
Tokyo, Japan: “Visiting Tokyo is like visiting the future—flashing neon lights, incredible technology—yet there’s still a rich sense of culture and history.”
Antarctica: “Earth’s southernmost continent, Antarctica is a once-in-a-lifetime destination. Nowhere else can compare with the extreme remoteness of this snowy place. It’s not an easy trip to make, but you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views of the white wilderness, icy sea kayaking and whale sightings.”
Vancouver, Canada: “Vancouver is surrounded by water yet close to the mountains and has world-class art, restaurants and heaps of other attractions to keep you entertained.”
London, England: “Pretty pink restaurants, futuristic space-age toilets and jungle skyline views are just some of our favourite things about London. And of course, all the classics: Big Ben, red phone boxes and world-class museums and galleries.”
Los Angeles, USA: “In a city with year-round sunshine, glam bars, beaches and hikes, there are endless incredible experiences to enjoy in Los Angeles. It’s no wonder there are almost 5O million ‘LA’ hashtags on Insta.”
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: “Rio de Janeiro has always been one of the most iconic cities in the world with instantly recognizable landscapes and landmarks.”
Barbados: “Barbados is one of those magical holiday destinations that everybody dreams about visiting. Who wouldn’t put this on their bucket list? Nestled in the south of the Caribbean, it offers stunning beauty and wonderful local culture and is the perfect place to unwind.”
Cinque Terre, Italy: “Is there anything prettier than this area of centuries-old seaside villages on the rugged Italian Riviera coastline? The five towns (Manarola, Riomaggiore, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare) are made for bucket lists.”
Hanoi, Vietnam: “Hanoi—the capital of Vietnam—is known for its rich history, busy street life and centuries of French, Asian and Chinese influences all blended into one bustling city. It’s a wonderful base from which to explore the North of Vietnam, including Halong Bay and Sapa, while also enjoying the comforts of a modern vibrant city.”
