Angkor Wat, Cambodia
The stunning Angkor Wat temple complex is one of Cambodia’s top attractions and is also among some of best traveling places in Asia. The site was built by King Suryavarman II, who ruled from 1113 to 1152 AD. A lot of people say it looks like a sandstone version of Beijing’s Forbidden City.
Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
This is one of my favourite places on earth. The volcanic archipelago off Ecuador’s Pacific coast is home to a mind-boggling array of wildlife, from marine iguanas and flightless cormorants to blue-footed boobies and sea lions. If you come here with a naturalist guide, they can help point out species like penguins and giant tortoises. In fact, Charles Darwin first theorized his theory of evolution after spending time here.
Machu Picchu, Peru
Situated at 2,430 meters (7,970 feet) above sea level, Machu Picchu is an Incan citadel built high in a mountain range. Many historians believe that Machu Picchu was once a place of worship for an Incan deity or a sacred location for ceremonies and rituals. While its purpose remains mysterious, one thing’s certain: This beautiful structure attracts more than 400,000 visitors per year and is considered one of history’s best tourist attractions.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
Located about 2,000 miles from Tahiti, Bora Bora is a well-known tropical vacation destination for honeymooners and luxury travelers. The island was formed from volcanoes and its beautiful turquoise lagoon has long been a draw for snorkelers and divers. While there are few major sites to see on land, visitors can take advantage of several water activities that include glass-bottom boat tours and swims with dolphins.
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Most travelers to Thailand know about Bangkok, which is not surprising given it’s one of Asia’s most visited cities. But if you have time for only one Thai destination, make it Chiang Mai. The old capital of northern Thailand is home to some of Thailand’s best food, shopping and natural sights such as Doi Suthep temple, an ancient 14th-century Buddhist monument and mountain.
Sydney has long been considered one of Australia’s premier tourist destinations, but it didn’t become an international phenomenon until 2015. That year, Sydney was named by Lonely Planet as its top-ranked city to visit on Earth. This is due, in large part, to its eye-catching natural scenery and world-class cultural attractions—which includes everything from whitewater rafting trips along its famous beaches to scenic drives through its towering mountains.
