There are some fantastic places in the world that you must have on your travel bucket list.

These landmarks are not only famous for their history and architecture but also for their natural beauty.

Not all these landmarks are easy to reach, but if you want to see them, there is nothing beyond your imagination.

Here are the listed ten landmarks that are on my travel bucket list.

The Stonehenge, UK

Historic Stonehenge shall be in the top of your travel bucket list

Stonehenge is an ancient stone circle in Wiltshire, England. It is about 2 miles (3 km) north of Amesbury and 8 miles (13 km) north of Salisbury.

The attraction comprises 30 uprights (sarsens, each over 20 feet high and weighing 25 tons), linked by lintels to form a continuous ring, with a gap of about 12 ft between the rings.

Outside this circle are 56 nearly complete rings of stones, including “trilithons” (two upright stones supporting a third).

The tallest sarsen stands 17 feet high and weighs around 25 tons, and the monument was erected as a religious site around 3000 BC—2000 BC during the Neolithic period.

Since the 19th century, many alternative theories have been proposed to explain how it was constructed: that aliens or druids built it for ritual purposes, etc …

My next most loved place is Niagara Falls. 

Niagara Falls, Niagara

Niagara Falls is a natural wonder in Canada, located on the Niagara River.

The waterfall comprises three waterfalls: American Falls, the largest; Horseshoe Falls, the widest; and Canadian Falls, the tallest. This fantastic attraction is located on the border between Ontario and New York state and is accessed via roadways that follow along their banks.

When planning your trip to Niagara Falls, try to go in the spring or fall to enjoy cool weather and the views of one of nature’s most spectacular displays!

The Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China is the most extended structure on Earth. This is also one of the best-known Chinese landmarks.

It extends about 4,500 miles (7,300 kilometres) from Shanhaiguan in eastern Hebei Province to Lop Nur in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

This great wall was built over two thousand years ago to protect China from invasion by nomadic groups from Mongolia and Siberia.

In addition, it also served as a customs barrier between ancient states in northern China (the Warring States Period).

It later served as an impenetrable border when imperial China was unified under the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC).

The Eiffel Tower, Paris

Iconic Effiel tower is a must have item in your travel bucket list
The Eiffel Tower is the most-visited paid monument globally, welcoming over 7 million visitors annually.

It was named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.

The tower was built in 1889 and stood 324 meters tall on top of a hill at Champ de Mars in Paris.

The tower has six levels, with elevators that take visitors to different observation platforms. Also, you can take the stairs up and be greeted by a spectacular view of Paris!

At nightfall, it’s illuminated by over 5000 lights, making it visible from as far as 70 kilometres away from Montmartre Hill overlooking Paris.

Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany

Neuschwanstein Castle, also known as the “Disney Castle”. It is a 19th-century castle in Bavaria, Germany.

King Ludwig II of Bavaria built it as a retreat and homage to Richard Wagner. In addition, the castle was inspired by the legends of King Arthur.

Neuschwanstein is one of the most visited castles in Europe. It has been featured in many movies (including Disney’s Sleeping Beauty). It’s easy to see why people flock here: its beauty makes it feel like something from a fairy tale!

Machu Picchu, Peru

Machu Picchu is an Incan citadel that the Inca emperor Pachacuti set high in the Andes Mountains.

He built it as his royal estate between 1438 and 1471 when Inca culture peaked during Pachacuti’s reign.

It is one of South America’s most important archaeological sites. Unfortunately, Spanish invaders, after they conquered Peru in 1533, lost the site to them. American historian Hiram Bingham rediscovered it in 1911 and brought it to worldwide attention.

Chichen Itza, Mexico

Chichen Itza is located in the northern centre of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, and “Chichen Itza” means “At the mouth of water.”

Regarding square kilometres, Chichen Itza is the second largest archaeological site in the world after Teotihuacan.

The structure, known today as El Castillo (“the castle”), or Kukulcan Pyramid, is considered one of the most notable buildings at Chichen Itza.

El Caracol (“the snail”) and La Iglesia were two buildings used for astronomical purposes. These include observing equinoxes and solstices and predicting eclipses and other celestial events.

Petra, Jordan

Is Petra the most famous and influential archaeological site in Jordan? Yes, it is.

It’s a city carved out of rock, exactly as cool as it sounds.

Petra was built in the first century BC by the Nabataeans. They were a powerful civilization controlling much of what we now know as Jordan, including their capital city, Petra.

The Nabataeans carved out this stunning city using only rudimentary tools (like picks and shovels). So, imagine how hard it must have been for them to carve something so intricate out of solid rock!

You can arrive at Petra through its narrow entranceway, which people call Siq (pronounced “seek”). Views that leave otherworldly impressions on your mind—and your camera lens will greet you!

The Taj Mahal, India

Taj Mahal must include in your asian travel bucket list

The Mughal emperor Shah Jahan commissioned the construction of the Taj Mahal, an ivory-white marble tomb, on the right bank of the Yamuna River in Agra, India.

The monument is widely considered one of the most beautiful buildings in the world and one of the Seven Wonders. Taj Mahal attracts 7-8 million visitors a year, making it one of the most visited monuments in India. Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan built it between 1632 and 1654 to memorialise his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. What are you waiting for if you have not seen the Taj Mahal yet?

This is one of those places that will leave you speechless. Even if it’s a bit far from where you are staying and the weather is terrible, don’t miss out on this experience.

Angkor Wat, Cambodia

The Khmer king Suryavarman II built our final travel bucket list item, Angkor Wat, a Siem Reap, Cambodia temple complex, between the 12th and 13th centuries.

He constructed this temple complex to serve as his state temple and his capital city. Additionally, he dedicated the temple to Vishnu, specifically in his form as Krishna.

Angkor Wat is the world’s largest religious monument and one of Cambodia’s most famous tourist destinations.

The site’s total area measures 162.6 hectares (1,626,000 m2; 402 acres). It also consists of numerous satellite temples linked by roads and canals.

The Bottom Line

There are so many beautiful places worldwide. Pick a few and add them to your travel bucket list.

But I hope this list will inspire you to plan your next trip immediately!
