20 Places To See Abroad Before You Die

While I don’t have a bucket list (I actually really dislike the term and idea of it), I still have a mental list of certain countries and sites that I’d love to see and explore some day.

If I had to make a short list of top places I’d recommend to visit that I’ve already been to, it would look something like this:

  • Explore the mystery of Easter Island
  • Visit Machu Picchu
  • Go on a mountain gorilla trek in Africa
  • Travel around Japan by train
  • Spend a few days at Petra
  • Take a hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia
  • Hiking in Patagonia

Fodor’s came up with a slideshow featuring 20 Places To See Abroad Before You Die.

I was curious to see which places made the cut and also find out how many I’ve been to.

Here is the list:

  1. Rio De Janeiro
  2. Machu Picchu
  3. Galapagos Islands
  4. Torres Del Paine National Park
  5. Iceland
  6. Paris
  7. Rome
  8. Marrakesh
  9. Serengeti National Park
  10. Victoria Falls
  11. Giza
  12. Jerusalem
  13. Petra
  14. Istanbul
  15. Taj Mahal
  16. Everest Base Camp
  17. Bhutan
  18. Great Wall of China
  19. The Great Barrier Reef
  20. Antarctica

After looking over Fodor’s list, I thought they made some great choices. I’ve been to 10 of the 20 places mentioned and have wanted to (and have considered going to) the others at one time or another.

Do you have a list of top places that you would love to visit? If so, let us know what your top choice is.

One thought on “20 Places To See Abroad Before You Die

  1. A rather odd list and does not include USA – I gather that was intentional otherwise it is hard to see why SF, Yosemite and other places did not make the cut. Some of these are kind of absurd – Antartica and Everest are not too accessible with Galapagos not far behind. Includes Rio but not Greek Islands? Iceland but not Venice or Athens? Seems like somebody going out of their way to pick more remote exotic places rather than ones with historical significance.
