Our earth is home to an innumerable amount of amazing sites. Whether you love nature in all of its raw beauty or are fascinated by incredible man-made structures, these sites are just some of the ones that any travel enthusiast needs to add to their list.
Machu Picchu is the first site to add to your bucket list. Located in the Andes in Peru, the site is believed to be a sacred retreat for Incan rulers. Built in the 15th Century, the intricate stonework has stood the test of time and continues to captivate millions of tourists. If you are a keen hiker, the Incan Trail from Cusco will lead you to Machu Picchu.
The Grand Canyon is a natural site that is absolutely breathtaking. Located in Arizona in the United States, the formation is a result of over 2 billion years of natural erosion. The Colorado River created the intricate shapes and continues to erode the structure to this day. The cavernous valleys will leave you in awe and are an absolute must-see for any lover of the wonders of the natural world.
Angkor Wat in Cambodia is the world’s biggest religious site and is a deeply moving place to visit. Located just outside of the city of Siem Reap, the site was originally a Hindu temple, but has since been converted to a Buddhist temple. With other ruin sites surrounding the area, this is a fantastic expedition for anyone fascinated with the religious structures of the world.
Our final recommendation is the Great Pyramid of Giza. The oldest and largest of the pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex, the magnitude of this stunning structure is almost impossible to comprehend. Taking approximately 30 years to build and constructed as a tomb for the Fourth Dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, the Pyramid is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and rounds out our must-see list perfectly.
