Top destinations totally worth adding to your travel bucket list

Traveling the world is a dream for many of us, but realistically you need to narrow it down slightly. Here’s where the bucket list comes in: an essential list of destinations.

But where exactly do people around the globe aspire to visit most?

Following on from sample survey results of our 1.5million social audience, we found out which destinations across the world feature most on people’s bucket lists.

Unsurprisingly, countries with naturally beautiful scenery or world-famous landmarks came out on top. 22% of the top bucket list destinations have white sandy beaches, while 52% is an iconic city. The average number of destinations on a bucket list is 11, with people hoping to visit at least seven of those places during the lifetime.

People were also more likely to add a destination to their list if they had seen it on social media – our study found that 33% of people research holiday destinations via their Instagram feed. 

From tropical islands to sprawling urban cities, consider this your must-visit list…

However, there’s nothing to stop you when you’re a traveler! In metropolitan Sydney, marvel at the iconic opera house.
