Let’s grab a sheet of paper and a pen and create that bucket list we’ve been meaning to create all our life.

Item #1: Create a bucket list.

Item #2: Travel the world.

It can’t get easier than this. While the entire world is a beautiful place, with so many beautiful countries, cultures and people to see, we also know that most of us will probably never see everything that the world has to offer us. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We have compiled a list of 10 most amazing places that need to be on your itinerary.

So pack your bags and experience some of the most incredible views, cultures and stories in the world.

1. The Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest collection of coral reefs in the world, spanning over 2,500 kilometres. It’s so large that it can be seen from space, though it’s best appreciated in person off the Queensland coast. It is the place to go diving, and houses whopping 1,500 fish species, 30 species of whales and dolphins, six species of sea turtles and more than 215 species of birds.

Bora Bora features the exotic locales, dripping with luxury and dotted with glass-bottomed bungalows that boast endless vistas of aquamarine sea, jagged volcanic peaks and beautiful greenery you’d hope to find in the tropics–only it’s more fantastic than you can imagine.

4. Machu Picchu, Peru

Machu Picchu is an ancient Inca site that dates back to the 15th century and sits atop a mountain above the Sacred Valley. The hike up to these pre-Columbian ruins (which lie at 2,430 meters, or nearly 8,000 feet above sea) is, quite literally, breathtaking. And what you’ll see from the top is a serene spot that’s frequently shrouded in an ethereal fog and perpetually blanketed in emerald green grass.
