Canadians may think that a Canadian travel guide will only look into the major places and events around the world. This will not necessarily be the case. Sometimes a Canadian travel guide will provide some ideas for unique vacation experiences. Those looking for some interesting places to visit should pay attention to this list that lists 10 travel destinations that should be on any avid traveler's bucket list.
A trip to the island continent of Australia can provide some impressive opportunities to view unique attractions. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest of its kind in the world and is home to a wide variety of sea creatures. Those traveling to the Outback can see one of the more remote regions on earth.
Many people think of a giant Spring Break Party when they think of Cancun. However, this is not all that this coastal oasis has to offer. Many resorts can book day trips to see some of the most impressive examples of Mayan architecture that amateur archaeologists are bound to love.
3. Mount Kilimanjaro
Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa. Even though it sits near the equator, the mountain is snow-covered. The snow is melting rapidly, so those wanting a glimpse will need to hurry. Amboseli National Park in Kenya and the Serengeti in Tanzania are nearby for those wanting a safari adventure.
Nepal is home to some of the tallest mountains in the world. The Himalayas tower over much of this small nation, and the capital of Kathmandu provides an entry for those staging to climb some of the tallest peaks, including Mount Everest.
The Egyptian capital of Cairo is the perfect location for those interested in Egyptology. The Cairo Museum houses some of the leading artifacts from ancient Egypt, and the pyramids and Sphinx at Giza are only a short drive away.
The town of Churchill sits at the northern reaches of the Canadian province of Manitoba and is not accessible by car. Churchill is the leading site for the viewing of polar bears in the world, so the adventurous will like both its wildlife and its remote location.
London is one of the leading metropolises on earth. The English capital is home to many museums, the most famous of which is the British Museum. Those with an interest in just about any era of classical civilization will find something of interest in the British Museum. One of the best things about the British Museum is the cost. Donations are requested, but not required.
No one really knows the purpose of Stonehenge, but its strange arrangement of large rocks has drawn visitors from all over the world.
9. The Great Wall of China
The Great Wall was supposed to have a defensive purpose originally, but now it is one of the world's most famous landmarks. Richard Nixon's trip to the Great Wall was part of one of the greatest photo ops in history. No trip to China would be complete without a trip to the Great Wall.
The Czech capital was one of the few major cities in Central Europe to avoid bombs in World War II. Thus, the classic architecture is still in place. The Prague Castle and many Gothic churches grace the city's skyline.
These are only 10 destinations for a traveler's bucket list. Of course, the world is full of fascinating places that would fit on such a list. Much depends upon personal preference.
