Published June 15, 2018

There are certain places around the world that most people would like to visit but a lot of them will never make the trip in their lifetime. More people are choosing to set a specific birthday as their goal for visiting a certain place as it gives them a date to aim for. With that in mind, see the following list for the top five places that you should visit before you are fifty.

The Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is a valley that was formed over 5000 years ago by the Colorado River. The most accessible part of the National Park is the South Rim and this is open all year. From here you will get views of the whole Canyon and the river flowing at the bottom of the valley. The sheer size of the Canyon is breathtaking and the views are something that you will never forget. If you want to get down into the Canyon then the best way to do this is by a helicopter tour. There are several American Indian tribes in the Grand Canyon region.

The Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal topped the list of the New Seven Wonders Of The World and it truly is an impressive building. It attracts up to eight million tourists every year and is something that you must do if you are ever visiting India. It is considered to be one of the best examples of Muslim architecture in the world and also shows the rich heritage of India’s past. The best time to visit is between October and February when the weather is cooler.

Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is the ruins of an Incan citadel that is located in Peru. It can be a long journey to reach Peru but it is a trip that will be well worth it. It is though that the structure was built by the Incas in 1450 but they abandoned it a century alater when the area was invaded by the Spanish. It has only received public attention in the last one hundred years or so when it was introduced to the rest of the world by archaeologist Hiram Bingham.

Paris

If it is a city break that you are looking for then Paris really does have everything. There are so many famous landmarks including the Eiffel Tower, Arc De Triomphe and The Louvre. You will be spoilt for choice in terms of dining options with everything from high end, exclusive restaurants to small bakeries serving mouth-watering bread and pastries. It is also considered one of the most romantic cities in the world and so you should definitely consider travelling there with your partner.

New York

There is so much to do in New York City that one visit is never going to be enough. It really is the city that never sleeps and there is always something going on whether it is day or night. Planning ahead is the key to making sure that you fit everything in and this will help to build the anticipation. If you want to take some time to escape from the busyness of the city then Central Park is the perfect place to find some space away from the crowds.
