With an ambition to travel, all you need is your bucket list. This article will help you to create the best travel bucket you need during your vacation. With these eight amazing places from around the world, you have no reason not to create your travel bucket list.
These are eight of the best places around the world that you should think of visiting while you are still alive and strong.
1. The Grand Canyon, Arizona
The Grand Canyon is an extensive attraction site in Coconino County, Arizona. Reserved as a National Park, the canyon stretches on 277 miles (446 km) of land. When touring the place, ensure that you get the best views, not a mere pass by its side.
For the best view and experience, walk down the canyon to get an "interior" view. A hike through the canyon is so amazing, far much better than taking photos from above. Most people prefer visiting the South Rim, where they get to see the canyon escarpments and the Colorado River water.
2. The Great Wall of China
What is the largest wall you have ever seen? What about the oldest one? There is no need to scramble for answers. During the era of the Qin Dynasty, the present China territory emperor, Qin Shi Huang, decided to join the fortifications to form a protective wall against enemies and invaders from the North.
The great wall construction started about 221 BC. In total, the length of the walls is 13,170 miles (21,196 km). The walls stand on the ridges or peaks of tall mountains. You can take a hike and explore the area and marvel at how people could build such a massive wall when modern building technology did not exist.
3. Redwood National Park, California
We all love vegetation. Watching a natural scene is epic, but marvelous when it goes out of the "ordinary" we know. In California, the United States stands 139,000 acres of land serving as a park. You will find natural forests here with tall trees than you have ever seen.
According to the National Park Service, the tallest tree measure 379 feet. The redwood grows so tall for various reasons. Most of the trees are currently 500 - 700 years old. There are public parks where you can sit and enjoy your afternoon as you watch the trees. You may as well decide to hike to experience life in another dimension.
