What’s on your bucket list?

We’re guessing you want to see the Northern Lights, eat sushi in Japan and ride a camel through the desert. Extremely worthy ideas. But aren’t they just a bit, you know… conventional?

What if we told you that there was a map tailor-made to help you create, curate and fulfill the ultimate bucket list of extraordinary sights.

An extraordinary map

Atlas Obscura has got just that – a map with an amazing 13,122 certified extraordinary places that you’re guaranteed to want to visit.

They’ve curated the recommendations from The Atlas, a page on their website that reviews locations and destinations and deems which are worth a visit.

North America

To celebrate reaching more than 10,000 recommendations, Atlas Obscura created this map, which shows each location and a description explaining why you should visit.

From tombs to museums to natural wonders, whatever you’re interested in, it’s here.

Want to see the bright lights of London in a way not many have before? Head to God’s Own Junkyard, a haven of neon signs in Walthamstow once featured in Vogue.

New Zealand

Or if you’re in Thailand and bored of the typical backpacker trail, head to Wat Pa Thewapithak, a hellish amusement park filled with scary statues and models warning you of the terrifying depths of Buddhist Hell.

In New Zealand, you’ve got to make sure you visit Milford Sound, where you can see dolphins, waterfalls, seals and penguins.
