What’s on your bucket list? We’re guessing it’s something like: zip line through the jungle, surf in Australia and see the Northern Lights.
But when you’re in a country for only a few days, it can be tricky to work out what you want to do. That’s where this map comes in.
The map shows the most popular attraction for every country in the world, rated according to the ‘things to do‘ TripAdviser tool.
Created by VoucherCloud, the destinations shown might not be the ones you expect – there’s no Buckingham Palace in the UK, for example – but they are the ones that TripAdviser reviewers believe gave them the most consistently good experience.
Natural wonders are the most popular pick, with 76 of them shown on the maps. There are 54 historic attractions, 38 traditionally touristy attractions and 29 attractions concerned with religion.
Western Europe seems to be tourism focused, while Eastern Europe is favoured for its historical sites.
On the other side of the pond, the Americas and their attractions are predominantly natural, as is much of the Caribbean (well, think of those beautiful beaches…).

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
