Now that more and more people are getting vaccinated, it’s understandable if you’re itching to pack your bags, spread your wings, and enjoy a change of scenery from the spaces you’ve likely spent much of the past year and change. If you’re in need of some itinerary inspiration, one travel company has got you covered.

Unforgettable Travel used global search data to compile a list of the top travel bucket list experiences people have been looking for lately, and the results span from the world’s tallest tower to some of the most famous tourist attractions right here in the U.S.

The total list compiled by the luxury travel company includes the 50 most searched for bucket list travel experiences, breaking the results down by continent and featuring a global top 10. The results are as diverse as the locales they represent, which shows that if given the ability, travelers would enjoy music and clubbing in Ibiza almost as much as settling into their seats on the luxe Orient Express.

The Top 10 ‘Most Searched For’ Travel Bucket List Experiences

1. Visit the tallest tower in the world, the Burj Khalifa, in Dubai

2. Sail around New York’s green lady, the Statue of Liberty

3. Trek to Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal

4. Cruise down Egypt’s famous river, the Nile

5. Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris

6. Experience the madness of the Las Vegas Strip

7. Cross the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco

8. Enjoy beautiful views of New York from the top of the Empire State Building

9. Admire art at the Louvre Museum in Paris

10. Experience the wonder of Rome’s Colosseum

The company calls out some stats that seem particularly inspired by over a year spent cooped up inside, including the fact that six awe-inspiring (and intense) outdoor hikes made the top 50 list: Everest Base Camp in Nepal, Machu Picchu, Mount Kilimanjaro, Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon, Trolltunga in Norway, and Table Mountain in South Africa.

Locations in Europe are certainly popular, making for 19 out of the top 50 spots, with plenty of art museums, historical monuments, and famous party destinations making the ranks.

If the list has you inspired, just be sure to check local COVID-19 travel rules and guidelines no matter where your final destination may be — otherwise, the sky’s the limit.
