13 Places You Should Visit in Your Lifetime!

*In no particular order.

1) Paris, France
Known as the most romantic city in the world, but if you're not in love, never fear, it's not like paper hearts fall from the sky and you have to stroll two by two down what they call 'la rue'. There is so much to see, so much money to spend and so much weight to gain from the delicious pain au chocolat and croissants that you'll soon be wanting to wear a striped top, capri-tan trousers and a beret whilst smoking a pipe and walking by the Sienne. 

2) Las Vegas, Nevada
Who hasn't wanted to live the Vegas dream. Martini's, suits and an endless flow of chips. Have you seen Swingers? There is more to Vegas than gambling if you're not into that scene, however. You have the drunk marriages, Cher impersonators, wacky hotels and crazy food! It's endless glamour! Everyone has to go to Las Vegas once in their life! Just wait til I'm 21!

3) Egypt
If you're fascinated by Ancient History, and who isn't, this will be a historical heaven. Seeing the Pyramids and the Sphinx will mark down one out of 7 for the Seven Wonders of the World. Such History, culture and artifacts in scorching heat makes Egypt one of the most interesting countries in the world and a must-see before you die.

4) Italy
There's no way you can tell someone to only visit one city in Italy. There's Rome, Florence, Venice, Naples, Milan, Verona etc. Each city gives you something different so if you're going to Italy, I suggest you go all over the country, however if only one is available to you, the most popular tends to be Rome as it is the capital. Full of history and architecture, you can't go wrong!

5) London, United Kingdom
Blimey governor, can I have some 'ore? Indeed the home of Oliver Twist, the red double decker bus and the cockeny accent, London maintains a very 'British' atmosphere. Perfect for a short holiday as all the tourist spots are all sectioned together so there's no much need to explore. When I went, I got through all the major attractions in one day and spent the next day shopping and hitting the museums. Not an ancient historical location but nevertheless fascinating and beautiful to visit!

6) Berlin, Germany
A fascinating history and culture, Germany's capital, Berlin, maintains attractions such as Berlin Philharmonic, museums and The Holocaust Memorial bringing endless sight seeing! A captivating past and a beautiful language makes Berlin a must go!

7) Vancouver, Canada
Canada, America's sister, holds some of the worlds most beautiful views. Vancouver, a city where the ocean meets the mountains, is perfect for those who want to experience a laid back yet enchanting holiday. To miss such beauty in your lifetime would be a regret you carry to your grave (not to be morbid or anything).

8) Tokyo, Japan
Who wouldn't want to visit Japan. To us British, it's a completely different world! The home of what seems like such a complex yet beautiful language, fascinating people and anime, Tokyo is the heart and capital of Japan and contains everything you would want. Not only will the museums captivate a foreigner, but also the daily life of a Japan.

9) India
If you're going to visit India, you must visit Arga, Shimla, Goa and Mumbai. On this journey you'll come across unmissable attractions such as the iconic Taj Mahal, a taste of the Himalayas and stunning beaches. Moreover, in Mumbai, you'll experience India the way it should be experienced with an infinite list of activities and opportunities in the home of Indian cinema.

10) New York, USA
New York, New York, there's a reason Frank Sinatra sang about one of the most iconic cities in the world. A city known for Broadway, yellow taxi cabs, skyscrapers and making dreams come true, not experiencing new york, Cyndi Lauper would shake her head in disappointment and shame. Truly the melting pot of America, if you never experience the phrase 'If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere' the way it should be said, you, my friend, have not lived.

11) Beijing, China
Home of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games brings Beijing's rich heritage and culture a must see for everyone. Experience iconic attractions such as the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, The Temple of Heaven and much more whilst you lose yourself in an experience that comes once in a lifetime. 

12) Jerusalem, Israel
The capital of Isreal and one of the oldest cities in the world makes Jerusalem an unmissable destination. Heart of some of the worlds religion and politics and containing some of the worlds most beautiful holy architecture, you have to see it to believe it!

13) Athens, Greece
Endless History in one of the worlds oldest cities, again, Athens holds such beauty with architecture and culture that missing such an opportunity to transport back into ancient History holds such regret and loss that you won't realise could have been possible until you experience Athens.
