15 places that should be on your bucket list
Here are 15 incredible destinations from around the world that you need to add to your travel bucket list.
1. Moraine Lake, Banff National Park, Canada
Situated in the beautiful Valley of the Ten Peaks in Banff National Park, Glacier-fed Moraine Lake is prettier than a postcard. From the sweeping landscapes to the rare wild life and famous selection of restaurants, you won’t be sorry you added this to your travel itinerary.
2. Lake Tekapo, New Zealand
Three hours drive from Christchurch, Lake Tekapo boasts an intense milky-turquoise colour from the glaciers, and even when the sun goes down it will woo you with incredible stargazing at night. Top tip: be sure to visit the Tekapo Springs. Their new Tekapo Star Gazing experience will let you combine both the stars and a glorious soak in the hot baths.
3. Havana, Cuba
This historic seaport has lots to offer with eye-catching spanish architecture, flavours from around the world, and scenery described as a mix of opulence and decay. Top tip: make sure you indulge in a Cuban sandwich (just like in the movie Chef)!
4. Valle Verzasca, Switzerland
Fresh air, top views, great hiking. Introducing Valle Verzasca, Switzerland.
5. Hvar, Croatia
Party with the rich and famous in Hvar, Croatia. Top tip: an espresso martini at one of the many rooftop bars is a must.
6. Yosemite National Park, USA
Situated in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains, Yosemite National park is a once in a lifetime experience. The iconic towering Bridalvil Fall and granite cliffs are unlike anything else, you’ll definitely be pinching yourself.

One of the most popular places to visit in the world, Machu Picchu in Peru was amazingly only discovered in 1911. If you’re the exploring or history type, this is definitely one for the list.
