Places everybody should visit before they die

I've traveled to many countries in my lifetime thus far, and I know that I will be traveling to many more before I die. Here is a list of places that I have been to and places that I long to go to before I die, and that everybody should see if they have the opportunity to do so.

The Grand Canyon

This amazing place is so huge it's almost hard to imagine unless you witness it for yourself. The vastness of the canyon stretches to over 277 miles or 446 km in length! It's as deep as 6,000 feet and shows over 2 billion years of our planets geological history.

The Pyramids of Egypt

The pyramids are something to behold. Nobody's exactly sure on how they were built, when or how long they took. They are simply amazing, the biggest of them the Great Pyramid of Giza, standing at the height of over 480 feet!

The Amazonian Rainforest

This beautiful place is quickly being destroyed, so if you are planning to one day witness all of it's splendor, you might have to expedite your trip. This is one of the few places that still has a huge number of species of plants and animals that haven't even been discovered yet!

The Great Wall of China

This is one of the most amazing things that man has ever made, spanning a massive distance and completely built by hand, it's a site to be seen.

Petra, Jordan

This is an entire ancient city carved into sheer rock and Jordan's greatest tourist attraction. To think that this marvel was created with the simple tools of just a hammer and chisel.

Las Vegas

Vegas Baby! Even though it can come off as a cheesy place to visit, Vegas is really one of a kind, and one of the most dynamic and lively places on the planet. Every time you visit it there's a dozen new things to see, so you could literally come to Vegas 20 times a year and could see and visit different places every visit.

Niagra Falls

Niagra falls is split between both Canada and the US and has a vertical drop of over 165 feet! Also referred to as Horseshoe Falls, it is the most powerful waterfall in North America and has a flow rate of approximately 65,000 cubic feet per second.

The Canadian side is by far the crown jewel of the falls, and has a massively larger tourist industry and many more attractions than the American side.

Machu Picchu

The crown jewel of the Inca empire, Machu Picchu is located in Peru and is over 2400 metres above sea level. It was built in the early 1400s and still stands today, it's one of the most beautiful and peaceful settings in South America.

Santorini, Greece

Located in Greece, this beautiful paradise of an island is known for it's dazzling white houses and amazing beaches and terraces.

Taj Mahal

This massive palace was built back in the 1600's and is just as beautiful and maintained as it was when it was created. Contrary to what it looks like it's a multitude of buildings and not just one large mausoleum.
