La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona
La Sagrada Familia is one of the world’s most famous cathedrals, and even if you’re not religious, the sight of this building is worth seeing regardless. This mammoth piece of architecture was designed by Antoni Gaudi who’s work has been commissioned all over Barcelona and are some of the most visited sites when it comes to the tourists. La Sagrada Familia stands at 300ft tall and 200ft wide. Construction on the cathedral took place in the late 1870s and is due for completion in 2026. So it’s certainly worth seeing both before and after it's updated. You should also be sure to take a look at Gaudi’s other works while in the city.
Visiting the capital of the UK is a must for those who enjoy exploring the history of a city but mixed in with the modern day hustle and bustle you can expect to experience in London. The Tower Of London is one of those historic places that has watched this capital turn into the biggest city in western Europe. This 1,000-year-old fortress has served as a royal palace, a prison and an execution chamber. It’s housed 24,000 gems that make up the Crown Jewels and is worthy of your time.

Rome is a city that is dripping in history. There are so many monuments and historic sites and buildings that you need a week or two to get through them all at a leisurely pace. The Colosseum is one of the most famous ones that even after 2,000 years, it’s still going strong. This venue is an amphitheatre in which many gladiatorial shows would take place. You can only imagine what it must have been like back then, enjoying a spectacle like this in a truly spectacular venue. Even though some parts of it have withered away, the structure of the building is still very detailed.
It’s hard to believe that these warrior statues were only discovered back in 1974, by local farmers. These life-size versions of Emperor Qin Shihuang’s army is a truly phenomenal sight to take in. More than 2,000 restored chariots, horses and warriors now stand proudly on display for all the world to see. It’s the greatest archaeological find of the 20th century, and it’s a humbling thought that even though we have populated a lot of the world, there are still some areas that we have yet to discover.
Terra Cotta Warriors, Xian, China
Times Square, New York
Although perhaps a little commercial, Times Square for even a local to the city is always a sight to behold. With skyscrapers emblazoned with large digital screens, Times Square is both a tourist hot spot and advertising dream. Its atmosphere is constantly electric with buskers galore. It’s also the spot where the city rings in the New Year, so if you find yourself here during that time, you may want to celebrate the occasion in Times Square.
Marrakesh is one of those places that you’ll either love to spend a week in or could only survive for a day. It’s a busy hub full of markets and souks selling handmade wares to locals and tourists alike. One spot, in particular, that should be seen is Jemaa el-Fna, bustling with stalls, snake charmers and horse-drawn carriages. Don’t be afraid to immerse yourself into the madness that is this square but also take a moment to sit in one of the many cafes that overlooks it.

Great Wall of China, China
If you enjoy walking, then a 13,000-mile walk sounds good, right? Well to be exact, 13,170 miles. This is an iconic spot that’s recognised across the globe as being one of the greatest man-made structures throughout all time. You can walk parts of the wall for a number of days, so depending on how committed you are to a trek, there are options to choose from. It is indeed the longest wall in the world, and it took 200 years to complete it. Now that’s a construction project!
The Great Barrier Reef is certainly one for those who enjoy diving and exploring the sights underwater. It’s the largest living thing on earth and consists of thousands of reefs, countless species of fish, not to mention the colourful coral that is just sitting below the surface of the Australian water.

Taj Mahal, Agra, India
The Taj Mahal is basically a giant gift Shah Jahan’s late wife Mumtaz Mahal who died giving birth to their 14th child. Not everyone would get such a huge memorial structure like the Taj Mahal, but it’s a beautiful way of paying tribute to a wife he so dearly adored and loved. Nowadays, it’s another famous spot to capture that all-important selfie or holiday photo. The Taj Mahal is open for the public to enjoy too!
