Dreaming of your post-lockdown holiday? All this extra time at home following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic has given us the opportunity to plan our future travels.
Instead of a traditional beach holiday (no flop and drop needed this year!), visit one of the world’s most iconic landmarks. From India’s Taj Mahal, Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia or Angkor Wat in Cambodia, we’ve rounded up some exciting destinations everyone should aim to visit once in their lifetime.
1. Eiffel Tower – Paris, France
Considered one of the most romantic cities on Earth, there is an abundance of reasons to visit Paris, but the Eiffel Tower has to be one of the top attractions. At 324 m tall, it towers over the city and can be seen from miles away. Whether you capture a picture of the tower itself, see the incredible glass floor of the 1st floor, or take the time to climb to the top and see the stunning panoramic views, it is a must-see in Europe.
2. Angkor Wat – Siem Reap, Cambodia
One of the top landmarks everyone should visit is the masterpiece of Angkor Wat. The majestic structure is Cambodia’s most beloved and best-preserved temple. The 500-acre site is one of the largest religious monuments in the world and represents the architectural pinnacle of the Khmer Empire. It has remained a place of worship since its founding in the 12th century.
3. Sydney Harbour Bridge – Sydney, Australia
