It is not an easy hobby to keep up with but the wise always say nothing good comes easy. Traveling around the world, I have comes across wonderful sites and destinations. In this article, I have compiled a list of the 7 most iconic destinations across the globe that should be a part of your bucket list.

Those who have visited the Niagara Falls will forget about them as soon as they set eyes on the breathtaking Victoria Falls. Often referred to as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls leave every visitor mesmerized and witnessing them should be on the bucket list of every passionate traveler out there.
2. The Pyramids, Egypt
Pyramids are a major reason why Egypt hosts so many tourists from around the world. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and probably the most fascinating one among the three Pyramids as it has been preserved in its best form. The Pyramids continue to be a source of fascination and wonder to everyone, especially those who enjoy history. This destination is also considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
3. The Dead Sea, Jordan
Floating in the Dead Sea is an experience of a lifetime and exploring the historical ruins in its surroundings add to the fun and adventure.
4. The Blue Mosque, Turkey
If there is one mosque that you should definitely try to see in your traveling adventures, it is The Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Turkey. The religious site boasts stunning architecture, intricate design and serene atmosphere, which makes it hugely popular among tourists.
5.The Colosseum, Italy
The colosseum is one of the greatest remains left behind by the powerful and mighty Romans. It is an Amphitheatre where spectators gathered to watch battles and other games back in the Roman times. I had the good fortune of visiting Italy last year even though it is one of the most expensive European countries. I was able to buy miles online and bag a good ticket deal in the low season. This worked out really well for me as tourist destinations like The Colosseum were less crowded and more easily accessible. If you buy miles online or earn enough over time, you too can manage to visit the iconic Colosseum.
6. Times Square, USA
Featured in numerous movies, shows, magazines and books, Time Square is a magnet for tourists. Its hustle bustle and vibrant surroundings are truly contagious. Without doubt, it is the most visited destination in not only USA but the world.
7. Burj Khalifa, Dubai
This skyscraper has the honor of being the tallest structure in the world. It is a source of great attraction and is one of the most visited destinations in UAE.
