How many have you done?

March 23, 2017

What would a map of the world look like if it was created by tourists?

Vouchercloud, a U.K.-based travel deals site, has the answer, and it may or may not surprise you. The site used data from TripAdvisor's "Things to Do" rankings, and pulled the number one attraction for every country in the world. 

Many of the answers are pretty typical when thinking with a tourist's mindset, though they might make locals cringe. Canada gets Niagara Falls, Australia Sydney Harbor, Peru Machu Picchu. Okay.

The winner in the U.S.? New York City's Central Park. (As a New Yorker who lives just a few blocks from Central Park, I can certainly appreciate this pick. But the best place in the entire United States of America? I'm not so sure.)

Plenty of museums make the list — Paris's Musée d'Orsay in France, the Vasa Museum in Sweden, the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico — and so do churches, national parks, and natural wonders.

Whether you agree with the picks or not (spoiler: you probably won't), it's fun to go through and see how many you've visited.
