World Travel: Top 5 Big Cities to See at Least Once in a Lifetime


There are so many incredible destinations to visit around the world and it seems my bucket list is always being added to. I dream of going abroad, and among the many present on my bucket list, there are a few that really stand out.

Here are the 5 top places that I want to go to and that are to be seen at least once in a lifetime:

  1. Dubai

Dubai is a unique city in the Middle East, home to the desert, coastline, city life, and sunshine. It is a luxurious city that combines the “old” and the “new”, and there is plenty to do for everyone. You can also get a feel for the traditional Arabic culture here. A big part of Dubai’s appeal is the technological progress and incredible architecture. An example of this is the Dynamic Tower of Dubai, an 80-floor moving skyscraper designed by architect David Fisher and set to be inaugurated next year.

  1. Rome

There is nowhere else like Rome. From the coined phrases of ‘When in Rome’ and ‘..do as the Romans do’, we can see that this city carries a lot character and certain charm. The city is an outdoor museum, and to walk the cobblestone streets, see the historic sites, and be around the friendly and lively culture is a magical experience. The Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Roman Forum, Piazza Navona and so many more historic sites that are must-sees. But to take a stroll along Via dei Fiori Imperiali just before sunset and stop for an apertitvo or espresso as you go, with a view of your choice, is an experience and memory you’ll carry with you forever.

  1. Paris

Paris, known as the City of Love, is certainly a must-see whether you visit with a loved one, solo, or with friends. The history is capturing, it is gorgeous year-round, it is a foodie’s paradise, there is an abundance of landmarks, and the fashion is inspiring.

  1. London

London is an incredible city, famous for its art, architecture, history, and food. You can have one-of-a-kind experiences here, such as watching Shakespeare at the Globe, visiting Buckingham Palace, spending time at the British Museum, passing an afternoon at a traditional local pub, going for High Tea, going to Wimbledon, and more. There is also a variety of restaurants that you can choose from in London, representing nationalities and cultures from all across the world. 

  1. Sydney

Sydney is the must-see spot in Australia. You can explore the city here, quickly get to the incredible beaches close by, experience the incredible food, and the people are so friendly here. One of the best parts about Sydney is that you can quickly be in a completely different setting in just a matter of minutes, and the diversity here only adds to that.

Getting the list down to 5 was very hard as there are so many beautiful cities to see in the world. But for now, these 5 big cities are ones you should certainly see at least once in a lifetime.
