The world’s top 25 must-see places list revealed



NEW YORK – Like to travel the world’s top 25 places? If yes then Discovery Channel unveils your dream list.

From watching the Aurora Borealis in Norway, to a boat trip round the Galapagos Islands, the list was created by adventurer Bear Grylls and voted on by 2,000 Brits.

The Wonder List results – which include taking a helicopter tour of Niagara Falls, and riding the Trans-Siberian Railway across Russia – have been released to mark the 25th anniversary of the Discovery Channel.

Claiming the number one spot is a visit to the North Cape to see the stunning light display, the Northern Lights – which 45 per cent of respondents said is their dream trip.

It was closely followed by snorkelling Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, and driving along America’s Route 66.

Making up the top five are trip to the Grand Canyon in Nevada, and taking a gondola ride along the Grand Canal in Venice.
