One of the first things to do when visiting a new destination is to stop and see its famous attractions – tourist attractions. It’s the best way to learn about history and discover ancient places.

Regardless of where you decide to travel to, there is almost always a tourist attraction for you to explore. If you are going to China, you can’t leave without visiting the Great Wall; if you’re in Seattle, you must visit their famous Space Needle – one of the best observation points in the world. Traveling to New York City? Your visit isn’t complete without a trip to the Statue of Liberty.

There is a reason why millions of people have been drawn to these significant attractions - they offer the opportunity to learn about a different culture and explore churches, landmarks, museums and natural landscapes.

Although not all tourist attractions live up to the hype – the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy or Madame Tussauds in London – the places on this list do.
