#1 Disney Theme Parks

Taking the number one spot (again), it looks like dreams really do come true at Disneyland. There are 11 Disney properties that make up the result, located in Hawaii, California, Florida, France, Hong Kong, China and Japan. Now imagine how many more Instagram posts there would be if little kids had Instagram too (well, the ones that don’t already).

#2 Universal Studios Theme Parks

If you haven’t been to Universal Studios yet, you’ve got four to choose from, with theme parks in Orlando, Hollywood or closer to home in Singapore and Japan.

#3 Central Park, New York

Located in middle-upper Manhattan, Central Park is the most visited urban park in the United States as well as one of the most filmed locations in the world.

#4 Times Square, New York

If you haven’t seen the naked cowboy, you haven’t seen anything at all.

#5 Eiffel Tower, Paris

One of the most recognisable structures in the world, it might surprise you that it was heavily criticised  by French artists when it was constructed in 1899.

#6 Louvre Museum, Paris

Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa is the Louvre’s most popular attraction, while the pyramid is an attraction that features on many photographers’ bucket lists.

#7 Las Vegas Strip

We’d tell you, but what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas…

#8 Santa Monica Pier, Los Angeles

Amusement piers were all the rage in the early 1900s. The famous Pacific Park opened in 1996 originally as a free admission amusement park, and has become a loved family-friendly destination for its roller coasters, bumper cars, and that massive Ferris wheel.

#9 Brooklyn Bridge, New York

Completed in 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest in the United States and connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River.

#10 VDNKh, Moscow
