Things to see before you die: World's best landmarks


Which of the world's landmarks are you determined to see before you die? Do you yearn to take in the Taj Mahal, perhaps? Or glide under San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge? Or perhaps the Machu Picchu is top of your bucket list?

This year's list of the world's top 25 landmarks, provided by Tripadvisor, features the most yearned-for places on the planet - and, as well as lots of very well-known ones, there are quite a few you may not even have considered visiting.

2014 has seen a number of new entries, with some of last years', such as the Bellagio Fountains, Las Vegas and the Rockefeller Observation Deck dropping off the list entirely, giving way to new additions such as the Golden Temple in India and the ancient city of Ephesus in Turkey.

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi climbs from 13th place last year to 2nd this year, while and Machu Picchu, Peru maintained it's number one position once again.

Like the Wonders of the World, these landmarks have to be seen to be believed.

Have a look at the entire list to find out what other fascinating sites made the cut this year and add them to your list of places to see before you die.
