Six hundred and seventy-two thousand hours — that’s all the time that we have on this earth, and there are more amazing views and experiences than anyone can do. To make the most of that time we create our bucket lists or things to do before we “kick the bucket.” When you make yours, these five places better be on it!
New York City
A bar crawl in this concrete jungle would take a lifetime to complete, with the Big Apple having approximately 10,000 bars and pubs within its skyscraper-laced streets. From the exotic, chemistry-themed Apotheke bar to the historic Raunces Tavern, you can always find a cocktail before you continue on to view Times Square, watch a play on Broadway or visit Lady Liberty herself.

This eclectic Eastern city has plenty to do to keep your entertained whether it’s day or night. During the day you can visit Sky100, an indoor observation deck on the top floor of a skyscraper, Hong Kong Disneyland or the Stanley Market, a traditional open-air market. If you’re looking to escape the city, there are plenty of scenic nature spots such as Tian Tan Buddha, Nan Lian Garden, or the Dragon’s Back. During the night, there are tons of dive bars to satisfy whatever craving you may have, especially in Wan Chai, known as the city’s party district.
Imagine it, the smell of the sea, the sand between your toes, and a sweet “sex on the beach” in your hand. That is paradise. After a day filled with swimming, kite surfing, snorkeling, and incredible ocean side views, you can settle down in one of the bungalows on a private island but not before visiting Amanahune to see some of the island’s native culture.
Venice, Italy, is a place to unwind with some of the best wine the globe has to offer. In between the area’s historic canals, you can find entire bars filled with wine. If you’re concerned about finding a good meal to pair with your wine, you won’t have to look far for some of Italy’s best fare. When not partaking in this romantic city’s food and drink, there are hundreds of years of history to soak up in 16th-century chapels and art museums with artwork dating back to the 13th century.
You’ll find lots of choice alcoholic drinks as you travel across the globe, and Bali is no exception with something you won’t find elsewhere. The region is known for its local spirit, which they call Brem. When you’re not soaking up this local delight, you can soak up the beautiful scenery on one of the many hiking trails that curl around waterfalls and active volcanoes. If you’re looking for a more spiritual experience you can even visit an 11th-century Buddhist temple!
Whether you choose the beaches of Bora Bora, the urban cityscape of Hong Kong, or both, you’re sure to have a great time and cross these locations off your bucket list.
