There is so much to see in this world that it may be hard for someone to actually create a bucket  list for the fear of missing out on some of the greatest places to visit and experience. But in spite of the numerous places to visit and things to do, there are some repetitive places and things among the bucket list of most people. Here are five of the most famous entries of the different traveler's bucket list.

See the Northern Lights- "The northern lights are one of nature's great displays: a mysterious, multicolored show in which the night sky is suddenly lit up with a wondrous glow that twists and swirls like a heavenly lava lamp," says Nigel Tisdall, Telegraph Travel's Northern Lights expert of

Temples of Angkor in Cambodia- Angkor Wat is the most recommended and best preserved temples to see - the 500 acre site is one of the largest religious monuments in the world. The Indian city of Agra may not seem appealing, but a day visit to marvel at the Taj Mahal is worth the trip. The ivory-white marble mausoleum is one of the new seven wonders of the world.

Trek to Machu Picchu- "Machu Picchu is so well-known and so certain to fill travelers with high expectations that you might think it's doomed to disappoint. No other South American archaeological site comes close when it comes to visitor numbers and broad appeal (coach tourists mingle with backpackers and hardcore hikers at the ruin every day of the year). Only Sacsayhuaman in Cuzco - which is usually part of a Machu Picchu itinerary - is comparable for sheer scale and architectural audacity," says Chris Moss, Telegraph Travel's South America expert.

Grand Canyon- It is one of the largest and wonderful natural sites in northern Arizona that is a must see. If you thought visiting any desert is all you need to experience the sands - why not try visiting the driest of them all. According to, the Atacama Desert in Chile is the driest place on Earth and as a result there is no greenery, shade, cities or pollution.

Tour Patagonia- "Bienvenido a la Patagonia", says the sign at Balmaceda airport in Chile. There's something stirring about being welcomed not to a nation or a city but to a landscape of the imagination, a site of myth-laden memoirs and storied exploration, says Chris Moss, Telegraph Travel's Patagonia expert.
