This is a post from a while ago, but I thought it was worth re-posting as many people haven’t seen it and it’s buried in the archives. It’s a 101 things to do before you die type of article.

Have you ever needed a little inspiration in order to brainstorm the kind of activities and sights you would like to see around the world?

Well I have, and I wanted to come up with “101 Things To Do Around The World” in order to inspire people to think.

It’s not a definitive list but rather simply a list of random things to do on a trip around the world that will hopefully trigger ideas for the reader.

I also created a 150 things to do before you die, crowdsource for people on twitter.

If you come up with your own additions to the 101 list of things please feel free to add them below as a comment.

    How about watching the changing of the guards/horse guards at buckingham palace in England, visting The Needles On the Isle of Wight, enjoying the week long festivities of Cowes Week on the Isle of Wight (one of the world's largest sailing races), taking a trip to the Louvre or Notre Dame in Paris, going on the London Eye…

  • pb

    Love the list but as a true blue Aussie I have to add that for Number 42, koalas aren't bears….
    and I'd add try the drink hakkiestrudt in South Africa (it translates to 'barbed wire')

  • Hi pb,

    Ah you learn something everyday! Thanks for the comment. Hakkiestrudt somes pretty deadly? I'm guessing it's alcoholic right??

    Paul @

  • I’ve done a few of these now since travelling, although some in different locations πŸ™‚ Would reccomend them all!

  • Thanks Rob,

    What other locations would you recommend?

  • HAX

    Hey Travmonkey. Great List by the way. I decided that I would really like to do something interesting with my life. I have done Japan as an exchange student and have visited Thiland as well. One thing I would like to suggest is treking the mountains of chein mie (not spelled correctly). But was an amazing experience. Anyways I am bored with my life at the moment and realized I have not done anything super interesting with it so I decided I want to do a not so typical resprt type of trip. I am leaning towards the tomato fight in spain. Have you been? Any suggestions? Also I saw your post that you traveled for 22 months. If you don’t mind me asking. How do people manage to find the funds to travel for so long? Thanks. πŸ™‚

  • TravMonkey

    Hi Hax,

    Thanks for the comment. I haven’t been to La Tomatina Tomato Fight in Bunyol, but it looks like fun!

    I think backpacking has so many rewards the trouble is there are just so many great places to experience in the world!

    If you want to do something different I would suggest picking a place that would put yourself out of your comfort zone and challenge you a little. These kinds of experiences are great for learning about yourself and different cultures. Perhaps somewhere that has a very different culture to home?

    As for funds, I saved a lot of money for about a year before I left home. I also worked for about 5 months in Sydney in Australia. That paid for a lot of my travels around South America.

  • jane

    Great list!!…So many places to explore on this globe!!..I chuckle about my last trip to Nepal and have to add one might want to *experience/risk your life*on a rickshaw ride through the streets of Kathmandu…When in Egypt also visit Saqqara Pyramid site(oldest pyramid in the world,many smaller arch sites/paintings to explore) just south of Giza…Awake to the sounds of howler monkeys dropping fruitpits on the roof of your palapa and jungle trek/camp in Costa Rica-incredible species and also visit Arenal Volcano at night and watch lava erupt and flo illuminate down it…Get spooked by barracuda and shark, view brilliant marine life when snorkeling/diving around Cayman Brac/Little Cayman Is.

  • TravMonkey

    Hi Jane,

    Some great activities and sights you've added there. Perhaps I should publish 201 things to do around the world! πŸ˜€


    Paul @

  • I love this list because I've tried many times to encapsulate all the amazing things I want to do and see around the world. I was surprised that you put mud baths of yangshuo as that was one of my favorite experiences from China. btw there's a picture of my sister and I with our trusty whiteboard completely covered in mud…

    check it out at (POST – mud pits, marriage, and a 2 hour trip around the world)

    Also as an add on…I would say the fjords of Norway, Cliffs of Moher in Ireland, Ice Hotel in Sweden, Arctic Circle/Santas Village in Rovaniemi Finland, sand boarding and camel rides through Morocco,kite surfing in California, Island hopping on a sailboat in the caribbean, sleeping at a jail turned hostel in Ljubljana Slovenia called Hostel Celica, rock climbing in Railay/Tonsai Thailand, dodging moped traffic in Hanoi Vietnam, Symphony of Lights in Hong Kong, 24hr huge outdoor crazy food venues in Singapore, and hang gliding out in colorado have all been amazing things do see and do around the world.

  • Hi Justin,

    Great photos of the mub baths. I've been there myself a while ago! It was great fun! Love the white board messages!


    Paul @

  • Hey,

    Great list! I am impressed to see my tiny home country of New Zealand represented so frequently on it, and I have another one for you.

    Climb an Active Volcano
    – On White Island, New Zealand, you walk through the ash up to the egde of the vent of the volcano and look right in! Absolutely great experience!

    Thank you for the inspiration,

    Thanks for the comment! At this rate I'll have to draw up a new list of 101 things!

  • Great list! My favorite is number 83. Well, it's number one on my 'to-see' list πŸ˜‰ And maybe something to add to number 37, jetboating in Queensland, NZ.

  • Hi Isabelle,

    I remember seeing the jetboating in Queenstown, NZ but I didn't actually do it… I opted for the bungee instead πŸ˜€ .

  • Nothing about Belize? There are some true wonders here – especially the Belize Barrier Reef System. I would suggest scuba diving at Turneffe Atoll and/or the Great Blue Hole for starters. The ATM caves are not to be missed either. Great list otherwise.

  • TravMonkey

    Sorry Pedro, no Belize… yet!

    You're making me think about visiting Belize! πŸ˜€

    If I'm in the country I'll be heading to the Pedro Inn!

    Visit Maldives!

  • Paul

    I've done a lot of the above world travel wise and I'd add write a book and get it published. And have 'great sex' with someone who really, really wants you. I've done The Great Wall of China, done a degree in philosophy while travelling the world, dived the great Barrier Reaf and taken a 4 year holiday but the two things I mentioned above stand out.

  • kanika

    hi, thats a great list.. but i'd say you must try some places in India too πŸ™‚

  • Great list and nice to see that I've done a few things off this list. Cape Town, Muy Thai, Giza so many things I've done and there are still so many to do.

    This would be a fantastic spark to book a ticket!

  • Ingrid

    That's a great list.

    It could be my to do list, as I've only done 27/101.

    Something that might be worth to consider is the Tiger Leaping Gorge trek in Yunnan, China. It's just beautiful there.

  • Jamie

    Great List

    Loved My Skydive in Wanaka last year

  • David Hemmett

    Great list, how about a couple of days at the Calgary Stampede ?
    Be prepared for long days as it is not just a Rodeo but a complete fun fair at which most of Canada ( and English like myself ) seem to turn up for. ( see the cowboy hats on the aeroplane on the way out ! ).
    The queue for the on site Saloons are long, but they do not close until early morning.
    Great City.

    We only have this one life. I love the list! I have been working on mine and I am up to 66. I have crossed off things on my list locally, but when I graduate I am traveling the world.

    Visit Chichen Itza in Mexico. Truly amazing. Everyone should do scuba diving somewhere. I've never gone scuba diving in Australia but I did do it in Isla Mujeres and it was great.

  • Evo

    Pompeii is amazing – it's huge!

    I love this website :)I think about to do a world trip of 13months, and this website give me really the courage to do it. and handy advice. Planning to climb mount kilimanjaro and to climb to basecamp mount everest (is much cheaper than the real summit, don't have 25000 dollars to pay the permit), so I can tick off some things of this list πŸ™‚

    ps do a stop in the abbey of westfleteren (belgium) to drink the best beer of the world: brewed by monks to honor God, and if you are going there, take the train from the train station of antwerp; one of the most beautiful of the world (i am a girl from antwerp, and still impressed)

  • Great Post and site, just discovered you through following your on twitter (follow me back πŸ™‚ kwells87) I have spent 15 months travelling the world plus various holidays, I am 23 years old and managed to already tick off 51 from your live above (a couple were the activity but not EXACT location you specified) and I am so excited by the fact I am planning my next trip from October, covering South and Central America for the first half of it so hope to tick off even more of those places…but of course not just 'tick off' I love to explore and spend time at each place where possible not just rush it to say I have been :)_ is my blog for the 12 month trip I did last…want to set up my own proper site though after seeing so many great sites like your own! x

  • drive a ferrari as fast as you can…

  • So much in India I guess. Ladakh should be a must-do in this list, I think. Plus, the temples of India. And the madness of Mumbai… πŸ™‚

  • amazing place…uhhm… when i can go to there… really i want… πŸ™‚ the good list…

  • You have to have the San Blas Islands, Panama on the list. Live with the locals on any one of the 300 tiny deserted islands.

    Is much better than visiting the Roman Baths in Bath, I live in Bath!

  • Where would you do that? πŸ™‚

  • What’s so good about the islands?

    That’s cus you live it Bath πŸ˜€ I guess!

  • Caeleah

    I love the list and i’m actually writing one of my own at the minute! if you don’t mind me asking how much did you ave to save before you went travelling and how long did it take you?

  • Hi Caeleah,

    Save hmm it was a long time ago now… maybe 10k-14k UK pounds? over two years.. then I worked in Australia in the city half way.

  • love your list. ive just done my own for my blog, we have a fair few in common. cant believe i forgot pompei, probably my european highlight so far!

  • Barnicals

    Don’t the Autobahns of Germany have no speed limit?

  • Jessie

    A koala is not a bear of any sort, and in saying this it is offensive to Australians when they are called ‘Koala Bears’

  • Nice List, and during my travels I’v done quite a few of them, but one thing stikes me is Bali, why does everyone say Bali is nice for beaches? Fiji is much nicer, here on Bali (I am there at the moment) I could not find a really nice beach. Garbage and rubbish everywhere. Even when you go diving and see a wreck with nice fishes you “stumbel” upon bottles and so on.

    If someone wants a nice beach to hang out at I would not recommend Bali at all.



  • Really help full inspiration man. I’ll surely apply some of them once I become a traveling nomad.

  • -D-

    I am an Aussie and I am not offended at all… And I dare say you did not lose a second of sleep either… It is a great list and he made one or two mistakes… Oh well.

  • inci

    nothing to do in turkey :(( thats saad..

  • This is a wonderful list of what brings excitement to your life and I love it. Yet, there are particular lifetime situations where you can hardly talk about what you believe or don’t and you have to keep it for yourself. going out and screaming it won’t help much unless you are tired of breathing. That’s also a kind of inner torture which is no fun.

    So, may be one can write a list of 101 things not to do including this one and alike!

  • I didn’t see the Philippines. There’s a lot of beautiful places to see within the Philippines

  • Hi

    This is a really nice list. I am planning to put these things on my bucket list. I was wondering what would be some good careers/career path for a traveling lifestyle? It has to be a well-paying one but with flexibility. If you could reply back, I would appreciate it.


  • Wow that a lot of things to do while traveling does a life will be enough

  • I have already done over 20 and would like to do all. Thanks!

  • This is a great list and I would love to attempt number 44 – Climb Mt Kilamanjaro. Sushi is one of my favourite foods but I have never tried it in Japan! Guess that is going to have to be on the top of my own list. Thank you for sharing this very inspirational list.

  • Great list, 101 has be the most challenging!I think the empire state building should be on everyone’s list too. Personally I would love to have a Brazilian Jujitsu class with the Gracie brothers in Brazil…

  • Thanks for your comment Lucy!

    This is a really old article, I think it was republished in 2009 but actually written in 2006/2007 originally! Still many great things to do out there in the world!

    Jujitsu? Is it Brazilian?

  • Great list of places to visit!

  • Sam

    Sweet list, but did you realise that you have Machu Picchu twice?
    Well you have Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail!

    thought i should point that out to open a spot for another great thing to see.


  • This is a great list! I was stoked to see that I had done some of them already πŸ™‚

  • I have just done just 11of them and would like to do all. Thanks!

  • Scuba diving on the Great Barier Reef it’s one of my old dream. Hope come true on day!

  • Wow! What a list.really very informative. Want to see them all!

  • StudentNow


    Africa is not a country!

    For every other location you have put either “city name”, “country name” (Tulum, Mexico) OR “site name”, “country name” (Stonehenge, England) . Why for Tanzania did you put “country name”, “continent name”?

  • Hi StudentNow,

    We didn’t suggest Africa was a country. We were talking about a country (Tanzania) rather than a city or place so it made sense to give it more context.

    Thanks for your comment!

  • Frida Olsen

    Thank you for posting this AWESOME list. I am going to attempt to complete every single one by the time i die. I already got some of them down πŸ™‚
