At a time when my family and I are planning our trip, this is an excellent list to have! I am putting these in my travel bag and including these options of my list. What surprises me (though, it really doesn't) is that Machu Picchu is on this list. That's amazing. Thank you!

I have only been to New York out of all of these places but I can testify that it was crazy. For someone like me from a small town it was a bit overwhelming, but you have to see the sights so what else are you going to do?

These places have always been on my bucket list, but I never thought of them being that crowded! Wow. When you see perfect photos, they are always empty. I lived in Orlando for a while and became a master at hitting Disney during the offseason. I wonder if these places have one?

What an amazing compilation of the famous and beautiful places. I have only been to Buckingham Palace and it is so magnificent and beautiful, worth watching. I want to visit the Taj Mahal next.

Central Park isn't always that crowded but yeah it can be full of people most of the time. I've never been to The Great Wall or Hong Kong Disneyland! It's still worth it, I assume.

Never been to any of these places. Funny how the photos I have seen do not show this, the tourism always show it more invitingly. But then I guess these have to do with on/off season. I would be one to enjoy them in off season as I can't stand crowded places, it robs you of pure enjoyment and appreciation of their beauty, especially the natural ones.
