There are no "must see" anyything. I've beeen to 150 countries, and never been to Rome or Athens or Moscow or Beijing or Tokyo or Buenos Aires. . Other places make up for them.

Denver, Colorado for sure. When I first started traveling I went there and absolutely fell in love with the place. Even though the east will always be my home.

A lot of people consider traveling in third world countries to be a little too much “adventure” for them.

I can’t say I blame them necessarily. lol

People who are saying there are no such things as “must-see places” are being a little bit disingenuous.

Do you think that a random village somewhere in the middle of Nebraska is every bit as worth seeing as Tokyo Japan?

If not, then you definitely have some sort of ranking in your mind, no?

You don't have to go to Tokyo to see and experience Japan. No more so than you have to go to Mexico City to experience Mexico. Next time you're passing through, have Sunday brunch at the auction barn, in Ericson, Nebraska. Americana at its best, not to be found in New York City.


A ranks higher than B is not the same as saying you "must see" A.

Some people want to visit Mecca or Jerusalem. Some want to see the capitals of Europe. People would probably find my list very peculiar but I would be going for my own reasons. I've been to places like Rome, Cusco, Machu Picchu, Florence, Vancouver, Victoria, and major US cities. In Africa, I'd like to visit Gondar & Lalibela. In Australia, Sydney. In South America, Buenos Aires (or Santiago). In Europe, probably Dublin followed by Paris, London, St. Petersburg, Gdansk. In North America, Mexico City then Quebec. In Asia, several...Ho Chi Minh City (old Saigon), Beijing, Xi'an, Nara, Istanbul. I would throw in Havana and Willemstad and Wellington..
