We know that one of the best ways to experience local culture is to visit a
country's landmarks, but where do you start?
Travel website TripAdvisor has shortlisted 16 attractions in continents all
over the world which received the most reviews by travellers last year.
Some were mesmerised by the natural beauty of the attractions, others were
wowed by the wonders of human architecture.
Travellers also let you in on which attractions are free, giving you the the
best value for money, while experiencing local culture.
But don't be fooled into thinking that an attraction is a place. Sometimes,
the best way to get to know a city is to hop onto the attraction itself, such
as Bangkok's Skytrain or Melbourne's city trams. You'll probably get to meet
all sorts of people, and it gets you to the sight by showing you around.
