A travel company released a list of the 500 best places on Earth to visit. It is the Lonely Planet's "Ultimate Travel List". It is the second time this list of must-see, unmissable places has been issued. The company said its guide is, "designed to be a companion to your armchair travels". Lonely Planet said: "The list contains a mix of knock-out new...sights that have upped their game, or places more relevant to the way we travel now."

Number one on the list is the ancient city of Petra in Jordan. Petra is a "treasured" UNESCO Heritage Site. It was, "once nearly lost to the outside world" but "is now one of the most loved places on the planet". Travellers can, "rediscover the city's eternal air of mystery". The Galapagos Islands was second on the list and Uluru in Australia was third. Lonely Planet says the book has something for everyone in every corner of the world.
