A travel guidebook company has released its list of the best places on Earth to visit. It is the Lonely Planet's "Ultimate Travel List". It ranks 500 of the must-see places to add to your bucket list. It is only the second time this list of unmissable travel experiences has been issued. The guidebook company said its guide is, "designed to be a companion to your armchair travels or the tool to refuel your wanderlust". It added that the book, "features more than 200 new destinations in a picture-perfect wish-list, each ranked in order of brilliance." Lonely Planet said: "The list contains a mix of knock-out new openings, sights that have upped their game, or places more relevant to the way we travel now."

Top of the list and the number-one travel destination is the ancient city of Petra in Jordan. The guide said: "The treasured UNESCO Heritage Site of Petra is the must-see ultimate experience on our list. Once nearly lost to the outside world, the sandstone city is now one of the most loved places on the planet." It recommended readers, "rediscover the city's eternal air of mystery in the early morning or in the hours before closing when it's at its most atmospheric". The Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador was second on the list, with the spectacular sandstone monolith Uluru in Australia being third. Lonely Planet says the book has something for everyone in every corner of the world.
