Niagara Falls in Canada ranked one of the world's most popular bucket-list travel spots

One of Canada's most famous natural wonders is also one of the top bucket-list travel destinations in the world.

This is according to a new report from tourism company Kuoni.

To gather its results, Kuoni examined global search volumes for 115 travel bucket list items.

The top travel bucket list experience was visiting the Maldives, a destination popular for its "gorgeous white sandy beaches, tropical blue waters and dreamy sunsets," notes Kuoni.

It found that 121 countries were searching for Maldives as a travel experience.

In second place comes one of Canada's most famous destinations, Niagara Falls.

Kuoni says the group of waterfalls that border Canada and the US, offer "a breath-taking sight many dreams of visiting."

"Travellers can experience the vast waterscape up close, with boat trips taking passengers to the base of the waterfall, providing a truly immersive experience."

Niagara Falls was the only Canadian destination to make the list.

The third bucket list destination is seeing the Mona Lisa at the Louvre in Paris, France. Visiting Bora Bora in French Polynesia and climbing the steps of the Statue of Liberty placed fourth and fifth, respectively.

The list was dominated by destinations in the US, as it looks like travellers are keen on other bucket list experiences in the country, such as visiting Times Square in New York City, going to the White House in the nation’s capital, as well as visiting the infamous Alcatraz prison in San Francisco and admiring the views at Yosemite National Park in California.

Travellers were also interested in visiting Stonehenge and the Big Ben in the UK.

There were also some Southeast Asian experiences on the list, including visiting the beautiful Taj Mahal in India and trekking through the Himalayas, which is a travel experience that encompasses Bhutan, India, Nepal, China, and Pakistan.
