The BBC Holiday programme did a top 50 of places to visit before dying.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/50/destinations/places/

Ones I've visited are in bold.

Ones I'd never heard of before taking this quiz are underlined, with locations added.

Comments in italics.

1 The Grand Canyon (I'm kinda embarrassed that I haven't yet visited, given how close I've gotten.)
2 Great Barrier Reef (Would love to visit. But boy do I hate 14 hour plane flights.)
3 Florida (Eh. It's nice, but I don't see why it's particularly worth visiting.)
4 South Island, New Zealand
5 Cape Town
6 Golden Temple, Amritsar, India
7 Las Vegas (Eh. If you're into that sort of thing, I suppose.)
8 Sydney
9 New York
10 Taj Mahal
11 Canadian Rockies
12 Uluru, Australia
13 Chichen Itza
14 Machu Picchu
15 Niagara Falls
16 Petra, Jordan
17 The Pyramids, Egypt
18 Venice (Would like to visit.)
19 Maldives, in the Indian Ocean
20 Great Wall of China
21 Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
22 Hong Kong (Kinda curious about the city that spawns all those great, strange movies)
23 Yosemite National Park
24 Hawaii (Mmmmmmmmmmmm........)
25 Auckland
26 Iguassu Falls, Argentina/Brazil
27 Paris
28 Alaska (Really want to visit. Either a cruise, or volunteering for the Iditarod.)
29 Angkor Wat
30 Himalayas
31 Rio de Janeiro
32 Masai Mara (After watching all those "Big Cat Diaries" shows, kinda want to visit.)
33 Galapagos Islands (Want to visit)
34 Luxor
35 Rome
36 San Francisco (Yes! Everyone should visit San Francisco!)
37 Barcelona
38 Dubai, United Arab Emirates (I had heard the name, but I didn't know what or where it was. *embarrassed blush*)
39 Singapore
40 La Digue, Seychelles
41 Sri Lanka
42 Bangkok
43 Barbados
44 Iceland (Would like to visit.)
45 Terracotta Army, Xi'an, China (I had heard of this, but not by that name)
46 Zermatt, Switzerland (I had in fact heard of The Matterhorn! Why didn't they say Matterhorn?)
47 Angel Falls, Venezuela
48 Abu Simbel, Egypt
49 Bali
50 French Polynesia

I'm kind of amazed that there are no Japan destinations listed. I'm less amazed that there are no UK destinations listed, since it was a UK TV show. But I'd certainly list some in my top fifty.

I'd like to see the Keys. The rest of it I can't stand.

Machu Picchu
I can not believe that this is actually happening, as a peruvian I feel really frustated because our government is not good in this task of protecting Machu Picchu. They only think in the present, on what is going to happen now, but they do not think about the future. People want jobs, but when the city is destroyed by some stupid peruvian authorities there will be no jobs. I hope that the world organizations will help to keep this Inca City for future generations, because this legacy does not only belongs to Peru, it belongs to all of us.
