My Travel Bucket List That I Wish To Check Off by 35

Table of content

Travel the world has been my life goal since I was 14 and I have a travel bucket list with me since then.

My first experience of travel abroad was with my family to Bangkok, Thailand when I was 14 years old. That experience opened my mind and ignited my desire to want to travel more often to different parts of the world !

Ever since then, I grab every chance I had to go on trips. I was lucky to have had the opportunities to participate in orchestra performance trips to Taiwan and Beijing while I was in high school.

I dreamt about going on trips to explore the world either with my family, my partner or myself.

So, I am writing down my travel bucket list here with the aspiration of accomplishing every item on this list by the time I reach the age of 35. I list down the places based on different continents. Let’s see how many places I could check off !

Asia

The majority of the destinations I’ve visited are situated in Asia. Given their proximity to my home country, Malaysia, I’ve had a broader range of opportunities to explore these places.

Thailand

Shang Hai, China

Bali, Indonesia

South Korea

Islands in Philippines

Maldives

Jordan

Turkey

Dubai

Nepal

Macao

Europe

Europe has many places with mix culture. There places with amazing cities, amazing sea view, pretty mountains and many many more. Europe is also the continent that has the most historical sites.

There are so much to see in Europe and I wish I could dedicate an entire year to explore each one of them. Up to this date, I had been to a few of these destinations. I really love the relaxing atmosphere and lifestyle in Europe and I definitely want to visit more!

Malta

Sweden

Greece

Spain

Poland

United Kingdom

Austria

Switzerland

Finland

Norway

Ireland

Monaco

Vatican

Denmark

Iceland

North America

Thanks to my Work and travel experience in USA, I had the opportunity to set foot on United States! 

There are so many to see in North America and I wish one day I could return and explore more!

Greenland

Haiti

Canada

Costa Rica

South America

I have friends from South America ( encounters from my work and travel experience), but I had never been there. 

The captivating landscapes of South America never fail to enchant me, especially when my friends from Peru share their photos. I really look forward to the day when I can finally see these amazing places!

Peru

Bolivia

Aruba

Chile

Oceania

Oceania, as its name implies, is a continent brimming with locations that boast picturesque natural landscapes and captivating ocean views.

Among these destinations, I’ve had the opportunity to explore Australia, and I must admit that I’ve developed a deep fondness for the country, particularly due to its mesmerising natural beauty.

New Zealand

Fiji

Papua New Guinea

Africa

I have never been to any part of Africa but it’s on my list! 

In my impression, Africa is all about wild life exploration and I’m thrilled to explore. Every time I saw pictures of Africa online, the urges to visit there intensifies.

I am saving up as travelling to Africa from Malaysia is pretty far and the expenses are certainly very high. And I wish someday I will have the privilege to set foot on the soil of these remarkable destinations:

Morocco

South Africa

Ethiopia

Madagascar

Egypt

That’s a wrap! My travel wishlist encompasses around 50 countries, and so far, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting 10. There’s still an exciting tally of 40 countries left to explore within the next 8 years. Here’s to hoping I can achieve this ambitious goal—perhaps at least half of it (haha)!
