See The Northern Lights
If you’re planning on ticking off any bucket list, you can’t not go and see the majesty that is the northern lights. Seeing a natural multi-colored light show is one of the most supernatural, yet natural, things you’ll ever experience on this planet. Be sure to wrap up warm though, as you can only see it in the Arctic region.

If the cold isn’t your bag, then you should head to Bagan and watch the sunrise over this ancient capital of Myanmar. Watching the dawn break over ancient Buddhist temples, combined with the quirky view of hot air balloons floating over the landscape, shows this monument to the East as one of the most beautiful sights in the world.
