Most travelers have a bucket list with dreams of over-the-top trips they want to take some day. Whether it involves sleeping under the stars in the Sahara or island-hopping in Greece, they are trips that fire the imagination.

FlightNetwork, a travel booking site, sent out invites to 800 travel experts to share their favorite spectacular destinations around the planet. The result is a collection of 50 over-the-top bucket list trips with a multitude of links to flights, airport info and the like. (It’s on a travel booking website, after all.)

Some of the destinations are exactly what you’d expect: the Taj Mahal, the pyramids of Giza, the overwater bungalows of the Maldives. Others are unexpected — a Delhi slum tour, for example, may not be everyone’s cup of chai. But the sheer span of the list is very fun indeed, with trip ideas that range from sudsing it up at Munich’s Oktoberfest to diving at the Great Barrier Reef and exploring the Great Wall of China.
