The Top UNESCO World Heritage Sites Were Ranked & This Canadian Destination Made The Cut


The world’s most captivating UNESCO sites were listed and a stunning Canadian destination managed to make the cut.

Explore, a travel tour company located in the United Kingdom, created a shortlist of the most visually unforgettable experiences for travellers across the globe. The travel operator narrowed the list of over 1,000 UNESCO World Heritage sites down to 52 based on how recognizable they are, ensuring landmarks from each continent were included. Explore then conducted a study where participants were shown the shortlisted landmarks and through eye-tracking technology, determined which UNESCO sites yielded the most attention.

“With thousands of UNESCO World Heritage sites across the globe that beckon to be visited at least once in a lifetime, they make for amazing places to set our sights on our next adventure holiday,” Explore said.

So, which UNESCO site topped the list?

Explore ranked Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal in the United Kingdom first. The Welsh landmark floats over the River Dee and is known to be the highest and longest navigable aqueduct in the world.
