Good news, travelers: your ultimate bucket list is here.

Lonely Planet released its list of the Top 50 places to visit on Monday, and we're already packing our bags. The list is an excerpt from the company's upcoming book, Ultimate Travel: The 500 Best Places on the Planet...Ranked, which hits shelves in early October.

The locations were ranked based on 40 years of guidebook information that was compiled into what the company called "a definitive wish list of the world’s best sights as named by Lonely Planet's globetrotting community of travel experts."

The list includes a few places you've been told to visit before, but then again, if the Great Wall of China and the Taj Mahal weren't on this list, we'd be suspicious.

Check out Lonely Planet's descriptions of the top 15 places to see in your lifetime below.
