New ‘bucket list’ reveals the 50 top things to experience in the world right now

A brand new ‘bucket list’ has revealed the best 50 things to experience in the world right now – and visiting a polka dot museum in Japan is top.

It beat a night of partying at a famous New York hot spot as well as a having a sauna in an egg-shaped pod in Swedish Lapland.

The list has been put together by local Time Out editors, city experts and 15,000 people surveyed across the world. Here we put the spotlight on the top 10 in order of must-do…

1. Yayoi Kusama Museum – Tokyo (Japan)

The Yayoi Kusama Museum is a slender, minimalist space that opened in 2017.

It is a polka dot paradise and Instagram heaven, giving fans of artist Yayo Kusama an intimate glimpse into her work.

Time Out said: “Those who nab some are rewarded with an unforgettable experience of beautiful masterworks.”

2. House of Yes, New York (USA)

Located in Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighbourhood, House of Yes is a hidden-away club celebrating all things hedonistic.

According to Time Out, it is a place where anything goes, and it is keeping the city’s weird streak alive.

On any given night, the house is packed with body painters, aerialists, dancers and more.

3. Solar Egg by Bigert & Bergström for Riksbyggen – Kiruna (Sweden)

Solar Eggs is an intiative by artists Bigert & Bergström for Riksbyggen in Kiruna, Sweden, one of the northernmost towns in the country. The Solar Egg is a giant, shiny golden-mirror clad social scultpure laid out in Lapland’s icy landscape. We recommend trying the very cool sauna after an reinvigorating icy walk in the artic. 📍67.8558° N, 20.2253° E 📷@abtdesigns • • Tag #vadotravel or #vadoapp to featured • • • #sweden #solaregg #travellife #travel #wanderlust #lovetotravel #travelholic #travelbug #travelandlife #travelwithme #explorer #globetrotter #discoverearth #exploremore #instatraveling #beautifuldestinations #travelandleisure #wonderfuldestinations #traveltheworld #awesomeearth #wekeepmoments #stayandwander #vadotravel

Kiruna is one of Sweden’s most northernmost towns and home to an out-of-this-world sauna.

Solar Egg is a giant, shiny golden-mirror-clad social sculpture by artists Bigert & Bergström, laid on a hilltop and surrounded by Lapland’s icy landscape.

Time Out say it is an insanely cool sauna and a warm cocoon to enjoy and follow with a reinvigorating naked roll in the arctic snow.

4. Meow Wolf – Santa Fe (US)

“How can I even begin to describe it? I have never felt such wonder and excitement since I was a little kid.”—Aimee S. 📸: @lindsekennedy

Taking entertainment to the next level, Meow Wolf in Santa Fe is an immersive, interactive art installation.

Inside an unassuming building in the city’s industrial district is the ‘House of Eternal Return’ – a multi-dimensional experience for adults and kids alike, featuring mind-bending and magical worlds, accessed through secret passages.

Sliding down a washing machine or climbing through a refrigerator, visitors land at the end of the tunnel in a lounge space, which is a room aglow with twinkling blue stars.

5. Tejo at Los Amigos Club – Cali (Colombia)

Colombia’s national sport, Tejo, involves drinking copious amounts of beer while throwing metal pucks into a nearby goal packed with clay.

But there is a twist: the clay is embedded with small explosives, which prove particularly difficult to avoid after a couple of drinks.

Time Out said: “The late Anthony Bourdain made Tejo internationally popular; he learned to play it at Los Amigos Club in Cali, where visitors can still toss a tejo puck, drink too much of the local brew and hang out with regulars.”

6. Museum of Old & New Art – Tasmania (Australia)

Once a neglected building, in 2014 Time Out Lisbon editors went about turning the Mercado da Ribeira into Time Out Market, a food and cultural market bringing the best of the city under one roof.

According to Time Out, the market is popular with both locals and tourists a 3.6 million visitors came to the market in 2017 to explore food from 32 restaurants and kiosk and enjoy drinks from eight bars and cafes.

There are also five shops, cooking workshops in the Chef’s Academy and events in the Time Out Studio, a 900-capacity entertainment venue.
