We're living in an "Age of Experiences." A time when memories matter a lot more to people than things. The question is: Which experiences are most worth having? To answer, Time Out
has published a list of "The 50 Best Things to Do in the World Right Now." Curated from more than 5,000 recommendations by roughly 200 expert writers and editors in more than 400 destinations worldwide, as well as suggestions from 15,000 Time Out readers, the top 10 experiences are:
10. Taste Portuguese cuisine at the Time Out Market
in Lisbon, Portugal, where the city's best dishes are available under a single roof.
9. Eat at Mil
, Peru's only restaurant specializing in "high-altitude" cuisine -- ingredients grown at 11,500 feet or above.
8. Explore the work of Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí at Barcelona's Casa Vicens
, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005, but wasn't opened to the public until November 2017.
7. Watch a movie at Cinespia
, a series of film screenings that take place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, one of the oldest cemeteries in Los Angeles.
6. Visit the Museum of Old and New Art
in Tasmania, Australia, where you'll lose yourself in a hallucinatory new exhibit that turns light into art.
5. Play tejo -- Colombia's wacky national sport -- at Los Amigos Club
in Cali, Colombia; the sport involves drinking beer while throwing metal pucks into a goal that's packed with clay, which itself is studded with small explosives that explode if you hit them.
4. Explore Meow Wolf's "House of Eternal Return,"
an interactive art installation in Santa Fe, N.M., that's known for secret passages, climbing apparatuses and surrealist sculptures; the venue describes itself as "a unique combination of children's museum, art gallery, jungle gym and fantasy novel."
3. Sweat it out in the "Solar Egg,"
an egg-shaped sauna in Kiruna, Sweden; created by artist duo Bigert & Bergström for Swedish housing company Riksbyggen, it's clad in reflective gold steel and heated by a wood burner that's shaped like a human heart.
2. Attend a party at House of Yes
, a Burning Man-esque club in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y., where themed parties promise an out-there mix of dance, circus, theater and cabaret.
1. Visit Tokyo's Yayoi Kusama Museum
