This is a place devoted to giving you deeper insight
into the news, trends, people and technology behind Bing.
Some places around the world are easily associated with one iconic activity or another. England has its afternoon tea rituals; Argentina, its sultry tango; and Hawaii, the sport of surfing, a gift from the islands’ first inhabitants.
A new Bing Travel slide show depicts some of these legendary experiences around the world. These are must-do activities — such as enjoying the beach in Los Angeles, quieting the mind in a Japanese garden, or making a pilgrimage to the Statue of Liberty in New York City — that should be sampled by any visitor who wants to get a feel for the places they travel to. Call it the global travel buff’s lifetime checklist.
We think the best of these distinctive experiences are the ones that aren’t limited primarily to tourists. When an activity is enjoyed equally by locals and visitors alike, that’s when it’s a real icon of its homeland.
Which of these essential travel experiences are on your own life list, and which ones have we left out? Share your thoughts with other travelers in the comments section.
