If you haven't started a 'places to go post-COVID' list then this story may just change that.
Tripadvisor has announced the winners of it's 2021 Travellers' Choice 'Best of the Best' Things to Do awards.
The expanded competition now covers a dozen subcategories from nature walks and hiking to watersports and adventure.

Top Overall Experience in the World:
Jet Ski Tour of Dubai: Burj Al Arab, Dubai Marina, Atlantis, Palm & Burj Khalifa

Hang-gliding Experience Rotorfly, Rio de Janeiro
Glide with a guide above the city of Rio de Janeiro. The activity is listed as one that's ideal for people who want to avoid crowds, and by the looks of the photos, that's pretty accurate.
Ziplining Forest Adventure - The Original Canopy Tour Rotorua
This attraction is a favourite for anyone who has experienced it. Soaring through a centuries-old forest canopy on this zipline adventure in Rotorua.
Zoom across six ziplines as high as 22 metres above the forest floor while learning about local history, wildlife, and nature conservation efforts.
Out of the Ordinary:
Heli Hike Fox Glacier
The heli hike offers a close-up look at Fox Glacier and goes beyond what you can see on the walking tours. There's spectacular views of the mountain, glaciers and ice falls.
Red Rock Canyon Self-Guided Electric Bike Tour
It is oh so easy to get lost in the lights of the Las Vegas Strip, in fact that's how it's designed.
One way to remind yourself which end of the day or night it is, would be jumping on a bike. Many visitors to Vegas don't realise that beyond the slots are plenty of beautiful spots waiting to be explored.
(And, the bikes are electric.)
3-Days Discovery Of Angkor, Waterfalls,Floating Village and Banteay Srei temple, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Experience the sights of Siem Reap and its surrounding areas in Cambodia during a three-day guided tour of the area.
Each day of the tour is bookended with a sunrise and sunset, with temples, lakes and other stunning scenery packed in between them.
