Seeing as it’s voted for by average Joe’s like us, you’d expect that Tripadvisor’s list of the top ranked things to do in every country in the world would be quite predictable. Sure, there are a few gems that you’d expect to see, like the Taj Mahal in India and the Niagara Falls in Canada.

But some things have surprised us quite a bit. For example, the top ranked attraction in the whole of the UK is… drum roll please… The Harry Potter studio tour. What?! And South Korea’s Seoul Metro takes the number one spot over there. Yes, a metro.

The UAE is home to many world-famous attractions, so guessing the winner isn’t easy, but it’s clear to see why Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque comes in at number one. Located in Abu Dhabi, the impressive site of worship can hold 7,000 people in the main prayer hall and over 40,000 overall.

Nearby, Qatar’s top attraction is the Museum of Islamic Art, while Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is considered the best place to visit in Oman. Unsurprisingly, Petra takes the top spot in Jordan.
