China and Everest feature on people's bucket list

28th Jan 2013

A survey of 2,000 adults has revealed visiting China to trek along the Great Wall and climbing Mount Everest are ranked highly as bucket list targets.

The desire to travel loomed large among those polled in the bucket list from Helly Hansen.

A trip to the Taj Mahal and to the Arctic Circle to catch a view of the Northern Lights were also among the aspirations. Although not directly related to travel, another target - becoming a millionaire - could certainly help us tick a few others off the list.

Also appearing on the 50 things to do list was taking a Formula One car for a spin, producing a life-changing invention, and riding a Segway.

A Helly Hansen spokesperson said it was "fantastic" to see so many individuals are passionate about heading for the great outdoors for new challenges, adding: "Setting yourself a yearly goal can be a great motivator, whether your goal is to run a marathon, climb a mountain or simply improve your general health and wellbeing."
