Records is a travel topic.
Records are things to be broken — they're the "firsts" in everything. This guide covers any records that can be tied to a particular place, including geographical records and man-made, developmental records.
For basically everything on Earth, there's a record: there is always going to be one northernmost point of land, one tallest building, and one hottest temperature ever reached. Such record-breaking points are scattered around the earth, and all they need is someone to find them. However, huge numbers of record-breaking locations have been discovered.
Therefore, records — especially world records — are often tourist destinations. This has become particularly true thanks to the Guinness Book of Records.
