Fenway Park’s Green Monster is one of the prime spots to watch a Red Sox game in Boston, and it's packed with important pieces of the team’s history. This 37.2-foot high wall offers a breathtaking view from left field and sports unique barstool seating with table space. Fans wait months to get a chance to sit on the Green Monster for the view alone (or to catch a home run ball.) The wall sports one of the few manual scoreboards in America, which offers a bit of classic charm in a world of big screen televisions and digital effects. Employees within the wall have to work fast to pop in scorecards and keep up with the game’s progression. The wall's interior is also packed with history with signatures and messages left by some of history’s greatest athletes, musicians and other celebrities who have ventured inside. You can turn to any section of the walls inside this tiny space and see a piece of Red Sox history.

But in 2018, with a growing number of tourists seeking out the same experiences at popular destinations, some have started taking a different approach: telling visitors to rewrite their ‘bucket lists’ and seek out alternative things to see and do. This week, Tourism Australia launched a $10m campaign called ‘UnDiscover Australia’. Aimed at tourists from south-east Asia, Singapore, Malaysia, India and Indonesia, the campaign was launched in a bid to showcase the unfamiliar things to see and do in the country that receives over eight million tourists per year.
