Travel Superlatives & Extremes

The biggest, tallest, smallest, oldest, hottest, coldest things in the world that people can reasonably visit (well, maybe not all of them are reasonable...). Note that there is a lot of debate about some of these because you can define biggest, oldest, etc. in multiple ways. You can even define things like "church" or "festival" in multiple ways. I just tried to pick what it seemed that most people agreed on.
