In honor of the Huffington Post's 9th birthday today, we're looking at "9 Places You Absolutely, Positively Must See Before You Die."

Almost everyone's familiar with the perennial guide to iconic travel destinations,"1,000 Places To See Before You Die." With its emphasis on experiences, the book includes everything from the Sahara Desert to Machu Picchu. No doubt most folks have drafted at least a mental bucket list by the time they reach 50 -- and most include places people want to visit in their lifetime. We asked our Facebook fans what spots they absolutely, positively must see before they die and here's what they had to say. Have anything to add? Let us know in comments.
