Best World Map with Pins for Travellers at Home

Last Updated August 14, 2023 William Tang

You are here: Home » Shopping » Best World Map with Pins for Travellers at Home

As travellers, we’re always seeking to bring a slice of our adventures, experiences, and ultimately our memories home.  We do it by collecting things like magnets and pins, and we also trinkets small  and large to display proudly at home.  One way of bringing the world home is by putting up a large world map with pins as a great way to visualize everywhere that you’ve been and everywhere that you still want to go.

While you’d think that there are many options out there, they’re more elusive than you think.  To make your choice easier, I’ve organized the top world map with pins products out on the market today.

Why pins?   You might be wondering why pins specifically?  Yes, I recognize that there are regular maps that you can purchase and the ones that you can scratch off as you travel.  These are a fun way to start but I think ultimately they’re not the display piece you ultimately want to display at home. 

With regular maps, you can’t pin anything on it unless you’re fine with a cluster of holes on your wall.  With the Scratch the World Travel Map, it’s actually more difficult to scratch the map cleanly and you’re kind of limited to scratching out countries as opposed to marking somewhere specific or perhaps marking places differently based on where you’ve been and where you want to go.

The two best market places to find these are either in a commercial market place such as Amazon or in the artisan space of Etsy.  I’ll provide examples of high quality products from both sides and a few others vendors that are a bit more difficult to find.

If you’re looking for a high-quality, detailed, framed map, look no further than Pin Adventure Map . I recently upgraded from my old Palomar Pin World (see below) to this one in my home office and I am impressed with how well-built and designed this world map with pins is. It looks absolutely stunning.

The specific one that we have is the Framed World Map with Push Pins in Glacier with a Wedgewood French Cottage frame. That said, there are so many different designs to choose from.

travel map world map

First, let’s talk about the map quality itself. I am blown away by how high of a resolution this print it. As you run your fingers through the map, it’s completely smooth and even when you put your nose right up to it, you don’t see any ink dot-type pixellation.

Make no mistake, this is a geographically accurate and up-to-date world political map that was designed in partnership with a professional cartographer. I love how it not only marks countries, states, capitals, and major cities, they also highlight lakes, rivers, tallest mountains, and even special locations such as Challenger Deep. You’ll also find accurate mapping of the ocean depth.

Next, you’ll find the Glacier model to be just visually stunning especially after you start pinning locations with the coloured push pins that are included. It adds another dimension to the artwork, and there’s something about that hue of the ocean blue against the grey and white that looks so modern and slick. I also love the Wedegwood French Cottage frame that I picked which adds a rustic and textured feel to it and has its own blue threaded into the wood.

You’ll notice as well that I’ve been able to customize the map. This is part of their personalization service. You can ask them to use one of their preset designs but if you have a special request, don’t hesitate to ask. That’s how I was able to get the Going Awesome Places logo on there!

Lastly, the ordering process was a cinch. Pin Adventures ‘ customer service is friendly and swift. I also loved how they provided previews of the map for approval before printing it.

Pin Adventure Map is a member of 1% For The Planet Movement .

TIP: Even at the 40″ x 53″ (100 cm x 135 cm) size, it is incredibly light and since it only comes with two hanging brackets on either end, tie a metal wire in between them so all you have to do is use one of these nifty picture frame hangers on your wall. It can definitely support its weight.

wood world map with pins in living room

For the last one in this list of world maps with pins, I present to you a map that’s not constrained to paper.  This world map is constructed by wood and creates a 3D jigsaw of countries where you can insert your own airplane pins for all the places that you’ve been.

wood wall map with pins close up

If you’re looking for a travel statement piece at home, this is it.  The vendor, Enjoy The Wood , on Etsy makes this completely out of birchwood plywood and is so serious about it that they even have a patent for its design.

They’ve gotten so big that they also sell directly on their own website as well .

Depending on where you want to put this in the house or office, you’ll have plenty of sizes to choose from including your choice of a map without names and borders, capitals identified or without.

At first, I thought there’d be no ways that pins could be involved but due to the softness of the wood, they’re actually designed with them in mind.  That’s why you can order these with your choice of either 30 airplanes, 60 airplanes, or country flag pins.  Double-sided tape is included to help mount the wooden map onto your wall.

Use our link below and code WILLIAMTANGUP to get 10% off. You’ll also get a free Wooden Flag Push Pin pack with every order.

palomar pinworld wall world map with pins

This one is elusively difficult to buy especially in North America.  I ended up purchasing this in the Netherlands in one of those fun art gallery stores that you can find in Europe.

palomar pinworld close up

The Palomar PinWorld (now rebranded to Palomar DearWorld ) is designed specifically to be a wall map diary.  When I saw this tag-line, I knew immediately that this was the one I was looking for.  This is a screen-printed map on coloured felt.  It has a simple and modern aesthetic that I know many of you will like.

I have this mounted with double-sided tape in my office and have since purchased additional pins as well.  I love the look of this map because they use a felt material instead of cork which gives it a different look.  I also love Palomar’s custom pins which actually resemble destination pin markers that you find on say, Google Maps, and other mapping tools.

They have many authorized resellers around the world but chances are you’re not close to one.  Your best bet is to pick this up from a reseller on Amazon .   Another store that sells this is A Touch of Modern .  You can also search for the term “Palomar – Pin World Map” for more targeted results.

For additional pins, I oddly had luck at a local art store so definitely search around.

Price: $98.58 USD Standard, $44.50 USD Mini

Sizes:  Standard (124 cm x66 cm / 29″x 26″), Mini (77 cm x 48 cm / 30″ x 19″), XL (198 cm x 124 cm / 78″ x 49″)

Other options:  Comes in Black or Light Blue

Material and process:  Felt, screen-printed

  • Unique design that has not been replicated by any other companies or Etsy creators
  • Beautiful pins and simply screen-printed design
  • Felt material means that you don’t need to be that careful pinning because they don’t leave visible holes afterwards
  • Love that the felt works with velcro which makes mounting quite easy
  • Limited colours (Black and blue)
  • Pins are difficult find when you need more
  • If you mount with Command Picture Hanging Strips as I have, you’ll notice that it droops and flares out in certain areas so it doesn’t sit perfectly flush
  • There are some strange spelling errors such as Adis Abeba for Addis Ababa.
  • Felt backing means that you need to insert the pins on an angle

BUY PALOMAR PINWORLD

canvasvows world map with pins on canvas

The beauty with purchasing from vendors from Etsy is that you have much more customization and personalization options than if you were to buy it from a store.  This product is by CanvasVows and they offer a canvas-based world map with pins.  While the base map remains the same, you have the opportunity to change:

  • Text that appears on the map (names and/or quotes)
  • Background color
  • Map type – world or country
  • Push pin colors

The product comes with 100 pins and is ready to mount.  They also create two digital proofs for approval.

Material and process:  Canvas printed

  • Many customization options
  • Standard push pins are used and easily obtained if you need more
  • As a canvas, there are many sizes available including larger formats
  • Canvas provides a premium textured feel
  • Durable print
  • There are customization limitations including the font and size of country names
  • Canvas mount means that there won’t be a solid backing for the pins to go on
  • Pin holes created are permanent so you will need to do this carefully
  • Digital files for the customization
  • Paper prints (not mounted on canvas)

BUY CANVASVOWS

push pin travel world map on canvas

If you’re looking for a framed look, this is an excellent option to give it that polished look in whichever room you decide to hang this in.  This takes advantage of the canvas print but takes it to the next step of mounting it in a wooden frame.  Another thing to pay attention to this map is that it is a more accurate and detailed map compared to the others.  Where others aren’t very detailed, this is one that looks to be straight from the atlas

push pin travel maps canvas with background

Despite this being a product sold on Amazon , they also offer customization options.  You can choose what type of wood frame you want and you can design the map with an option pin legend and personalized text.

The map comes with 100 push pins (a mix of red, white, and black).   It also comes with wire hanging kit so it is wall-ready

Price: $189.99 USD

  • They also sell 3-Panel Canvas Wraps , Full Canvas Wraps (but not framed), and Framed Paper Maps
  • It looks like they have an Etsy store with even more selection.

world map with pins cork board kit

If you’re looking for a more comprehensive kit, this cork board world map with pins is an excellent choice.  From a style perspective simple with a screen-printed map on a cork board but what I like about it is that it’s framed so it’s easy to mount on the wall and it comes with a collection of custom pins that allows you to tell your own story when it comes to your world map diary of your travels.  There are 3 packs of flags that you stick around metal pins – one for flags, a second one for monuments, and another foods of the world.

The World Map Cork Board Kit comes in either black or white and two large-format sizes.  The pin kit includes 194 different country flags with 100 sticks, 64 food stickers, and double-sided tape hangers for an easy installation.

Material and process:   Map screen printed on sustainable cork oak forest from Portugal

  • Screen printing on cork is more forgiving allowing you to pin around without worry of leaving holes behind
  • Lots of space on the cork for creative pinning to be able to tell your travel story
  • Print on cork may not be as durable
  • The adhesive provided for mounting non-framed map is not recommended
  • There will naturally be a limitation of the number of pins in the kit so once you run out, you’ll have to use alternative pins
  • Not customizable
  • There is a different design available that looks more like a Magellan explorer map of old
  • They also have a map that is USA specific

boldtuesday peel off world map on etsy

We’ve all seen the scratch off world maps and the reason why I haven’t included any so far in this list is because they don’t have come with any pins.

travel map world map

I’ve added this one by BoldTuesday as a bonus feature because I really love the minimalistic look to this world map and the fact that it’s a peel off vinyl sticker which is so much easier (and much cleaner).

To turn this into a map with pins, all you have to do is get a little creative and pick up one of these map pointer vinyl stickers which will most certainly pop from the black.

Price: Poster-only is $44.30 USD, Poster with Hanger is $63.21 USD.

Sizes: One size: 70 x 50 cm (28″ x 20″)

Other options:  None

Material and process:  3M matte, quality vinyl

  • Minimalist look that easily matches all types of decor
  • Peel off vinyl stickers for countries visited
  • Mounting kit with the hanger is convenient and clean
  • No mess when peeling off countries compared to scratch off maps
  • Secondarily, you can store all of your peeled off/visited countries in a diary or separate booklet (not included)
  • No built-in or included pins (need to purchase separately )
  • As with other maps, small countries (i.e. Pacific Islands) will not be marked/peelable
  • Only one color (black/white)
  • Only one of its kind so far.

BUY THE PEEL OFF MAP

These are my top 5 tips for pinning your map based on my experience with the Palomar PinWorld and Pin Adventure Map .

  • Think carefully about where you want to mount/hang your world map
  • Before you start, have a plan for how you want to pin the map – Will you have a different pin colour to identify which family member has been where?  Will you differentiate between where you have been and where you want to go? Will you mark cities, or just countries?
  • For the maps with materials where pins are more permanent, make sure you pin carefully
  • Stay up to date!  It’s easy to forget to do this once it’s up on the wall.  Every once in awhile, find out where you’re able to add more pins
  • Get creative with your map.  You’ll be using a ton of push pins but what about using other types of pins or perhaps creating something on your own?

The more you travel, the faster you’ll run out of pins.  When that happens, you’ll want to have these handy links ready so you can stock up.

  • 100 Assorted colours round push pins   – These are the AmazonBasics versions that come in a pack of 100
  • 600 assorted push pins – Best value price out of this entire lot
  • 100 matte round push pins – The standard round push pins that comes in multiple colors
  • 300 map push pins – The same style of pins but just more quantity and you can pick any 3 colors you want
  • Metal airplane push pins – These are from the wooden world maps but could be used for any map
  • Metallic bead head push pins – For a more glam look to your pins, you can grab this pack of 800 that will be sure to last you awhile
  • Gold push pins – Add a splash of gold to your maps

The Pin Adventure Map makes an excellent gift with their gift wrapping and customization options.

Maps come with a limited number of push pins to start but since most of them use standard circular pins , they’re easy to find online when you need more. The only exception is the Palomar PinWorld which has their own custom designed pins.

Many of these maps can be personalized and customized for display in your home or use in special events such as weddings. These will come at a small extra fee. Good examples of customizable ones are Pin Adventure Map , CanvasVows , Push Pin Travel Maps , and Burlap World Map .

The only map that is completely geographically accurate are the ones by Pin Adventure Map . The larger the map, the more detail they can put in as well. Others are mostly country-based outlines and high-level markings.

I’d love to hear about your experiences with world maps with pins.  Have you find a different one not on this list that you’re really happy with? How have you creatively set them up?  Leave a comment below to share.

Inspired Maps Scratch Off World Map Poster Designed by A U.S. Cartographer

Description: This map differs from others in the following ways:

Zoomed Insets: The insets allow for more detailed scratching, and they include the following areas:

  • Hawaii (Nihaui, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, Kanoolawe, Hawaii – Big Island)
  • Eastern Caribbean (Puerto Rico, British Virgin Islands, U.S. Virgin Is., Anguilla, St Martin, St Barthelemy, Antigua & Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Eustatius, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & Grenadines, Grenada, Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados)
  • Central and Eastern Europe (i.e. – Belgium, Luxembourg, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Kosovo)
  • Eastern Mediterranean (i.e.- Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Cyprus, Northern Cyprus)

232 Flags of the World: Divided into the following categories (Most scratch maps on the market only have 210 flags):

  • United Nations Member and Observer States
  • Non-Member Self Declared States (i.e- Taiwan, Northern Cyprus, Kosovo)
  • Dependent, Autonomous and other territories (i.e. – Greenland, Puerto Rico, Guam, Christmas Island, Turks & Caicos, etc.)

Color: A majority of scratch maps on the market today have a “black sea” of water. Inspired Maps uses a light blue waters and bright, jewel colored tones for those who appreciate a more “traditional” look. Also included topographic elements to add dimension to the map (i.e.- mountainous terrain, rivers, etc)

Outlined States/Provinces are included for: USA, Canada, Australia, UK, Russia, China & Brazil (Note: Mexico is also divided into different states but the states are not named on the map- just the outlines).

Experienced Cartographer: Inspired Maps worked closely with a cartographer in the U.S. with over 25 years of cartographic experience. He used a cartographic computer program to ensure accurate labelling of countries, seas, etc. (None of the country names, seas, etc. were manually typed, which is not the case with all scratch maps, as we have noticed some maps with spelling errors).

Each order also includes:

– Double sided Adhesive Tape Dates to stick on a frame backing, etc. – 0.71mm Scratch Pick (made from Delrin) for the broad scratching areas of the map – Precision Scratch Pen for the smaller countries, islands and borders – Wiping Cloth to remove Foil Particles – Microfiber Accessory Bag for storing accessories – Magnifying Strip to better view the smaller areas of the globe

Size: 34″ x 24″ (86 X 61 cm) Weight: 11.2 ounces Price: $29.98

Maps of Russia

Physical map of Russia showing its state boundaries, relief, major rivers, extreme points, national parks, major cities, Lake Baikal, and more.

As the world's largest country in total area, Russia showcases a wide diversity of landforms. In general terms, it is divided into some very specific geographical zones.

The broad European Plain, or Volga River Plain extends from the Ural Mountains to its western borders with Europe.

The central and southern areas of Russia include large fertile areas, marsh, steppes (plains without trees) and massive coniferous forests.

Siberia is a combination of frozen tundra, with rolling hills rising to plateaus, punctuated by scattered mountain ranges.

Mountains Mountain ranges are found across Russia, with many of the major ones stretching along its southwestern, southeastern and eastern borders

In the far southwest the Caucasus Mountains slice across the land. The country's highest point, Mt. Elbrus at 18,481 ft. (5,633 m), is located there. It has been marked on the map above by a yellow upright triangle.

Making up the natural border between European Russia and Asia , the Ural Mountains extend from the Arctic Ocean to Kazakhstan's northern border.

The Kolyma Mountains in far northeastern Russia extend about 1,126 km (700 mi) north and south to the east of the Kolyma River and roughly parallel to the coast of Siberia. Some rise to over 6000 feet (1830 meters).

Rivers Russia has more than 100,000 rivers with a length of 7 miles, or greater. Some of the world's longest rivers flow through the vast lowland plains that dominate the Russian landscape.

Significant rivers include the Volga, Dnieper and Dvina (west), the Lena, Ob, and Yenisey (central) and the Amur in the far east.

At 1,642 m (5,387 ft), Lake Baikal (marked on the map) is the deepest and among the clearest of all lakes in the world. Baikal is home to more than 1,700 species of plants and animals, two thirds of which can be found nowhere else in the world.

Steppe Long characterized as the typical Russian landscape, the steppe region displays a broad range of treeless, grassy plains punctuated by mountain ranges, and provides the best conditions for human settlement.

Taiga Accounting for over 60% of Russia, this forested region extends from its western borders then east towards the Pacific Ocean . Russia contains the world's largest reserve of coniferous wood, however, due to extensive logging the supply is steadily on the decrease; as well, to make way for agriculture, much of the forested zone has been cleared.

Tundra Stretching 4,349 miles (7,000 km) from west to east, the Russian Arctic is a vast treeless and marshy plain, and is well-known for its white nights (dusk after midnight, and dawn fairly soon after) through summer and days of near total darkness through winter.

Federal Subjects Map of Russia

Administrative Map of Russia showing its major administrative divisions.

Russia has 46 provinces (oblasti, singular - oblast), 21 republics (respubliki, singular - respublika), 4 autonomous okrugs (avtonomnyye okrugi, singular - avtonomnyy okrug), 9 krays (kraya, singular - kray), 2 federal cities (goroda, singular - gorod), and 1 autonomous oblast (avtonomnaya oblast')

The oblasts are:  Amur (Blagoveshchensk), Arkhangel'sk, Astrakhan', Belgorod, Bryansk, Chelyabinsk, Irkutsk, Ivanovo, Kaliningrad, Kaluga, Kemerovo, Kirov, Kostroma, Kurgan, Kursk, Leningrad, Lipetsk, Magadan, Moscow, Murmansk, Nizhniy Novgorod, Novgorod, Novosibirsk, Omsk, Orenburg, Orel, Penza, Pskov, Rostov, Ryazan', Sakhalin (Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk), Samara, Saratov, Smolensk, Sverdlovsk (Yekaterinburg), Tambov, Tomsk, Tula, Tver', Tyumen', Ul'yanovsk, Vladimir, Volgograd, Vologda, Voronezh, Yaroslavl';

The 21 republics are: Adygeya (Maykop), Altay (Gorno-Altaysk), Bashkortostan (Ufa), Buryatiya (Ulan-Ude), Chechnya (Groznyy), Chuvashiya (Cheboksary), Dagestan (Makhachkala), Ingushetiya (Magas), Kabardino-Balkariya (Nal'chik), Kalmykiya (Elista), Karachayevo-Cherkesiya (Cherkessk), Kareliya (Petrozavodsk), Khakasiya (Abakan), Komi (Syktyvkar), Mariy-El (Yoshkar-Ola), Mordoviya (Saransk), North Ossetia (Vladikavkaz), Sakha [Yakutiya] (Yakutsk), Tatarstan (Kazan'), Tyva (Kyzyl), Udmurtiya (Izhevsk);

What countries border Russia? These 14 share land with the world's biggest country.

travel map world map

Corrections & Clarifications: A previous version of this article misspelled NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg's name.

Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to double the troops stationed along its border with the Baltic states and Finland in preparation for a potential military conflict with NATO in the next decade, Estonia's Foreign Intelligence Service said Tuesday. 

Finland joined NATO last year, reinforcing the alliance’s eastern edge and borders. Sweden will likely join this year, according to comments made by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg earlier this year. Finland shares a border of nearly 900 miles with Russia. But even with the addition of Finland, only 11% of Russia borders NATO countries . Russia is the biggest country in the world .

Here's a list of the countries that make up the rest of the border.

What countries border Russia?

Fourteen countries border Russia. The sprawling country encompasses 10% of the total land on Earth. These countries share a border with Russia:

  • North Korea

Russia borders Poland and Lithuania via the Kaliningrad exclave on the Baltic Sea, its westernmost region that is detached from mainland Russia.

It also shares a maritime border with Japan, the subject of a decades-long feud involving a string of disputed islands called the " Kurils" by Russia and the "Northern Territories" by Japan. 

How close is the U.S. to Russia?

There are 55 miles between mainland Russia and mainland Alaska.

But when it comes to islands, there are only 2.5 miles between Russia's Big Diomede and the U.S.'s Little Diomede. This water freezes over in the winter, so “you could technically walk from the US to Russia on this seasonal sea ice,” the National Parks Service writes.

Can you travel to Russia?

Russia is currently under a Level 4 “Do Not Travel” advisory for U.S. travelers . The State Department cites safety concerns related to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, “arbitrary enforcement of local law,” limited flights in and out of Russia, U.S. credit and debit cards not working in the country, the U.S. Embassy’s limited ability to aid U.S. citizens and “the possibility of terrorism.”

The State Department also warns of the risk of wrongful detainment amid rising cases of Russian imprisonment. Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich is detained currently, becoming the first American reporter to be charged with espionage in Russia since 1986. He remains in prison awaiting trial after almost one year of wrongful detainment . Fellow American Paul Whelan also remains in prison after he was detained on espionage charges in 2018 and sentenced to 16 years. 

WNBA player Brittney Griner was wrongfully detained for almost 10 months after Russian prosecutors claimed to find 0.7 grams of hashish oil in vape cartridges in Griner’s luggage. She was released in December 2022. 

Other jailed Americans who do not have the State Department’s official designation of wrongful detainment “fear being left behind,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

interactive map shows world's most dangerous countries for tourists to visit in 2024

A n interactive map created by International SOS warns vacationers about the world's most dangerous countries to visit. These are places where tourists might face political unrest, crime, and other forms of violence.

The Risk Map also shows countries at risk due to climate change. Countries like Ukraine , Libya, Syria, and Iraq are marked as having an "extreme" security risk.

On a brighter note, the map also highlights the safest countries to visit, such as Greenland, Norway, Finland, Iceland, or Luxembourg.

"For the coming year, geopolitical tensions, unrest and political instability are expected to impact business operations. This is reflected in the map with the Sahel, parts of the Middle East and Ukraine in the 'high' or 'extreme' security risk category," said Sally Llewellyn, Global Security Director, at International SOS.

View the map here:

They added that International SOS continues to help organizations operating in these risky locations by providing verified information and advice on how such risks will affect their workforce or by supporting evacuations where needed.

If you can't see the map above, click here.

Most of Europe, the USA, China and Canada are among the safest places to travel, as reported by the Irish Star . On the other hand, countries like South Africa, Egypt, Algeria, Kenya, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Mexico, the Philippines, Iran, Turkey and Russia are seen as medium risk.

As conflicts change, so do risk ratings. This year, Lebanon, the Palestinian Territories, and Russia have all seen their risk ratings increase. Ecuador and parts of Colombia have also been bumped up the risk category due to political unrest.

On a brighter note, El Salvador and Nepal have had their ratings lowered after improvements in several risk factors.

Michael Rogers, Chief Security Analyst at International SOS, said: "The propensity for geo-political or socio-economic developments, natural hazards and other threats requires that travellers remain well informed and prepared for short-notice and sometimes high-impact disruptions."

He added: " Organisations should emphasise the importance of pre-travel risk assessment as well as situational awareness for travelling employees to navigate travel risks effectively."

"It is also crucial for organisations to have clear communication protocols in place for reporting security incidents and ensuring that prompt assistance is readily available when needed. In the event of a significant incident, clear, wide-reaching proactive communication from security management covering the organisation's response goes a long way toward appeasing anxieties and elucidating the next steps."

"By implementing proactive measures and fostering a culture of risk awareness, employers can empower their workforce to make informed decisions and enjoy a safe and healthy holiday season."
