Metric and Imperial equivalents Attractions & Activities - The Best Holiday Destinations for 2020

This article is a travel topic.

Most countries in the world now use the metric system. Almost the only holdouts still using the old British Imperial system of weights and measures are the USA and Liberia (and Burma which uses yet another system). The United Kingdom and Canada (except the already fully metrified francophone Quebec) are in a curious state halfway between metric and Imperial units, and while many things are measured in metric, you will still often encounter miles, pints, feet and stone during your visit. The only units the two systems have in common are time units from second to century.

We use "=" signs below, but all are approximate.
