1. The Amazon Rainforest in South Africa
The world’s most developed rainforest in the entire world makes our list simply because of it’s gorgeous views and wondrous wildlife.
2. Mendenhall Ice Caves in Juneau, Alaska
These caves are located within a 12-mile stretch of glacier and only exist because said glacier is melting. Be warned: the caves are melting – so if you do visit, take caution!
3. Tulip Fields in the Netherlands
Although these fields are privately owned, visitors flock to the scenic area to bask in the gorgeous colors and aromas.
4. “Sea of Stars” Vaadhoo Island, Maldives
Although it may look like the stars are reflecting on the water, this illusion is actually caused by marine microbes called phytoplankton. The outcome is absolutely amazing.
5. The Blue Lagoon in Reykjavík, Iceland
This hot spring in Iceland is one of the most visited attractions in the area. Located in a lava spring, the water has a therapeutic, spa-like quality.
6. Abraham Lake in Alberta, Canada
Bubbles in the man-made lake become trapped and frozen under a thick layer of ice creating a glass type feel to the frozen lake.
7. Stonehedge, England
One of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is the remains of a ring of massive standing stones. Archaeologists believe it was built anywhere from 3000 BC to 2000 BC. Shrouded in mystery of how the stones were set upright at such a time, historians believe it could have been a burial ground. It has historically been a site with high religious significance for the druids.
8. The Faroe Islands in The North Atlantic Ocean
Located halfway between Norway and Iceland and with just over 50,000 people, the Faroe Islands have been voted the best island destination in the world.
9. Mont-Saint Michel in Normandy, France
This small island in the north of France is topped with the Mont-Saint Michel castle. The castle is rumored to have been an inspiration for the movie portrayal of Hogwarts in the Harry Potter franchise.
10. Easter Island Statues in Rapa Nui, Chile
These human figures were carved by Rapa Nui people between the years of 1250 and 1500. The statues stand up to 33 feet tall.
