10 Beautiful Places In The World

These are some of really beautiful places on our planet. Planet Earth is not such a bad place to be, after all. These amazing and breathtaking places should not be missed if you find yourself in some of these countries. I am sure this will be something to keep you going, if nothing till you come back again.

1. Lord Howe Island, Australia

Located two hours off the coast of Sydney, Lord Howe Island is not only remote geographically, but no more than 400 people are allowed to visit it at any given time.

2. Antelope Canyon, Arizona

The canyon was created over thousands of years of rivers and streams eroding the sandstone, and the experience of walking through miles of them would be pretty mind-blowing.

3. Glen Coe, Scotland

“Glen Coe” is located in the Scottish Highlands, and is not only considered among one of the most beautiful places in Scotland, but Europe as a whole.

4. Pamukkale, Turkey

Translated into English, “pamukkale” means “cotton castle” in Turkish, which seems legit, considering that it looks like a giant pile of cotton balls.

5. Namaqualand, South Africa

Namaqualand looks like most of the region—arid and dry—but in spring it effloresces into something completely mesmerizing. Hundreds of thousands of daisies bloom transforming this place into something magical.

6. Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia

Plitvice is the oldest national park in Southeast Europe, the largest in Croatia, and most noticeably, it doesn’t look like anything out of Europe, much less Croatia.

7. Banaue Rice Terraces, Philippines

Not only were all these amazing terraces built by hand, but they are more than 2000 years old and cover over 4000 square miles.

8. Sognefjord, Norway

Though Norway contains the largest number of fjords in the world, Sognefjord is the largest (and second-largest in the world), and probably most beautiful as well.

9. Wulingyuan, China

Located in Hunan Province, China, Wulingyuan is known for its approximately 3100 naturally created, towering sandstone pillars.

10. Gullfoss, Iceland

Though Iceland is known for many of its waterfalls, none is perhaps as beautiful as Gullfoss, located on the White River (“Hvítá”). Translated from Icelandic, its name means “Golden Falls.”
