Keukenhof Park: the Netherlands
The Netherlands is known worldwide for its rainbow fields of tulips, especially those in Keukenhof. Millions of bulbs are planted here every year - the best time to visit is mid-April when the flowers are in full bloom.
Cappadocia is a Turkish area where entire cities have been carved out of rock, which is already remarkable. And when the sky is filled with flying balloons, the level of beauty of this place reaches the clouds.
Arashiyama: Kyoto, Japan
The tranquil beauty of the bamboo forest in Arashiyama District is a wonderful sight.
Salar de Uyuni: Daniel Campos province, Bolivia
The reflective surface of the world's largest salt mine is as if taken vividly from Salvador Dali's imagination - fortunately, it exists in the real world.
Bryce Canyon: Bryce, Utah
The layered red and orange rock pillars of Bryce Canyon, known as hoodoos, make this place a must-see destination for all campers and photography enthusiasts.
Mù Cang Chải: Vietnam
Mù Cang Chải is one of the most breathtaking places in Vietnam, where you can see terraced rice paddies perched on mountainous landscapes.
Iceland's largest glacier is also one of the most beautiful sights you can see in the country. The landscape beneath its surface looks like a completely different world, filled with ice caves, canyons, and volcanoes.
Pyramids of Giza: El Giza, Egypt
The three great pyramids of Giza are mysterious architectural wonders. We may never know whether they were built by humans or mutants.
The lush landscape of the Okavango Delta is like a true Eden, where cheetahs, zebras, buffalo, and rhinos live freely in the wild.
Namib Desert: Namibia
Red sand dunes and skeletal trees make Namibia the place most similar in appearance to Mars. The Namib Desert was also the set of the movie "Mad Max: On the Road of Wrath."
Cliffs of Moher: Ireland
Also known as the Cliffs of Madness from the movie "Bride for the Prince," this coastal wonder is located near Galway city.
Benagil Cave Beach: Algarve, Portugal
Portugal's southern coast has beautiful beaches and caves, including the Benagil Cave beach.
Ashikaga flower park: Ashikaga, Japan
The Glycine trees in Ashikaga bloom beautifully for several weeks at the beginning of each spring, adorning the park with pastel shades of pink and purple.
Paro Taktsang: Bhutan
Paro Taktsang Monastery, also known as "Tiger's Nest," stands over a cliff more than 3 kilometres off the ground. If the temple's intricate building complex alone isn't enough to thrill you, the views of the Paro Valley will certainly provide that.
Kolukkumalai Teahouse: Munnar, India
Located almost 2.5 kilometres above sea level, Kolukkumalai is the highest tea house in the world and also the most beautiful. It would be wonderful to sip tea like this from your favourite mug.
The Great Blue Hole: Belize
Known for its round shape and strikingly dark blue colour, the Great Blue Hole is a depression about 130 meters in diameter, lying in the middle of Belize's coral reef. While a bird's-eye photo will convince anyone of its beauty divers to have the opportunity to see the greatest wonders hiding in the depths - massive limestone stalactites and stalagmites formed during the last glacial period.
Of all the amazing cities in Italy, Venice's sunlit canals have the most charm.
Halong Bay: Vietnam
Halong Bay, located in northeastern Vietnam, is prized for its blue waters and a series of limestone islands covered with tropical vegetation and wildlife.
Moravian Fields: Czech Republic
It would seem that the landscapes of the Moravian Fields were created by the brushstrokes of a brilliant oil painter, but these pastel hills are as accurate as can be.
Nā Pali Coast: Kauai, Hawaii
Kauai boasts some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, but it takes some work to admire them. Nā Pali can only be viewed from a helicopter, catamaran, or after a gruelling walk.
Serengeti National Park: Tanzania
The Tanzanian part of Serengeti Park is the perfect place for an African adventure.
Lavender Fields: Provence, France
Seemingly endless fields of lavender make Provence one of France's most beautiful (and fragrant) places.
Fernando de Noronha: Brazil
This archipelago off Brazil's northeastern coast consists of 21 islands with some of the best beaches and most beautiful scenery. Waterfalls, high cliffs, areas covered with white sand, and (possibly the best feature) a limited number of tourists.
Watching the aurora borealis in Sweden, or the glaciers on the coast of Greenland, the Arctic Circle, always seems like a hidden paradise.
Machu Picchu: Peru
The panoramic views of Machu Picchu and the winding (and mysterious) stone walls are a great testament to the site's worldwide fame.
Grand Canyon: Arizona, United States
There's a good reason why more than 5 million people visit the Grand Canyon every year: it's one of the world's seven natural wonders, far more accessible than Mount Everest or the Great Barrier Reef.
It may not be the first place one thinks of when planning a vacation abroad. Still, Samarkand stands out for the intricate patterns covering the buildings and the colourfully dressed local population. It also has a rich history, being the final stop of the Silk Road.
Glowworm Caves: Waitomo, New Zealand
In New Zealand, even the bugs are beautiful. The Waitomo caves are home to thousands of glowworms, leaving long trails of mucus behind them (sounds gross, looks phenomenal) and lighting up the caves, which thus look like an underground Milky Way.
Pamukkale: Denizli, Turkey
Pamukkale's storied pools are usually surrounded by snow and frozen waterfalls, but the water in them is warm and accessible to swimming enthusiasts. This is quite different from hotel pools.
Valle de Cocora: Quindío, Colombia
If anyone was wondering where to find the tallest palm trees (Palma de Cera), you need to look no further. These limber trees look even more phenomenal against misty hills and pointy mountains.
Oia: Santorini, Greece
Santorini is officially recognized as one of the best islands in the world - and one of the most charming. In particular, the small village of Oia is charming, resplendent with white buildings with bright blue roofs.
The ancient city of Petra is known for its buildings carved directly into the cliff faces, but its accurate claim to fame is the (fictional) seat of the Holy Grail.
Lake Bled: Slovenia
Viewing its emerald green surface in summer or snow-covered against the backdrop of the Julian Alps in winter, there is no denying the pictorial beauty of this popular destination.
Isle of Skye: Scotland
Its bodies of water and green hills make the Isle of Skye a place where dreams and dreams are born.
Namaqualand: South Africa
Although Namaqualand remains a barren land for most of the year, it comes to life briefly each year with the arrival of spring. During this period, the area is covered with orange and white daisies and other rainbow flowers, making the place a temporary tourist attraction.
Great Wall of China: Beijing, China
It's more than 19.3 kilometres long, thousands of years old and can be seen from space - no wonder the Great Wall is on this list.
Bagan (formerly Pagan): Myanmar
The ancient city of Bagan against the sky is a sight unlike anything in the world, from the ochre-covered stupa buildings to the temples towering over the surrounding forests.
Redwood National Park: California
Being in the middle of California's Redwood National Park is a humbling experience, especially looking up at the 2,000-year-old, nearly 100-foot-tall giants of nature.
Great Barrier Reef and Whitehaven Beach: Queensland, Australia
Although the largest living thing on Earth can be seen from space, the best vantage point is for divers, who come to this place every year. And when it's necessary to go ashore, it's best to do so at Whitehaven Beach, often described as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Uluru: Australia's Northern Territory
No matter how you view the 700-million-year-old Uluru (or Ayers Rock mountain) - from the air sitting in a balloon, in the desert riding a motorcycle, or on a walk at its base during sunset - admiring its majesty is a must for any traveller.
Milford Bay: New Zealand
New Zealand is full of breathtaking sights, such as Milford's Bay, a mountainous fjord where you can reenact your favourite scenes from Lord of the Rings.
Wulingyuan: Zhangjiajie, China
Picturesque is an understatement. Measuring more than 160 square kilometres, the attraction is home to thousands of sandstone pillars, the natural equivalent of skyscrapers - some even taller than half the height of the Empire State Building.
Denali (formerly Mount McKinley): Alaska
Despite the controversy over its name and dwindling size, Denali's beauty is worth admiring, even battling the low temperatures.
Angkor Wat: Siem Reap, Cambodia
Despite the potential crowding, some popular tourist attractions are worth a visit, and Angkor Wat is at the top of that list. No matter how many Asian temples one has already seen, this one will always be the largest and most magnificent.
Torngat Mountains National Park: Labrador, Canada
This is certainly one of the most beautiful places in Canada. The isolated Torngat Mountains National Park is a land of polar bears and caribou, glaciers and fjords, and mountain ranges that are hard to forget.
With its gentle coastlines and captivating sunsets, Boracay has been given the title of the most beautiful island in the world.
Socotra looks like part of some distant planet. The cosmic-looking Dragon Trees (Dracaena cinnabari) are the hallmark of this island.
Bromo Volcano: East Java, Indonesia
Mount Bromo is probably the most famous volcano in East Java's Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, thanks to its easy access and incredible views during sunrise.
Torres del Paine National Park: Patagonia, Chile
Torres del Paine is like a microcosm, containing everything that makes Patagonia a spectacular place: sky-high mountains, blue glaciers, and mythical lakes.
Kurile Islands: Russia and Japan
Stretching from the northeastern tip of Japan to the tip of Kamchatka, the chain of 56 islands has hot springs, dozens of active volcanoes, and a variety of environments, from high-altitude tundras to lush grasslands.
