There are many beautiful places on this earth that you should visit. Whether you are a nature lover and enjoy outdoor activities, you prefer to indulge in a museum, or you want to experience the special atmosphere in an unknown country. But, with so many places to visit, where do you start? Where are the most beautiful places in the world to visit? To make your vacation planning a little easier, here are some of the most beautiful places in the world for you.
1- Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The city of Dubai may not be a natural wonder, but its grandeur is a sight to behold. Dubai is known for housing the tallest building in the world and is home to stunning beaches that draw visitors in droves. Dubai also boasts a diverse culture (immigrants make up a high percentage of the population), providing a unique atmosphere for this cosmopolitan city.
2- Paris, France
Paris is one of the most dreamy places on the planet not just for its world-class cuisine and museums, but for its charm. Anyone who has ever visited the City of Lights knows that there’s just something about it. Maybe it’s the pastel-colored streets leading to Montemarte’s Sacré-Cœur or the Eiffel Tower and Champ de Mars at sunset. Without a doubt, Paris has been and probably always will be one of the most admired places on Earth.
3- The pyramids of Giza – Egypt
If there is a historic place in the world to visit, then it is Egypt! Such as the unparalleled history of the pharaohs, the huge pyramids in the desert, and the towering capital of Cairo. We recommend that you do not miss all this during your holiday in Egypt. The famous Pyramids of Giza, which consist of a total of 6 pieces, are among the oldest buildings in the world. You will be enchanted!
4- Petra, Jordan
Petra’s beauty is so captivating that it was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Jordan’s spellbinding landscape is made up of ancient caves that were carved into the mountains by the Nabataean Arabs. The stonework is so intricate that facades resemble actual buildings, even though the realistic architecture dates back to the first century A.D.
5- The Colosseum – Italy
You can visit countless attractions in the Italian capital, Rome, but do not miss the opportunity to visit the unique Colosseum. The huge arena hosted the gladiatorial battles of the ruling Emperor. An exciting experience!
6- Taj Mahal – India
The Taj Mahal is probably the most glamorous tomb in the world and the most visited attraction in India. We also know why, because this place is more than impressive! The symmetrical white marble building stands out from the azure blue sky. If you are in India, a visit to the city of Agra is a must.
7- Positano, Italy
Positano, Italy, is commonly considered the jewel of the Amalfi Coast thanks to its sky-high cliffs, charming streets, and spectacular beachfront. Travelers flock here to enjoy the fresh local cuisine and explore the gorgeous coastline either by boat, via car, or on foot along its many scenic hiking trails.
8- Venice, Italy
Sleepy gondolas meandering their way through the shimmering turquoise waters of the ancient Italian city’s 150 canals are just one of Venice’s gold stars. This 1200-year-old city is certainly the picture of beauty all around the globe for its vibrant art and celebrated architecture. The lagoon culture, which provides the town with specialty seafood, only adds to the city’s allure.
Cappadocia, an area in Turkey where entire cities have been carved into the rock, is pretty incredible on its own. But whenever hot-air balloons pepper the sky, its beauty level literally skyrockets.
10- The Maldives
Like one of Mother Nature’s emoticons, this lovable heart-shaped island can be found in the Republic of the Maldives, a country that is spread out over 35,000 square miles in the Indian Ocean, 250 miles southwest of India. The nation is comprised of 1,190 coral islands formed around 26 natural atolls, each of which is made of a coral reef circling a lagoon. While the Maldives is one the world’s most geographically dispersed countries, it is the smallest Asian country in both land area and population; only 200 of those islands are populated. Hello, deserted island paradise.
Niagara Falls are some of the largest, most beautiful, and most famous waterfalls in the world. They are also some of the most easily accessible. You can walk up and stand on the very edge of the falls, separated only by a railing, without even having to pay a fee.
If you want to see them from a little different perspective, you can take a boat trip to the base of the falls, or go behind the falls and see the water pouring over from above.
The falls consist of three parts: The most spectacular section is the concave Horseshoe Falls, running 640 meters across from the Canadian shore to the American shore. The American Falls, about 330 meters across, is on the New York side, but the best views are from the Canadian side. A small third section, known as Bridal Veil Falls, is located between these two.
On the Canadian side of the falls, a walkway stretches from above the falls all the way along the edge of the gorge, providing spectacular views. At night, the falls are lit up in different colors.
The main viewing area is on the edge of Horseshoe Falls, behind which is the Table Rock Welcome Centre. This building has a restaurant overlooking the falls and is also where you’ll find shops and an information and ticket booth where you can purchase tickets to the various attractions and tours.
Below the falls, the Niagara River flows through the deep walls of the gorge, between 80 meters and 300 meters across, forming the Whirlpool Rapids as the gorge narrows. The waters eventually flow into Lake Ontario.
