Those breathtaking travel photos on Instagram or Pinterest makes you fantasize about visiting, even in these travel-restrictive times, right?
But if you ask what are the most unbelievably beautiful places in the world, depending on the person you ask, the answers could be wildly different.
So, let Ibiene through this curated list, take you through some of the top 10 unbelievable places in the world.
Antelope Canyon, Arizona:
Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon in Southwest America. Its tribal name –“Navajo” translates to “the place where water runs through rocks”—an allusion to the canyon’s creation through erosion. The narrow, undulating spaces between rock formations allow for vivid patterns when sunlight filters through the jagged stone.
Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, Japan:
Every traveller who passes through this ethereal glow and seemingly endless heights of this bamboo grove on the outskirts of Kyoto, always have a beautiful story to tell afterwards. Visitors say, the experience extends beyond the visual because in 1996, Japan’s Ministry of the Environment included the sounds here such as wood creaking, leaves rustling. In fact, this destination is as one of the top 100 Soundscapes of Japan.
Cappadocia is an area in Turkey where entire cities have been carved into rock. This location is pretty incredible on its own. Visitors take a peek at this location in hot-air balloons and these two put together, is breath-taking.
Disko Bay, Greenland:
Greenland is an icy, mysterious destination, and one of the most naturally beautiful places on the planet. One of the main attractions, Disko Bay perfectly illustrates the untouched allure of the island with its impressive icebergs, charming coastal settlements, and common sightings of breaching humpback whales.
Niagara Falls, Canada:
Canada’s Niagara Falls is famous for its beauty. The towering falls, which is a collection of three waterfalls, is amazing to view from both above and below.
Boulders Beach, South Africa:
Boulders Beach shows off Cape Town’s famously beautiful landscapes, with bright blue water, granite boulders, and penguins! Located on the False Bay Coastline, about 17 miles south of Table Mountain, many visitors swim here just a few feet away from the adorable penguin community.
Galápagos Islands, Ecuador:
This is definitely an incredible site. It’s dinosaur-like giant tortoises lumbers through the tall grass and real-life blue-footed boobies. Tourists encourage that a cruise is definitely the preferred way to explore the islands.
This impressive desert oasis was built in the 1930s around an existing watering hole. Peru, is also home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu and a brilliant holiday destination!
The Door to Hell, Turkmenistan:
Don’t get scared. The ‘Door to Hell’ actually is a good description for this burning pool of lava in Turkmenistan’s Karakum. This hole-ish desert looks just how you’d expect a gateway to the underworld to look: red and hot and steamy with lava.
Marble Caves, Patagonia:
One of Patagonia’s most surreal sites is found at the centre of General Carrera Lake, also known as Lake Buenos Aires. This is where you find the Marble Caves, the Marble Cathedral and Marble Chapel, named so for their domed ceilings and reverential atmosphere. Only accessible by boat this must-visit destination is closed off from most of the world.
