No matter where you go, there are always wonderful things to see and experience. Maybe you prefer some type of landscape like mountains, sea, forests or lake. Or maybe you want to get in touch with nature by camping out under the stars or by hiking through a forest? Some of the world’s most beautiful places are well known, like New Zealand or Switzerland. You might also want to visit a developing country where you can experience different cultures and traditions first hand. However, there are other extraordinary places that not many people know about. For example, Costa Rica has one of the highest levels of biodiversity in the world – about 25% of all animals are endemic.
Costa Rica also has many volcanoes, the highest being Irazu at 3,402 meters above sea level. The island of St Lucia is one of the most beautiful places in the world too. It has three intertwined lakes and is part of a large marine reserve called the West Coast Region. If you are looking for a more modern place, make sure to visit Dubai – it has grown from a small village to a city with architectural masterpieces and buildings that resemble ancient landmarks. A trip around the world offers you many opportunities to discover beautiful places. For instance, during your stay in Paris, take time out to visit Versailles – its gilt and crystal chandeliers in the Hall of Mirrors and blue and green colors will leave you breathless.
If you are interested in sports, make sure to visit places like Rio de Janeiro or Cape Town. You can also go on a cruise to the Galapagos Islands where you might be lucky enough to spot whales and dolphins close by. If you like to travel light, make sure to pack your swimsuit and go swimming in the Caribbean. If it’s wintertime, don’t forget your snow boots when visiting Canada or parts of Russia. During your stay in Moscow, visit St Basil’s Cathedral which is an architectural masterpiece with its colorful domes and delicate spires. If you are interested in culture, don’t miss out on visiting places like Beijing or Athens. The New Acropolis Museum is an architectural jewel featuring stunning marble statues of the Greek gods and goddesses. Knowing that there are so many beautiful places in the world, it feels a bit strange at times that not everyone appreciates them as we do. But we can all work together to keep places like this pristine and unspoiled so that future generations can also enjoy them and be inspired by their beauty.
