4- Petra, Jordan
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 lagoon culture, which provides the town with specialty seafood, only adds to the city’s allure.
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.
11- Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland
Nothing says charming mountain village like Lauterbrunnen. Quaint quiet and quintessentially Swiss, Lauterbrunnen is one of the most picturesque places in the world. Dotted with perfect chalet-style houses scattered over verdant green fields, the entire area feels like something from the Sound of Music. Serene village life isn’t all it has going for it either. The scenery is to die for and even sports the nickname ‘Valley of 72 Waterfalls’ so no wonder it’s one of the most beautiful places in Europe and the world.
12- The Amazon rainforest – South America
Deep green and full of life: these are the key facts of the Amazon rainforest. There is probably no other jungle in the world that is so impressive. For good reason, the Amazon is also called “the green lung of the earth”. Wander through the jungle to the most
13- Trolltunga, Norway
Soaring 700 meters above Lake Ringedalsvatnet is one of the world’s most scenic and beautiful places in the world, Trolltunga.

16- Niagara Falls, Canada
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.

18- Northern lights, Norway
While it’s possible to witness the completely crazy phenomenon known as the aurora borealis from any number of locations positioned far enough north, we’re picking Norway as the bucket-list destination. Why? Because it’s Norway. There are fjords, islands, glaciers, whales, moose, and polar bears!
But also because Norway just so happens to be a particularly wonderful spot to see the magical light show that occurs when highly charged electrons from the solar wind meet up with elements in the Earth’s atmosphere along the lines of the magnetic force of the planet’s core (in a nutshell). From the land of the Vikings, you can see some of the strangest and most splendid antics the sky has to offer.
19- Palawan, Philippines
This immaculate string of islands is seen as some of the best in the world and it’s pretty obvious why.
