There are many breathtaking sights scattered all over the planet, and it would take a lifetime to visit all of them. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of the most amazing sights in the world, so your eyes can enjoy the beauty of this world.
Northern Lights, Scandinavia
This amazing astronomical phenomenon is best seen in winter from northern Scandinavia. However, there are never guarantees, which makes the magic moment when they do appear way more exciting. Probably the best place to watch this phenomenon is from the coastal waters of western Norway, whose coves are free of any artificial light.
Sigiriya, Sri Lanka
The ancient fortress and former palace of Sigiriya, also known as Lions Rock, is the area surrounded by an extensive network of water tanks and gardens. With some of the oldest gardens around the globe, this place was abandoned in 1155 and rediscovered in 1828. It also features huge paintings, covering the complete wall of the fortress.
If robots had a heart, then this is probably what it would look like. This stunning piece of art has been designed by British architects Colin Fournier and Peter Cook. By day it looks like a multi-faceted art gallery. On the other side, by night it looks like a spaceship.
A few hundred miles south of Tokyo, in the Philippine sea is located the Aogashima Island. Resembling the island from Jurassic Park, this volcanic creation is an excellent place to relax and unwind on a virtually deserted island. You can reach this island by either helicopter or boat.
Mackenzie Basin, New Zealand
A 1,600-square-mile area in New Zealand’s Mackenzie basin has been designated as the world’s fourth International Dark Sky Reserve. In other words, this place is one of the best stargazing places on the planet.
Crooked Forest, Poland
Poland has a very interesting forest. The forest is made up entirely of crooked pine trees. All the pine trees are actually crooked in the same way. The entire forest is made up of even 400 trees, all of them are crooked in the same way. Theories abound as to what caused the odd bends. One of theories says that tanks rolled over the trees during the war.
Sight on the lake offers a romantic atmosphere and a unique landscape. This lake manages to capture all of this feeling in just one place.
Jungle pyramids, Mexico.
Mayan pyramids pervade the eastern side of the country. However, none are more breathtaking than the pyramids at Palenque in the far south. This site actually inspired several movies.
Taj Mahal, India
It is probably the most clichéd photo in the world, but tourists still gasp the moment they see one of the world’s most famous symbols of love. This place is best enjoyed at sunset, as there are not too many tourists around.
Lunar rainbow, Zambia
This rare natural phenomenon occurs only for three days around the full moon during high-water season in Zambia. The best rainbows tend to occur in July and August, and a great place to observe them is on the banks of the Zambezi river.
