Top 10 Places to Visit Before You Die
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do”. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
There’s an entire awe-inspiring world out there to see and experience. Rather than stay home and dream of what might have been, unearth that passport and get going.
To get you started in the right direction, we’ve whittled down a “bucket list” of 10 of the world’s most magnificent wonders.
1. Zhangye Danxia landform in Gansu, China
The rainbow formation is the result of red sandstone and mineral deposits being laid down for over 24 million years, according to theTelegraph.
2. The swing at the “End of the World” in Baños, Ecuador
At the edge of Ecuador sits a rickety tree house (casa del árbol) overlooking an active volcano in the near distance. With it comes a swing with no harnesses, inviting only the bravest of risk-takers to experience a killer view.
3. The Great Blue Hole in Belize
The Great Blue Hole is a submarine sinkhole off the coast of Belize. It’s one of the top scuba diving sites in the world and the water is more than 400 feet deep.
4. Tulip fields in the Netherlands
Many people often mistake Keukenhof, also known as the Garden of Europe, as the designated space of the tulip fields. However, these majestic fields are located just outside the garden and are mostly privately owned.
5. Sea of Stars on Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives
What may appear as a mirror image of the stars above, the bioluminescence in the water is actually due to marine microbes called phytoplankton. The effect it has on the shore is absolutely breathtaking.
6. Victoria Falls bordering Zimbabwe and Zambia in Africa
This 354-foot waterfall lies at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe and it is the widest waterfall in Africa. There’s also a famous feature on the Zambian side called the Devil’s Pool, which allows adventurous tourists to hang out at the edge of the falls.
7. Trolltunga in Hordaland, Norway
Trolltunga is a piece of rock that hangs out of the mountain about 2,000 feet up in the air. The Troll’s Tongue (translation in English) is available to hikers from mid-June to about mid-September.
8. Whitehaven Beach at Whitsunday Island in Australia
This beach is known for its beautiful white sands and the crystal clear blues and greens of the water. The sand is very fine and walks along the shore are so fantastical it seems like magic.
9. Antelope Canyon in Arizona, United States
Located near Page, Ariz., this brilliant slot canyon is split into two different sections, commonly referred to as “The Crack” and “The Corkscrew.”
10. Haiku Stairs of Oahu in Hawaii, United States
Stairway to Heaven is a steep hiking trail that is technically closed to the public, but many people continue to climb despite “No Trespassing” signs.
“So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
