Travel is all about seeing new things, having new experiences and giving you a sense of wonder about the world. That’s why everyone should make an effort to visit as many of the most beautiful, baffling, awe-inspiring places on this planet as possible.
With that in mind, here are a few of the most awe-inspiring places everyone should make an effort to see before they die…
The Great Barrier Reef, Australia
The Great Barrier Reef is truly a sight to behold. A collection of coral reefs – the world’s largest in fact – it spans a mind-blowing 1,400 miles and is one of the seven wonders of the world. Spending time there, diving and checking out not only the reefs but th3e amazingly exotic marine life that lives there will definitely give you a sense of awe.
The Pyramids of Giza, Egypt
Whether you explore Egypt with On the Go Tours or you plan a solo trip of the area, one of the things you absolutely must take the time to do if you’re lucky enough to be in Egypt is see the Pyramids of Giza. Thought to have been constructed in 2,560 BC, they are a wonderful testament to the human spirit and what we can achieve if we put our minds to it. You’ll be as baffled as to how their construction was possible as you will be blown away by their size and stature in the landscape.
The Great Wall of China, China
The Great Wall of China is a humungous man-made structure that stretches along thousands of miles of Chinese landscapes. Totally jaw-dropping, not just because of it’s sheer size, but also because of the brilliant mountain views. You won’t regret travelling to see it, although you’ll probably want to stick to seeing a small section! It’s amazing it was ever constructed at all!
Stonehenge is one of the world’s most mysterious attractions and one of the places you simply must-see when you’re in England. Associated with ancient pagan religions, these 25-ton rocks, formed into a stone circle, are best experienced during sunset or sunrise when the sun hits them just right and you can understand why they were so revered by our ancient ancestors.
Easter Island, Chile
Easter Island is not only a beautiful place in its own right, with plenty of potential for hiking its rugged landscapes and scuba diving in its crystal clear waters, but it is also very well known for its some 887 moai statues which are as baffling as they are beautiful, A real mystery, no one knows why the statues were constructed, but you can have a lot of fun speculating as you tour them.
Redwood National Park, California, USA
With over 1333,000 acres of wonderful nature, including some of the biggest redwood trees on the planet, it’s easy to get lost in the beauty of Redwood National Park – just make sure you don’t actually get lost!
Visiting any of these places in your life will enrich your life, but if you can visit them all, you truly will appreciate the wonder that is this world.
