Ten Most Amazing Places to Visit
The world is truly magnificent place; with hundreds of countries all with their own history, culture and sights, choosing a place to visit can truly be a hard thing to do. Whether you are looking for history, culture, religion, adventure, beach, there is always somewhere in the world that will appeal to you and make you fall in love with it.
One. The Acropolis, Athens, Greece.
The Acropolis is the icon of Classical Greece, a testament to the glory and history of this ancient country. The temple of Athene Nike is truly spectacular and overlooks Athen as a parent looking after her children.
Two. The Forbidden City, Beijing, China.
As the Acropolis is to Greeks, the Forbidden City is the icon and national treasure of China. For centuries it was forbidden for the majority of Chinese people to enter and today it still holds that sense of deep mystery and intrigue.
Three. The Terracotta Warriors, Xi’an, China.
Another Chinese sight, the Terracotta Warriors are perhaps one of the most fascinating relics archaeologists have ever laid their eyes on. Found in the 1970s, these clay warriors were constructed to guard the final resting place of the First Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huangdi.
Four. Stonehenge, Wiltshire, United Kingdom.
Stonehenge is one of those iconic places you just have to visit. It is a monument to the ingenuity of the Bronze Age people living in Britain. Archaeologists do not know how they were built. Believed to be a religious icon, druids still gather here on the Summer Solstice to pray and give thanks to their gods and nature.
Five. New York City, United States of America.
The Big Apple. The City that Never Sleeps. New York is a place where millions of people flock to each year, visiting Times Square, Madison Square Gardens, the Empire State Building and other places in droves.
Six. The Eiffel Tower, Paris, France.
The Eiffel Tower is perhaps one of the most romantic places in the entire world. Travel to the very top and look out at the stars and the city in lights are night whilst sipping on a glass of wine and giving a kiss to your loved one.
Seven. The Venetian canals, Venice, Italy.
The Venetian Canals may be a little smelly, but cruising down them whilst being rowed by a serenading moustached Italian with your arm around your loved one is divinely romantic, especially at night when the stars are shining.
Eight. Cruising the Nile, Egypt.
Cruising along the Nile River is the best way to explore the magnificence of ancient Egypt, a land which has enthralled millions throughout the world. Travelling down it gives you the chance to see some stunning scenery and to visit many attractions which will leave you in awe.
Nine. The Coliseum, Rome, Italy.
The Coliseum is perhaps the first thing people think of when imaging ancient Rome. Visit the place where gladiators fought each other for the enjoyment of the emperor and imagine yourself in their shoes (or sandals).
Ten. Mount Fuji, Japan.
Mount Fuji is one of the most popular places in the world to visit. Full of stunning natural beauty and impressive views, it is truly a memorable place to visit.
This is by no means a complete list of the world’s most amazing places to visit; travel the world yourself and see the incredible place for what it is.
