I always have a question….why we live for? Then my answer was simple, to visit amazing places.There are so many places to see in the world, and lots of lists and books that describe them, and I am doing the best I can to see as many places as I can and learn about them.. Here i have brought you the list of 10 amazing places to visit where I hope in future to get to.
The Great Wall of China (China)
The Great Wall of China is so grand in its scale that it snakes its way through the People’s Republic, in various tangents, for more than 20,000 kilometers (12,425 miles). As UNESCO notes, “its historic and strategic importance is matched only by its architectural significance.” Construction began around 220 B.C. under Qin Shi Huang and continued all the way up to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), reflecting the military might and political strength of the central empires in ancient China. Though you’ll have to cast your preconceived notions of a single wall aside, each of the many barricades that make up The Great Wall of China have their own stories to tell, and each offer a fascinating look at dynastic China.
Venice Canals (Italy)
If there were a more romantic place on earth than the canals of Venice, surely we’d see that destination replicated in every casino the world over. But since there are arguably more faux canals and Roman statues in global casinos than anything else, it’s safe to say that the real Venice is the romantic winner. And why wouldn’t it be? Who doesn’t want to transport themselves into a gondola for a lazy ride around the “floating city” past its famed Gothic and Byzantine palazzos, bohemian shops and alluring cafes? This city is an engineering marvel, a marble masterpiece, and a sight that won’t be around forever.
Mount Fuji (Japan)
Japan’s tallest mountain – which, although dormant since 1707, remains classified as an active volcano – finally joined UNESCO’s prestigious World Heritage List in 2013 after decades mysteriously absent. Home to five major lakes, Shiraito Falls and eight Shinto shrines, adoration of this towering icon appears in the some of Japan’s earliest recorded literature when Fuji-san, as it is known locally, was said to puff clouds of smoke across Honshu. Today, it is one of Japan’s most visited attractions, with hundreds of thousands of tourists enduring the grueling climb to the top each year for a moment of peace and quiet as they look back out over Japan’s most populous island.
Stonehenge represents one of the most striking prehistoric megalithic monuments in the world on account of the sheer size of its megaliths and the sophistication of its concentric plan. Built sometime between 3,000 B.C. and 2,000 B.C., this ancient complex is today a spiritual site of pilgrimage in Neo-Druidry, as well as one of England’s most iconic attractions. Just what exactly prehistoric Britons built it for, however, remains one of archeology’s great mysteries. Was it a celestial timepiece? A sacrificial burial ground? The answer could be discovered any day now.
Taj Mahal (India)
If ever there was a more beautiful monument to love than India’s Taj Mahal, it has long since faded to dust. Mughal emperor Shah Jahan commissioned this immense marble-white mausoleum in memory of his beloved third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, in 1632. The resulting structure, designed by Afghan Ustad-Ahmad Lahori, has been called the jewel of Muslim art in India, an architectural masterpiece and one of the most romantic buildings in the world.
The Eiffel Tower (France)
When Gustave Eiffel announced that he would build the tallest tower in the world for the 1889 World’s Fair, he expected a euphoric response. What he got instead was skepticism, virulent criticism and even protests “on artistic grounds.” History, however, would prove his critics to be a pack of fools. The Eiffel Tower is now not only the world’s most-visited paid monument, but also its most valuable at $561.9 billion, according to a 2012 report, making it a crucial cog in the French economy and one of the most beloved sites in Europe.
Galapagos Islands (Ecuador)
Charles Darwin once called the Galapagos Islands “a little world within itself.” The famed naturalist would develop his theory of evolution by natural selection not long after his visit to these quixotic isles in 1835, and nearly two centuries later, it’s still possible to catch a glimpse of the very oddball creatures that amazed him so. The Galapagos is a melting pot of marine life thanks to its location at the confluence of three ocean currents. Above the crystalline waters, this 19-island archipelago is home to a cornucopia of colorful species, many endemic, including the pink iguana, blue-footed booby and giant green tortoise, which can live more than 170 years. That means that some of the giant tortoises wandering around the islands today may have been born around the time of Darwin’s visit.
Yellowstone National Park (USA)
It was the wild plains of buffalo, bears, wolves and elk and the extraordinary natural art gallery of geysers, hot springs and scorched, bubbling earth that spurred U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant to create the world’s first national park in March 1872 and name it Yellowstone. Conservation efforts here would be replicated the world over, while the name Yellowstone itself would conjure up images of America’s Wild West. Today, it remains one of the most fabled spots on the U.S. map, and a Mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, who gush over its flora, fauna and geothermal unpredictability.
Bora Bora (French Polynesia)
Bora Bora may as well be shorthand for paradise. It’s the Ferrari of exotic locales, dripping with luxury and dotted with glass-bottomed bungalows that boast endless vistas of aquamarine sea and jagged volcanic peaks. Of course, this is a dream that comes with a hefty price tag, but the location of this Society Island of French Polynesia, smack dab in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean, ensures that you leave all your struggles and your cares thousands of miles away.
The Colosseum (Italy)
Though completed in 80 A.D., Rome’s Colosseum remains the world’s largest amphitheater nearly 2,000 years later, and a towering testament to the technological prowess of the Roman Empire. Its walls have seen both heroic and barbaric acts, including violent bouts of gladiatorial combat and thousands of slaughtered animals. The structure today, however, is known less for its bloody “sports” and more for its giddy, camera-toting tourists.
As a conclusion, these are the most wonderful places in the world, which I intent to visit and I hope to fulfill my dream before I die. I really hope you enjoy the article and see you soon.
