We can be certain that most of these destinations that we are going to cover with you have a familiar ring. We are here to bring these amazing places up to you again in hopes of sparking interest in finding the right time out of your schedules to go. We hope that you are inspired to see these wonders of the world as much as we are!!
We chose this archipelago to be brought up first because of how remarkable they are; plain and simple. These are a collection of volcano islands that fall on both sides of the equator and are widely known for being extensively studied by Charles Darwin. Darwin’s studies brought about his theory of evolution through natural selection and that’s just one main reason why this archipelago must be witnessed. The second reason why this should be close to the top of you list is the fact that this has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978 (That’s over 40 years…). Now that we have proposed good enough reasons to visit, we should also mention the vast wildlife and plants that resides here, both with over 500 species. One of the infamous species that live on these islands are the Galapagos giant tortoise, which are the largest living turtles on the planet and weighing up to 90 pounds. Ready to see something you’ve never seen before? Please choose this as your first place to go. You will not be disappointed.
Angkor Wat deserves to be identified alone when visiting Cambodia because of how insanely intricate and massive this monument is. This 12th century temple was first established as a Hindu worship place for god Vishnu under the Khmer Empire but by the end of the 12th century, the practice changed to Buddhist. On top of how important this temple is to Cambodia, they have even have represented Angkor Wat on their own country’s flag. Since the 1990s, tourism has risen from 7,500 visitors to over 2 million by 2013 per year and those numbers haven’t begun to slow down. We believe that having an open mind when it comes to religious practices has only benefited our lives because of how inspiring it is to learn how others live today and how the past have impacted them. Visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site next on your journey!!
Now this national park is one that you’d really be missing out on if you didn’t take the time to go. This massive canyon found in northern Arizona has been weathered down by the Colorado River that is about 277 miles (446 km) long, 18 miles (29 km) wide and 1 mile (1.61 km) deep. Also, the Grand Canyon is stated to be between 5-6 million years old…(how is that even possible). There are so many activities that you can choose from when you visit here from hiking, rafting, camping and more. Honestly, we think that the pictures speak for themselves in this case and our persuading skills are unnecessary because this place is insanely remarkable!!
We’re sure you’ve seen this wall already in movies or in pictures and we are certain that if you love traveling and seeing new things, then one of the New 7 Wonders of the World should be on your list. What was initially created for defense, this extravagant, 13,711 mile (21,196 km) long wall dates back to 220- 206 BC under the China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang. Other reasons why Huang decided to embark on creating this defense mechanism was to assist with the import and exports of the Silk Road trade routes. When you fly out to Beijing, you will realize that the Great Wall is only scraping the surface. There are 6 other UNESCO World Heritage Sites other than this one and those consist of the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace, Ming Tombs, Zhoukoudian and the Grand Canal. Excuse us, we are picking our jaws up off the floor because the architecture of all these structures are unbelievable. We could go on for days about how amazing this place is and we hope that this has narrowed down your choices for you next holiday!
Mbombela, formerly known as Nelspruit, is where you can explore in South African Safaris the infamous Big 5. The Big 5, the Buffalo, Elephants, Leopards, Lions, and Rhinos, can be spotted during an expedition of the Kruger National Park. This part of South Africa is the most diverse wildlife in all of Africa. If you have an African Safari written on your bucket list, make sure that you have this place in mind because this is where you come to see all of the amazing game that reside here and some of those species are exclusive to this part of Africa. We hope that one day you will be able to put on the safari outfit and explore some of the most beautiful parts of the world!!
Let’s start off by introducing the Great Barrier Reef as being the largest single structure made of living organisms that can viewed from outer space… What?! This immense coral reef system lies off of Queensland Australia and has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981. Apart from this amazing living structure itself, this coral reef is responsible for a vast amount of aquatic species from cetaceans(beluga whales, dolphins, narwhals, etc.), sea turtles, saltwater crocodiles and more. The Great Barrier Reef has slowly deteriorated due to various reasons of pollution and climate change and we can’t stress enough how concerned we are. If you are able to see the Reef before the damage gets any worse, we applaud you but if not, let us become more conscious of our everyday usage of waste to help make our oceans a more livable place for our ocean friends.
