Thinking of traveling this year? Skip over the usual destinations and make your trip incredible by visiting at least one of these beautiful and awe-inspiring places.
1. Garden of Cosmic Speculation, Scotland
Straight out of Alice in Wonderland, this is the type of garden where you wouldn't be surprised to see some real gnomes running around.
2. Wisteria Flower Tunnel, Japan
Beautiful though it may be, those with terrible allergies may find this to be their worst nightmare come to life.
3. Mount Roraima, Venezuela
This incredible mountain holds a special place in the hearts of the indigenous people in the region. It has long been believed that the mountain is the stump of a mighty tree that once held all of the fruits and tuberous vegetables in the world. That is, until the culture trickster brought it crashing to the ground.
4. The Tunnel of Love, Ukraine
Solely judging from the photo, the tunnel seems to be appropriately named, as it seems impossible that anyone could walk through the beautiful construct and not feel some infatuation.
5. Naica Mine, Mexico
Maybe Kal-El doesn't live here (as far as they know), but this incredible mine looks like its torn right from the pages of a Superman comic.
6. Rock Spires, Zhangjiajie, China
All we need now are some giant, blue, cat-like people and we are in business for Avatar 2.
7. Son Doong Cave, Vietnam
It's a bit like Where's Waldo, only when you find the person in this picture, it will get a whole lot more impressive. If there was one place where you might just find Genie's lamp, this would be it.
8. Lake Hillier, Australia
Although it may look like hundreds of lifetime supplies of Pepto-Bismol, the pink effect is actually caused by some bacteria in the water.
9. Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany
Sure the castles in Disneyland and Disney World are great, but even Belle would be jealous of this setup.
10. Mendenhall Ice Caves, Alaska, United States
Alright, it would be freezing cold, but you have to admit--that would be the best waterslide ride of all time.
11. Zhangye Danxia Landform, China
It might look like the cover to a children's book, but this sight is 100 percent real, colors and all!
