Luoping County, China.
The county of Luoping in eastern Yunnan is noted for it's beautiful scenery in spring, when it's fields of canola flowers are in full bloom, surrounding the area's mountains with a sea of golden flowers to spectacular effect.
Fingal's Cave is a sea cave on the uninhabited island of Staffa, in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, part of a National Nature Reserve owned by the National Trust for Scotland. It became known as Fingal's Cave after the eponymous hero of an epic poem by 18th-century Scots poet-historian James Macpherson.t is formed entirely from hexagonally jointed basalt columns within a Paleocene lava flow, similar in structure to the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland and those of nearby Ulva.
In all these cases, cooling on the upper and lower surfaces of the solidified lava resulted in contraction and fracturing, starting in a blocky tetragonal pattern and transitioning to a regular hexagonal fracture pattern with fractures perpendicular to the cooling surfaces. As cooling continued these cracks gradually extended toward the centre of the flow, forming the long hexagonal columns we see in the wave-eroded cross-section today. Similar hexagonal fracture patterns are found in desiccation cracks in mud where contraction is due to loss of water instead of cooling.
The glow worm, Arachnocampa luminosa, is unique to New Zealand. Thousands of these tiny creatures radiate their unmistakable luminescent light as our expert guides provide informative commentary on the Caves' historical and geological significance.
Waitomo Glowworm Caves, New Zealand.
Catedral de Mármol
The Marble Cathedral (located next to the Marble Chapel) is a formation mineral of calcium carbonate on the shores of Lake General Carrera , Chile . Throughout the years, the waters of the lake have eroded the cliffs coastal creating these formations, which when the lake is at a low level, you can go inside in small boats.It consists of a few islets located a few meters from the shore of the lake, which are named Marble Cathedral, Chapel of Marble and Marble Cave.You can access this training via the lake in small boats from the town of Puerto Rio Tranquilo (in the municipality of Río Ibáñez , 223 km from Coyhaique , capital of the Aysen Region ). From here you can rent small boats, walking the field of Marble Cathedral.
Lake Hillier, is a lake on Middle Island, the largest of the islands and islets that make up the Recherche Archipelago, Western Australia. Although the source of the pink colour has not been definitively proven in the case of Lake Hillier, the pink colour of other salt lakes in the region arises from a dye created by the organisms Dunaliella salina and Halobacteria. Another hypothesis is that the pink colour is due to red halophilic bacteria in the salt crusts.
Panjin Red Beach
The Red Beach is located in the Liaohe River Delta, about 30 kilometer southwest of Panjin City in China. The beach gets its name from its appearance, which is caused by a type of sea weed that flourishes in the saline-alkali soil. The weed that start growing during April or May remains green during the summer. In autumn, this weed turns flaming red, and the beach looks as if it was covered by an infinite red carpet that creates a rare red sea landscape. Most of the Red Beach is a nature reserve and closed to the public. Only a small, remote, section is open for tourists.

Neuschwanstein Castle is a nineteenth-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to Richard Wagner. Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune and by means of extensive borrowing, rather than Bavarian public funds.The palace was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886. Since then more than 61 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle. More than 1.3 million people visit annually, with as many as 6,000 per day in the summer. The palace has appeared prominently in several movies and was the inspiration for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle and later, similar structures.
Bali is an island and the smallest province of Indonesia, and includes a few smaller neighbouring islands, notably Nusa Penida. It is located at the westernmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands, between Java to the west and Lombok to the east, and has its capital of Denpasar at the southern part of the island.With a population of 3,890,757 in the 2010 census, and currently 4.22 million, the island is home to most of Indonesia's Hindu minority. According to the 2010 Census, 84.5% of Bali's population adhered to Balinese Hinduism, 12% to Islam, and most of the remainder followed Christianity. Bali is also the largest tourist destination in the country and is renowned for its highly developed arts, including traditional and modern dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking, and music. A tourist haven for decades, the province has seen a further surge in tourist numbers in recent years.
Zion National Park, USA
The park is located in southwestern Utah in Washington, Iron, and Kane counties. Geomorphically, it is located on the Markagunt and Kolob plateaus, at the intersection of three North American geographic provinces: the Colorado Plateaus, the Great Basin, and the Mojave Desert. The northern part of the park is known as the Kolob Canyons section and is accessible from Interstate 15, exit 40.
To Sua Ocean Trench, Samoa
Located in the village of Lotofaga on the south coast of Upolu island in Samoa, is the To Sua Ocean Trench. An all-natural swimming hole with a large ladder and small dock to access the 30 meter deep hole.
The island of Upolu was formed by a massive basaltic shield volcano. With an area of 1,125 km2 and a population of 135,000, it is the second largest in geographic area and the most populated of the Samoan Islands.
Meenakshi Amman Temple

The Galapagos archipelago consists of 13 main islands and 6 smaller isles. The Galapagos National Park is world renowned for its unique and "Fearless Wildlife" much of which was inspiration for Charles Darwin's Theory of Natural Selection. Giant tortoises, sea lions, penguins, Galapagos sharks marine iguanas and different bird species can all be seen and approached. The activities that you can do on Galápagos Island are: climb the hill on Bartolome for the classic Galapagos view; visit the Giant Tortoise breeding center at the Charles Darwin Research on Santa Cruz; see the red neck sacks of the Magnificent Frigatebird on Seymour; Go snorkeling as often as possible.

Fairy Pools, Isle of Skye, Scotland
At foot of the Black Cuillins near Glenbrittle are the Fairy Pools, beautifully crystal clear blue pools on the River Brittle. These famous pools entice visitors from all over the world, as they make some great ‘Wild Swimming’ for those brave enough to enter the cold water. For the less adventurous these magical Fairy Pools make some fantastic photos. This walk is suitable in most normal weather conditions, but if it has been raining hard some on the river crossings can become a real challenge.
From the carpark there are impressive views out towards the Black Cuillins, the source of the River Brittle. This short walk to the pools follows a gravel path that is in good condition most of the way, but does involve river crossings over stepping stones. It takes about 20 minutes to get the first and largest waterfall that marks the start of the pools.
In the early 20th century, Fort Bragg residents threw their household garbage over cliffs owned by the Union Lumber Company onto what is now Glass Beach, discarding glass, appliances, and even vehicles. Locals referred to it as "The Dumps." Fires were lit to reduce the size of the trash pile.
The California State Water Resources Control Board and city leaders closed the area in 1967. Various cleanup programs were undertaken through the years to correct the damage. Over the next several decades the pounding waves cleaned the beach, by breaking down everything but glass and pottery and tumbling those into the small, smooth, colored pieces that cover Glass Beach.
The beach is now frequently visited by tourists. Collecting is not permitted on the park's beach, although sea glass can be found on other local beaches outside the park boundary. A Glass Festival is held annually on Memorial Day weekend.

In Venice you can do almost things, examples: Standing in the middle of the magnificent piazza San Marco is an experience in itself: Napoleon referred to it as the ‘drawing room of Europe’, apt today as, at times, it appears that much of Europe’s population is crammed into this great square. But it's St Mark’s basilica (Basilica di San Marco), often seen as the living testimony of Venice’s links with Byzantium; Doge’s Palace, once Venice's political and judicial hub; and Torre dell’Orologio, a clock tower built between 1496 and 1506, that are, not just the square's, but some of the city's main attractions.
Shifen Waterfall is one of the most famous in Taiwan. It is not very tall (20m) but it is wide (40m) and powerful. It forms a horseshoe and has been nicknamed the Little Niagara even though it is much smaller. Shifen is a very popular stop along the historic and stunning Pingxi Railroad.
The hike: It is a 15 minute walk east to the waterfall with plenty of signs (some in Chinese) along the way. Alternatively you can do the longer Sandiaoling Waterfall Trail and get off the train in Sandiaoling. It will probably take about 3-4 hours to complete the trail including some time at Shifen Falls.
