The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort, French Polynesia

A valley in Switzerland
The user did not specify where in Switzerland this spectacular valley is, but I decided to include this because it is simply breathtaking and that you might be interested to visit this place one day.
Catedral de Granada, Granada, Spain
A religious structure considered to be having one of the most beautiful architectural designs – breathtaking architecture not just in the outside but even more so in the inside of the church.
In this photo is the majestic and beautiful – Granada Cathedral. Showing its tall columns/pillars, 3 dimensional decoration and carvings on ceilings and almost every part of the cathedral. Neck straining as you’d also be stunned by its beauty. Highlights and photos of my trip to Granada, Spain is now in my blog ???? #travelblog @mypanoplies.com ??? ?? ?? ?? #spain #granada #granadaspain #andalucia #andalusia #españa #espana #ilovespain #alhambra #bestofspain #living_europe #places_wow #europe_vacations #familytrip #travelphotography #destinations #lifewelltravelled #wanderlusting #catedral #bns_spain #architecturelover #columns #placestosee #passporttoEurope #canonmoment #canonm10 #worldheritage #ig_europe
Sagrat Cor church (The Temple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor), Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
A Roman Catholic church and minor basilica nestled on the summit of Mount Tibidabo in Barcelona, Spain. Yes, you read it right – the whole structure is composed of two churches (take a closer look at the photo). According to travel guide website Lonely Planet, it is “two churches, one on top of the other; the top one is surmounted by a giant statue of Christ and has a lift to take you to the roof for the panoramic (and often wind-chilled) views.”
The Jacaranda Trees, Sydney, Australia
If you are visiting Sydney in the month of November, chances are that you are going to experience this magnificent beauty. The stretch of flowering trees starts from Paddington to Lavender Bay. It has been said that “no other blossoming has quite so transformative an effect on the city” as it seems to change the light – it becomes bluer.
“This most beautiful flowering tree is a native of Brazil, and no garden of any pretensions can be said to be complete without a plant of it.” ~ Sydney Morning Herald, 5 December 1868
Phi Phi Islands, Krabi Province, Thailand
This tropical paradise is one of the most popular vacation spots in Thailand; in fact, it is dubbed as country’s “island superstar”. This group of islands has become even more popular when it was used as the primary location for the 2000 British-American movie The Beach, starring Leonardo DiCaprio
Death Valley National Park, California and Nevada, US
Declared as a national park in 1994, Death Valley has been attracting many tourists for years. It is a favorite spot of stargazers as well as of those who are into night sky photography. But the place offers more than that. If you want a more daring adventure, then you might want to consider visiting this place – at least once in your life time.
Taj Mahal, Uttar Pradesh, Agra District
Is there anybody out there who isn’t familiar with the Taj Mahal? Perhaps, there is none. Most probably, you’ve seen this wonder on print or on TV some time in the past. This vast mausoleum of white marble was built between 1631 and 1648; it is the jewel of Muslim Art in India, and has been one of the universally admired human creations in the world.
A diving spot, Greece
Where in Greece this diving/snorkeling spot specifically located? Well, I don’t know… the user did not mention the name of the place, but still, this photo caught my attention. I mean, look at the underwater terrain – quite unique. So, guys, if you are into diving, and visiting Greece is part of your bucket list, you might want to be more adventurous, and try this one.

Northern Lights, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories
The aurora borealis, or northern lights can be seen in several places in Canada, but visitors have a 90% chance of seeing this spectacular phenomenon in less populated provinces during the winter months – like in Yellowknife, which is the eastern neighbor of Canada’s Yukon – another great place to witness such a nature’s beauty.
Initiatic Wells aka Inverted Towers, Sinatra, Portugal
Initiatic Wells aka Inverted Towers are two wells (connected to one another by tunnels) found at Quinta da Regaleira, an estate located in Sinatra, Portugal. The place has been classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and is considered one of the principal tourist destinations of Sinatra. These wells never served as water sources. Instead, they were used for ceremonial purposes that included Tarot initiation rites. Other features include various caves, monuments, and a 27-meter spiral staircase with several small landings.
