2. Antelope Canyon
If you have been considering the Grand Canyon as the only canyon worth seeing in US, you are missing out the Antelope Canyon located in Arizona.

3. Bora Bora
This island is located in French Polynesia and is known to be one of the best vacation spots in the world. The island boasts of crystal clear waters all around and magnificent accommodations. This island is also one of the most expensive ones to have a vacation at.
4. Victoria Falls
They lie between Zimbabwe and Zambia and are possibly the largest waterfall in the world. The water falls from a height of 354ft (108m) and is spread over a width of 5604 ft (1708m). They make a much better choice than the heavily crowded Niagara Falls, although this opinion is debatable.
5. Norwegian Fjords
Norway has one of the most interesting coastlines in the world which is also one of the longest. Its Eastern coast has a number of jagged inlets which jut right into the inland. The formations within the inlets and the views from them make Norwegian Fjords worth a visit.
This is an island located off the Greek coast and has been the site of one of the largest volcanic explosions in human history thousands of years back. It is home to spectacular views and crazy architecture today.
Iceland is known for its landscapes which would be alien to most of the world. You can see anything from partially frozen waterfalls to the Northern Lights; not to mention the insane sunrises and sunsets. There are miles of barren tundra which form one of the most photographic landscapes in the world. To add icing on the cake, the population of Iceland is extremely party loving which makes this place a haven of party-freak tourists.
8. Moraine Lake, Canada
If you think that a lake is a lake and how spectacular can it be, you have probably not heard about the Moraine Lake in Alberta, Canada. This lake is unique because when the lake is at its full capacity of water, the light rocks from the nearby mountains refract light to create an amazing shade of blue. Besides this, the entire surroundings make an excellent place to spend some peaceful time.
This ancient city of Jordan was built around 1200 BC and is famous for its intricacies. The city has been built inside “towering rocks” and the designers constructed this city in the desert by redirecting the waterways to create an artificial oasis which became the center of trade as well as a fortress.
10. Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu has one of the rarest architecture in the world. At 8000 ft above the mean sea level, you would think that it is a weird place to develop a habitat but you would find yourself wrong when you soak in the enchanting beauty of the city. It was built by the Inca emperor Pachacuti as a getaway location.
