The Moon Bridge, Taiwan

source
The Moon Bridge is the main attraction of Dahu Park in the city of Taipei, Taiwan. It’s lit up by the water during the hours of twilight, creating an absolutely enchanting landscape that appears to have been crafted from mirrors.

The white cliffs of Dover, England

source
These famous chalk cliffs can be found on the coast of Kent. They’ve been used since ancient times by fisherman to orientate themselves and act as the first indication that you are approaching England from the sea. It was these cliffs which led to the Romans calling England ’Albion’ (from the word albus, ’white’).

The Troll’s Tongue, Norway

source
This striking stone protrusion was formed by a piece of rock breaking away from the body of a mountain. It hangs 350 metres above a lake. It’s understandably quite difficult to reach — the only way is on foot, along a 12 kilometre track.

Corcovado mountain, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

source
At the peak of Corcovado mountain, where the world-famous statue of Christ the Redeemer is located, you can experience a truly unique, exhilarating perspective of the vibrant city of Rio, as well as of Sugarloaf Mountain.

Easter Island

source
Easter island is a sliver of empty land lost in the vastness of the Pacific ocean. The view of sunset against the backdrop of its famous stone statues is too beautiful for words.

Fjallabaksleid, Iceland

source
This route along a mountain track in Iceland with its unpronounceable name offers a remarkably picturesque journey through the high mountains located to the north of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier. It’s the result of thousands of years of geological activity.

Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

source
40,000 tourists climb Mount Kilimanjaro every year, and that’s not counting all the guides and other support personnel who go with them. And it’s not hard to see the attraction. Even from a distance, this mountain is an incredible sight. The view from the top — even more so.

The Cambrian Hotel in the Swiss Alps

source

This hotel is nestled in the exquisitely beautiful mountains of the Swiss Alps. Of all the locations mentioned here, perhaps this is the one where the word ’breathtaking’ is most appropriate. The romantic, rugged landscape is the stuff of fairytales.
