China’s Great Wall is one of the very few man-made objects that can be seen from outer space, which shows how majestic this site truly is. There are many spots in China you can visit the Great Wall, even on the outskirts of Beijing. It is best experienced by getting away from the cities to see it in solitude. When you are standing on the Great Wall in a rural area, you can almost picture the Mongol hordes that it was built to protect riding up to the wall.

Victoria Falls

Zambia - Mosi-oa-Tunya

Located on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia, Victoria Falls is the biggest set of waterfalls in the world. The falls stretch out for over a mile, and they reach an elevation of 354 feet at their highest point. The incredible amounts of sound that the falls produce are sure to wow visitors. The constant mist of the falls also is notable for producing many fantastic rainbows. This is a sport that offers a wealth of photo opportunities.

Machu Picchu

Located high in the mountains of Peru at an elevation over 8,000 feet above sea level, Machu Picchu is one of the most magical spots on the planet. These ruins were not discovered until the 20th century, and they are completely unspoiled. The sunrises over the ruins are incredible. Many hikers make the trip to the ruins by taking a five-day hike over the Inca Trail, but there is a train ride available for those less inclined to exercise.

Great Barrier Reef

The gigantic cope of the Great Barrier Reef is hard to wrap your mind around. It is the largest collection of coral reefs in the world. It is so large that it can actually be seen from outer space. In fact, the Great Barrier Reef is the largest structure made by any animal on the planet, and that includes everything that mankind has built. Sadly, the rising acidity level of the world’s oceans is rapidly killing off the coral reefs due to bleaching, so visitors should come to see the Great Barrier Reef while it is still in existence.

Taj Mahal

It is out in the middle of nowhere now, but tourists who take the time to make the trip will enjoy the rewards it offers. There is no more majestic temple on Earth than Angkor Wat.

The Great Pyramid of Giza
