It’s hard to narrow down the top 10 amazing places to visit, but here are some of my favorites.
1. The Great Pyramid of Giza
The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis. It was built for Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops), who reigned from 2589 to 2566 BC, and was constructed over a 20-year period concluding around 2560 BC.
The pyramid retains its original flat sides and corners, with a base measuring 230m by 230m at its base, which contains 516 limestone blocks weighing up to 3,400 tons each.
Its height has been measured at 146 meters but additional floors have been found within it leading some experts to believe that it may have been taller than this measurement suggests; however if you add them together you get about 508 meters above sea level which would make it slightly taller than its neighbor at 365m or so!
2. The Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system in the world, and it’s located off the coast of Queensland, Australia. The reef consists of over 3,000 individual reefs and 900 islands with a total area of 1,400 miles (2,250 kilometers).
It’s home to an incredible diversity of wildlife including sharks, rays, and manta rays; sea turtles; dolphins; dugongs (sea cows); whale sharks; sea snakes; pygmy seahorses and more!
You can get an up-close look at this incredible ecosystem by taking one of many trips on board luxury cruises that explore this iconic natural wonder. Some operators offer everything from traditional tours where you take in breathtaking views through glass windows as well as snorkeling excursions where.
You can actually swim next to some amazing creatures up close while others offer kayaking excursions where guests will have plenty of opportunity to experience both watersports activities such as surfing or boogie boarding while also exploring deeper areas within their vicinity.
3. Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in the world. It’s located in Zimbabwe and Zambia. The falls have a width of 1,708 meters (5,604 ft) and a height of 108 meters (354 ft). Victoria Falls was added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1987 because it is one of Africa’s most spectacular natural wonders.
4. Aurora Australis (Southern Lights)
The Aurora Australis, or Southern Lights, are some of the most spectacular sights in Australia and can be seen at any time during the night. You can also see them during the daytime if you’re lucky enough to be in an area that has clear skies and no clouds!
If you’ve never seen an aurora before then this is a great place to start! They last for about 10 minutes but there’s no need to rush so take your time walking around and looking up into the sky (the best views will always come from higher points).
In addition to being beautiful they’re also very relaxing—just make sure not too close as this could cause nausea for some people (especially children).
5. Harbor of Rio de Janeiro
The Harbor of Rio de Janeiro is a famous tourist destination in Brazil. It’s located on Guanabara Bay and it’s one of the best places to visit in Brazil. You will find many interesting attractions at this port, including:
• A lighthouse that has been painted by famous artists like Cildo Meireles and Roy Ventura;
• A monument dedicated to Afro-Brazilian culture;
• An amusement park with rides for kids, adults, and families alike (it includes also a miniature golf course);
All these make this place one of my favorite places to visit while traveling around South America!
6. Paricutin Volcano, Mexico
Paricutin Volcano is a stratovolcano located in the Mexican state of Michoacan. It’s one of the youngest volcanoes in North America, having started growing around 1943. Paricutin is also a tourist attraction because it’s believed to have caused massive wildfires which burned for several years after its eruption.
The volcano has been dormant since its last major eruption, but researchers are now monitoring its activity closely due to concerns that it could erupt again at any time—and this time would be bigger than ever before!
7. Grand Canyon, USA
The Grand Canyon is one of the most famous natural wonders in the world, and for good reason. The canyon itself is 277 miles long and up to 18 miles deep at its deepest point—that’s more than twice as long as London!
It takes about five hours to drive from Williams to the entrance to the canyon; there are plenty of things to do on your way there like seeing wildlife or hiking along beautiful trails.
The cost depends on what kind of accommodation you choose: camping costs around $10 per night while hotels can be as expensive as $300 per night (for some luxury resorts). You’ll also need food and supplies like sunscreen so keep those in mind when planning out your trip!
If you’re visiting during summertime it’s best not to go too early because temperatures rise quickly once midday hits around 11 am-1 pm so wrap up warm before heading outside into nature’s hottest season;
otherwise, wait until autumn when it gets cooler but still sunny with temperatures ranging between 60°F – 90°F degrees Fahrenheit during daytime hours only reaching low 80s F degrees Fahrenheit at night time only once every few weeks depending upon how much cloud cover exists over mountains surrounding area where visitor resides.”
8. Stonehenge, UK
Stonehenge, a Neolithic monument near Amesbury in Wiltshire, England, is one of the most famous prehistoric sites. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Grade I listed building. The stones are made up of sarsen sandstone from quarries at Marlborough Downs, about 12 miles (19 km) away by road.
The site consists of a circular earthwork enclosure measuring up to 72 meters (236 feet) across and surrounded by a bank and ditch which has been dated back to between 3000 BC and 2600 BC.
There are two main theories on how Stonehenge was constructed: either as one large structure or as several smaller ones arranged around an existing timber circle similar to Avebury henge (a ritualistic stone circle), but with more internal space available because it lacked such substantial surrounding earthworks – hence why some consider it simply another example of “folklore” rather than evidence-based history!
9. Mammoth Cave National Park, USA
Mammoth Cave is a national park in central Kentucky, USA. It’s the world’s longest cave system and has more than 400 miles of mapped passageways. The park was discovered in 1811 by explorers from Virginia who explored the area for horse breeding purposes by following an underground river that ran through it.
The caves were named after their large Mammoth Bone fossils found there by these early settlers as well as other bones they found while exploring its depths:
they would be used throughout history as burial sites or place settings at dinner tables across America until they were finally officially recognized as protected lands in 1971 under President Richard Nixon’s administration when he signed legislation into law that made all federal land holdings available for public use without charge (this included areas such as national parks).
10. Mount Everest, Nepal, and China border
Mount Everest, located in the Himalayas between Nepal and Tibet, is the highest peak on earth. The mountain was first climbed by Sir George Everest, a British Surveyor General of India who surveyed this area in 1856.
He named it after his son George: Mount Evel or “Everest’s Peak” which was probably first viewed from afar by an Indian king known for his love for hunting elephants: King Prithivi Narayan Shah (1736-1761).
