1. Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.

Exquisitely snuggled between the Zimbabwe and Zambian border is the iconic and mighty Victoria Falls, located in the Matabeleland North region, by road, it's a grueling 9 hours journey so the easiest way is to fly from Robert Mugabe International Airport straight to Vic Falls International airport or directly from any country that you are. Just a stone's throw away from the natural wonder is the world-renowned Hwange National Park, offering tourists a time of their life in-game viewing and camping, the big five can be seen here, zebra, springbok, gazelle, and many other species.

Apart from being the largest coral reef in the world, it is regarded as one of the most complicated and knotty natural habitats in the world.

Located off the east coast of mainland  Australia, this masterpiece of natural architecture is visited by many from around the world. It is feared that widespread climate change could eventually lead to Unesco listing it as endangered, with all being said this is one of my top tourist destinations. 

3. Grand Canyon National Park in the USA.

The USA is littered with world-class tourist attractions but the Grand Canyon is probably its best. Located in Colorado Arizona this majestic piece of the naturally carved landscape will leave you in awe as you behold up to what extent mere water can be so artistic and foam such a heavenly landscape.

The Colorado River is the main architect here, This long river meanders through several US states and even intrudes into neighboring Mexico. The Grand Canyon is very steep-sided with a staggering depth of nearly 2km.

tourists will be able to find affordable accommodation in lodges that are dotted around the park.

4. Ruaha National Park in Tanzania.

If you are a staunch safari enthusiast Ruaha is one of those places you will find untainted wildlife, Deep in the Tanzanian savannah you will find the big five and what is so unique about Ruaha is that it is densely populated with lions and elephants, and other wildlife, you don't have to drive for long distances without a perfect game viewing opportunity. What more can you expect from one of the biggest national parks in Africa, world-class accommodation, and game viewing.

 I have penned another piece on Ruaha National Park, you can read it here.

5. Valley of Flowers in India.

Forest of flowers it is and one would be forced to consider the fact that some divine being took their time to plant this rather gentle valley with autochthonous flowers. Stretching for about 90 km, the Valley of Flowers is a harmonious mixture of exquisite indigenous flowers and trees creating a colorful landscape.

You will find the Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand state and visitors will have to endure a 500km drive from Delhi or travel by train to access the valley. This park is only open during summer from around June to October.

6. Jerusalem in Israel.

Pregnant with a diverse religious significance Jerusalem is a hive of activity with Christians and Muslim tourists overwhelming this historic old city. This is where Jesus was arrested in Gethsemane and later crucified just outside of Jerusalem in Golgotha. Religious tourism is such a money-spinner in Jerusalem, and as soon as prayers are finished visitors have a chance to explore the commercial capital Tel Aviv where life suddenly lights up in this beautiful city.

Although tensions can suddenly flare up in the middle east region due to some hostile neighbors, Israel is usually peaceful all year round. Israel is serviced by most major airlines so booking a flight and accommodation should be a stroll in the park.

7. The Grand Canal in Venice, Italy.

A channel or corridor of water passing through a city lined with beautiful buildings has always fascinated me since childhood, and I began to appreciate the mastery displayed by structural engineers in intertwining nature and modern city life, people can spend hours just watching the water.

The Grand Canal in Venice is a wonder to behold, it is just out of this world, visitors will have a chance to ride in those ancient gondolas and just feel the gentle splash of a paddler not the noise from an engine boat.

The channel meanders through some of the districts of Venice and it finally leads into a lagoon.

8. Rio De Janeiro in Brazil.

Brazil is littered with numerous tourist attractions but the one that stands out and is a perennial cash cow of Bazil's tourism is the Cristo Redentor, Christ the Redeemer in English which is a massive 38 meters high statue of Jesus erected on the peak of Corcovado mountain.

This heavenly piece of sculpture was fashioned by Frenchman Paul Landowski and a bunch of engineers and wow, what an exquisite piece of art. visitors can also visit Sugar Loaf which is a steep rock rising to more than 300 meters above the harbor and is a marvel to behold.

Tourists can also explore one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Copacabana beach, and the beach stretches for several kilometers with beautiful hotels and resorts on its shores.

 Visitors can also see Brazil's biggest stadium, Maracana which is a masterpiece of architecture, this stadium hosted the 2014 world cup.

9. Saltos del Monday in Paraguay.

You need to see how this waterfall is so intricately connected to smaller falls as if they were man-made, it's as if nature is some form of an invisible man carefully laying out this prepossessing scenery.

 Presidente Franco District is where you will find Saltos Del Monday in the Municipal Park Monday in Paraguay, this tourist attraction is also blessed with a lush forest surrounding it for those that love the green. This waterfall is obviously overshadowed by its older brother, the Iguazu Falls which is several kilometers away and is much bigger and picturesque, but still, Saltos Del Monday can hold its own.

10. London in England.

 What could be more intriguing and nail-biting other than being in the sea without getting into the water, well, for centuries now the world's top brains in science and engineering have been trying to make see diving safer without the need for you to put on that weird-looking diving gear and make that splash deep into no man's land and play hide and seek with sharks.

At Sea Life London you will be able to get up close with all manner of marine life through a fortified glass, what's even more interesting is that the shark will stare right into your face and hover around for a while trying to get some sought of access to you, what an experience!

Visitors can visit the Emirates Cable Car and enjoy a spectacular view of the Thames River, sunset and nighttime rides are even more popular because of the stunning reflections of the city on the River Thames.
