33 Unbelievable Places To Visit

God has created an amazing planet earth. Some of the most beautiful places here could make you breathless when you see them. There is no other alternative but to travel around and see them with your own eyes. Travel has always been my first choice of spending my free time and affordable money (if I have some).

I came across these 33 photos of beautiful places on this planet earth. Some of them I have seen them, like the amazing “Avatar Tianzi mountain” in zhangjiajie, China, the Reed Flute Cave in Guilin, China and the Pamukkale hot spring in Turkey. However there are still 30 others I have not seen.

I hop you enjoy these photos as much as I do.

33 Unbelievable Places To Visit Before You Die. I Can’t Believe These Actually Exist On Earth…

Mark Pygas
So many other-worldly places exist right on our planet, and we never even knew about it. Here are 33 landmarks that look like paintings and scenes from science fiction movies.

Salar De Uyuni, Bolivia


During the rainy season, the world’s largest salt flat becomes the world’s largest mirror. The Salar was born when several prehistoric lakes joined into one. The salt flat is so reflective, it’s used to calibrate satellites.

SwedenBeautiful Landscapes

Recently I received an email informing me about an amazing book “Ten of the world’s most mind-blowing landscapes” (Press here to view) from Lonely Planet.

Some of the highlighted landscapes are so beautiful that you cannot imagine where on earth could you find such places. My photography friends told me that much of these beauties can only be captured if you are a professional and experienced photographer. I cannot agree more. To say the least, I can never take such beautiful landscape even I live there. 🙂

My interest in photography “happened” just about 3 years ago when my brother Soon Meng introduced it to me. He showed me some of his photos taken in his family trips. I noticed his pictures have much better composition and sharpness than what I could take from my “fool-proof” fully automatic camera.

As I mentioned in my previous post (read here), traveling is in my top list of interests and hobbies. Although it is not a cheap hobby, I have no regret to be thrifty in my ordinary days and save all I can, just to visit my dreamed cities and countries.

ZhnagJiaJie (张家界) in China

One of the best places I visited after I’ve got my semi-professional Nikon camera was Zhangjiajie (张家界) in China. At that time, I learned very little about photography (and with little improvement since then). I saw the majestic mountains and the beautiful landscapes. However, I could not capture 10% of their beauties and majesty using my camera.

I still think it is worth sharing a few pictures with all of you. If I have more time, I may share more next time. Please don’t laugh at me but I truly appreciate your feedback and comments about these pictures. Your comments will surely help me to improve my photography skills.

Those of you who can read Chinese, this is a great article (which I read before I went on the tour) introducing the 10 best scenic spots in Zhangjiajie. (Press here to read)

I hope you enjoy all these photographs. I know there is nothing to shut about at all but they mean a lot to Julia and I. We truly enjoyed the trip – one of the reasons was that our two teenaged children were not with us – we did not need to take care of or worry about them. A great “honeymoon” trip for us.

Appreciate your comments on these photos – I am a keen learner and I want to shoot better pictures in our next trip.

Thank you.
