These 5 places to visit before you die are absolute must see places that will give you a good feeling for life. There is so much to see in our world so I had to sum it up to a small list.
Cappadocia – Turkey
You might have seen pictures of this magnificent place before and sometimes even the pictures doesn’t make it justice. This ancient place has been around for 3500 years and gets visited by close to a million visitors a year. The best way to see these amazing formations is to take a hot air balloon over them, still it’s a little pricy to pay 200 Euros but its well worth it and you get to enjoy the scenery for 95 minutes.
Petra – Jordan
This carved temple is known as the pink jewel of Jordan in the Middle East and is featured in a couple of box office movie. It was built 312 years BC and is a symbol for Jordan and the most popular tourist attraction. This magnificent piece of architecture was introduced to the western world at 1812 by the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt and it is one of the new 7 wonders of the world. At night you can see it be lit up by hundreds wax candles.
Machu Picchu – Peru
This magical please is impressive in so many ways but one of them is because it is situated 2,430 meters (7,970 ft) above sea level, a long way to carry a lot of stones to build this old city. A little mysteries is that no one knows exactly what it was used for and it has a lot of plays on astronomical alignments. With a panoramic view this is one of the most popular places to have on a lot of peoples bucket lists. To get to this place you have to first get to the very charming city of Cuzco that only takes 90 minutes from the capital Lima of Peru and then when you arrive to Cuzco you can take a quick but beautiful train ride or take the bus or even walk like the Incas did it on the Inca trail.
The Colosseum – Italy
The Colosseum was completed 80 AD and is a amphitheater and could hold between 50 000 and 80 000 people. The Colosseum is even branded on the five cent euro coin in Italy. It was heavily damaged in 1349 by a massive earth quake but is still well worth seeing today. Opening hours for the Colosseum is 08:30 to 19:15 and is very heavily visited by tourist from all over the world.
Venice – Italy
In Venice there are no cars or motor bikes just canals with boats because it is built on more than 100 small islands. A must is getting a ride on the famous boats true the canals that are called Gondola and be even serenaded while floating true the canals. But book in advanced because this is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations with 50 000 visitors a day, no wonder this is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
