  1. Antelope Canyon, USA

Located near Page on Navajo Nation land, just outside Glen  Canyon National Recreation Area, Antelope Canyon is named after the Antelopes that ran wild in these exotic naturally sculpted canons once upon a time. These canyons represent nature’s gorgeous passageways that are testaments of power of water and time that created these wonder natural structures on two levels namely upper and the lower slot canyons. The most amazing part of the canyons is that as the sunlight filters down the curved sandstone walls, it creates magical shadows and patterns that change constantly reflecting subtle shades of colour. One can go hiking in the Antelope Canyons to explore its deeper, longer and narrower slots with scarce light at some places and great depth, length, width along with ambient light at other. The canyons are indeed miraculous structures created as if created by a master sculptor that makes its onlookers absolutely awestruck.

Walking through the wisteria tunnel in Japan in the Kawachi Fuji Gardens seems to be like a fairytale experience. The pastel coloured 50 varieties of Wisteria flowers and their exotic fragrances overwhelms your senses as you walk through the tunnel.  A Wisteria flower grows down from the tip of its long veins swaying down beautifully that perhaps must have captivated the imagination of the creators of the tunnels , that are of two kinds  wisteria domes and wisteria trellises. The wisterias bloom magnificently in the month of April to Mid May and that’s the best time to visit this natural marvel that is a 5 hours run from Tokyo that  can be reached by Nozomi high speed train.

This European island located in the Aegean Sea with its blue water against pure white buildings is quite intriguing and probably happens to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. This Cycladic Island is painted white because of bioclimatic reasons, with an idea to reflect the harsh summer light and make it more heat resistant. The city follows traditional primitive Greek architectural techniques wherein the walls are built with stone, that endures both heat and cold very well, while the roofs are insulated by a combination of mud, hay, wood and volcanic ash cement. Santorini happens to be one of the most popular islands in the world, which happens to be a complete destination that showcases most exotic, ancient cities, gorgeous scenery, tantalizing food and some of the best wines of the world.
