Etretat Cliffs (Normandy, France)

The Etretat Cliffs in Normandy are natural wonders that stand tall over the English Channel and white-pebble beach below. Tourists and locals can access them by scaling steep paths, but be careful: To preserve the cliffs, there aren’t many handrails!

Old Bagan (Myanmar)

To really take in the beauty of Old Bagan, rent one of the many hot-air balloons available to tourists and locals alike. With more than 4,000 pagodas, this ancient wonder will take your breath away.

Sisimiut (Along the Davis Strait, Greenland)

The second-largest town in Greenland, Sisimiut offers everything from dogsledding to cross-country skiing to simply taking in the beautiful scenery and sunsets across the bay. 

Unalaska (Aleutian Islands, Alaska)

Despite its witty name, Unalaska is billed as “the gateway to the Aleutian Islands” and serves as a main port for the whole state. Hike along 38 miles of gorgeous, timeworn trails to take in the town’s picturesque vistas, and then settle down for freshly caught fish at any number of local restaurants.

Latin Quarter (Paris, France)

Located along the Left Bank of the Seine, the Latin Quarter has narrow streets that are largely known for their amazing restaurants and cafes, as well as a number of universities, including Paris’ first — the Sorbonne.

Pumukkale (Denizil Province, Turkey)

A UNESCO World Heritage Site in southwestern Turkey, Pamukkale (meaning “Cotton Palace”) was created over hundreds of years by mineral-rich waters running from cliffs more than 600 feet high.

Marina Grande (Capri, Italy)

Situated on the small island of Capri off the coast of Naples, Italy, Marina Grande is the main port for small fishing boats, tourist ferries and luxury yachts. After disembarking from your ferry, stop at a cafe for an espresso and bombolone (doughnut) to chat with locals before taking the tram up the mountain to the main shopping area, where you can indulge in handcrafted Italian designs and breathtaking views.
