Dream Travels and Travel Dreams: Top 10 Most Beautiful Places in the World

By Marina Aagaard, MFT

Travels, Best in Class, is the headline of a section in the local newspaper, today. It contains lists of best things related to travelling. It takes a travel fan, me, less than 250 milliseconds to open this section.


The first list is about the most beautiful places in the World. American travel magazine
Condé Nast Traveler has named the 50 most beautiful. This newspaper lists Top 10.

The number one spot is Cappadocia in Turkey. It may not ring a bell, but think balloons floating over strange lava mountains, then the place probably comes to mind.

Top 10 Most Beautiful Places in the World (Condé Nast Traveler)

  1. Cappadocia, Turkey
  2. Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
  3. Mù Chang Chái, Vietnam
  4. Algarve-coast, Portugal
  5. Iceland
  6. Palawan, philippines
  7. Vence, Italy
  8. Ashikaga, Japan
  9. Brecon Beacons, Wales
  10. Dessert, Namibia

A quick search reveals that these are truly wonderful places often seen in magazines and on television. Personally I have only visited two of the places: Iceland – twice as a fitness workshop presenter – and Venice – four times with work, family and husband.
Iceland and Venice really are beautiful and dream travel destinations.

This summer the family holiday of this year goes to number four on the list, Algarve, Portugal, so I am looking very much forward to that. The other destinations are a little out of the way in every respect, so they have to be travel dreams for now.

Top 10 Most Beautiful Places in the World (my view so far) 

  1. Norway, West-coast and more
  2. Greenland, Thule
  3. Tanzania, Kilimanjaro National Park
  4. USA, Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon
  5. Italy, a.o. Dolomiti Mountains, Venice and Rome
  6. Iceland
  7. Montenegro, a.o. Kotor
  8. Mallorca, a.o. Cuevas Arta
  9. Cyprus, coastline
  10. Croatia, a.o. Plitvice Lakes

Most beautiful city: Venice. A unique place with 117 tiny islands separated by numerous canals with condolas and 431 small bridges. Picturesque, narrow alleys and lively squares with pigeons and people; marked by time and with an unreal fairytale-like atmosphere, especially early in the morning. A must-visit part of the world.
