Some travel destinations and places are so stunning they stay locked into your memory, from the colourful souks of Marrakech, Morocco to the iconic domes of Santorini, Greece. But it’s not just their beauty that stays with you. It’s a feeling — perhaps of their scope or magnitude.
Jetsetter, the travel website, recently compiled its give-you-the-feels bucket list of the 24 Most Beautiful Places in the World. The editors selected a diverse mix of “awe-inspiring landscapes, feats of architecture and cultural immersion,” from Jaipur the Pink City in northern India to Kauai’s rugged Na Pali Coast. The one thing they all have in common? Their irresistible beauty. “Just try to take a bad picture,” they write. “We dare you.”
They’re not alone in their views. Postcard-perfect St. Lucia and Marrakech’s medina, which made Jetsetter’s list, also made Harper’s Bazaar’s 30 Most Beautiful Places in the World. Cappadocia, the part of Turkey where cities are carved out of the rock, landed on both Jetsetter’s list as well as Conde Nast Traveler’s 50 Most Beautiful Places in the World.
Here are the top 10 places on Jetsetter’s ranking to add to your bucket list.
- Jaipur, Rajasthan
- St. Lucia, Caribbean Islands
- Santorini, Greece
- Bagan, Myanmar
- Na Pali Coast, Kauai
- Petra, Jordan
- Cappadocia, Turkey
