1. Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
Frozen in the depths of winter, the worldโ€™s largest salt flat is transformed in to a giant sky-reflecting mirror during rainy season. The pools left over from this monumental prehistoric lake create a shimmering, illusory horizon, making it one of the best places to visit in the world if you like a good trick shot or fun selfie!

2. Northern Lake Baikal, Russia
Another amazing lake, this one is located in southern Siberia and is the worldโ€™s largest freshwater bit of blue. The water round these parts freezes into sheets of turquoise ice in winter that might look more at home in Supermanโ€™s Fortress of Solitude. Temperatures can plummet to -19ยฐC from December to February, so donโ€™t forget to pack the onesie.ย

3. Kuang Si Falls, Luang Prabang, Laos
Already a top holiday destination for backpackers, the Laotian city of Luang Prabang is temptingly close to Kuang Si Falls, a three tier splash spectacular with waters so clear and blue itโ€™ll be hard to resist jumping straight in. Hike the trails around the area to escape the tour groups and find your own secret slice of paradise.

Youโ€™ve heard of the White Cliffs of Dover, but how about the โ€˜White Cliffs of Normandyโ€™? The chalk-white Alabaster Coast stretches for 80 miles are rises in cliffs up to 100m high, forming odd structures like the arch at ร‰tretat.

10. Abel Tasman National Park, South Island, New Zealand
Great granite cliffs in crazy formations back sandy beaches. Go sea kayaking and find a beach for yourself. And why not extend your stay with a tour around the North Island? Auckland has tonnes of things to do, including the chance to throw yourself off a tower.
