Dating back 6 million years, this awe-inspiring site gets shared around pretty often thanks to its gorgeous views.


13. Machu Picchu - Peru

An ancient Incan city high in the Andes, this stunning wonder of the world is on many people's bucket lists, and so when they do get a chance to go there, they like to let people know.

A UNESCO world heritage site, it is a snapshot of an ancient culture that no longer exists, nestled high above the clouds.

12. Niagara Falls - USA & Canada

The mighty waterfalls that border Canada and the USA are world famous for their sheer size as the water drops off the cliff, on the Canadian side, at a height of 50m, and the three waterfalls together have the highest water flow rate in the world.

A natural border between the two countries, it gets snapped from both sides in all its majesty.


11. Mardi Gras, New Orleans - USA

Mardi Gras is a two-week long party in the Louisianna city of New Orleans that involves drinking, outlandish clothes and live music out on the streets. Most of the action is focused on the famous Bourbon Street, but the whole city celebrates.
