✅ Antelope Canyon, United States
The Arizona region, United States, has the most beautiful canyon (valley) in the world called Antelope Canyon. This natural charm is formed from the erosion of the Navajo sandstone through flash floods and sub-aerial processes (the formation of objects on the ground). The faster water flows automatically increases the volume of sand, which continues to grind into the basin path.
This area is divided into two parts, namely the upper Antelope Canyon (the Crack) and the Lower Antelope Canyon (the Corkscrew). Although the temperature tends to be hot, it is not uncommon for Antelope Canyon to be hit by sudden storms or floods. Therefore, visitors who want to enter are required to use the services of guides from local residents.
✅ Sea Cliffs, France
Apart from being famous for the Eiffel Tower, France also offers a variety of natural charms that are no less beautiful. One of them is the Sea Cliffs which is on the west coast of this largest wine-producing country. This limestone cliff in the Eretrat region has three beautiful arches formed by the erosion of the sea waves. As a result, the hollow corals that form are the main attraction at the Sea Cliffs.
Uniquely, when viewed from a distance, the shape of the cliff will resemble an elephant standing on the edge of a white sandy beach. If you are interested in seeing the uniqueness and beauty of nature here for a long time, you can spend the night at several luxury inns around the beach. You only need to prepare around IDR 2 million for rent per night.
✅ Panjin Red Beach, China
Generally, you will find white or brown beaches, but it’s different from the Red Panjin Beach in China. As the name implies, this beach actually has a red color on the sand beaches. Not an artificial color, the red color of the sand is produced from the sea-blite grass, which covers the 6,000-hectare beach area.
Even so, you cannot see this view all year round. The reddish color of the grass will only appear towards the fall, from September to October. Not only that, being a habitat for about 260 species of birds and 399 animals, Pantai Merah Panjin is also still limited to the public. So, keep up the cleanliness when you visit it!
✅ Aogashima, Japan
Aogashima is part of the Izu Islands, located about 300 kilometers south of Tokyo. This area is a crater resulting from a volcanic eruption that erupted about 200 years ago. Usually, tourists will do hiking or sauna activities at several available steam points. Although quite remote, the island is equipped with a school and post office for local residents.
If you are interested in visiting Aogashima Island, you can only reach it by ferry or helicopter. Even so, you must always be careful because the volcanoes on this island are still active and can erupt at any time.
✅ Glow Worm Cave, New Zealand
Glow Worm Caves or Waitomo Ruakuri Caves are some of the most popular destinations in New Zealand. Inside the cave, visitors will be presented with a beautiful view of the sparkling lights like stars at night. However, who would have thought that the light came from a collection of Arachnocampa Luminosa worms (glowworms) which can emit green and blue light in the dark.
Not only that, but you will also be amazed by the beauty of the limestone cave, complete with unique stalactites in it. This cave is open every day starting at 09:00 local time, and you only need to pay a ticket of Rp. 380,000 for adults and Rp. 176,000 for children (4 – 14 years). Later, you will get on a boat to go down the river in the cave.
