- Machu Picchu, Peru
It is located high in the Andes Mountains of Peru, Machu Picchu is now believed to have been a sacred royal retreat for the Incan rulers. Built in the 15th century AD and abandoned less than 100 years later, the remote site continues to amaze with its perfectly joined, mortarless, intricate stonework. Huge multi-ton blocks of stone are perfectly joined with each other, without the use of mortar or cement.TOP PLACES TO VISIT IN THIS WORLD
2. The Grand Canyon, Arizona
This incredible natural wonder is in the U.S. state of Arizona. It’s one of those beautiful places for which photos or video just don’t do it justice-its sheer size and scope is hard to comprehend. The Grand Canyon is up to 18 miles wide in places and up to a mile deep. Most visitors come to the area referred to as the South Rim, and there is a range of accommodations available, from tents to a rustic luxury canyon-side resort built from logs. There are a few accommodations on the remote North Rim, and these are reserved years in advance.

- Rome, Italy
The Eternal City is more like a giant, living museum. Visitors are immersed in and surrounded by thousands of years of history. It’s a relatively compact city, and a three-day itinerary gets you to the minimum number of must-see places. These must-see sites for any visitor include the Colosseum and adjacent Roman Forum; the Pantheon; and Vatican City, a separate country in the middle of central Rome.
4. Maui, Hawaii
This Hawaiian island offers a wide range of experiences for visitors. You can surf, enjoy a meal on the beach at a five-star luxury resort in Wailea, ride a horse across a dormant volcano in Haleakala National Park, or hike through a rainforest in the West Maui Mountains. The natural scenery is amazing-it’s truly one of the most beautiful islands in the world.
5. Masai Mara, Kenya
Kenya’s Masai Mara is an incredible bio-diverse area and a popular safari destination. It’s an opportunity to see the “big five” animals like lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo, all during one trip or, if you’re lucky, during one afternoon. The popular times to visit are during the twice-yearly migrations, the main one being in July and August.
