Perfect for bucket lists! Top 10 countries you definitely want to visit

 1st place: Uyuni salt lake, Bolivia

Uyuni salt lake, which is said to be the best miracle in the world, exists in South America and Bolivia.

When it rains on the white salty land, a thin layer of water fills the ground and reflects the sky as a mirror. The view of the sky spreading 360 degrees to your feet is like walking on the clouds. The mysterious beauty, also known as the "mirror of the sky," is a magnificent view that will surely impress you that you were glad to see it before you died.

Furthermore, if the conditions are met that the wind is not blowing on the night of the new moon without the moon, the stars in the sky will be reflected on the surface of the lake. You can experience an incredible different world where everything around you is surrounded by a starry sky. It can be said that it is a suitable place for the first place in the bucket list ranking.

2nd place: Chile Easter Island

Easter Island, a mysterious island located about 5 hours by plane from Santiago, Chile. About 1,000 moai statues of different facial expressions and sizes are scattered on the island, and many points remain a mystery. It is said to be one of the seven wonders of the world, and it is a place that many travelers long for before they die.

The highlight is Ahu Tongariki, where 15 moai statues are lined up in a row. The moai statues, each of which has its own individuality, change its appearance depending on the time of day, such as the sunrise and sunset, and show the beauty of a painting. The mysterious world is perfect for one of the bucket lists.

3rd place: Antelope Canyon, USA

In the United States, which has about 25 times the land area of Japan, there are many spectacular views where you can feel the power of nature and the earth. Among them, I would like to mention as a candidate for the bucket list, the valley Antelope Canyon where the fantastic light shines. It is said to be a work of art created by the earth, and the curvaceous beauty drawn on the soft sandstone has fascinated many travelers.

The most beautiful time is around noon when the sun rises overhead. I feel the divineness of the light that shines between the valleys. There are two highlights in Antelope Canyon, the upper and the lower, but if you are new to Antelope Canyon, we recommend visiting the lower where you can experience more power.

4th place: Turkmenistan Gate of Hell

In the small town of Turkmenistan, there is a huge crater called "The Gates of Hell". In a hole that suddenly appears in a quiet and vast desert, a scorching flame has been burning for more than 40 years, giving off an eerie atmosphere. You must be shocked by the overwhelming power and the breath of the earth when you see it burning with a violent growl.

The recommended time is early morning and dusk when the flames are most vivid. It's hard to visit, but the unexplored region that doesn't even appear in guidebooks is a place suitable for a bucket list that you want to see at least once before you die. You should go early because you don't know how long it will continue to burn.

5th place: Tahiti Bora Bora

Bora Bora Island in Tahiti is so beautiful that it is called a paradise on earth. It is a resort where you can enjoy the ultimate luxury. It has been selected as the number one beach in the world, so I definitely want to put it on the bucket list.

The spectacular view of the crystal clear waters and the mysterious Mount Otemanu from the water cottage is truly spectacular. Spend a stress-free time all day and relax your mind and body.

Not only can you relax at the inn or on the beach, but you can also spend time actively on the 4WD safari, snorkeling, cruising, picnics, and shopping. Another point is that you can eat French cuisine using fresh seafood.

6th place: Finland Lapland

Located in Finland's northernmost Arctic Circle, Lapland is an extreme night with white nights in the summer and polar nights in the winter without the sun rising. Watching the northern lights that color the polar night sky is a popular activity that represents Finland. There are various colors of aurora such as green, blue, yellow and purple, and red ones are said to be extremely rare.

In the cold sky, the bright curtain of light flowing all over is the most fantastic sight in the world. As a traveler's favorite destination, it always ranks high in the bucket list rankings. In addition to the northern lights at night, one of the reasons for its popularity is that you can enjoy winter-only activities such as dog sledding and skiing during the day.

7th place: Machu Picchu, Peru

Machu Picchu exists in Peru, South America, which once prospered as the Inca Empire and left behind advanced culture and technology. The largest archaeological site of the Inca Empire, built in the 15th century, is called an aerial city in the sky because it suddenly appears in the highlands at an altitude of 2,400 m.

At the time of discovery, it was a ruin covered with jungle. There are still many mysterious points, and in 2007 it was selected as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

The mountains and historic archaeological sites that cover the area are power spots with a spectacular view of a fusion of nature and culture. Many travelers continue to be fascinated by the mysterious appearance that strongly retains the remnants of those days.

Especially the scenery in the rainy season and early morning is recommended. The fantastic appearance of rain and fog and the appearance of the entire ruins illuminated by the rising sun shining through the clouds give off a beauty suitable for a bucket list.

8th place: Santorini, Greece

Santorini is definitely selected in the ranking of popular tourist destinations in Greece. The contrast of colors created by the white walls, the blue waters of the Aegean Sea, and the lovely pink and red flowers is wonderful, and no matter where you cut it, the scenery is photogenic.

The alleys of the city are lined with fashionable shops and cafes, so you can enjoy not only the scenery but also walking around the city. Especially famous is "Oia" where you can see the most beautiful sunset in the world. It has gained popularity as a power spot and has been selected as a bucket list.

The sight of the white walls being dyed orange and the city lights gradually illuminating is truly impressive. It is one of the spectacular views that you want to see at least once.

9th place: Morocco Sahara Desert

Morocco is the main gateway to the world's largest Sahara Desert, which has almost the same area as the United States.

A magnificent view of orange where the desert continues to the end of the horizon. I feel even awe in the quiet world where there are no buildings and only sand and sky are endless.

The sunset time is especially beautiful, and it's hard to say how the colors of the sky and desert change as the sun sets. The beauty of the desert ridge created by nature can be said to be the best work of art in the world to be selected in the bucket list ranking.

In addition, the countless stars that spread in the desert night sky are also one of the highlights. A huge natural planetarium that feels the universe up close gives you a romantic and luxurious time.

10th place: Mexico Cenote

Cenote is a unique spring formed by collecting underground natural water in a limestone hole. There are many cenotes around Cancun, one of Mexico's leading resorts, and it is worshiped as a sacred fountain.

There are various sizes of cenotes, but the most beautiful one is Gran Cenote. The transparency of the water is extremely high, and the mysterious world created by the intensely shining light spreads under the water.

This phenomenon, called the curtain of light, seems to bless people. You can enjoy the spectacular underwater view of the underground lake surrounded by tranquility.

Why not add the deep and beautiful blue fountain to the top of the bucket list?

The countries and spots introduced this time are all spectacular views that are highly worth visiting. The beauty can be fully conveyed by just taking pictures, but you must taste it with your five senses. When you come across the real thing, you will surely be shocked to change your life.

Plan a journey to make your dreams of spectacular scenery come true!
