Most Beautiful Places In The World

Durbar Square, Kathmandu

A flurry of pigeons rains down on Durbar Square’s human and bovine visitors in Kathmandu, Nepal. The birds are a common fixture at this UNESCO World Heritage site, located opposite the old royal palace that served as the royal Nepalese residence until the 19th century. Today, the palace is operated as a museum.

Tumuch Lake, British Columbia

Cloudy skies and calm water merge, allowing this small grassy island in the middle of British Columbia’s Tumuch Lake to float, if only for a second. “There is an ethereal, otherworldly feeling to this photograph,” writes photographer Shane Kalyn. The ripple from a lone fish is the only thing to “bring us back to Earth.”

Oryx of Arabia

“In the afternoon, it was so hot at the bottom of the dune that the oryx ran to the dune top for coolness,” writes Bo Fu, who submitted this photo to the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest. Often referred to as the Arabian unicorn, the oryx once lingered on the brink of extinction; in 1972 only six animals remained in the wild. Now, more than a thousand individuals populate its native range of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates.

At Play in Cuba

A young boy bounces a ball off a wall in Cuba. At about 800 miles end to end, Cuba is the largest Caribbean island and a thriving tourism center for travelers from Canada and Europe. With four main squares and a host of boutique hotels, museums, and galleries, Old Havana in the island nation’s capital is one of the country’s most intriguing attractions.

Short-Eared Owl, Kuwait

A short-eared owl keeps one eye peeled while it relaxes in a Kuwait natural reserve. The short-eared owl, which calls every continent except Australia and Antarctica home, prefers open country, marshes, tundra, and weedy fields. During the day it roosts on the ground or on an open, low perch.
