Everyone likes a little piece of paradise. Straight away, the mind wanders to whatever you imagination of paradise is, and the heart aches to get there. Well, it doesn’t have to be a pipe dream, and you are capable of making it a reality. Just imagine visiting a few of these places on the list below that many widely regard as a piece of paradise on Earth. In fact, stop imagining and start doing!
The Great Barrier Reef
There a few reefs situated throughout the world, but none is as magical as the Great Barrier Reef. It can be found just off the coast of Tasmania, Australia, and it is home to some of the most exotic and mysterious marine creatures the world has to offer.
The wildlife aside, there is the reef itself that is full of colourful and strange inhabitants. Truthfully, the Great Barrier Reef is a world of its own, which is the main reason why it is a paradise.
Alaska is home to the most extravagant scenery there is in the world. Lakes, moors and mountains cover the entire state and there is also a diverse range of animals. To see the best of Alaska, however, you need to go in the summer because the winter months can take away from the paradise aspect. In fact, in the winter some people would say it is a slice of hell!
But, in the summer the true Alaska comes out to play, and there is no better place to hike or explore on the planet. Get ready to do some walking though; Alaska is the size of Texas and California combined.
When you think about island paradises, Koh Lipe is the actual Island you are imagining. The island itself is a tiny piece of heaven in the South West of Thailand, and it is unlike any other island in the country. Tourists corrupt the majority of the islands of Thailand, but Lipe keeps its innocence and its naivety.
There are no huge Full Moon parties or westerners embarrassing themselves after too much booze. It is just you, the sea and the sand. Perfect!
Paradise isn’t just about golden beaches, beautiful water and flush greenery. Paradise is also about adrenaline-filled rides in the heart of hundred-foot tall cliffs, snow covering them completely. There are a lot of mountainous areas you can go and get your fill of extreme sports, but the Alps are renowned across the world.
Nothing is better than a place full of history that reminds you of a simpler time. A simpler time where the people were as seemingly advanced as we are now. Machu Picchu is one of these places. It is an Inca citadel in the Andes Mountains in Peru and people know it for its architecture and construction. The citadel offers panoramic views high up in the clouds and is almost a place you would find on another planet. The best thing about Machu Picchu is no-one to this day knows what or why the Inca people built the citadel.
