Beauty is often in the eye of the beholder, so what one individual might say is beautiful another might not see it that way. That is why any sort of top 10 list for most beautiful countries in the world is always going to come with some negative attention, as there are always going to be people who disagree. With that being said, this is a list that should cover the largest number of individuals. The top 10 can be reorder in any sort of way, but these are 10 different countries that can at least be found on a list of the most beautiful countries in the world.
There are very few locations in the world where someone can see a sunrise and a sunset from their hotel. However, this location has different islands located 200 miles apart. There are some major islands that are part of Fiji, but the Lau archipelago covers a large area of ocean. For someone who just wants to experience a tropical life that isn’t bogged down by the over tourist issues that flood the Caribbean, than Fiji is a must visit and why it is considered one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
9. New Zealand
There is a reason why this is the location for Middle Earth and the story of Lord of the Rings. New Zealand is a mostly untouched breath of fresh air in the world and it provides incredible fjords, river ways, incredible parks and sights that just are not going to be matched anywhere else in the world. Some individuals are going to look for beauty with sand and beaches, while others are going to look for beauty in the form of mountains, rivers and majestic landscapes. For those individuals, New Zealand is the country for them. Plus, as it is located off the eastern coast of Australia it is an extremely desirable and rather easy to reach nation.
For people who want ancient history, there are locations throughout the world for that. Really, every single continent is going to have showcases of ancient ruins. From the Great Pyramids to Machu Picchu in Peru, there is no limit to incredible sights and adventures. However, Petra, Jordan is something that is not like anywhere else in the world. Entire cities are carved directly into mountains with brilliant craftsmanship. Plus, for any Indian Jones lover, they will recognize this construction as the resting place for the Holy Grail in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. All of this and the scenery around the country mass it one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
While it is also one of the most dangerous countries in the world, it is also one of the most beautiful. this nation offers visitors everything from mountains to incredible architecture and sculpture (Christ the Redeemer at Corcovado is one of the most incredible statures in the world, regardless of your religious beliefs). Of course, it is also beautiful for the people who live there as well. So, whether someone is looking for a nation of beautiful people or beautiful landscapes, this is the perfect country to take in.
6. United States of America
The United States is a large enough county that it is able to provide individuals with just about anything they might want to see and experience. The Grand Canyon is one of the most impressive canyons on the planet, while Hawaii offers a large number of the top beaches in the world as well. New England has breathtaking foliage during the fall months, and Michigan is home to the largest fresh water lakes in the world. The only real reason the country is not further up on the list is because it does take a while to hop from one location to another, and most travelers who enter the country are not going to be able to see everything they want in one visit. However, it is one of the most beautiful countries in the world with everything it has to offer.
It is rather interesting to come across a water ecosystem in the middle of a desert, but that is exactly what Botswana has to offer. Here, visitors can experience some of the most breathtaking wildlife in the world. The wildlife alone is why this nation is on the list, and as it is safer to visit than many other countries in Africa, plus the combination of desert and reich waterways, this country has so much to offer that it is a true beauty on the planet.
From sweeping landscape to breathtaking vineyards, there really is nothing like France. For those who live city life, Paris is one of the most romantic cities in the world, and even for those who do not like to travel all that much, France remains a highlight and must visit for most individuals in the world. There is something about the French countryside that is not like anywhere else, and it is almost possible to know a still image is France, simply by the rolls of the countryside and the beautiful trees that linger around it.
From the hope of Mount Everest to the neighbor of the much discussed Tibet, Nepal is a beauty all its own. For visitors who want to discover themselves or sky one of the tallest points in the world, Nepal is picture perfect beautiful and one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Plus, the Buddhist temples that line the countryside just add to the intrigue and incredible features this country has to offer.
Chile is just a small sliver along the western coast of South America, but as the roads twist south towards the South Pole, The Torres del Paine National Park is one of the truly beautiful locations in all of the world. Very few other parks throughout the planet are able to match the beauty for this location, as it seems to merge Nepal, New Zealand and the great Yellowstone Park of Wyoming all together in order to form something that most travelers probably have never seen or experienced before.
Again, a list of the most beautiful countries in the world is always going to come down to the opinion of the individual, but it is very difficult to ever create a list of countries that doesn’t include Italy. There might not be anything like the Tuscany countryside. If there is one location that is able to compete with France for incredible views of the country, it is Italy. From Sicily to Rome to the rest of the nation of Italy, there really is nothing like it at all. All of the history just adds to the country and, for those who are lucky enough to explore the nation, it is difficult to find something like it anywhere else in the world, no matter how hard they try.
There are dozens of other nations that could compete for a spot on this list, but what truly matters is that a visitor finds the nation beautiful. If they do, it really does not matter what a list says.
