We’re loving Trip Advisor’s review of Awe-inspiring places to visit (especially since Belize’s Blue Hole is also featured)! Commentaries are all real reviews from visitors to these places.
1. Antelope Canyon, Arizona, United States
“This is a photographer’s paradise. Pictures rarely do it justice.”
2. The Great Blue Hole at Lighthouse Reef, Ambergris Caye, Belize
“Here’s a great landmark… one of the top ten scuba diving sites in the world.”
3. Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia
“The biggest and most stupendous of all the temples.”
4. Trolltunga, Odda, Norway
“Unbelievable… long hike, but once you get to the Troll’s tongue it is instant gratification.”
5. Golden Circle Route, Reykjavik, Iceland
“This scenic driving route through southwestern Iceland features excellent scenery and major sights.”
6. Moraine Lake, Alberta, Canada
“Spectacularly beautiful and the backdrop of the mountains makes it just stunning.”
7. Kyaikto (Golden Rock), Yangon, Myanmar
“Visiting the Golden Rock is an adventure… view from the mountain ridge is fantastic.”
8. Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kyoto, Japan
“It’s amazing to walk in those red tunnels… it all feels ancient and magical”
9. Uluru, Northern Territory, Australia
“The sunrise/sunset and the way the rock changes color is just amazing…”
10. Jiuzhaigou World Heritage Site, Sichuan, China
“It’s highly unlikely you will see landscapes like this anywhere else in the world.”
The Tree of Life Chapel, Braga, Portugal. The chapel functions as an intimate prayer room, a place of quiet contemplation for those living in the seminary. Every detail of the structure and its adornments draws its origins from the Bible. Even the overall floor plan and structural solutions echo the six days of creation and the seventh day of rest.
You’re sick of the winter layers, especially the hat hair. Much prefer to be hanging outdoors chilling in the sun…
You’re stuck in your office, when you could be ziplining through tree tops on a Belize Adventure…
You’re drinking hot cocoa, when you could be sipping on one of these (here)!
Your visibility looks like this, when your vista could be…awe-inspiring!
Your commute looks like this, when you could be zooming to get here…
Thrill-seekers have the rare opportunity to spend the night on an ancient Mayan ruin in a luxury tent resembling a suite at Ka’ana, without having to sacrifice the comfort and amenities of the Belizean luxury resort. Ka’ana takes ‘glamping’ to the next level, beginning with a ride through the Belizean jungle next door into Guatemala’s Yaxha National Park. Enter the 1,100-year-old city just after dusk where an expert guide will lead guests to their meal prepared by a local Mayan cook at the base of the ruins.
After dinner, the guide will lead the ascent to highest temple where guests can enjoy views of the Guatemalan countryside while an archaeologist waxes historical about the intricate excavation of the Yaxah Temple. At the end of the evening, guests retire to their luxury digs — a replica of the rooms at Ka’ana, complete with a king-sized bed. The Morning After: Cross Lake Yaxha via boat to visit another, not-yet-excavated Topoxte Maya ruins. kaanabelize.com; packages starting at $2,000
