Top 5 must-see sites around the world
I recently returned from a trip around the world where I was lucky enough to see some of the most incredible sites in India, Cambodia, Eastern Africa and Vietnam, In some instances, it was the sheer magnitude of a landscape that mesmerised me , or I was left speechless staring at a single tile of an ancient ruin, possibly thousands of years old. So I wanted to share my top five must see-sites from around the world that I've visited.
1. The Taj Mahal, India. Quite possibly the most romantic building ever designed, the Taj is empowering, secretive and bewitching. Built as a memorial to Mumtaz Mahal, the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan's third wife, it is an incredible display of a romance and dedication and has been honoured as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Although it may be touristy and a little cliched to pose in front of this magnificent building, how could you not?
2. A sheet expanse of Savannahs that are home to incredible wildlife, The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is a true display of nature in all its glory. Camping out in one of the many un-gated campsites, eating dinner around the campfire, falling asleep to hyenas laughing, elephants trumpeting and sharing breakfast with the lions, need I say more?
3. Angkor Wat, Cambodia. It's slowly disappearing back into the jungle and this temple of the three was the most mesmerising. Haloed by Cambodia's sun, the ruins of the Khmer Empire stand green and gracious in the surrounding town. It has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and exploring the three famous temples on foot is the best way to get lost in the maze of ancient stone. Don't forget to wear long sleeve t-shirts, as even scarves won't do at the top of Angkor.
4. The ruins at the Mayan site of Tulum are sometimes in the shadow of Chitzen Itza, another famous ruin of the Mayas, but having visited both I'd have to pick Tulum as the must-see. The ancient city is a mass of tiny, intricate stone buildings, famous for their narrow doorways and few windows, and it sits on the side of a steep cliff, with a backdrop of crystal clear water and an idyllic beach. Tulum was one of the last inhabited Mayan cities and stood for 70 years after the Spanish began settling in Mexico.
5. Probably the least 'aesthetically pleasing' of my chosen sites, it is the captivating history that Cuba's Revolution Square was a stage for, that places it in my top five. As told by a Cuban, locals danced in the square well into the night after the fall of President Batista in the Cuban Revolution, and the square is guarded by a huge metal structure of the Che Guevara's infamous face. Situated in the capital Havana, the Square is surrounded by old classic cars and wide, tree-lined boulevards.
