Pamukkale, Turkey

A series of surreal, white travertine terraces and turquoise pools on the western rim of Turkey’s Anatolian plateau, Pamukkale is something of a geological wonder. During the day, the gleaming stalactites appear pure white; at night, the calcium-rich formations pick up the pinks and purples of the opalescent sky. Bring your cutest swimsuit and bathe, as the Romans once did, in a crystalline pool filled with warm, mineral-rich waters.

Hanging Gardens of Bali

One glance at this hillside hotel's bi-level infinity pool (the most photographed in the world, by the way), and it’s easy to see why Bali is nicknamed the Island of The Gods. Swim up to the pool’s edge and take in the sights and sounds in the forest’s lush foliage: bamboo and cocoa trees here, cloths, toucans, and monkeys there.

Reine Village, Norway

In this village, set above the Arctic Circle in Norway’s Lofoten archipelago, there are jaw-dropping sights at every turn. Keep your phone at the ready as you traverse the village's lush meadows, fjords, mountains and idyllic red-and-white cottages, but don't overcrowd your feed just yet: Your waterfront, rustic-chic digs at the Reine Fishing Huts are optimized for Insta envy.

With its perfumed lavender fields, cobblestone streets, and medieval mansions, Provence is as picture-perfect as French villages come. Stroll down Cours Mirabeau, the main draw, to peruse bakeries, galleries and enchanting cafes, then visit Les Deux Garcons, a brasserie once frequented by Paul Cezanne and Ernest Hemingway. Bed down at La Villa Gallici, a stately mansion with opulent interiors and grounds covered in cypress and plane trees.

Göreme, Turkey

Driving through this winding village is a surreal experience. A landscape sculptured entirely by erosion, the rocky wonderland features a succession of mountain ridges, valleys and conical formations known as “fairy chimneys.” To see the otherworldly landscape from above, book a hot air balloon ride at dawn and watch as the mountains are basked in a golden hue.

Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia

Set against a backdrop of birch and fir forests, this fairytale landscape has 16 crystalline lakes that tumble into each other via waterfalls and cascades. As you walk on the wooden pathways, you might spot bears, wolves, and rare bird species, so bring your zoom lens.

There’s a reason courting couples and honeymooners pick Santorini for their Greek island fix. With its whitewashed houses, black sand beaches, and Aegean Sea views, the island really does deliver on its promise. Take a long walk down to the port of Ammoudi for a seafood lunch right on the water at Sunset Fish Tavern, then see the island from a totally different angle by taking a boat trip along the caldera cliffs. Lay your head at the budget-friendly Santorini Secret Hotel, a collection of 17 villas with panoramic ocean views.

Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque Abu Dhabi

This shimmering white mosque took 12 years and a whopping $680 million to complete. The result is a masterpiece of modern Islamic architecture and design constructed out of white stone, gold and crystal—a testament not only to the Gulf’s vast wealth, but to the riches of Abu Dhabi’s history and culture. Plan a morning visit and watch the light flit against the mosque’s sparkling surfaces.

Once a poor fishing village, Positano is today considered the crown jewel of the Amalfi Coast. The bronzed and the beautiful congregate on the pebbly beaches under candy-swirl umbrellas, watching as superyachts and sea-taxi’s carve through the waters beyond. Check into the vertiginous Palazzo Murat Hotel, a 17th-century villa with hilltop views and an infinity pool, and snap a new profile pic while dining amidst botanical gardens abloom with fragrant flowers.

Erg Chigaga Luxury Desert Camp, Morocco

The nine-hour journey through the desert to Erg Chigaga is long and arduous. (You can thank 110-degree heat and dust storms for that). But the desert camp’s remoteness is a central part of its appeal, and for those travelers undeterred by the lengthy trek, a desert oasis of unmatched beauty awaits. Once you've arrived, you’ll spend your days sand surfing and traveling on camel’s back to Morocco’s highest dunes, and enjoying Berber music around campfire at night.

Sarakiniko Beach, Greece

“Fine,” “silken,” and “golden” are words commonly used to describe some of the world’s dreamiest beaches. Sarakiniko is the exception. Comprised of white boulders that are speckled with hollows, and lacking any vegetation, the volcanic beach looks more like it belongs on the moon than it does Earth. We can’t promise you’ll want to spread out your towel and get a tan, but we can guarantee it’ll make the perfect addition to your Insta feed.

Field of Light, Uluru

Uluru, the iconic sandstone monolith in the middle of Australia’s Northern Territory, has long inspired wonderment among visitors. But never before has the area’s spiritual energy been so keenly felt as now—all thanks to artist Bruce Munro’s new solar-powered installation at the foot of the landmark. Titled “Field of Light,” the wide-scale work is comprised of 50,000 lights that set the desert ablaze with crimson light as darkness falls.

Oscar Wilde Bar at Cafe Royal

The gilded Oscar Wilde Bar has been a fixture of London’s aristocratic social scene for centuries. Virginia Woolf, Brigitte Bardot, Cary Grant and Princess Diana all hung out here, and Oscar Wilde, after whom the bar is named, once consumed so much absinthe that he mistook the chairs for tulips. Go at night when cabaret singers, character comedians and live musicians take the stage and the champagne is poured ‘till the early hours. The dress code is “celebrative and sophisticated,” so bring your finest threads.

Hôtel Plaza Athéneé

When fashion influencers like Nicole Warne (@GaryPepperGirl) and Camila Coelho (@camilacoelho) visit the City of Light, they make the venerable Hôtel Plaza Athéneé their home base. The chic hotel is located on the famed shopping street Avenue Montaigne, steps from the luxury fashion houses of Dior, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. Splurge on an apartment-size suite for fashion-forward interiors (think: damask chairs and heavy silk draperies) and jaw-dropping views of the Eiffel Tower—just be sure to pull yourself away from the lavish digs for dinner at the beloved Alain Ducasse restaurant.

Monument Valley Utah

No landscape represents the American West more than Utah’s Monument Valley. The area’s iconic siltstone buttes have been immortalized in the work of Ansel Adams, and in such legendary films as Easy Rider and Forrest Gump—not to mention Road Runner cartoons. Spend the night at Goulding’s Lodge, where John Wayne and John Ford stayed during the filming of Stagecoach, and hike the four-mile Wildcat Trail for unbeatable views of the monoliths during the day.
