A rainbow on the hills of Gansu, China, autumnal colours all year long, a World Heritage Site.
Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, Myanmar is not only one single pagoda, but a whole complex of temples and other buildings. And most of them are so gold.
Out of all the places in the whole world it is

The Golden Pavilion, known as
Kinkaku-ji, is one of the most impressive sites in Kyoto. And on a still day you can see an almost perfect reflection in the lake.

On the border of Brazil and Argentina
Waterfalls are spectacular natural places.

It is a

These stones have seen a few winters
Stonehenge has been standing for more than 4,000 years, and will not worry about a little snow.

But I quite like this photo of Mt Fuji, taken from somewhere in
On April 21st 1960 the city of Brasilia was finished. It took three years to build this new city, and it immediately became the capital of Brazil. It is now a World Heritage site.
These spheres are found in Costa Rica, and they may become a Unesco World Heritage Site in the future.
No-one knows for sure how or why they were made, but it can be seen that they are incredibly round and the work of a master stone-mason or two.
