With the water villas nestled into the sea-blue waters of Maldives as the backdrop, this travel photo looks otherworldly! Tip: Try your camera’s panorama mode vertically instead of panning from side to side to capture an amazing view like this! 

 

4. Watch the humpback whales swim in Hawaii

Do you know the young humpback whales calves can drink as much as 600 litres of milk per day? Over the course of several months, they can develop a thick layer of blubber which helps protect them from the cold waters as they travel back towards the polar ice caps during their feeding season. Some humpback whales will journey as far as 11,000 miles back to the Antarctic peninsula.⠀ ⠀ Credit: @threeifbysea⠀ ⠀ #mayflowergroup #mayflowerholidays #mayflowermemories #flywithmayflower #travel #traveling #travelgram #instatravel #vacation #holiday #instagood #trip #photooftheday #travelling #tourism #tourist #instapassport #mytravelgram #travelgram #travelguide #igtravel #ecopassport #ecotourism #ecotour #mayflowerVIP

These gentle giants can be sighted in Hawaii with their young! Over the course of several months, they develop a thick layer of blubber as they travel towards polar ice caps during feeding season. Some humpback whales will journey as far as 11,000 miles back to the Antarctic peninsula. That’s pretty far from Hawaii, don’t you think?

 

5. Soak in the thermal waters of Saturnia, Tuscany 

 

A deep soak in these warm, bubbling waters makes for a complete therapeutic experience! The thermal waters in Saturnia have been well-known amongst the locals since before the Romans arrived in Italy! The mud in the waters is said to have healing properties too - thanks to its mineral-rich composition. Nothing beats a natural spa in the great outdoors! 

 

6. Witness Mt Kinabalu In its Natural Surroundings

 

The round cloud wrapping around Mt Kinabalu here is known as a Lenticular cloud! Mt Kinabalu is known as the highest peak in all of Malaysia and the Malay archipelago and in traditional Kadazan folklore it is also known as ‘the revered place of the dead’. It is said that the peak is where all souls reside after their deaths! Would you dare to hike up? 

7. Underwater statues at Gili Meno 

 

Did you know that these hauntingly beautiful statues were built to help save the coral fish in Gili Meno? The statues, carved by famed underwater sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, are expected to become part of a coral reef over time, as coral grows out of it to attract colourful tropical fishes.

 

8. Go stargazing at Morskie Oko, the fourth largest lake in Poland 

 

 

According to local legend, Morskie Oko (also known as The Eye of the Sea) is a portal to the Baltic Sea through a magical underwater tunnel! It might take some time to hike to Morskie Oko through the mountains, but the view is definitely worth it. Camp overnight for a stunning view of the stars! 

 

9. The World’s Largest Indoor Waterfall at Jewel Changi Airport 

 

Take in the grandeur of the Rain Vortex Waterfall at Jewel Changi Airport - at seven storeys high, it is known as the largest indoor waterfall in the world! What’s equally impressive is the light and sound show as pictured here, that happens at 7.30pm – 11.30pm daily, at hourly intervals. 

 

10. There’s no place like the Petronas Twin Towers

 

The Petronas Twin Towers may not be the tallest structure in the world - but they still hold the title for tallest twin towers worldwide! While stunning in the day, witness its true magnificence at night from KLCC park. Truly a Malaysian icon!
