Explosions of Color

Those special places in the world when Earth decides to show off.

1. Kawachi Fuji Garden, Japan

As you move through the beautiful tunnels, domes, and trellises of this fairytale garden, you will be surrounded by a sea of purple wisteria blooms.

2. Tulip Fields, The Netherlands

Oceans of red, orange, yellow, purple, and pink tulips flood the fields in the month of April. In Keukenhof, the world’s largest flower park, up to seven million flowers bloom.

3. Panjin Red Beach, China

The world's largest wetland and reed marsh is famous for its seepweed. While it's green for most of the year, it becomes a vibrant scarlet in the fall, making it quite a sight to behold.

4. Hitachi Seaside Park, Japan

In the spring, visit Miharashi Hill to see an ocean of blue formed by their famed Nemophila bloom.

5. Lavender Fields, Provence, France

Fly Geyser is a geologic wonder that was created as a result of a drilling mishap in the 1960s. Because of its minerals and algae, beautiful tones of red and green make it an amazing sight to see.

6. Daigo-ji Temple, Japan

The greatest time to visit is in the fall, when the vivid maple leaves transform the area into a gorgeous wonderland.

7. Dallol, Ethiopia

It's difficult not to be intrigued by the world's hottest location. Sea salt interacts with the minerals in the volcano to produce neon colors, making it the lowest land volcano on the planet. The frigid pools have a stunning turquoise tint, while the warmer pools have a dazzling yellow color.

8. Reed Flute Cave, Guilin, China

The cave, also known as the "Palace of the Natural Arts," was named after a type of reed found there that can be turned into flutes. This natural limestone cave, which is ornamented with stone pillars, is also filled with amusing lights.

9. Northern Lights

Everyone should see the Northern Lights, or aurora borealis, as soon as possible. While there are many areas to see this phenomenon, Iceland, Alaska, Canada, and Norway are among the most popular. Choose a time between late September and late March when the skies are clear and you can get away from light pollution to ensure you get the greatest view possible.

10. Five Flower Lake, Jiuzhaigou Valley, China

This rainbow lake, surrounded by beautiful mountains, swings between colours of blue, green, yellow, and even coral.
