Rakotzbrücke is a town in the German state of Saxony.

This one-of-a-kind spot in Germany looks like it belongs in a children's book. During the Middle Ages, the people who lived near the bridge built the bridge entirely by themselves, earning it the nickname "The Devil's Bridge." It's become a legend in and of itself because it's so difficult to reach.

Hunan, China's Wulingyuan

In China's Hunan province, this beautiful landscape may be observed. This landscape is known for its 3,000 slender sandstone pillars and peaks, some of which are over 200 meters tall, and it covers more than 26,000 hectares of land. Streams, ponds, and waterfalls cut their way through the rocks. People adore getting lost in their caves and enjoying the exhilaration of crossing natural bridges within the cave.

Bohol, Philippines' Chocolate Hills

The island of Bohol boasts geological structures that are unique in the globe, with over 1,268 cone-shaped hills spread across 50 square kilometers. Their height varies between 30 and 120 meters. Grass covers the hills, which takes on a "chocolatey" colour during the dry season, when the grass dries out and turns into massive "chocolate."

Australia's Christmas Island

One of the world's most bizarre and colorful wildlife migrations takes place on this island in the Indian Ocean.
