There may only be seven official natural wonders in the world, but there are many exciting natural attractions around the world worth exploring.

Ha Long Bay of Vietnam is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and for good reason. The bay is home to approximately 1,600 islands and bays, including many massive verdant limestone columns.

This pink lake in Australia may seem unnatural, but it actually gets its color from a chemical that is produced by algae.
3. Rocks of Moher, Ireland.
Located on the west coast of Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher reaches a whopping 214 meters at its highest point.

5. Arches National Park, Utah, USA.
Utah is known for its beautiful red rock formations, notably in Arches National Park. There are 2,000 arches in the park, although due to natural causes, about one arch per year collapses.
