Nambung National Park, Australia – There's not a soul in sight here to yammer to you about politics. Among remote Western Australia's stunners are the Pinnacles, thousands of limestone spires that pierce the sand dunes of Nambung National Park. Made up of shells, the Pinnacles were formed millions of years ago when this desert was the sea floor.
Tasiilaq, Greenland – With a population of just over 2,000, Tasiilaq is a bustling metropolis by Greenland standards.

Sossusvlei, Namib-Naukluft National Park, Namibia – Located in Africa's largest conservation area, Sossusvlei is a salt and clay pan encircled by some of the world's tallest dunes.

Milford Sound, Fiordland National Park, New Zealand – Writer Rudyard Kipling once called New Zealand's Milford Sound the "eighth wonder of the world," and it's easy to see why.
