#4 STILT FISHERMEN, SRI LANKA
For lovers of the Asia region, take a flight to Sri Lanka, a pearl of the East that is rich in culture and wondrous scenery. The most beautiful spots are sometimes the simplest.
If you go near the coast, stop and watch the local fishermen who, from the top of their stilts, offer you a visual composition out of time. You can often catch them doing their routines at dawn, noon and dusk at the southern coast in towns like Koggala, Kaththaluwa and Ahangama.
You can even book tours to Mirissa beach, Hikkaduwa Beach or Unawatuna Beach where the fishermen will teach you their ways and get you on the stilts for a snap.
#5 ICE CAVES, ICELAND
A country on the edge of the Arctic Circle, Iceland offers natural landscapes shaped by the cold winds of Mother Nature. Intact, this nature offers moments out of time, borrowing magic from the northern lights.
Another must-see spot on the frozen island is its ice caves, often called Crystal Caves, which offers a wide spectrum of colours depending on the light and the season.
The best time to drop by is between November to March, where you can pop over to the crystal ice cave in Vatnajokull, while the man-made ice cave at Langjökull Glacier and the Ice Cave under the Katla Volcano are available for entry all-year round.
