Split into countries, with handy side notes on each attraction, there is a marvel for everyone whether that's the world famous Grand Canyon or Great Barrier Reef or perhaps the lesser-known gems such as the Shirakami-Sanchi Forest or the hauntingly beautiful Wrangel Island. There is a wealth of wonders here to exhaust even the most intrepid of armchair travellers.
