At Hotelsclick.com we believe that inspiration for your travellings can be taken precisely from the List of World Heritage Sites that the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization enriches every year, selecting new sites of cultural or physical interest. To prove that our planet is truly an amazing place from a natural point of view and that some human actions are really praiseworthy.
In a world so full of beauty, the U.N.E.S.C.O list can turn into a hive of ideas for our trips, taking us to unveil the most evocative and significant places of the earth, anywhere they are.
The great thing about UNESCO sites is that you can find them anywhere: some are just around the corner, easy to visit; others, more remote and exotic, need a bit of planning to get there.
Only this year, 26 new sites were elected, from Europe to Asia, from Africa to America.
Today we are presenting you 5 of these 26 new UNESCO sites, to start with: they are located in 5 different countries in the world.
We thought it was a good idea to show them within an infographic rather than a mere blog post, so you can help us make it go viral, if you like it. The infographic also includes some extra information on each place.
It goes without saying that the choice is up to you!
From Italy to Denmark, from South America to France and Vietnam, you have just discovered 5 amazing places that perhaps you did not know.
