In every corner of the world, there are places that will make even the most seasoned travellers go ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’. They might be natural landmarks or manmade gardens, individual buildings or even entire towns. One thing that often unites these breathtaking destinations? Bold, intense colour – so much of the stuff you’ll go away feeling like you’ve visited some wacky sci-fi movie set, or even another planet entirely.
In the absence of IRL travel, we’ve all had to resort to other activities to feed our wanderlust over the past year or so. For many of us, this has involved unprecedented amounts of scrolling – and gazing longingly at the kinds of eye-popping technicolour destinations that would stop us in our tracks if we were there in the flesh.
Inevitably, the thrill of laying eyes on such bright, beautiful places isn’t as overwhelming in the virtual realm. But let’s be honest: it’s as close as most of us are going to get right now to roaming far and wide. So, ready for some serious #travelinspo? Here are 27 of the most brilliantly colourful places in the world, to plan a visit to… one day.
