Not sure what to add to your Christmas wish-list? If you enjoy experiences more than physical gifts, you can wish for a trip to one of these places. While we know that heaven on earth doesn’t literally exist, there are a few places which can surely make you feel like it does.
1. Jervis Bay, Australia

Currently questioning whether this is real? We don’t blame you! The Jervis Bay in Australia looks almost too good to be true. It is home to some of the world’s whitest sand beaches and a diversity of marine animals. But, the most breathtaking sight there is to watch the bioluminescent phytoplanktons light up the shoreline at night, giving it a blue mystical glow.
2. Hang Son Doong cave, Vietnam
The Hang Son Doong in Vietnam is the world’s largest cave which has been compared in size with some of the most renowned natural wonders of the world such as the Great Barrier Reef, Mt. Everest, and the Grand Canyon. What’s interesting is that the cave was only discovered recently in 2009 and has been open to the public since 2013.
3. Hallerbos Forest, Belgium
This dreamy forest located in Belgium is the perfect spot to visit in the spring with millions of bluebells blooming from late April to May. Tourists may also come across rabbits and deers that inhabit there.
