Our planet is home to an array of breathtaking places that are definitely worth visiting at least once in our lifetime, ranging from the most stunning landscapes to pristine beaches with crisp blue waters.

However, there’s a slight issue – with more than thousands of scenic sites to check out, it’s not hard for someone to get too overwhelmed with the plethora of choices and have difficulty deciding which ones are actually worth visiting.

While every beautiful place in this world is absolutely worth our praise and admiration, visiting all of them is close to impossible. So to help narrow down your options of gorgeous places to visit in 2019, we went to the trouble of researching a great deal of them and putting the best ones in this list.

Here are the five most beautiful places in the world that you should absolutely visit this 2019.

1. Great Barrier Reef (Australia)

Great Barrier Reef Australia

Famously known for being the world’s largest coral reef system, the Great Barrier Reef is a 2,300-km-long complex ecosystem comprised of more than 900 islands and 2,900 individual reefs. Aquatic species of various types also call the Great Barrier Reef their home, including clown fish, tiger sharks, manta rays, and leather-back turtles. While the massive reef, which can be seen from outer space, is already extraordinarily gorgeous on the surface, its real splendour lies underwater, where the amazing creations of various living organisms all over the Great Barrier Reef are much more visible to everyone.

2. Santorini (Greece)

There’s a reason why some resorts and tourist spots from several countries throughout the world have been trying to emulate the beauty of Santorini’s main town Oia – it’s extremely gorgeous. Nestled above a cliff with an unobstructed view of the island of Thirassia and the Palea volcano, the town of Oia is perhaps the most important and beautiful village in the island of Santorini. This lovely village offers everything from iconic whitewashed buildings and alluring blue-domed churches to gorgeous beaches and unforgettable sunsets. But that’s not all there is to Santorini, because this crescent-shaped volcanic island also has other attractions that are worth checking out.

3. Plitvice Lakes National Park (Croatia)

When it comes to the most beautiful national parks in the world, Plitvice is arguably the most magical of them all. Composed of spectacular blue lakes, ancient oak forests, and limestone rock formations, as well as natural and manmade walkways and bridges, Plitvice Lakes National Park is the type of place that you won’t ever run out of things to admire. To top it all off, birds, wolves, bears, and a host of other interesting wild animals can be spotted roaming around the park’s massive area of over 300 square kilometers. With everything astounding that Plitvice Lakes National Park has to offer, there’s no doubt why it is a tourist magnet.

4. Salar de Uyuni (Bolivia)

Salar de Uyuni (Bolivia)

At first glance, Salar de Uyuni looks like a painting by renowned Spanish artist Salvador Dalí, but it’s actually just a salt flat sitting high up in the southwestern part of Bolivia at an altitude of over 11,000 feet. In fact, Salar de Uyuni is the largest salt mine in the world, with a total area spanning over 4,000 miles. The glistening white salt, unique rock formations, and total flatness of this natural Bolivian wonder makes for a stunningly gorgeous landscape with surreal reflections. Though Salar de Uyuni severely lacks in wildlife, its extraordinary landscape features absolutely make up for it.  

5. Moraine Lake (Canada)

Nestled in Banff National Park’s Valley of the Ten Peaks, Moraine Lake is a scenic place that is full of some of the world’s most breathtaking views. Encompassed by majestic mountains, ancient rock piles, and graceful waterfalls, this glacier-fed lake’s water is mostly a vivid shade of turquoise blue throughout the year. But it changes its color whenever the glacier melts. If you’re into hiking and you want to snap some photographs of Moraine Lake for keeps, around the lake are hiking trails that offer scenic views on different angles, which vary depending on your elevation. You can also opt to grab a canoe or kayak and take in the splendor of Moraine Lake on top of the lake itself.

Roof TrussesIn the vast world of modern construction, people are often torn between the two popular options for their roof trusses – timber and steel.

For the uninitiated, a roof truss is a structural framework consisting of one or more triangular components that are connected by sophisticated end joints. The triangular orientation of a truss allows it to provide stability and support for a roof, which works by distributing weight away from the exterior walls.

Nowadays, people often find themselves choosing between timber and steel roof trusses. Though a steel roof truss also has its own set of advantages, it’s arguable that using a timber roof truss is more beneficial for any construction project, whether commercial or residential. As well as the beauty let’s take a close look at a couple of reasons why you should use a timber roof truss.

  1. Overall Costs

With a price tag that is more affordable compared to steel, a timber roof truss is the ideal cost-effective option for property owners who are on a tight budget, or who just want to save money. Other than that, most timber roof trusses can easily be installed without extra onsite carpentry space, storage buildings, heavy machinery, and other construction labour essentials – which means that this type of truss can also help you reduce overall labour costs and achieve a faster project completion time.

2.  Versatile Design

A timber roof truss boasts a wide variety of design options, which is something that steel roof trusses don’t have the luxury of having. Because of its outstanding design versatility, this type of roof truss can be effectively utilised to complement various architectural styles and building themes. And since timber is a kind of material that can easily be worked on, some roof trusses manufacturers give property owners the option to have their timber frame trusses and wall frames customised for both commercial and residential applications. Additionally, whether enhanced or left in its natural state, a timber roof truss can work as a complementary decorative piece for high ceilings or rustic décor themes.

4.  Energy Efficient

Timber is a material that features a natural insulating capability, which means that a timber roof truss provides ideal energy efficiency for homes and commercial spaces. But that’s not all there is to it, because the design and pattern of the truss installation also helps a lot with regulating internal temperatures. Since timber is usually installed in a triangular formation, it leaves large openings that help add insulation to a space.

Shopping for floors to install on your home? With the many flooring options that are available in the market, it can sometimes get very difficult to choose the perfect one for you, especially since each type of flooring has its own set of advantages.

This blog focuses on beautiful bamboo flooring. Giving you 4 reason why you should select this type of flooring for your home.

  1. They Are Generally Durable

While bamboo is widely known for being a sturdy material, not all types of bamboo floors have an equal level of durability, but they can get the job done all the same. If you are looking for a sturdy bamboo floor, be sure to get one with a light natural tone, as it’s the kind that didn’t undergo a carbonation process that can weaken the material.

However, when it comes to the most durable kind of bamboo floor, it has to be the strand bamboo floor, which is three times stronger than any other type of bamboo. This is because of the heating process it undergoes that involves using adhesives and resin to bond the grass into tightly woven strands.

2.  They Are Easy to Maintain

Most homeowners prefer to get the types of floors that are painless to maintain because it’s more convenient in the long run. And bamboo floors are among the flooring types that are really easy to clean and maintain, which can be done either lightly or thoroughly. How easy? Well, a simple soft-bristled broom and dustpan will do the trick for light cleaning, while a vacuum set in the ‘hard floor setting’ will be enough for heavy cleaning.

You can also use a mop, a hardwood floor cleaner, and warm water to clean the bamboo floors on a weekly basis. Be sure though to twist the mop thoroughly and look out for signs of over saturation because it can cause the bamboo floors to deform.

3.  They Are More Affordable Than Some Types of Hardwood Floors

Beautiful Bamboo FlooringBamboo floors are a cheaper alternative to the ever-popular hardwood floors, with their price varying on the thickness and brand. While they are actually not a cheap type of flooring, some bamboo floors cost less than maple or solid oak flooring. You can find a bamboo floor at a very low price per square foot, but quality is not guaranteed at that price point. So, if you’re aiming to get the most out of your money, there are good-quality bamboo floors that can be bought at mid-range prices.

4.  They Are Capable of Increasing Your Home’s Aesthetic Value

Bamboo floors have a sleek contemporary look that can elevate the aesthetic value of almost any home. Not only that, but bamboo floors also feature the clean lines of modern design, which means that they can act as complementary pieces to a room with a contemporary theme. Additionally, each board boasts distinctive characteristics and natural pattern striations that can add depth and style to your home.
