While the primary function of timber roof trusses is to support the roofing system, they can also elevate the aesthetics of an interior living space when they are left exposed during construction.

The rustic charm and elegance that goes with an exposed timber roof truss makes it an incredibly stylish type of design element for homes.

Also, if you’re fond of revamping your home from time to time, you will have a field day with the many astounding design elements and ideas that you can apply to an interior living space with exposed trusses.

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.
