8 Places to Visit Before You Die

Long Island is a special place to call home sweet home, but it’s merely a pebble in the ocean that is planet Earth. From natural wonders to man-made masterpieces, there are endless possibilities when it comes to must-see attractions. Don’t let hesitations limit your explorations any longer (the bagels and Sunday sauce will still be here when you return). Walk, swing and fly in a wanderlust wonderland at eight breathtaking places.

1- Sea of Stars on Vaadhoo Island: Maldives

Long Islanders who live for after-dusk walks on the beach should consider Sea of Stars on Vaadhoo Island their new heaven-on-earth. Visitors to the paradise island can saunter along the shoreline, look into the ocean and see the stars. The secret is this: phytoplankton–the marine microbes–are bioluminescent and emanate the blue glow. The species create the most romantic natural lighting in the world.

2- The swing at the “End of the World:” Baños, Ecuador

Even those who enjoyed playgrounds as a child have never had a swing experience quite like this. At the edge of Ecuador a decrepit tree house (casa del árbol) overlooks an active volcano. The swing has no harnesses, inviting only the bravest adventure-seekers to take the ride of their lives and catch a breathtaking view.

3- Salar De Uyuni in the Potosí and Oruro departments: Bolivia

The world’s highest salt flat at 11,975 feet above sea level is also the largest at 4,086 square miles. Travelers should make like the late Debbie Reynolds and sing (or at least visit) in the rain—during rainy season, it transforms into a giant mirror of the sky.

4- Zhangye Danxia landform: Gansu, China

Known for otherworldly colors, this rainbow landscape resembles an imaginative oil painting. Over the tops of rolling mountains, the rainbow formation is the result of red sandstone and mineral deposits being pressed together for over 24 million years.
