  1. The Acropolis, Athens
  2. Lipu and Yaoshan Mountains, Guilin
  3. Lanikai Beach, Hawaii
  4. Eiffel Tower, Paris
  5. Grand Canyon, Arizona

Here's AskBrett's Alternative Top Five (OK, it's a few of my favourite spots)

  2. The Remarkables, Queenstown
  3. Charles Bridge at dawn, Prague (right)
  4. Wadi Ghul Canyon, Oman
