10 Places To See Before They’re Gone! (INFOGRAPHIC)

*I wrote this post 3 years ago when I first started to blog and it’s very relevant for this time of year since it’s vacation time, so I decided to tweak it a bit and repost it. I hope you’ll find it interesting. Enjoy!

It’s vacation time and finding a place to go isn’t always an easy task. You can become overwhelmed by the multitude of destinations offered to you and looking at travel sites can be a real pain. This is enough to discourage the most tenacious of all travelers.

Choosing a different location than usual

For those of you who like to travel and want to choose a different location to go visit, there are destinations that probably aren’t going to be around for a long time. These places are all extremely beautiful and visiting them is a great alternative to the usual destinations.

And since climate changing, air pollution or other factors can be the cause of these disappearances, why not take them into consideration for your next trip.

A few examples…

Take, for example, Venice. Did you know that this romantic city could be sunk in less 70 years? This is true. The frequency of floods each year is so dramatic that it is causing the sea levels to rise to a dramatic point.

Another example is the Taj Mahal. Known as one of the world’s masterpieces, the India’s jewel of Muslim art took 21 years to complete and attracts 3 to 4 million tourists each year. But this majestic 17th-century mausoleum is expected to close in 5 years due to the massive visitors and air pollution that’s eating away its white marble facade.

Another example that really fascinates me is the Glaciers National Park. Only 100 years ago, there were as many as 150 around the world but in 2005, they only counted 27. And by 2030, they predict that they would be completely instinct, if not sooner.

But there’s more!

TripInsurance.com has put together an infographic with 10 places that could vanish in different periods of time and could be good destinations to consider visiting. You can check them out below and discover why they are set to disappear as well as their remaining time before they are gone for good.

Did you think that those places seen in the infographic could ever disappear? Would you consider going to visit one or more of those places one day? Personally, I’d love to visit the Taj Mahal or the Great Barrier Reef. But I’d like to know what you think, so please, feel free to comment below!

  1. I had no idea any of these places might actually disappear. Thanks for that revelation, Natalie! Venice is on the bucket list and I’m determined to get there. Three visits to Italy and never had the chance. Next time, for sure! India would be fascinating too, but we’re not getting any younger and that’s a long trip. In 1968, my mother and I took a bus trip through the Alps, from Zurich to Milan. Amazing scenery!

    1. Hi Debbie,

      Before I found this infographic, I had no idea either about the imminent disappearance of those beautiful places. That’s pretty sad!

      OMG, you visited Italy three times! That’s awesome! My youngest daughter just spent one month in Italy with her boyfriend. They absolutely loved it! I can see that you visited a lot of great places. I am taking the plane for the first time this Fall to go to San Francisco with my husband. I’m really excited!

      Thanks so much for stopping by and for your comment! Hope you had a great Thursday! 🙂

  2. Hey Nataly,

    This infographic consists of many places from all around the world which should be seen by everyone. I would like to go to the dead sea and the Madagascar.

    I am sure all the places have something special to experience. I live in India and the Taj Mahal is here. Many people come to see its beauty.
    Glad to know about many other places like it.
    Enjoy the day.

    1. Hi Cori,

      As you already know, I’ll fly for the first time this Fall to go to San Francisco and I’m a little nervous to take the plane. So I can totally relate when you say that you’re afraid of flying. And Venice, as well as the Taj Mahal look like beautiful places to visit.

      I am on vacation this week. It feels really good to stay at home and relax a little.

      Thanks for stopping by, gf! Hope you’re having a great week too! 🙂
