1. Sichuan, China
Sichuan is a lesser-known province in the southwest of the country and situated in the Tibetan Plateau. This is a place of stunning visual beauty and the perfect combination of city and countryside life. You should head to province capital, Chengdu, for a spot of sightseeing and city life. But, one of the biggest draws of Sichuan is Leshan, city of the famed Giant Buddha. This is a giant statue from the 8th Century that is actually carved into the side of the mountain!
2. Qacha’s Nek, Lesotho
Lesotho is a fascinating country in the south of Africa, and a place so many people rarely take the time to visit. Known as the Kingdom of the Sky, Lesotho has the highest low point of any country on Earth – 4,953 feet above sea level! There are plenty of great attractions here, such as the gorgeous Maletsunyane Falls waterfall. But, the real treat is in the Qacha’s Nek District of the country, where you get to enjoy the beauty and grandeur of Sehlabathebe National Park.
3. Mont St. Michel, France
France is a stunning nation because it has the perfect balance of rural and urban locations. Mont St. Michel is a stunning tidal island commune located just off the coast of Normandy. Kissing the mouth of the River Couesnon, Mont St. Michel is home to a charming Gothic abbey, and is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Though Chișinău is the capital city, Moldova actually ranks as Europe’s least visited country, and this is why it makes our list.
