#2 The Avenue Toward Heaven

In Chinese culture, it is believed that Heaven has nine places. The number nine is considered a lucky number that links things to Heaven so the road was built to have 99 twists and turns.

The tourist attraction has been featured in many films, television shows and tourist gifts like postcards.

#7 Vaadhoo Island

One of the most famous pictures of the Vaadhoo Island comes from a night where dots of light seemed to float to the shore. They made the coast look like it was covered in stars. At night, it is not uncommon for bioluminescent microbes called phytoplankton to be seen along the coast. Though even without them, the night sky on this beach is beautiful and the sky seems to be cluttered with stars.
