Mt Rinjani (Indonesia)

The Great Wall (China)
The Great Wall of China was not built in one year and that’s one of the reasons why it carries an opulent history in the world. In the 17th Century, the Chu state followed by other states in Beijing built an 8,851km long wall; aiming at protecting China from Invaders. This empire is the reason why most people travel to China, to see the Vintage texture of each and every corner, watchtower, and the edge of the wall presenting another horizon as they walk along the Great Wall in sight as the sun dips down behind the Yan Mountain.
Taj Mahal (India)

He made no mistake, he built India’s rich historical and famous white marble mausoleum, located in Agra, as the epitome of Mughal architecture – a combination of Indian, Persian and Islamic influences aiming at honouring his love for his late wife and today this site in Western Uttar Pradesh, carries the spirit of deep unexplainable love.
