25 Breathtaking Bird’s Eye View Pictures of the World

Like many things in life, traveling is all about perspective – and these images show an amazing perspective! How many of these places have you visited? How many would you like to visit? Do you prefer the ground perspective, or the bird’s eye view? Leave your opinions in the comment section!

Niagara Falls

Quite possibly the most famous waterfall in the world, Niagara definitely deserves its fame.

Barcelona

Barcelona is known for its bohemian neighborhoods, small windy streets and of course, its beaches, but much of the city actually looks like this – ordered boulevards and posh residential areas. You can get a similar view from Tibidabo, the mountain overlooking the Catalonian capital.

Central Park NYC

Most cities are urban islands in a green landscape, but some cities are so big that they actually have green islands inside the urban area. Yes, I’m looking at you, New York.

Maze at Longleat, England

Longleat is an English stately home and the seat of the Marquesses of Bath. Longleat Safari Park opened in 1966 as the first drive through safari park outside Africa, and is home to over 500 animals, including giraffe, monkeys, rhino, lion, tigers and wolves.

Mexico City

Mexico City is huge – but you need to see it from above to even get a sense of just how huge it is.

Venice

Venice – the city built on water.

Amsterdam

Another city known for its canals, Amsterdam is known and admired for its unique design.

Namib Desert

Opposites attract? The hot, dry Namib Desert meets the Atlantic ocean.

Chicago Skyline

Tulip Fields, The Netherlands

Even as you know Netherlands is the country of tulips, it still surprises you to see the amazingly colored fields.

Bern, Switzerland

A view our Facebook friends are definitely familiar with, the Swiss Capital Bern looks delightfully charming.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

The real life King’s Landing, Dubrovnik is where much of the Game of Thrones series was filmed, with its picturesque, citadel appearance.

Paris

Meskendir Valley, Turkey

Meskendir Valley in Capadoccia, Turkey, is famous for launching balloons over it.

Tokyo

Speaking of huge cities, Tokyo just seems endless. How such a giant city can be so orderly is beyond be.

Capetown, South Africa

Some cities have the size and order, other cities have the swag – Cape Town, a large city in its own right, severaly contrasts with Tokyo.

Moscow

Moscow may be the Red City, but in this picture, it just looks gray.

Athens

Vancouver

Male, Maldives

A modern day Atlantis, Male, the capital of the Maldives, is a city you really should visit at least once.

Seattle, USA

Giza Pyramids

It always strikes me to see just how close the Pyramids are to the city – I mean, you’d picture them somewhere in the desert, but they’re right at the edge of modern civilization.

Bac Son Valley, Vietnam

The Bac Son Valley is so beautiful it doesn’t even look real.

Marina Bay, Dubai

Not a fan of Dubai and their wasteful project myself, but you got to give it to them – they built grand, and they built beautifully. Will the city stand the test of time… that’s a different question, but the Marine Bay does look stunning.

Rio de Janeiro

How else could we finish this list other than with Rio in the sunset?
