What is the most beautiful place on Earth?

Glencoe_scottland The World Heritage List includes 851 properties forming part of the cultural and natural heritage which the World Heritage Committee considers as having outstanding universal value.

From an interesting Ask Mefi thread – “What is the most beautiful place on Earth? I'd like to make plans to go there”

Also: "I am not a blind person… But I did a sort of research project at one point where I tried to "go blind" for a week. I had a friend who was blind who actually suggested it when I was asking about what it was like…"

The phrase “HURF DURF BUTTER EATER” was introduced to Metafilter on February 16th, 2005, in the text of an Ask Metafilter question relating in part to weight issues. Later that year, the phrase gained visibility on the site thanks to a discussion of the original use, and Metafilter users began repeating and modifying the phrase in a variety of ways on the site.

Some World Heritage sites area in better shape than others. National Geographic Traveler published an assessment of some of the most popular ones here. Norway's fjords rate high, but Kathmandu does not:

island of moorea, french polynesia, 12 miles off tahiti. when i left there, i was standing with a small group of about 15 people waiting for a small plane to take us over to papeete and then to our various homes around the world. i felt a bit foolish after having a last look around and found myself in tears, then realized that everyone else was crying too.

That really is a strange beach in NZ. Personally I might vote for somewhere on the coast of Costa Rica
