“A good selfie is when you successfully capture the feeling of that very moment!”
― Anamika Mishra
Millenials nowadays are starting to evolve the normal life. Each day a birth of a new term or word is just an ordinary thing for them. An example of which is the word SELFIE. This word means a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media. In other words, it is just simply a picture of yourself, like those in your ID’s.
But as people strive for more adventures in life, selfies are done wild. It is wild enough that they spend more money just to capture the most outrageous background for one selfie.
“With the selfies, a photographer has finally found his place in a photograph.”
― Amit Kalantri,
More and more people are still in search for the best place to take one good photo. A selfie has become a worldwide trend and is now becoming a must or an etiquette whenever you travel to some other places. With this, here are the 4 most scenic places to take your selfies with.

2.) Taj Mahal, India
“Not a piece of architecture, as other buildings are, but the proud passions of an emperor’s love wrought in living stones.”- Sir Edwin Arnold, English Poet
The Taj Mahal is such a perfect place to take a selfie. More than 3 million visitors flock to the white marble mausoleum each year just to visit this wonderful and marvelous place. Taj Mahal is India’s biggest tourist attraction and of course, it is the most photographed spot. So taking a selfie here is almost every traveler’s dream. And while your main goal here is just to take one selfie with Taj Mahal as your background, why not go for a little city tour. You can also explore your inner soul with some meditation like yoga session. India is the perfect place for some yoga, you know.
3.) Rainbow Mountain
“It takes sunshine and rain to make a rainbow. There would be no rainbows without sunshine and rain.”
― Roy T. Bennett,
Who would ever think that you can see a rainbow without little rain and sunshine? But if you are in great doubt then you better check the place for yourself. Known locally as Vinicunca, Peru’s Rainbow Mountain is a sight to be seen. The incredible stripes of reds, yellows, blues, and purples are thought to be caused by the erosion of sedimentary stone of different mineral composition. Access is limited by horseback or foot, so leave the stilettos at home and pack your comfy walking shoes, because you’re in for an overnight hike.
4.) Wormsloe Plantation
“You must go on adventures to find out where you truly belong.” -Sue Fitzmaurice
If your soul wants some inner peace then you better check Wormsloe Plantation. This 822-acre historic site near Savannah is lined with 1.5 miles of live oak trees dripping with Spanish moss. It is one of the most photographed places in Georgia and when you see it in person, you will understand why. Pictures will be just an understatement of the place because what you see in person will never be the same with those photos. The place is more like a heaven on earth version of a plantation. You will never stop with just a single selfie in this place.
You might also find it looks familiar because Miley Cyrus filmed part of the movie The Last Song here. And, if you look really, really far in the distance, you’ll see NeNe Leakes nibbling on a peach.
