13 Best Places To Take A Selfie
By the time the Oxford English Dictionary incorporated the word ‘selfie’, it had become a global phenomenon if one may say so. In fact, it’s not surprising to know that some universities are offering courses on ‘selfie-taking’ nowadays!
How amazing is this phenomenon! Thanks to all the technology that provided us with these absolutely great front cameras to take those perfect, ‘profile-picture’ selfies. And once you have the best front cam, and a great selfie stick, all you need is that spot where you click a selfie which is worth cherishing (and of course, worth 200 likes on Facebook!)
So today, we take you on a ride to some of the best destinations for clicking a selfie:
1. Tower Bridge, London
The British are always known for being class apart and so is Britain! In the centre of London, Tower Bridge is one of the most popular destinations for taking a selfie. This iconic bridge is built upon the river Thames and is very close to the Tower of London. Its red, blue and white colours not only compliment the blue waters of the river, but are also symbolic of Queen Elizabeth’s Silver Jubilee in 1977(which is when the bridge got these colours).
2. Chittorgarh Fort, India
One of the largest forts in the Indian subcontinent, Chittorgarh has seen blood, battles, fights, wars, and spirituality (Mira Bai was from Chittor) too. The fort also hosts some beautiful light and sound shows in the evenings. One might need some help to click a selfie here as the scenery is huge, but you have your selfie stick right?
3. Disneyland, Florida
We all grew up listening to Sleeping Beauty and Snow White stories. Even now the idea of spending your days without worrying like an adult is a chance we all crave for.
Disneyland does exactly that for so many adults everyday. Though a large number of kids visit the Disneyland in Florida every day, the number of adults is no less. One finds 50 year olds clicking selfies with Minnie Mouse and little babies wanting to get a selfie with Cinderella.
4. Cinque Terre, Italy
Literally meaning “the five lands”, Cinque Terre is no less than a treasure for Italy. It’s situated in the north of Italy and is a popular spot for both the locals and the tourists alike. The place is replete with colorful terraces and scenic landscapes. Now, a perfect selfie is yet another reason for travelling to Italy, isn’t it?
5. Cape Town, South Africa
This is the place where Nelson Mandela made his first speech as a free man. Yes! But Cape Town is also known for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The city has a Mediterranean climate and is perfect to click those beach photos. In fact, at Boulder’s Beach in Cape Town, you could even find some penguins to share selfie with you!
6. Colosseum, Rome
Being one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Colosseum is the place for selfies. The Flavian Amphitheatre is one of the greatest amphitheatres ever built and is considered one of the most brilliant pieces of architecture. Built between 72 AD to 80 AD, Colosseum is the most beautiful and historic location to take a selfie.
7. Empire State Building, New York
This 102-storey tower with a height 1,250 feet is located in Midtown Manhattan in New York. The New York skyline looks splendid from the top of the Empire State Building. So now we know why Ted Mosby in How I Met Your Mother always made such a huge deal about this architectural masterpiece!
8. Taj Mahal, India
Listed among the Seven Wonders of the World, the Taj Mahal in India would top this list. The symbol of undying love surely leaves the spectator mesmerized and is the perfect place for a quick selfie. The great monument is loved by selfie takers from all over the world.
9. Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
Amid southwest Bolivia lies the world’s largest mirror, the legacy of a salt lake going dry and leaving behind a landscape of bright-white islands. Considered one of the most beautiful sightings in the world, Salar de Uyuni is the one place where heaven meets earth.
10. Pont Des Arts, France
A place featured in most romantic films and last seen in Queen, finds its spot amongst the top six places in our list. For years couples have been attaching love locks with their first names engraved to the railing and throwing the key into the Seine River, thus showing their eternal love for their partner.
11. Hollywood Boulevard, California
One of the most clichéd places to click a selfie with your favorite “stars”. Situated in the Hollywood city, the place offers the true essence of the entertainment industry. Place not to miss for sure – The Walk of Fame.
12. Burj Khalifa, Dubai
The tallest manmade sky scraper can surely give an excited selfie taker a breathtaking and mesmerizing view. There is a sky lobby at the 123rd floor of the building where one can capture the expanse of the entire city of gold. It was last seen in MI4 as well.
13. The Great Wall, China
Who needs “Space” when you can go to China and take a wonderful selfie alongside this man-made marvel. The wall of China stands tall as a symbol of China’s everlasting endurance and is a treat to the eye.
