Where In the World?
Where in the world is this stunning river and mountain view?
If the river pictured for Where in the World nine is on your bucket list, you may already be familiar with its name. You may even know the name of the country where this photo was taken if you also recognize the mountains in the background. If not, below are some clues to help you figure it out.
Feel free to comment with the number of clues you needed. If you’re really stuck, you can click the photo to find out.
Clue 1: This breathtaking scene was captured in a country that has been off most people’s travel bucket list for a while. However, following the recent lifting of travel restrictions and relaxing of tourism boycotts, travellers can now visit this country. So if you have guessed where it is, you can put it on your travel bucket list.
Clue 2: The country where this particular fishing boat scene was shot is filled with stunning Buddhist monuments, beautiful Southeast Asian countryside, and a capital city that has yet to be spoilt by tourism.
Clue 3: This river is the 12th longest river in the world and is also the border between several Asian countries. A cruise along this river will take you to at least two of these Asian wonders. Have you got it yet, without Googling?
Clue 4: The country in which this photo was taken changed its name in 1989. You may be more familiar with its former name and the cats that originate from the region close to its borders with one other Asian nation. No Googling!
