3 Snow blankets parts of boats docked on the Rhine near Lahn, Germany. Besides gorgeous scenery, the Rhine presents an arresting overview of a busy working river connected by canals and tributaries to most of Europe.

4 Gondolas ply the waters of Venice's Grand Canal, one of Italy's most popular tourist attractions.

5 People walk past a bakery in the Montmartre district on an October day in Paris.

6 Tour guide Mario Rojas looks over an edge of "the abyss," 9,094 feet high, in Canaima National Park in Venezuela's Gran Sabana region. The mesas inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novel, "The Lost World," in which dinosaurs live on an isolated plateau in the Amazon.

7 Snow-covered trees provide a stark contrast to the fall foliage below in this scene from October at Cannon Mountain in Franconia, N.H.

8 People relax in the Blue Lagoon spa in Grindavik, Iceland. The Blue Lagoon was created in the mid-1970s, when some communities on Iceland's Reykjanes peninsula, in the southwestern part of the island, sought to harness heat generated by a geothermal area.

9 Rafters take a break from the rapids at Redwall Cavern in Marble Canyon near Grand Canyon National Park, Ariz. The popular spot along the Colorado Rover is about 33 miles from Lee's Ferry.

10 The wonders of Angkor Wat, the Khmer empire-built temple, lie at the end of a rainbow in northwest Cambodia. The world heritage site, built in the 12th century, is among more than 100 Buddhist and Hindu temples in the area that draw ever-increasing numbers of tourists, helping to rebuild the impoverished nation's economy.

11 Sand dunes stretch into the distance on the northern edge of the Sahara desert at al-Ramla in western Libya. Since the government of Moammar Gadhafi began its campaign to open its doors to the outside world, tourists are increasingly visiting Libya.

12 New Zealand's largest city, Auckland, is seen at dusk.

13 An iceberg gets a pinkish halo in the sunset in Ilulissat fjord, on Greenland's western coast. Located 155 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Ilulissat is home to 5,000 people, most of whom live off of shrimp and halibut fishing as well as the all-important tourism industry. Some 15,000 tourists visit the town each year, or about half of all those who visit Greenland.

14 A tourist looks out on the fog-shrouded valley below the Baeknyeong- Sa temple in Gangjin province in southwestern South Korea. South Korea is making a big effort to attract tourism.

15 The sun sets as visitors to the observation deck of the Empire State Building look south over the Manhattan skyline in New York City.

16 Kashmiri vegetable sellers gather at a floating market on Dal Lake in Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir state. Srinagar was once a popular destination for international and domestic tourists, attracting 720,000 tourists a year to the "Switzerland of the East." These days, a 13-year revolt against Indian rule by Muslim militants has turned Kashmir into one of the world's most heavily militarized zones.

17 Bicyclists travel through a narrow street in the old town of Kashgar in Xinjiang, China.

18 Two people travel across the Uyuni salt flat about 300 miles south of La Paz, Bolivia.

19 A diver swims with stingrays off Cayman Brac in the Cayman Islands.

20 A guide shows an ancient castle in Nalut in western Libya. Built into a rocky peak, the 800-year-old castle features seven stories of caves where people stored food to protect it from raiding enemies.

21 Peruvian people work at the Maras saltern. The saltern is considered an Incaic "hidden treasure," offering historical and natural beauty similar to the world-recognized Machu Picchu complex.

22 A couple stands in the "Door of No Return" on Goree Island off Senegal. The door in the courtyard of a centuries-old slave house is the passage that captured Africans walked through before boarding ships that carried them into slavery.

23 The sun sets over Mawenzi Peak on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Kilimanjaro's mystique beckons climbers of all skill levels because, though it's not a technical climb, it's the highest mountain in Africa at 19,340 feet.

24 Tenacious tourists brave a sandstorm at the Taj Mahal in Agra, India, during a June visit.
