to each their own, some people like natural beauty, some people like architectural beauty, some just like bright and shiny lights flashing about all willy nilly.

Did that guy seriously put a photo of Las Vegas as a beautiful place?


If your good enough at math to actually play in casinos in a conservative way you can hold even steven for hours during which the non stop bring you FREE beer.

Any place where being good at math rewards you with booze is beautiful in my books.

I found that living in Canada makes it easy to overlook just how nice this country actually is. I moved to England for school, and the time I spent away really helped me appreciate how incredible BC is (once I moved back).

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

There's so many beautiful places in the world it's impossible to narrow down to one single country. Canada/USA both have a lot of natural eye candy (rockies, grand canyon etc) but there's also places all over the world with beautiful mountains and/or architecture (Europe), tropical islands (South Asia) wild life (Africa), waterfalls, deserts, plains...

How the hell could you possibly pick ONE place?!

I know you can't pick one place that's the very reason I said that you can pick multiple places lol.

@Avelanch that second pick of Tahiti is amazing! I love the tropical island with the bright blue water and mountains in the distance. Some really good pictures so far!

Also yeah there does seem to be just a bit of bias in the poll lol.

Considering Canada is second largest it has a bit of an unfair advantage in the beauty department but yeah its a pretty stunning country with lots of diversity.

BC in itself is one of the most beautiful parts of the world. Diverse as well.

Ive been fortunate enough to see many beautiful places around the world and beautiful for different reasons.

It is not my intent to get in circular arguments with anybody. The reason i have avoided saying anything specific is because i know you or someone else will attempt to find an alternate explanation to my points which i intern will have to defend. I see no point in getting involved with the circular argument that is already well under way in this thread. I simply intended to voice my opinion on the subject. In the end either you accept the possibility of corruption and conspiracy or you don't.

Also i find your comments to be very childish. Does taking what i say out of context, paraphrasing and misquoting it make you feel good about yourself? Grow up.


Logic at its finest.

the coasts of canada are incredibly beautiful, but the entire middle is super boring and ugly. a way higher percentage of canada is ugly than beautiful.

i've been to a lot of beautiful places, but nothing tops Northern Cali for me.

I would not consider Canada one of the most beautiful countries in the world. BC is the most beautiful place on Earth, but once you leave the rockies it starts getting pretty drab.

But then again, there's beauty to be found in everything.

North Idaho is great (Because it's so much like BC) but NorCal has some really scenic places too.

Obviously this whole thing depends on what you like. I'll gladly take another trip to Great Bear Lake before traveling almost anywhere on the other side of the world (Scotland would be my exception... I've ALWAYS wanted to go there.)

My parents were just at Zion National Park, and it looks pretty amazing. Which is slightly annoying, because it's somewhere I've always wanted to go to and I have no idea when I'm going to get the chance. The Angels Landing hike is something I want to do before I die.

I have no idea.

The UK option is very vague. Really depends where you are. I've never been to Australia, but it looks much nicer than here. I should (if everything goes to plan) be moving to Brisbane next year.

Filled out the poll with a few other countries.

Hmm so many votes for Canada, yet there hasn't been one picture posted to prove it. :P

Nice pics of Idaho and No Cal, here's another reason that Northern California is very nice.

South Korea is the most beautiful country in the world because it is the birthplace of Gangnam Style.

P.S. I'm not Korean and I've never been there, only Youtube.
