3. The Atoll from Outer Space, the Maldives, Indian Ocean

The Atoll from Outer Space, the Maldives, Indian Ocean

Looking like the setting for a sequel for the movie Interstellar, a scary water-logged world floating somewhere in outer space, the 26 natural atolls of the Maldives are by contrast very friendly and one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

You'll only encounter welcoming locals with big smiles, not aliens keen to eat you, that's a promise!
