7 Amazingly Blue Places Around The World You Need To See At Least Once
This is a bucket list like no other!
In all honesty, the colour blue deserves a lot more credit: it's gorgeous, it's easy to wear, and it's so awesome that Queen Bey herself used it for her baby girl
Clearly, blue is too awesome, and it is now the latest colour edition of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge!
In the spirit of celebrating everyone's favourite colour, here's a bucket list of the most breathtaking blue sights you should see at least once in your life:
1. Blue Lagoon, Iceland
This geothermal spa's trademark blue waters is rich in silica, algae and minerals but here's what most people don't know: the water is actually a milky white, and it gets its iconic blue hue from the sun's rays!
One of the reasons it manages to retain its crystal clear waters is due to its strict hygiene policy - a staff member will politely but firmly ensure you take a shower sans-clothing before stepping into the waters ;)
Bring along the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Blue Coral and you won't have to worry about getting the phone wet, thanks to its water resistance. Wait for the blue hour (around sunset) to really capture hauntingly beautiful shots that look right out of a fantasy film.
2. Smurf Village, Spain
This is the world's first and only official Smurfs village. Would you believe this formerly white village in Júzcar, southern Spain was painted blue as part of The Smurfs movie's promotional campaign? It was intended to be a temporary makeover but the villagers loved the bright blue walls so much it became a permanent attraction.
Selfie away without worrying about getting that dreaded 'Insufficient storage' prompt; Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Blue Coral's expandable memory allows you to use microSD card for additional capacity as and when you need to!
3. Great Blue Hole, Belize
This phenomenal deep blue hole off the coast of Belize began its formation during the Ice Age, when its initial caverns started being flooded with water, creating a 400-feet deep chasm.
Its intense depth makes it a challenge for deep divers to stabilise themselves when swimming upwards, and that is why The Great Blue Hole is reserved for only the most skilled divers.
4. Reed Flute Caves, China
What looks like a Photoshopped wallpaper is, in fact, a 1200-year-old natural attraction in Guilin. Spanning 240 meters long, the limestone caves' rich collection of stalactites and stalagmites are the mesmerising result of water erosion.
Fun fact: The caves got their name from the reeds growing just outside of it, which can be used to make flutes.
5. Blue Mosque, Turkey
No visit to Istanbul is complete without a visit to the regal Blue Mosque, which got its name from the 20,000 pieces of blue hand-painted tiles decorating it and also its blue domes.
As the day progresses towards the blue hour during sunset, the mosque takes on an ethereal glow as the sky darkens and lights bathe the domes and minarets in blue.
Don't worry about taking lowlight photos - Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Blue Coral's Dual Pixel Sensor with f1.7 lens will let you capture crisp, sharp details even in lowlight.
6. Ice caves at Vatnajökull Glacier, Iceland
This may look like the Tron version of the underworld but it is actually something much cooler (ba dum tss): this arrestingly beautiful attraction is actually an ice cave! Formed at the edge of glaciers, they get their supernaturally good looks from centuries-old ice that have since morphed into highly-pressurised glacier ice.
7. Emerald Pond, Thailand
You've probably seen this hidden gem flooding your news feed every time someone you know heads to Krabi. Tucked away in the lush, green Khao Phra Bang Khram Nature Reserve, the Emerald Pool is fast becoming a hotspot for its unusually turquoise hue.
The beautiful natural pool, filled with pure spring water, is the just the cooling dip you need after a soak in the nearby hot springs.
