1. Easter Island
The ancient landscape of Easter Island was first discovered back in the 1700s. Since then, this attraction has fascinated tourists from all walks of life. Situated over 2,000 miles from the mainland, this Polynesian-inhabited island is home to a collection of Moai statues created by the indigenous Rapa Nui people. And while you’re there, make sure to stop by Father Sebastian Englert Anthropological Museum in Hanga Roa to learn more about Polynesian culture and traditions.
