10 Amazing Real-World Locations for Fantasy Worldbuilding

Spotted a mention of this over at Dear Author and really too good not to share. Wow, I'd love to see them all, but that volcano in Chile is rather spooky.

Beautiful photos. I don't do well with heights, so naturally just looking at the photo of Tianzi Mountains, China, gives me vertigo!

That shot of the volcano in the Congo is amazing. I didn't know they had active ones over there.

Some of those pics are fantastic - the first one, Phi Phi, is very familiar as it was used in a Bond film - Man with the Golden Gun I think. The volcano certainly looks like something from Lord of the Rings, and that bridge could definitely also be from LotR or, as the writer says, Game of Thrones. Not quite sure I agree with the inclusion of the Vatican though, especially when it's swarming with tourists!
