Peter and Paul Cathedral

Built on Zayachy Island, between 1712 and 1733, the cathedral's bell tower is the world's tallest Orthodox bell tower. It also acts as a lightning rod protecting the cathedral.

The cathedral houses the remains of most of the Russian emperors and empresses from Peter the Great to Nicholas II; including Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia for 34 years.

The Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg and Related Groups of Monuments was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1991.

Boy Buddhist in Bodh Gaya

Bodh Gaya's Mahabodhi Temple gained its UNESCO World Heritage Listing in 2002.

A religious site and place of pilgrimage, Bodh Gaya (in Bihar State) is where Gautama Buddha is said to have obtained enlightenment; after meditating under the Bodhi tree, for 49 days.

For Buddhists, Bodh Gaya is the most important of the main four pilgrimage sites related to the life of Gautama Buddha; something akin to Mecca for Muslims.

Bodh Gaya is about 12km from Gaya City, where overnight trains connect with Kolkata (Calcutta).

The best time to visit is November to March; with December and January considered the high season.

Champagne Sunset in Darwin

What better way to enjoy nature's lightshow than clinking a glass of sparkly with the one you love.

The bubbles rise as the sun sets and the colour of romance reflects in the loving couple's eyes.

Sunsets in Darwin are big business; from sunset cruises to the food and craft Sunset Market at Mindil Beach.

Of course you can catch a glorious sunset for free just about anywhere along Darwin's shoreline; East Point, Fannie Bay, along The Esplanade and down at the wharf.

For palm trees, head out to Nightcliff.
