Remarkably diverse, fragile, and threatened. That's how to sum-up the 1,092 unique UNESCO World Heritage Sites dotted across the world on every continent except Antarctica. Most are on the list because of their cultural significance, some are natural wonders, but all of them have one thing in common; they're fabulous locations for photography that any photographer should consider visiting. 

These places are so much a list of some of the most photogenic places on earth so that the ever-growing list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites is something of a bucket list list for many photographers.
