Bilbury, England

Built in the 14th century, those stone houses along Arlington Road are the most photographed objects in this picturesque village. The Bilbury village is located in the Cotswold Hills area, a range of hills in the counties of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. The writer William Morris once called it “the most beautiful village in England” and I couldn’t agree more. Gorgeous place indeed!

Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland

If it’s your first time in Switzerland, forget about Zurich and other mainstream tourist attractions and go straight to this adorable village in the southern part of the country.  Lauterbrunnen is an old, super tiny yet super adorable village in a close proximity to Europe’s most famous glaciers such as the Tschingelhorn and the Rottal Gletscher.

Shirakawa, Japan

Located not far from the city of Takayama, this lovely Japanese village is on the list of the heritage of UNESCO. Shirakawa village is literally the snowiest part of Japan. The village is located in an area that is almost completely covered with dense woods. Most of its population lives in the valley of the picturesque Sokawa River. When covered in snow, the roofs of the houses resemble hands folded in prayer. Also, the unique design of the roofs prevents the snow from settling on top of the houses. Fun fact: warm attics are used for breeding silkworms in winter.
