Canada Ranked Second Most Beautiful Country in the World

Second the best, right?

The MIX Now

In a new list by the Rough Guides, readers of the British-based travel outlet cast their votes to determine the most beautiful country in the world.  Fortunately for all of the Canadians out there, you’ll be glad to hear where we ranked.

After calculating the votes, the blog created a list of the top twenty most visually-pleasing places.

If you’re wondering where Canada placed, we got second.  Why? According to the Rough Guides, our country got kudos for our “mixture of raw beauty and majestic landscapes.”  And of course, our Instagrammability factor is off the charts.  Wilderness in the Yukon, mountains in British Columbia, and city-life in Toronto and Montreal.  Our country’s got it all.
