A few I found either amazing beautiful or distinctively unique:

Torres del Paine, Chile
Serengeti, Tanzania
Cinque Terre, Italy
Jiuzhai Valley, China
Goreme NP, Turkey

What are the national parks (outside America) that impressed you most?

Parque Nacional Los Alerces (Argentina) - The most pristine lakes, forest and mountains you could ever imagine. Takes a bit of efforts to get there though. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractio...Patagonia.html

Taroko Gorge National Park (Taiwan) - Spectacular river gorge. Don't miss it if you are ever in Taiwan. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractio...k-Hualien.html

The Galapagos islands really wowed me. Visiting them is like stepping onto an alien planet, they're so different ecologically from everything else.

I was in the Galapagos in 1997 and it was really interesting ecologically. It is a good choice for a visit!

Banff is beautiful but too crowded in the summer. I've been there a couple of times.

Mljet in Croatia is spectacular. It's a group of pristine islands near Dubrovnik.

I'm not sure if it's actually a National Park--or if such a thing even exists as the entire island is more or less one giant park, but the hike up the Caldeira including a stop at Belvedere lookout in Moorea is incredible.

I'm sure there are others, but those are off the top of my head.

Kroger Natl Park in South Africa comes to mind.
But the term "National Parks" is not always easily translated to foreign countries. They don't always call them by that, and/or the protection is not equivalent. Obviously you mean protected natural areas. I mentioned Kroger above because it's about the easiest to qualify in "US national park" terms. But there are so many I have seen....
