I was wrong, Asia does have the most beautiful mountains.
This really is no opinion, more like a fact.

It's true that Asia, and indeed many other parts of the world have beautiful mountains and other gorgeous scenery. But an important difference is that here in North America, especially in the American West, you don't have to go to "hell-and-gone" to appreciate 'em!

Mt. Shasta
Mt. Rainier
Yosemite
the PNW Coast
Banff
and The Grand Canyon (among many others)!

Best looking cities: Europe

-Best Mountains:Asia. North America and Asia for variety.

-Best beaches & coastlines: Beaches, perhaps Australia. rugged coastlines, tie between Europe (Scandinavia) and North America (Canadian west coast and Alaska)

-Best Deserts: North America for the variety and dynamics.

-Best rainforest/jungle: Can't touch the Amazon

-Best Polar/Subpolar regions (Arctic/Patagonia etc): North America

-Most unique or unusual landscapes: Asia, China in particular.

Great, thought provoking question.

Best Cities: Asia. Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore. I loved them all.

Best Mountains: South America. Yes, the Himalayas in Nepal were incredible, but I personally prefer the Andes.

Best Beaches: North America. Counting the Caribbean Islands as part of North America, they would get the nod. Thailand and the Philippines also have some spectacular ones.

Best Deserts: Africa. I only was in Morocco, but the Sahara is the greatest desert.

Best Rainforest: Ecuador's Amazon is like no where else I have been.

Best polar: I would never go anywhere near such a place.

Overall: It really a tough call between South America and Asia. I'll give south America the nod, but it could really go either way.
