Overall, I'd go for Africa. A continent routinely underrated on this and most forums. Breathtakingly beautiful.

These couple of photos are from only one small patch of African. Roughly a 200 square mile area. Now extrapolate that across the whole continent to give you some idea (could post much more, but don't want to bombard the page with photos):

No disrespect to any of the other continents but personally, Oceania is gorgeous.

The Pacific Islands are the most breathtaking to me. Their individual cultures and stories and not to mention the customs and pirate history make them magical. On top of that, the Pacific Ocean being the biggest ocean makes all of the diversity of these islands so magical.

The scenery and wildlife is breathtaking and amazingly, while many of these nations have a history of cannabilism, they are also amongst the most welcoming in their customs, song and dance.

Bora Bora in Tahiti is absolute heaven on earth followed closely by New Zealand, Samoa and Hawaii.

No question.

BTW Australia is a whole other story.

When it comes to cities, Europe, but when it comes to everything else i'd say South America as it has everything.

I think the people mistook the poll as "what continent are you from?" or something (how is North America winning over Africa and South America?). I sense some kind of bias in here. Anyway...

-Best looking cities: Athens, Paris, Dubai, Sydney, Hong Kong, Venice, Naples
-Best Mountains: New Zealand
-Best beaches & coastlines: Australia
-Best Deserts: North Africa & Australia
-Best rainforest/jungle: South America (Brazil)
-Best Polar/Subpolar regions (Arctic/Patagonia etc): Don't really care about those
-Most unique or unusual landscapes: Australia's Ayer's rock & China's mountains and forests
