We all have our opinions, sorry if you disagree with them

Its not a fair contest because all the countries are of different size so its easy for the big ones to win.

I wish it was a matter of opinion most the time, but the benchmarks and then choices used don't agree .

It depends, are we talking about overall beauty, or the number of beautiful places that they have?

If it's the latter, then countries such as the the US, Canada, Russia, Brazil, China, etc. Deserve to be near the top because of some of the incredibly diverse and vast landscapes that they possesses, although that is a natural consequence of being such large nations. The flip side is that they also have large areas that very uninteresting.

As has already been alluded to here, there are many nations that perform better in terms of overall beauty. Since a larger overall percentage of their land mass could be considered "beautiful".

If I do the naming, ignorance will forever remain. I've posted pictures on the continent thread before.

My favourite is of course my own country, Ethiopia

Naming the most beautiful countries is a bit same to name the most beautiful women/men or the best music. Everyone have their own taste. I like lush temperate forests, mountains, beaches, lakes and four seasons. I don't like tropical rainforests or deserts. For those reasons countries like Egypt or Brazil can never make my list, however stunning areas they might have.

1. China (some weird landscapes not found elsewhere)
2. Colombia (mountains, deserts, jungles, beaches, glaciers, you name the landscape Colombia has it)
3. Peru (Breathtaking views, the Andes are a sight to behold)
4. New Zealand (Looks like the lord of the rings)
5. USA (has varied landscapes that can be quite impressive)
