Europe is probably the least diverse continent after Antarctica in most categories.

Outside of the Alps and some castles, what else is in Europe? It comes down to North America, South America, and Asia. I went with South America, but after rethinking it...it's North America.

What do you mean by diversity (or ´no diversity´- to be exact)? Landscapes or climate zones being too uniform or boring?

There are about 30 sovereign countries in Europe, from micro states to a big ones, from old monarchies to non-recognized separatist republics, all different. Various architecture, various cities. Iceland and Italy, Lisbon and Moscow. And you still say that´s all that uniform?
There are even different ´civilizations´ in Europe, you just look that´s not that few for a small continent.

Impossible, the continents are all vast and have different features. I chuckled when I saw Europe and North America leading the poll.

Yup. All continents are beautiful in their own way.

I always viewed this portion of the world to be very diverse and lots of islands... I love islands.
I suspect if you made a graph of where voters are from and superimposed it on the poll results, you'd get an almost 100% correlation.

Most likely, talk to any world traveler and most of them would say Asia is a more beautiful continent than Europe lol

Geographical, cultural, socioeconomic, climate, and genetic. In no way am I saying that all European countries are the same, they are just more similar than the countries found in other continents. Compare Canada, Costa Rica and Haiti. Compare Chile, Brazil and Colombia. Compare Pakistan, China and Israel. Compare Australia, Soloman Islands and Papua New Guinea.

Good point.

A lot more unspoiled wilderness in North America.
Wild creatures galore.

Just Canada alone has vast areas with little human presence,
including some areas where no man has ever been.

Most of Europe is very tame compared.

North America is the best for me.

Coastline ....California between Santa Barbara and San Francisco,
also coast of BC and Alaska, stunning.

Deserts ...Arizona Sonoran with giant Saguaro Cacti.

Mountains .....Rockies, Cascades, St.Elias, Sierra Nevada, etc....

Features.....The Grand Canyon, The Great Lakes, Everglades, Bay of Fundy....
