Travel photographer reveals world’s most jaw-dropping places

A photographer has spent five years tracking down the world’s most jaw-dropping places to stay.

Aerial photographer Sebastien Nagy, 33, from Brussels, Belgium, travelled to more than 20 countries spanning six continents, to locate the stunning spots.

In one image taken in the United Arab Emirates, Nagy captured a remote desert retreat complete with a swimming pool that’s only accessible by trekking across the sand.

In another image, taken in The Netherlands, he photographed several houses on individual narrow islands all surrounded by water.

“I’ve always loved original points of view so I started photographing from rooftops until the arrival of drones,” Nagy said.

“Once, I flew and shot on a helicopter at 1km high above New York City.

“I spend a lot of time on Google Earth looking for places with an interesting or unusual aesthetic. My shooting days are usually quite simple. I shoot at sunrise and at sunset to capture the best light.”

Nagy photographed several interesting skyscrapers – many of which are in Singapore. The 27-storey Oasia hotel is famed for its rooftop infinity pool, while at the Park Royal Hotel, lush greenery surrounds the building creating a tropical oasis in the city centre.

In Bali, Nagy captured the eco-friendly Aura House – a five-star bamboo retreat in the jungle – and a nearby villa on the Munduk Moding Plantation.

Nagy said his five-year mission took him to 20 countries.

“I’ve visited all continents except Oceania,” he said.

“Many people look at my photos and discover new places that they did not know existed. I love being a part of that discovery.”
