Seeing These Popular Destinations From An Aerial View Is Almost Surreal. #7 Is Simply Breathtaking.

Even if you’re a frequent flyer, it’s doubtful that you’ve gotten to really enjoy a true bird’s eye view of a city or famous landmark. Most commercial planes tend to fly too high to get a real appreciation for anything, especially if it’s a cloudy day. Plus, thanks to flight routing and aisle seats, you may not have the best view even in clear skies. Luckily, this Reddit user collected some of the most impressive aerial shots of cities and landmarks from around the world, so sit back and enjoy the view.
