Meet The Best Views in the World

We all love a bloody good view. 'Oh, it's lovely!' we exclaim at the sight of a rolling vista, a towering skyline, or a staggering sunset, before we greedily cram it into our camera and set it as our badly cropped Facebook cover photo to make our friends jealous.

It's no wonder that views are so frequently used as destination sellers. Heck, we plaster every inspirational article we publish with jaw-dropping views designed to blow the dust out of your wallet.

Here are thirteen of the best views in the world. You might be completely bankrupt by the time you reach the end.
