Peru is home to some amazing sights, aside from the famous Inca ruins of Machu Picchu, and you'd be well advised to take your time exploring the country.
Writing for Xinhua news agency, travel journalist Richard Meng has picked out a few spots that you will certainly enjoy discovering if you travel to the South American nation.
Possibly one of the most intriguing is the Nazca Township, where you can see one of the most astonishing reminders of the country's Incan past in the form of the Nazca Lines.
To fully appreciate these artistic relics, you'll need to take to the skies. From the ground, they simply look like odd-shaped trenches but from above, they transform into images of animals, insects and people.
Mr Meng commented that it's "amazing how these giant images could have been created with such precision" and you'll probably agree when you see the scale of them for yourself!
And from one of the driest regions in the country, you could travel on to the world's highest lake.
Lake Titicaca sits at an altitude of 3,906 m above sea level in the Andes and Mr Meng recommended taking a boat ride out to the floating islets that are home to the ethnic Uru people.
At 190 km long and 80 km wide, it's one of the largest bodies of water on the continent.
