Eye in the sky
Taking a helicopter or airplane can be very convenient when you have to travel to remote places quickly, and want to enjoy some exclusive scenery.
Las vegas to the grand canyon,
Venezuela to angel falls, these are just some examples.
Some cities offer an eye in the sky through cable cars, or as in Las Vegas the mono rail. Barcelona has one such cable car that goes up to Montjuic Castle, all the while allowing you to enjoy the view from up high.
