Spectacular Drone Photos Catch Famous Places 'The Way They Were Designed To Be Seen'

Who needs a helicopter tour when you've got a drone?

This stunning photo series from photographer Amos Chapple features crystal-clear images of bucket-list tourist sites -- mostly in India and Russia -- that were shot entirely from a drone. The result is a heaping plate of EarthPorn that's anything but touristy.

"This is the way buildings were designed to be seen," he told BBC News. "This is their best side."

We're inclined to agree. Buckle up for the most dizzying virtual tour you'll ever take.
