If you are a traveler, you already know that the world is a beautiful place. Whether you are looking for tranquility or adventure, you can choose between a wide range of amazing options. If you are a gaming fan, you might be looking for a location where you can play Bingo Hall. And if you travel frequently, you would want a unique location that offers something you haven’t experienced so far. That is why we prepared a list of wonderful and weird destinations that you should visit soon!
1. Cat Island
An island called Tashirojima is a part of Japan, and it is situated on the east coast. You can take a ferry to the island that has only 100 humans and thousands of cat residents. Inheriting the island with cats was a part of the government’s strategy to boost silk production by finding a way to deal with mice that were destroying silkworms.
Today, the cats are still there primarily for tourism. You can find a cat shrine on the island because the locals love these animals, and some accommodation options are cabins shaped like these amazing creatures.
2. The Catacombs
The Catacombs we singled out are the ones in Paris. However, these catacombs in the capital of France are not the only ones in the world, but they have a unique creepiness. Two and three centuries ago, the cemeteries were crowded, and the remains of many anonymous citizens ended up in the catacombs.
Today, the tunnels are a tourist attraction. That is why the French rearranged the bones and skulls to make the tunnel more appealing. Although, we have to admit that it doesn’t make it any less creepy.
3. Plain of Jars
If you ever visit Laos, make sure to find a day to check out the Plain Jars in the Xieng Khouang Province. You can find dozens of jars in a single area, and nobody knows their exact origin. Some believe that ancient priests used them in funerals and other ceremonies. If you ask locals, they will tell you that the giants used to live in Laos, and this is where the residents brew rice fine to give them.
4. Red Beach
Those who visit Panjin, China, should find time to head to the Red Beach. It might look like there is blood all over the place, but if you take a look, you will realize it is seaweed.
You might not be able to walk throughout the actual beach since it is not open to visitors, but the Chinese designed a wooden walkway that allows you to enjoy the view properly. The best time to visit the Red Beach is in late autumn when the color of the seaweed is bright red.
5. The Hand in the Desert
If you don’t mind high temperatures and can take the heat, we suggest heading to the Atacama desert in Chile. From Antofagasta, head south, and after traveling about 45 miles, you will reach the Hand in the Desert.
You should know that this is not a natural miracle: Mario Irarrazabal, a famous Chilean sculptor, designed this artwork. The idea is to present the loneliness that people might feel. That is why he picked a distant and desolate location for the sculpture.
Pamukkale is a Turkish term that stands for the Cotton Palace, and it is the right description of this site. You will find it in Southwest Turkey, at a location protected by UNESCO.
Those who visited Pamukkale claim that this is one of the most beautiful locations in the entire world. Watch the water falling from natural springs, or take a dip into a thermal pool while enjoying the stunning white travertine terraces around you.
7. Thor’s Well
If you are a fan of Norse mythology (or Marvel’s superheroes), this might be an attractive location. You will find Thor’s Well in Oregon, USA. It looks majestic and powerful, which is why you should keep your distance. The good news is that you can take a hiking trail to enjoy the view, but make sure that you are careful and avoid getting too close.
