Your vacation is here, and you are looking for a place to visit that will provide you with all the tranquility and fun you have been looking for in a travel destination.
Luckily for you, there are lots of places to visit around the world, which will doubtlessly take your excitement to a whole new level.
But when you look at your bucket list, you realize that you have visited most of the places in your previous vacations. You don’t have an appetite for a wildlife safari in Africa, and you don’t feel like climbing Mount Everest once again.
Well, here is an idea – why don’t you go from ordinary to weird? Why not check out some out-of-the-ordinary attractions and draw fun from them?
There are thousands of bizarre places around the globe which you should visit at least once in your life. They include;
- The Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland
The Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland is one of the weirdest places to visit in the world. It is a creation of Mother Nature that occurred 60 million years ago as a result of a vast volcanic eruption that spewed a massive amount of molten basalt.
With time, the molten basalt solidified and contracted, thus creating 37,000 polygon columns and cracks that can be seen today.
What makes this destination bizarre is the fact that every aspect of it is geometrically perfect, and locals believe that the causeway was created by giants who roamed the land many centuries ago.
- Pamukkale in Turkey
This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is located in southwest Turkey. It is characterized by water which cascades from natural springs, which flows to the white travertine terraces, therefore forming picturesque thermal pools. In case you feel worn out, and you need to unwind as you get a stunning view of the ancient ruins of Hierapolis, this is a perfect place for a quick deep.
- Badab-e-Surt in Iran
If you want to experience nature at its best, then you need to check out the Badab-e-Surt in Northern Iran. This is a breath-taking destination that is home to beautifully crafted travertine terraces that were developed many centuries ago.
This place has two hot springs that contain different mineral properties. What makes them incredible and weird is the fact that they are reddish in color due to the high levels of iron oxide in water. Its, without a doubt, one of the places that should be at the helm of your must-visit list on your next vacation.
- The Tianzi Mountains, China
These amazing natural art pieces are found in Hunan Province in China. Apart from being covered in lush greenery, these limestone pinnacles are often cloaked in mist, regardless of the season of the year.
To traverse these mountains, you can take a cable car, or test your adrenaline by taking a nature walk on trails found along the pinnacles.
- Karni Mata Temple in India
There are thousands of temples across Asia and other parts of the world. What makes this one weird and interesting?
Well, the Karni Mata Temple is famous for one thing – rats! In many places across the globe, rats are regarded as rodent and are often treated as unwanted visitors. However, these animals are sacred in this place.
They are not only worshipped, but they are also given shelter in tribute to the rat goddess, known as Karni Mata. They are treated with the same reverence as horses during the Kentucky Derby annual race.
This temple is home to over 20,000 rats, which attracts millions of visitors every year. It’s an amazing place to take an “out-of-the-ordinary” wildlife safari. Don’t you think?
These are some of the places around the world that you can have a different kind of fun. You will get to see things you don’t see every day, learn their history, interact with the locals, and create beautiful memories.
