Have You VISITED These UNIQUE Tourist Destinations?


We all love to travel, but there are some
places which are so amazing and refreshing that they tend to leave us with lifelong memories. These unique tourist places have that something
extra about them, something special which makes us want to experience them at least
once in our lifetimes. Let us take a look at some of the most unique
tourist places in the world! 14. Icehotel, Sweden. Let us be up front about it. This is not an experience for people who do
not like the cold. Because that is pretty much all you will get
here! The Icehotel is located in Sweden, about 124
miles above the Arctic circle! So obviously the best time to visit would
be the summer right? Wrong! The Ice hotel is actually open only in winters
and it embraces ice like never before. The hotel is made entirely from ice and the
guests even sleep on beds made from ice! It doesn’t lack in amenities though as there
is a church, main hall and a bar as well but they are all made from ice! Down to the glasses which are also carved
from ice! So if you even want to experience ice in all
its glory, this is definitely the place! 13. Sichuan, China. While some destinations in China have been
pretty well explored by the people, there are some hidden gems that not many know of. Sichuan is one such place and one of the major
things that attracts tourists here is the Leshan giant Buddha. It is basically a sculpture of Buddha which
has been carved into the mountainside. The sculpture was made in the 8th century
and measured over 233 feet tall! It is definitely one of the largest statues
of Buddha in the world. Apart from this, there is a lot of panda love
that can be explored in Sichuan with even hotels where the staff dress as pandas! 12. Dean’s Blue Hole, Bahamas. When looking for extreme adventures, people
often turn to underwater explorations. And if that is something that you do, or want
to do, the Bahamas is definitely one place you should visit. And not just because of the pristine waters,
but because of the Dean’s blue hole! This is basically a hole inside the water
that extends beyond the sea level. And while there are many blue holes in the
world, called such because of the blue light that can be seen when you are actually inside
them, the Dean’s blue hole in the Bahamas is actually the deepest in the world. It has a depth of 600 feet and is truly a
wonderful sight! 11. Mont St. Michel, France. Ok, so imagine a place which you remember
as being surrounded by water. However, the next time you visit you see that
it is surrounded by land! And before you go ahead and blame global warming,
which you should but just not in this case, this phenomenon is the result of tides! Mont St. Michel is a tidal island located
off the coast of Normandy in France. The highlight of the island is a Gothic abbey
that used to house prisoners during the French revolution. The abbey is definitely an interesting example
of Gothic architecture with pointy spires and an overall daunting look. Mont St. Michel is a good experience to add
on the list of your holiday experiences! 10. Lake Hillier, Australia. If you happen to come upon Lake hillier by
accident, you might just think that you have gone through a wormhole into some fantasy
Barbie world. Why? Because this lake is pink in colour and what
is even more amazing is that it maintains that colour throughout the year. The Hillier lake is located on the largest
island of Australia’s Recherche Archipelago and was first discovered in 1802. The reason for the striking pink colour of
the lake is that the water is pretty saline here and there are algae and bacteria species
here which love that salinity and give the lake its pink colour. It is truly one of the most unique places
on our planet. 9. Thor’s Well, Oregon. We are pretty sure that you got excited when
you heard of the name Thor. And while you may not see the hammer yielding
here, you can pretty much guess that some major was responsible for this creation! The Thor’s well, which is also known as
the Spouting horn, is actually a giant sinkhole. And when the tides are high, it offers a spectacular
view. The water flows into the sinkhole with great
speeds and then it shoots upwards with a great force. The view is truly spectacular, though you
must be a little cautious as during storms and high tides, it can be a little dangerous. 8. Spotted Lake, Canada. When you think of lakes, a great expanse of
water is generally what you imagine. Lakes are generally very serene and calm,
and while you still get that in the lake in the small town of Osoyoos in Canada, a great
expanse of water is not what you will get. In the summers, some of the water of the lake
evaporates and leaves behind small mineral pools, each of which takes on a different
hue. This land comes under tribal land though,
and you are not allowed to enter it, but it is still a great sight. In fact, one look at the Spotted lake and
you will understand why the Okanagan people consider it sacred! 7. Las Pozas, Mexico. This is one of the most interesting places
to be in the world. The reason for that is that a wealthy English
aristocrat decided to buy some land of about 20 acres in the jungles of Mexico and just
went crazy with it. There are many wonderful and unique sort of
structures that have been built here and if he set out to create a fantasyland, he sure
succeeded. There are a number of surreal structures built
here with very fascinating names like “house with a roof like a whale”. The name should pretty much be self-explanatory
and it should also be a clue as to why you should schedule a visit to this goofy, but
brilliant place! 6. Plain of Jars, Laos. If you ever get caught outside and have the
need for jars, hope that you get stuck in the Xieng Khouang province in Laos. The area is littered with groups of stone
jars which number between 1 and 100 in each spot. It is truly a spectacular and wonderful place
and will make you wonder why they are here. If you believe the local legends, then these
jars were used to brew rice wine for the giants. And if a giant did step out to take a sip
from these mythical jars, we wouldn’t really be surprised. However, a more believable theory that scientists
have come up with is that these jars were actually used in ancient funeral rituals which
kind of makes sense given that they are grouped together. Whatever the reason, it makes for one incredible
scenery! 5. Pancake Rocks, New Zealand. Sometimes, you can guess the exoticness of
a sculpture by the time it took to create them. And if you hold that to be true, then you
should definitely visit the Pancake rocks in New Zealand. Because this amazing structure has been carved
over a period of 30 million years! And the sculptor has been the ocean. Pancake rocks are basically formations of
limestone and sandstone which gathered over a period. But as the sandstone was softer than the limestone,
it eroded. What got left behind were structures that
resemble a stack of pancakes! These rocks can be found on the Western edge
of the Paparoa national park in New Zealand and it definitely an amazing experience, as
long as you do not try to eat these pancakes! 4. Cancun Underwater Museum. When you think of museums, you think of large
hallways with many exhibits. But this one is slightly different. While there are still many exhibits, the long
hallway is missing. That is because the museum is underwater,
as the name suggests! It is situated just off the coast of Cancun
and there are 400 life sized sculptures that you can feast your eyes on. Or at least as much as diving gears will allow
you to! The best part about it is that the sculptures
are made from materials that allow for the growth of corals as well! You can watch many sculptures here while you
swim along with the fish and it is an incredible experience. 3. Pamukkale Thermal Pools, Turkey. If you though infinity pools are all the rage
right now, well you wouldn’t be wrong really. But if you want to truly experience a wonderful
pool made by nature herself, do pack your bags for Turkey. Because here you can experience the Pamukkale
Thermal pools which look like fields of cotton balls in some places. Which is what the name means actually, cotton
castle! The thermal pools are basically made up of
natural hot spring water which cascades down several tiers. It is breathtaking sight and an even better
experience to just relax and swim in the pools. You would be forgiven for thinking that this
fancy looking natural pool was a part of some movie set! 2. Izu Islands, Japan. Imagine a place so bizarre that you have to
wear a gas mask to visit. And not, we are not talking about a world
war era torture chamber either. We are talking about an island in Japan, known
as Izu Islands, where it is mandatory to wear gas masks to visit. Izu Islands actually sit on top of a chain
of active volcanoes and eruption are pretty frequent here. And even when the volcanoes are not erupting,
they are releasing harmful gases almost continuously. Hence the need for the gas masks. So why would you want to visit? Because the landscape of the island is truly
stunning and some brave souls and noses do want to visit! 1. Alnwick poison Garden, England. So officially, this has to be the most dangerous
garden in the world. The reason is that most of the plants here
are poisonous. So why put them in a garden? Because someone thought kids would want to
know more about plants if they thought it was poisonous. Weird right? But then, that is how it is for the Alnwick
poison garden where you can find over 100 poisonous plants like the deadly nightshade,
strychnine, hemlock and others! Does that give you some new vacation spots
to add on your list? If so, do let us know in the comments section
