The Most BIZARRE Tourist Attractions in the World!

The Most BIZARRE Tourist Attractions in the World!

– Here’s a fun fact you might not know. The world is really weird. Honestly, not that much
surprises me anymore, after eight years and 650 videos, but once in a while little gems
drop that make me go “what?” The world is absolutely
full of freak shows, which means that there’s
a market for weird stuff. So a bunch of people decided to create some attractions to attract those people. And when you see what these
are, if it’s even possible, you’re going to think that
the world is even weirder. Here are the 10 most bizarre tourist attractions in the world. Number 10 is the largest chest of drawers. Okay, we’re off to a good start. Whether it’s the world’s largest apple or the largest statue of Elvis, people seem to love visiting
the biggest versions of things. Attempting to capitalize on this fact, along with trying to prove that they are the home furnishings capital of the world, which I have no idea why
they would want to do that, High Point, Carolina, unveiled the World’s Largest Chest of Drawers. And if that sounds ridiculous
to you, it’s ’cause it is. This six-meter-tall structure
was completed by the 1920s by High Point’s Chamber of Commerce and features a pair of
larger-than-life socks that hang out of a drawer. Then, in 1996, the city
renovated the chest, transforming it into an 11.6-meter-tall Goddard Townsend bureau, because it’s, you know, a lot cooler, I guess. Sadly for the city, a local retailer, Furnitureland South, stole the record with their own 24-meter-tall
chest of drawers down the road. Yeah, that’s the way to get popular, just outdo each other
with weird tall stuff. It’s just buncha winners down there. Number nine is a giant ferris wheel. Okay, okay, ferris wheels. They’re supposed to be tall, I get it, but this one’s just bupadupdup. Built in an attempt to bring attention and traffic to the town
of Dudley, England, this giant ferris wheel hit a sour note with both locals and visitors, and has been mocked as Britain’s
worst tourist attraction. The ride is 35 meters tall and offers panoramic views
of the surrounding area. Now, that sounds nice,
except the only problem is the area is the town of Dudley, and it’s mostly dirty stone buildings and miserable-looking rooftops. Oh, honey, honey, look at this. It’s a bunch of rats eating another rat. Local government officials
believe that the ride, which was erected in March of 2016, would put their city back on the map but wound up being laughed at by surrounding cities and newspapers. Though a handful of people do still enjoy riding the ferris wheel,
paying four and a half pounds basically to see what the roof of the town’s shopping center looks like, everybody else is just not for it. Man, dirty rooftops? Sign me up, I’m flying out tonight! (laughs) Number eight is the Gum Wall. If you crawl under pretty
much any desk in high school, you’re almost guaranteed to find a few discarded wads of chewing gum. But if you’re in downtown
Seattle, Washington, you might just find yourself
with a whole wall of it. The Market Theater Gum Wall
was started sometime in 1993, when people waiting in
line to enter the theater stuck their used gum
and sometimes even coins to the outer brick wall. That’s called vandalism! Though it’s been cleaned a few times, once to prevent structural issues with the bricks being broken down, today the gum stretches for over 15 meters with little of the original
brick showing through. It’s actually considered a local landmark, and people have traveled great distances just to put their nasty wad
of num-nums on the wall. Some people even create gum sculptures and adhere it to that. Delicious! Number seven is the
Restroom Cultural Park. Ah, there never seems
to be a restroom around when you need it, am I right? Unless, of course, you’re at an art exhibit
devoted to toilets. Incredibly, such things do exist, and one of the most ridiculous is in the city of Suwon in South Korea. Officially known as
Restroom Cultural Park, this complex features toilet-themed paintings and sculptures, including a long path complete
with humanoid structures in various squatting positions that leads to a large building
shaped like a toilet bowl that furthermore houses
the main exhibition hall. Opened in November of 2012, the park is dedicated to the former mayor, Sim Jaedeok, who locals called Mr. Toilet, as he’d fashioned his own
house to look like one. I’m not saying this guy
had mental health issues. I’m sure he was a great guy and all. But he lived in a toilet. And these people elected him
to run their city or town. So, um, yeah. South Korea, you just keep on
keepin’ on with the weirdness. I’m just, I’m-a stay here. So okay, good luck with the toilet houses. Number six is Manneken Pis. Imagine, just for a moment, that the symbol of your city or region is known for a little naked
boy urinating into a fountain. Hm. Yeah, that’s regal. Very nice. Well, if you live in Brussels, Belgium, it’s probably easy to do,
because it’s a reality. That’s right, a bronze
statue called Manneken Pis, and I really hope it is pronounced piece, which is Dutch for “little man pee,” stands in the center of
the city and is considered the best-known symbol for
the people of Brussels. The artwork was originally
created by Jerome Duquesnoy sometime between 1618 and 1619. Though it’s only 61 centimeters tall, it’s said to embody the people’s humor and independence of mind. Yep, nothing like some pee
to embody free thinking. If you, like many others,
are for some reason drawn to visit Mannekin Pis, you may be lucky enough to see it in one of its many costumes, which include a judo outfit, sailor’s uniform, and even Dracula. That’s actually a really good question. Does Dracula pee? ‘Cause he does drink a lot of blood. That’s just a really disturbing thought. Number five is the
largest smallest largest. Erica Nelson has always been obsessed with the world’s largest
version of things. So much so that she created her own, the world’s largest souvenir plate, in her property in Lucas, Kansas. But obviously that wasn’t enough for her, as her love for the other
things that are the largest drew her to create her own
attraction in her own van. Specifically, the world’s
largest collection of the world’s smallest versions of the world’s largest things. Did you catch all that? Basically, Nelson visits an attraction such as the world’s largest washboard, and then recreates a tiny
version of that exact replica, so that she has the smallest version of that specific installation. It’s a bit confusing,
but it does draw people who want to see the
world’s largest things, though smaller, in one convenient place. I know that was a mouthful
and a little confusing, so let me give you the
T-L-D-R shorter version of it. Uh, crazy lady creates the smallest things out of the biggest things. Got it? Cool. Number four is Loveland. Officially known as Jeju Loveland, this attraction is an
outdoor sculpture park located on Jeju Island in South Korea. To get the full experience, you’d have to walk around an area the size of two soccer fields, the whole time admiring
and even interacting with the various installations. Of course, the whole time you’d
be witnessing a lot of love. Being made, that is. Mm-hm, people… Yep, you heard that right. Loveland is an artful
and educational place where people go to
experience second-hand sex. Opened on November 16th, 2004, the park features 140 sculptures of humans in various sex positions, as well as film showcases about sex, and even interactive pieces where visitors are
encouraged to push buttons, turn cranks, or perform some other actions to make the sculpture perform. Yeah, this one’s not for the kiddies. Just take ’em to Disneyland. Do not take ’em here. Number three is the Thing. Driving along the interstate between Phoenix, Arizona,
and El Paso, Texas, you’re bound to see the signs. There are dozens of
billboards that stand along a stretch of 692 kilometers, each one asking, “What is the Thing?” That, or a variation of that question, that creates curiosity
to all those that see it. Now, that’s a lotta hype that
could cause disappointment, and you guessed it, it is! The Thing is located at a gas station in Texas Canyon, Arizona, apparently among a number
of fake museum pieces, including Hitler’s car,
which you know is authentic, because there’s a sculpture of the Fuhrer sitting in the back seat. Well, the actual Thing is
a fake mummified corpse of a mother and her child that was created by Homer
Jack sometime in the 1940s. And although it’s decent work, it’s hardly worth all those billboards. I guess it’s better to call it the Thing than “Come See the Fake Dead Body “with the Fake Mummified Child.” It’s stupid. Number two is the Big Poo. Oh yeah. Yeah. You know, some attractions really stink. (laughs) I’m not apologizing for that pun. Commissioned by Ian Cohen, a
member of Parliament, in 2002, the Big Poo is a five-meter-long foam turd that’s located in New
South Wales, Australia. The log itself is just on the town’s edge and stands as a statement
against the proposed project that saw the sewage from people’s homes being dumped into the ocean as opposed to being given to local farmers who actually requested it so
that they can make fertilizer. But it’s still around. Because today the Big Poo
is a draw for tourists looking to take pictures with it. Hey Ma, come stand next to
the big piece of pooploodos. Poo-poos. And actually, Australia has an obsession with big versions of things, and many people have come overseas to see everything from the
big banana to the big potato. When asked why he made it out of foam, Cohen said it was for two good reasons. One, it could be moved easily,
and two, it was a floater. (gags) No. Really, though, what do you people think he’s gonna make
it out of, actual poo? What are you, insane? And number one is Prada in the Desert. Officially unveiled on October 1st, 2005, Prada Marfa is a humorous art installation created by artists Elmgreen and Dragset. Situated 2.3 kilometers outside the city of Valentine, Texas, at the side of a dusty
dirt road along Highway 90, this structure looks like a Prada store offering handbags, shoes,
and other fancy accessories. And it was actually selected by the Prada mogul herself, Miuccia Prada. Considered by the creators to be a pop-architectural land project, the door to this classy-looking
store is permanently locked, meaning no shopping can
be done there at all. Visitors stop by literally just to look at the out-of-place installation that the artists one day
hope will degrade back into the natural landscape itself. You hear that, folks? When you’re done with all
your Prada shoes and handbags, just bury them, ’cause
apparently they’re biodegradable! Wonderful! They’re not. Don’t do that. That was a joke. They’re probably extremely
toxic to the earth. Well, this world just got
a little weirder for ya. Oh boy! I don’t even know what’s
wrong with these people. Why, why would you create any of these? It’s just, you gotta be
bored outta your mind. That lady that creates small
things outta big things? Outta small things? Outta big things? That’s just a headache. That’s a headache and a half. I’m done, have a great day.

  1. Legend says Manneken Pis was a cheeky Medieval boy. He was wandering the streets of his hometown of Brussels and he peed on the front door of an old-looking house that was inhabited by a witch. When she found out what he did she was so furious she cursed the boy and turned him into stone, having a full bladder for eternity. She put him on a pedestal to showcase his "shameful act" to the entire city.
