Tours and travels is an activity in which every travel enthusiast is fond of. You can travel the world a dozen times over and still not see all of the spectacular sites that exist. Travel junkies like to adventure hanging around the beautiful travel spots like Eiffel Tower in Paris, Westminister Abbey in London and the Vatican in Rome during their holiday sessions. There are a number of places around the world that are still off the radar as we are all busy sight-seeing the known places in the world.
So here’s a little helping hand in getting to know some of them!
These 10 amazing unknown places around the world you must visit before you die.
- Ischia Island, Italy
Serving as the main port town for the island of the same name, the town of Ischia has been inhabited for centuries, famous for its beaches and the healing waters of its spas. The town is divided in two: Ischia Porto is the harbor district and commercial center of the island, filled with brightly lit taverns and bars, and Ischia Ponte, the historic quarter, with its ancient castle and its stone streets, is seemingly frozen in time. Located in the Tyrrhenian Sea, this volcanic island has a lot to offer including thermal spas, volcanic mud, and hot springs.
- Vertical stairs at Machu Picchu, Peru
Nobody is entirely sure why the ancient Incas decided to build a huge temple complex at the top of nearly vertical mountain peaks, but they must have been incredibly confident people with strong calves. To reach the Temple of the Moon at the top of the mountain Huayna Picchu, you will face 183 meters of rock steps; were sculpted more than 500 years ago on one side of the mountain and are covered by clouds.
- Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, Maldives
A dining experience unlike any other you could probably find in the world, this underwater restaurant sits below the Indian Ocean and thrills visitors with everything from schools of colorful fish to graceful sharks which easily makes it among the most beautiful places in the world to visit.
- Marieta Islands, Mexico
You have to get a permit in order to explore this incredible location in Mexico, although the sights are well worth it. Everything from dolphins, humpback whales, manta rays, and sea turtles call this gorgeous patch of land home.
- Haiku Stairs in Oahu, Hawaii
Have you ever heard of the phrase, “Stairway to heaven”? Often than so you’d hear this over some mushy love songs. But this phrase fairly describes these stairs in Oahu, Hawaii. These majestic stairs have a top secret purpose when it was built in 1942. It was constructed by Haiku Radio Station to be able to transmit radio signals to Navy ships across the Pacific. The stairs count to 3,922 steps.
- Plitvice Lakes, Croatia
Of all of the waterfalls in the world, none are quite as extraordinary as those at Plitvice. Of course, I should say “series of waterfalls,” as this amazing natural ensemble is composed of 16 different terraced limestone lakes, with crystal clear water flowing from one to the next.
- Apostle Islands in Wisconsin, USA
This archipelago is located in the northern part of Wisconsin. These 60-foot high sandstone walls are just almost just too perfect to be naturally made.
- Lake Natron, Tanzania
It looks like a rug, but really this lake has a high evaporation rate paired with high alkalinity, which forms a crusty surface over the top. It is shades of red and pink because of the salt feeding organisms that call this unique location home.
- Smoo Cave, Scotland
This massive seaside cave looks like something straight out of Jurassic Park, but don’t worry, the only thing lurking within its depths of one of the most interesting places in the world is a hidden waterfall that cascades 80 feet into the placid waters below.
- The Canola Flower Fields in China
The grizzled canola farmers of this mountainous Chinese region don’t actually care that their workaday crop just so happens to look spectacular for a few short days of every year.
