We all love to rest in Turkey. We are attracted by excellent service, a variety of hotels, a great climate and an interesting excursion program. One of the most remarkable places in Turkey is the ancient city of Troy, which is located in the province of Canakkale on the shores of the Aegean Sea. So if you are lucky enough to visit Bodrum or Izmir you must visit this historical Mecca.

Vacation in Vietnam usually attracts fans of Southeast Asia. Waiting for you here are good beaches, warm sea, and the world’s largest cave Schondong, which is located in the Phongnya Kebang National Park in Quang Binh Province. The cave is 200 meters high and about 150 meters wide. In this vast underground kingdom you can see the unique stalactites and stalagmites and touch the rocks, the total age of which is about 38.5 million years!
3. Mexico. Teotihuacan
The ancient city of Teotihuacan, located 50 km from Mexico City, is impressive in its mysterious history. Once it was one of the largest cities in Mesoamerica, which developed in parallel with the Roman civilization, but was able to survive longer. Everything here is subject to logic – the streets are at right angles and there is a square in the center. In addition, there are several pyramids, the most famous of which are the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon . Hundreds of scientists are still working on the mystery of the city’s demise, as it was abandoned by its inhabitants almost in its heyday, and archaeological analysis has found no evidence to prove that the city was attacked by anyone.
4. Thailand. Royal residence in Bangkok
The attitude to the royal family in Thailand is special: they are not just revered, but sacredly loved. That is why the Royal Palace, which is located in the capital of the country, is the pride and adoration of the locals, as well as the interest of tourists. In addition to the picturesque park, you can visit several churches, listen to the service, as well as learn the history of the ruling dynasty.
5. Greece. Monasteries of Meteora
For those traveling to mainland Greece, seeing this wonder is a must. The houses-monasteries soaring on the rocks in the mountains of Thessaly are simply fascinating, and the views from such a height are breathtaking. Since ancient times, ascetic monks came here, and later monasteries were formed in these parts. Now you can visit 4 male and 2 female monasteries to learn more about the life and lifestyle of local residents.
6. Czech Republic. Charles Bridge
In Czech Republic almost every house is unique and you can spend hours walking through the center of Prague and enjoy the atmosphere of old Europe: castles, clocks, old sidewalk. But the symbol of the city is Charles Bridge that crosses the Vltava River and connects the districts of Malá Strana and Staré Mesto. The bridge is supported by 16 powerful arches and decorated with different sculptures. After having walked across the bridge, you can enjoy the fresh beer brewed in front of you and taste the aromatic sausages.
7. Egypt. The Pyramids of Giza.
The fact that the pyramids located on the Giza plateau in Egypt is the only surviving Wonder of the World out of 7, even schoolchildren know. Therefore, when buying tours to Hurghada or Sharm el-Sheikh, we always remember these pyramids and their silent guard of the Sphinx. Of course everyone should see them with their own eyes in order to pay tribute to the civilization which built them as well as to try to solve the riddle of their construction.
8. Brazil. Statue of Christ the Redeemer
You can visit the legendary Rio de Janeiro all year round, because the local beaches are always hot. Or you can choose the time to get to the carnival and at the same time enjoy one of the most mind-blowing views of the city from the observation deck at the foot of the statue of Christ the Redeemer. The huge figure of the Redeemer rises up to 38 m into the sky, and the arm span of the statue is 28 m. You can get to the mountain on which the statue is installed by a small railroad or by car.
9. India. Golden Triangle
In one of the most exotic and mysterious countries in the world – India there is a lot of interesting places, you can’t visit all of them during a short vacation. But to see the main attractions of the country you can tour the Golden Triangle. Three beautiful cities: Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, each of which has something different, unusual and beautiful. You can see the Gateway of India, appreciate the power of love embodied in the Taj Mahal, feel part of the royal family near the Palace of the Winds and a warrior in the Red Fort.
10. China. The Great Wall of China.
China is a country with centuries-old culture that deserves great attention. Especially interesting is the Great Wall of China, which is considered the New Wonder of the World. The wall was built by several dynasties of rulers in order to protect the borders from invasions by foreigners. The total length of the wall is about 21 kilometers, but most of it is unfortunately already destroyed, and the thickness in different places reaches up to 9 meters. But if you want to take a souvenir, be careful as you can be fined up to 5000 CNY for stealing stones from the wall.
10 unique places on the planet that everyone should visit
Not everyone will find them interesting, alluring or at least aesthetically pleasing, but some will find them to be the most stunning places on Earth. And, yes, all of these places are real!
Valley of Love, Turkey
Far away in the arid and dusty plains of Asia Minor is one of Turkey’s most important attractions. Cappadocia is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its ancient cave settlements, underground monasteries and samples of Byzantine art. It is probably one of the most historically important areas in the Middle East. It may seem rather strange that this area is also home to an entire forest of giant stone phalluses. You heard right! Thanks to a long history of geological changes, the rocks in the vicinity have taken bizarre shapes.
The most unusual forms were formed in the Valley of Love. The tall rocks, topped with slightly conical thickenings at the tops, look like penises. The entire valley is full of them: huge stone phalluses stretch as far as the eye can see. No wonder the area is now a favorite spot for paddlers from all over the world to take funny pictures.
Jatinga Valley, Assam, India
This village of 2,500 people is world famous for the unexplained phenomenon of bird suicide. Most of the migratory birds that end up here will never leave the town because they drop dead for no reason. The case seems even more unfathomable because birds always fall between 6:00 and 9:30 p.m. on moonless nights in September and October. These mass suicides only occur on a strip of land measuring 1.6 km by 183 meters.
The phenomenon is said to repeat itself year after year without interruption for more than a century. The locals explain it this way: evil spirits in the sky make the birds part with their lives. But scientists have their own version. They believe that the thick fog at high altitude makes the birds dizzy and so they bump into trees and buildings and end up crashing to their deaths. Another theory proposed by scientists is that the birds are attracted to the lights of the village and are subsequently unable to navigate because of these lights. Neither theory, however, has evidence and does not solve the mystery of this mysterious place in India. So the phenomenon continues to intrigue the minds of residents and tourists alike.
Cape Slope Point, New Zealand
Cape Slope Point is the southernmost point of the South Island of New Zealand. The region is constantly blown by fierce and cold southwest winds from the Antarctic. The winds here are so powerful and gusty that the trees bend in the direction of the wind. Sheep are mostly raised here, and, except for a small number of these cloven-hoofed animals, there are no people or other animals in this part of the island. There are a few abandoned shacks built under the protection of trees, but even these are abandoned.
Impressive sheer cliffs slope down to the ocean. The views of the rocky coastline and surrounding cliffs are truly amazing. A small sign shows the distance to the equator and the South Pole. There is also a small lighthouse in the middle of the farmland. There are no roads to Slope Point, but it can be reached on foot in 20 minutes by following the dilapidated yellow signs.
Al Naslaa Stone
There are many natural phenomena that can stun a traveler. This is one of them. Perfection itself. See the even cut between the faces of these two standing stones? Al-Naslaa is one of the most photogenic petroglyphs (petroglyphs are images carved in stone) in the area. Its natural shape is a big mystery that no one has solved yet. Be sure to visit during your vacation in Saudi Arabia to admire this natural phenomenon.
Colorful Dunes, USA
The multicolored dunes in Lassen Volcanic National Park look like the landscape from a watercolor painting. Red and orange patches cover the hilly terrain with green trees scattered throughout. The blackness of the volcanic earth contrasts with their bright hues. The colorful swirls and patches appear to be the work of landscape designers, but they are one of nature’s masterpieces. The artists responsible for the unusual appearance of the dunes are local volcanoes. The colorful dunes are pumice fields formed from layers of oxidized volcanic ash. They became so colorful because of the ash that settled directly on the red-hot lava flows.
Vanishing Beach, Odisha
The beach that “plays hide and seek” is located in the state of Odisha (old name Orissa), India. Here the sea disappears and miraculously reappears. Its game of hide and seek brings an unforgettable experience that will leave you in awe of the wonders of nature. It is truly amazing how the sea retreats five kilometers at low tide and then comes back again in a swift stream.
The tide offers a unique opportunity to view the seafloor. In addition, when you walk on the beach, your feet sink into the shallow and wet sand, and if you take a picture from afar, it will seem as if you’re walking on water.
Emerald ice on Lake Baikal, Russia
Lake Baikal, which is located in the southern part of Eastern Siberia, is shrouded in ice for almost five months of the year. Every winter, when temperatures drop below 0°C, the surface of the world’s largest freshwater lake freezes. Ice does not form until midwinter. Long after the Siberian frosts begin, when other rivers and lakes are already covered with ice, Baikal will resist the formation of ice. But when the lake begins to freeze, usually in early January, it will remain frozen for about five months, or from January to May. Baikal is freezing, but the water is so clear that when you stand on the surface, you can easily look 40 meters deep into the lake. Wind, temperature variations, frost and sun create cracks in the ice and ice hummocks (or blocks). Translucent and sparkling, these emerald-colored blocks of ice look like shards of glass towering above a flat surface. Their appearance is caused by the slow and uneven pressure in the main mass of ice, as well as the uneven structure and differences in temperature. This place is now on your list of must-see places.
Tunnel of Love, Ukraine
Near the town of Klevan, Ukraine, trees have turned a nearly four-kilometer stretch of railroad into a charming green tunnel. The train, which transports timber to the local wood processing plant, runs here three times a day. The rest of the time, it’s a great place for a couple or solo stroll. Because of the romantic atmosphere, this section of the railroad became known as the Tunnel of Love.
It is also called the Green Mile Tunnel because of the bright green foliage on the trees. In spring and summer, the tunnel is especially beautiful. But the colorful colors of autumn and the snowy landscapes of winter are also enchanting. Local legend has it that those couples whose intentions are sincere will have their wishes come true.
Tianji Mountains, China
Unusually beautiful flying mountains, located on the planet Pandora in the movie Avatar, are not a fiction of the filmmakers. Located in China, the soaring mountains are a. Rocks fascinate and impress at first sight, so going to the Middle Kingdom, is worth a few days to go to Hunan Province, where the park is located. For visitors here created excellent conditions for accommodation, meals and recreation. In addition to the mountains, there is an opportunity to see many other natural attractions. The park is located in the northwestern part of the country, near the city of the same name. The area is full of wonders and natural attractions. Zhangjiajie Park is joined by the equally famous geological parks of Yanjiajie, Tanjishan, and Xuxiu. Zhangjiajie is the oldest park in China, founded in 1982. It has a vast area of almost 13,000 square kilometers, which includes mountains, forests, other vegetation, and a huge number of animals.
In 1992 it was taken under the protection of UNESCO, as part of, Wulingyuan. Nine years later the park was awarded the status of the National Forest Geopark of Sandstone Peaks (by decision of the relevant Chinese ministry). It is also part of the Global Network of Geological Parks protected by UNESCO. In fact, the Wulingyuan Mountains are rocky pillar peaks made of quartz and sandstone, which have been transformed into a true miracle of nature by erosion and weathering. The total number of unusual rocks is more than 3 thousand, and about one thousand have a height of 200 meters. The highest peak is Mount Dupeng, which reaches 1,890 meters into the sky.
Blue City of Chavin, Morocco
The celestial tones of the streets in the Moroccan city of Chavin seem like fairy-tale decorations. The color palette of uphill buildings abounds in piercing shades of blue, blue and azure. The city, where the walls of buildings, window frames, wooden doors of houses, stairs and even flower pots are filled with blue, is one of the largest tourist centers of northern Morocco. The rich shades of blue azure, transitioning to blues and purples, are renewed several times a year. The inhabitants of Chavin repaint the buildings before the major holidays and festivals that take place in the city several times a year.
Founded in 1471 as a fortress in defense against Portuguese invaders, Chavin owes its monotony of colors to the local Jewish community. The city became one of the largest safe havens for Jews exiled from Spain during the Reconquista. According to biblical precepts, the blue and blue hues of the houses are supposed to symbolize the Talit prayer veil and remind one of God. The Jewish population of Shaven has declined significantly since the 15th century, but the locals have maintained the tradition of painting buildings in celestial shades.
