A Few Strangely Beautiful Places in the World
14 August, 2014
Everyone yearns for a break away from the routine and go on a vacation to escape the monotony of daily life. Travelling to the usual tourist destinations can sometimes get boring. Everybody keeps going to these touristy spots, and has the exact same things to say. They don’t get a chance to experience anything new or out of the ordinary. Given below are a few remarkable must-visit destinations.
Located in Panjin, China, the Red Seabeach, as the name suggests, is scenery of lush red landscape. It is based in an enormous wetland and reed marsh. The shallow sea facilitates the growth of Sueda sea weed, a scarce species of grass that is light red in colour at first, but matures in colour with time. There are around 260 species of birds and 399 species of wild animals that exist here, and are a must-visit spot for wildlife lovers and nature enthusiasts.
Waitomo Glowworm Caves
Situated in one of the most scenic countries in the world, New Zealand, this cave is a place where you won’t require any artificial light. The breathtaking sight of this beautifully illuminated cave will take your breath away. The glow-worms are called Arachnocampa Luminosa and resemble stars in the night sky, only they are much closer.
Placed in the centre of a contrast of green eucalyptus trees and the blue Southern Ocean, this lake will soothe your senses. Unusually pink in colour, this is something you will not get to see or experience anywhere else. The mildly pleasant pink will have a calming effect on you. The lake seems a different shade of pink from an aerial view, and a more solid pink at the shoreline.
An atoll in the Maldives, Vaadhoo Island is a picturesque sight. Phytoplankton abounds the waters and shores here. At night, the shimmer in the shore water strongly resembles a plush, well-lit swimming pool, with the phytoplankton underneath giving a strong glow. It is almost as though the stars have fallen down on the shore. It has the most romantic natural lighting in the world.
Salar de Uyuni
Salar, meaning salt flat in Spanish, is world’s largest salt flat, spread over 10,582 square kilometres (4086 sq.miles). Situated in Southwest Bolivia, it is at an altitude of 3656 metres above sea level. It is one of the most peaceful places you can visit, and the white colour of the wide expanse of the salt flat simply enhances it.
Travelling to these places is a delight, but ensure the safety of the visit by investing in the right travel insurance.
