We all know by now that some of the best experiences, those that will probably stay with you for your whole life, happen when you least expect them. Here are a few unexpected suggestions for your next vacation that are bound to give you some great memories and some very interesting Facebook photos this summer:
- Leshan Giant Buddha from Sichuan, China
A 233 feet tall statue of Buddha should be impressive enough for most people. If you’re still undecided, then find out the statue was carved in the mountainside more than 13 centuries ago. You’ll get to experience a whole different culture and meet a lot of great, friendly people from the other side of the world. And if you still have doubts, you should know that you can stay at the Panda Inn in Sichuan, where the theme is present everywhere around you, including the staff’s uniforms!
- Dean’s Blue Hole, Bahamas
We know, we know, an exotic island shouldn’t be one of our unusual destinations. But this one place from the Bahamas has something unusual: it’s the deepest blue hole in the world, 600 feet. Its name derives from the bright blue color that can be seen from above.
- The Underwater Museum from Cancun, Mexico
This unique museum can be found by the coast of Cancun and contains over 450 statues made out of certain materials that help coral grow. Scuba diving in this area is a unique experience thanks to the diverse and colorful fauna which consists of hundreds of species of fish and other sea life.
- The Pamukkale Thermal Pools from Denizli, Turkey
These unique pools are filled with naturally hot water that comes up from underground springs and then cascades down filling the pools formed in thousands of years of natural carving. You can spend a whole day there swimming, relaxing and taking in the wonders of the Turkish landscape.
