Get ready to taste one of those items that multiply your desire to travel without being able to avoid it. If you are tired of always visiting the same places, you should prepare a list with such incredible destinations as the ones mentioned below, since none of them is anything like what you have seen so far. Anyway, MacroTraveller encourages you to add them to your list of future destinations so you can enjoy landscapes that you will record in your memory forever. Let’s start?
Vaadhoo Island (Maldives)The Maldives already have magic, but on the island of Vaadhoo, that magic reaches unexpected levels thanks to marine bioluminescence, which is what allows us to talk about its sea of stars.
Why is this phenomenon so amazing? It has a scientific answer since the phytoplankton called dinoflagellate is able to respond to electrical signals. When the low tide and said plankton accumulates on the shore, it comes in contact with oxygen, and that produces a chemical reaction that leaves you with your mouth open. It can be appreciated especially when the temperatures are very high, although it is not a factor that prevents you from enjoying the show at any time of the year.
Monte Roraima (Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana)It is a beautiful mountain that is located between Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana, three South American countries that boast the highest peak of the mountain range of the Highlands of Guyana. The highest point is in Brazil, specifically in Roraima. It’s called “El Maverick,” and it goes up to 2,810 meters. It is a magnificent mountain that for many years is an icon for the natives, a natural wonder around which many myths and legends revolve.
Hitachi Park (Japan)
In case you are interested in visiting it, first of all, I will tell you that it is in the city Hitachinaka, in the Prefecture of Ibaraki. As you can see in the image, the flowers that give life to its 190 hectares are beautiful. These change color depending on the time of year, always maintaining a degree of incomparable beauty that attracts tourists and locals whatever the season of the year. Sunflowers, cosmos, kochia, crocuses, daffodils, tulips … There is a great variety of flowers.
Pozo Encantado or Enchanted Well (Brazil)This curious natural pool is in Chapada Diamantina, a region of more than 38,000 square kilometers that drives nature lovers crazy. The Enchanted Well has a depth of 60 meters, and its waters cannot be cleaner and transparent. Of course, I must tell you that you cannot bathe because they want to keep the place in the best possible way. You can only immerse yourself in its waters if you hire an excursion with one of the companies that have the authorization to take you there. These excursions, which incidentally cannot go children under 12 years, usually cost between 50 and 60 euros including transportation, guide, and travel insurance.
Tulip Meadows (Holland)Nice picture, right? There is nothing more characteristic of Holland than its tulips. If you want to surround yourself with them to contemplate the beauty in the first person, I must tell you that the best time to do it is between March and May, being the middle of April the best time to see them. Keep in mind that during the spring more than seven million flower bulbs bloom in Keukenhof, a beautiful floral park located in Lisse that you should visit.
Ancient region of Anatolia (Turkey)With an appeal very different from that of tulips, the ancient region of Anatolia seduces you in the Asian part of Turkey. It borders on the Black Sea to the east, and we usually identify it by the name of Cappadocia, which is what travel agencies usually use to get our attention.
Salar de Uyuni (Bolivia)It is the largest salt desert on the planet, measuring more than 10,000 square kilometers. It is in the southwest of Bolivia and is a place of great interest for the vast electronics multinationals since there is more than 50% of the world’s lithium. Also, potassium, boron, and magnesium are also abundant. What is most striking is that you have the feeling of walking in the sky. Immensity and silence move you as you try to guess where you are.
To Sua (Samoa)This other natural pool is in Samoa, specifically in the Lotofaga village of the island of Upolu. It measures 30 meters, and you can bathe in it thanks to the staircase that you have placed so that any visitor can enjoy the experience from within. To Sua, by the way, means “giant swimming hole.”
Trolltunga (Norway)A Trolltunga want to get many hiking fans when they visit Norway. Of course, we must take precautions because it is a dangerous place. In fact, it is not advisable to visit it in winter. The route lasts between 10 and 12 hours, so you have to be mentally prepared. There are 27 kilometers round trip in which you have to be careful, since there are steep cliffs that are not fenced. There are only two mountain shelters, and they can only be used for emergencies, not to spend the night there. The reward for so much effort? The spectacular views that you contemplate, among which is that of Lake Ringedal, which 700 meters below.
Zhangye Danxia (China)It is another magical corner that is not called as it is called by chance. It is in the counties of Linze and Sunan, in the city-prefecture of Zhangye, province of Gansu. Danxia means “pink clouds,” and that’s just what their mountains look like, which not only look pink, but also show up in other shades. And why so many colors? For the deposits of sandstones and other minerals that took place more than 24 million years ago, it is said soon.
