#27 – 10 Incredible Places [Part 2]

Hey everyone, I really enjoyed writing my latest post on 10 Incredible Places and it was great to see your appreciation.

So, I’ve decided to write a second part that showcases 10 more awe-inspiring locations on our planet, many of which you’ll find hard to believe:

#1 – Hidden Beach, Mexico

Known to many as ‘the World’s most beautiful bomb site’, this hidden paradise was the result of a military explosion test in the early 20th century. The beach is only accessible by swimming through a 50ft tunnel!

#2 – Tunnel of Love, Ukraine

This 1.8 mile leafy tunnel was formed over years from the passing of trains. Derelict today, it’s a popular spot for lovers to take a stroll.

#3 – Salar De Uyuni, Bolivia

Thanks to its remarkable flatness, these vast salt flats transform into one giant mirror during the rainy season. The Salar was formed as a result of transformations between several prehistoric lakes and is often used to calibrate Earth observation satellites.

#4 – Lake Natron, Tanzania

No photoshop here, this lake’s deep red colour comes from the salt loving microorganisms in its waters. The salt content of this lake is so high that it can effectively turn animals into stone from its water.

#5 – Yuanyang County, China

Spread over 2,200km, this awe-inspiring region of China is home to the world famous rice terraces. Locals still employ traditional farming techniques here on the slopes of Ailao Mountain.

#6Skaftafell Ice Cave, Iceland

These beautiful ice caves are formed when flowing water melts a hole into glaciers. The ice so tightly packed that it absorbs all light except for blue, giving the ice its unique colour.

#7 – Reed Flute Caves, China

Located in Guilin, this 240m network of caves got its name from the type of reeds growing outside. Today, the beautiful limestone caves are illuminated for tourists with coloured lights.

#8 – Sentinels of the Arctic, Finland

These strange figures appear during the Finnish Winter (where temperatures range from -40 to -15 degrees centigrade), and they’re actually just giant trees covered in snow and ice!

#9 – Bigar Waterfall, Romania

One of the most unique waterfalls in the world, the Bigar Falls are created entirely from moss and are known by locals as ‘the miracle from the Minis gorge’. Interestingly, the falls are located half way between the North Pole and the Equator.

#10 – Vaadhoo Island, Maldives

This magical site is known to locals as the ‘Sea of Stars’. These tiny lights are actually caused by bioluminescent phytoplankton which emit light under the stress of the lapping waves.

Thanks again for taking a look at this post!! Let me hear your thoughts in the comments below!
