In our previous post we had mentioned around seven of the world’s most weirdly yet beautiful places. In this article we continue this list because the world is just too huge and it has quite a lot of paces that is truly breathtaking. So read on to find out more such places!
11) Kuang Si Falls –
Already a top holiday destination for backpackers, the Laotian city of Luang Prabang is temptingly close to Kuang Si Falls.
It is a three tier splash spectacular with waters so clear and blue it’ll be hard to resist jumping straight in. Hike the trails around the area to escape the tour groups and find your own secret slice of paradise.
12) The Enchanted River –
The Hinatuan River, popularly known as the Enchanted River, is currently one of the cleanest in the Philippines. The natural bluish pool is 50-80 meters deep and flows directly to the Pacific ocean.
The deepest part is said to have strong sea currents connected to a trench, which is why the water there is salty. A lot of people say photos of this place are photoshopped, but such is the essence of the Enchanted River; it is clear to the point of being unbelievable.

13) Antelope Canyon –
Antelope Canyon in Arizona is the most visited slot canyon in the world. It formed by erosion of sandstone millions of years ago. The impressive stone structure makes it the most photographed canyon in the world. The antelope canyon also has two main parts called the upper antelope canyon and the lower antelope canyon.
Upper antelope canyon is the most visited section at antelope canyon because of easiness of access. This part has extensive passages and requires no climbing.
Lower antelope canyon demands climbing through ladders. It has a fragile structure and narrow passages — this magnificent view of sandstone structures is the main attraction of antelope canyon. The site is also prone to flooding during monsoon season.
14) Grand Prismatic Spring –
More wet stuff to blow your socks off, this time in North America. This natural pool, with its rainbow colored waters, is found in Yellowstone National Park and is the third largest hot spring in the world.
The Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park is the largest hot spring in the United State and the third largest in the world.
15) Dallol Volcano –
Dallol is a volcanic explosion crater in the Danakil Depression in Ethiopia.
It has been formed by the intrusion of basaltic magma into Miocene salt deposits and subsequent hydro-thermal activity. Unbelievable sight.
16) Abraham Lake –
Another beautiful lake. This is the Abraham Lake and it is located in Canada.
Pictures of Abraham Lake in the winter have gotten quite popular. This is due to a phenomenon that creates “frozen bubbles” under the ice creating very unusual sight.
17) Red Beach –
Very cool and very weird, this beach is covered in a type of seaweed called Sueda, which turns bright red in autumn.
Thirty kilometres southwest of Panjin, these tidal wetlands are an important nature reserve for migrating birds. Only a small section of the beach is open to the public, but it can be explored via a wooden walkway that stretches out to sea.
18) Glass Beach –
This glittering sea glass beach in California is a remarkable side effect of years of rubbish being dumped on the beach; it wasn’t until the 1960s that this was stopped and by then the sea was full of everything from electrical appliances to bottles and cans.
Over time, the waves broke everything down into colorful pebbles and the beach became a major tourist attractive places – now ironically under threat because visitors are taking home the glass.
19) Cat Island –
A short ferry ride from Japan’s east coast, Tashirojima has a population of one hundred humans who are vastly outnumbered by their furry friends.
Originally the cats were encouraged as the island produced silk and mice are a natural predator of silkworms. Local fishermen regarded them as good luck and the island even has a cat shrine, along with newly built cat shaped cabins for tourists to stay in. It goes without saying that there are no dogs allowed.
20) Trees Cocooned in Spider Webs –
Heavy monsoon rains flooded 1/5 of the total land area of Pakistan in 2010. As a result, millions of spiders sought refuge in the trees, especially those that lined the farms and rivers in the village of Sindh.
Because the water was slow to recede, these arachnids established their homes in the trees and managed to completely enrobe them with their silky webs in the process. The people of Sindh admitted that this was their first time witnessing such a phenomenon.
