Vacations might be a chance for you to get away from work and relax, but they’re also an opportunity to explore the world. You can discover some amazing things while you’re out there because this planet is home to some crazy destinations.
Jukkasjarvi Icehotel (Sweden)
Some like it hot – others do not. If you fit into the latter category, this incredible hotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden, is bound to suit you just fine. Nearly every aspect of this unique accommodation is crafted from ice, including the beds. A stay here might be a little chilly, but at least you’ll remember this experience for years to come. Plus, you’ll get to say you spent time at a bar where the drinks were served in glasses made of ice.
Pamukkale Thermal Pools (Turkey)
If you’d prefer to heat things up during your vacation, then why not head over to Turkey? This country is home to one of the most visually pleasing destinations that will warm you up in no time. We’re talking about the Pamukkale Thermal Pools, home to dozens of natural hot spring baths. The cool blues and whites of this location may give off arctic vibes, but trust us, that water is as warm as it gets. This is absolutely the place to go if you’re looking to de-stress.
Pancake Rocks (New Zealand)
Pancakes are a must-have when you’re on vacation, although you probably won’t find any here. Despite its name, this New Zealand spot doesn’t serve sweet and savory varieties of this delicious cake. What you will find there, though, is some of the most captivating landmarks in the world. Crafted some 30 million years ago, this destination is home to a collection of outcroppings that look like stacks of pancakes. Whether you wish to admire them from near or afar, these prove firsthand just how wonderful nature can be.
Cancun Underwater Museum (Mexico)
Exploring a museum might not sound like a thrilling thing to do while on vacation, but that’s because you’ve never been to the one in Cancun. Just off the coast of the city lives the Underwater Museum, which – as the name suggests – is located below the water’s surface. Hundreds of sculptures rest on the seafloor; all of them made of materials designed to help coral grow. For anyone that doesn’t mind getting a bit wet, this is truly an experience like no other.
Ithaa Undersea Restaurant (Maldives)
If the thought of an underwater museum is to your liking, then an underwater restaurant will probably also be up your street. This can be found 16 feet below the surface of Conrad Maldives Rangali Island in the Maldives. Although the spot only seats 12, dining here is something that should definitely not be missed out on. After all, the walls of the restaurant are made of glass, so you can enjoy watching all the incredible aquatic life while savoring some first-class food.
You only get so many vacations in life, so why not make the most of the ones you’ve got left by checking out these amazing destinations?
