From islands filled with cats to Martian landscapes, the world is filled with destinations some may not believe exist. Tourico Vacations reviews 5 of these unbelievable destinations.
NEW YORK, NY, August 23, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Hand in the Desert – Chilean sculptor Mario Irarrazabal is known for his unique works depicting human suffering and loneliness and he chose one of the most desolate locations for this surreal sculpture. The life-like hand rises out of the sand in the middle of the Atacama Desert in Chile, about 50 miles from the city of Antofagasta.
Goblin Valley State Park in Utah – Another desert valley worth exploring is said to resemble a Martian landscape. Thousands of years of water, wind and weather have eroded the soft sandstone creating bizarre looking pinnacles that have taken on goblin-like shapes. The area has well-marked trails for tourists to explore this unusual phenomenon.
Cat Island – Just off the coast of Japan is the island of Tashirojima. While there are only 100 human residents, there are literally thousands of cats inhabiting the island. The Island was a producer of silk and since mice prey on the silkworms, cats were brought on the island to keep the mice population under control. Over time, the island has become a cat shrine, where tourists can stay in cat shaped cabins while exploring this remarkable destination.
The Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland – The causeway was crested over 60 million years ago and is characterized by 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, so perfectly formed that local legends believed they were created by giants. In truth, this World Heritage Site was formed by volcanic eruptions.
Great Pacific Garbage Patch – For about $10,000, people can help clean up a section of the ocean that is home to the largest collection of floating garbage. This massive heap of plastic waste is larger than the size of Texas and vacationers can actually help operate the machinery that picks up the debris that is a threat to ocean wildlife.
