Another great feature from Gilbert Ott and the GodSaveThePoints team. It’s a great site with plenty of awesome travel tips and loads of great ways to save money for the serious traveller, but here’s something a bit different with some excellent “extraterrestrial” venues for the die-hard Star Wars fan like me* …
* spot the wookiee anyone?!
Space travel is so “in” right now, but before you don your space suit in search of interstellar beauty, you’re gunna want to knock these unbelievable destinations (which don’t look real) off your bucket list. Here are ten exotic places down here on earth that will blow your mind…
Lake Natron, Tanzania
You’re not insane, this naturally hot spring in Africa is so “hot” it turned the water red.
How about a city sized cave, made of pure glacier blue ice to spice up your winter travel?
Bromo Volcano, Java, Indonesia
Mars takes years to reach. In less than a days flight you can see terrain just like it in Java…
Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone, Wyoming USA
Yep, those colors are totally real. Why? You can thank the pigmented Archaea.
Waitomo Glowworm Caves, New Zealand
Ultimate adventure? A boat ride in luminescent cave with light from tiny micro creatures…
Hang Son Doong Caves, Vietnam
In what looks like the set of a Star Wars film, these Vietnamese caves literally look unreal.
Lencois Maranhenses Park, Brazil
If you think you’re seeing an endless sea of unique sand bars and water, you’re not wrong.
Namib Naukluft Park, Namibia
Why travel to Mars and risk getting stuck like Matt Damon when you could just go here?
Wulinyuang Vista, China
Though I wouldn’t try building an airport here, the views are breathtaking…
Farafra White Desert, Egypt
Sure, we’ve seen desert, but white desert, with crazy rock wonders?
