Top 10 Lesser Known Tourist Attractions

These tourist attractions are either not advertised enough or are not appealing enough for people to visit. However, they are different and unique and quite refreshing, if you have that zeal of travelling to unexplored and in some cases, strange places!

 

1. Noodle Bath

This tourist attraction is in Japan and the person who thought of the idea obviously felt that a bath filled with water and soap was too mundane. Therefore, the Noodle Bath is filled with noodles and pepper collagen which is meant to improve one’s complexion. The same owner previously owned a bath which was filled with chocolate and wine.

2. Vale de la prehistoria

This attraction is in Cuba and includes structures of life-size creatures which are meant to belong to the prehistoric era. A prison is located nearby and it is said that the inmates were called over to finish the construction. The ‘park’ extends over 11 hectares and also features a few cave men here and there.

 

3. Karni Mata Temple

This temple is in India and is located in Rajasthan which is said to be the land of camels, palaces and Maharajas. Rats reside in this temple and are worshipped here. If you accidentally kill a rat by stepping over it or swatting at it, you will have to replace it with solid gold.

 

4. International Friendship Exhibition Hall

This Hall is in North Korea and houses over 90,000 gifts that have been collected over the years by Kim II Sung. These include chopsticks that have been brought over form Mongolia, a cigarette case which has been covered in gold, a number of odd-looking chess boards as well as an alligator which is grinning or smirking- one cannot tell.

5. Isla de las Munecas

Julián Santana Barrera liked to collect dolls but he discarded them because he wanted to quiet down a little girl’s spirit who apparently drowned to death. This collection of dolls is hung onto the branches of trees that can be found if you go through the Xochimico canals.

 

6. Cockroaches Hall of Fame

This Hall of Fame is in the United States of America. It is owned by a pest control specialist and features dead cockroaches that are made to look like famous film characters. If you do not want to look at dead creatures, you can always acquaint yourself with his collection of Madagascar roaches- they hiss and they are alive.

 

7. Bang Kwang Prison

This prison is in Thailand and if you pay the required amount, you can meet and speak with the inmates. If you do so, you will find out that a majority of them traveled to the country on holiday but unfortunately, it all went horribly wrong.

 

8. Neutrality Arch

Saparmurat Niyazov belonged to Turkmenistan. He was a famous megalomaniac and is known to have carved his name on anything and everything he could lay his hands on in the country. He also had a statue built which constantly revolves and is placed in such a way, that it faces the rising sun.

 

9. Sekigahara War World

This tourist attraction is basically a theme part in Japan. The theme here means to recreate a particular battle which took place in the country. Life-size structures can be seen parading around the area holding severed heads.

 

10. Karner Bone House

The Karner Bone House is in Austria and showcases a variety of skulls which are covered with images and decorations. This includes beautiful patterns of serpents, flowers and leaves. This was done because there was no place to keep the bodies and because there was a dire need to recycle the existing greaves.
