Unusual Vacation Places That Thrills

It is always a pleasure to select best tourist attraction for your vacations. There are people who think otherwise and discovering unusual tourist places like the one what we offer you today. We bet you these destinations would surely drive you crazy. These unusual tourist places are for those who think out of the line!

Gundam, Japan
 This is a tribute to the highly popular animated series in Japan featuring the robotic character Gundam. To mark the 30th anniversary of the series, a giant replica of Gundam was set up in Tokyo's Odaiba Shiokaze park in July 2009. The RX-78 Gundam statue is 60 feet tall with a mobile head and his entire frame emits lights from over 50 various spots. The fully illuminated Gundam figure with multi coloured lights looks very real as the evening descends.

Giant hockey stick, USA
  If your fascination is with every thing that is huge in size, this is your chance to enrich your visual experience with a visit to witness the largest free standing hockey stick in the world. Located in the small town of Eveleth in Minnesota, this metallic hockey stick is 107 feet long and is 3 tons of weight. To complement it, you will find a hockey puck at the base of the figure which, matching to the massive stick weighs 700 pounds!
Carnevale di Ivrea, Italy
Quite close to the La Tomatina festival of Spain, this freak event is about throwing oranges at one another in the tiny town of Ivrea. The madness continues for three days in late February and every body is engaged in the "Battle of the Oranges". As a traveller it will be a never before experience for you as you will be targeted by the orange and you will also get to shoot back! Sounds fair, right?

Catacombs, Paris
  Want to get the goosebumps or missing those haunting nightmares that used to wake you up at the middle of night? If game for it, switch to the catacombs located in Paris. Formerly, a stone mine, these tunnels are the place where you will see human skulls and bones stacked to the walls. An outcome of the rising real estate price in the late 18th century, when the cemeteries lost their places in the city areas, this spooky destination is not for the weak hearted.

The Crazy Horse Memorial, USA 
 As the very name suggests, this monument is simply insane and out of the sensible human thinking. Located in South Dakota, this massive carving of an Oglala Lakota warrior with his horse was started by Korczak Ziolkowski in 1948 on the Black Hills. But due to the death of this artist in 1982 the works were interrupted until it was resumed again by a foundation run by his family. Still under making, this figure will be the largest carving on earth with 641 feet in width and 563 feet in height.

 Chernobyl and Pripyat, Ukraine
 Madness reaches a whole new level when the thought of visiting two of world's most unlikely places- Chernobyl and Pripyat hits the mind. But, hang on! a growing number of tourists are showing interest in spending some days in the radioactive zone of Chernobyl to feel something that is queer. And same is the case with the secluded city of Pripyat where no one resides now after the infamous Chernobyl disaster in 1986.

  Bubblegum Alley, California
This is another example of what we call unusually crazy. Can you imagine a 20-meter-long stretch in San Luis Obispo where you will find the used bubble gums pasted on one another creating a colourful canvass? Well, it is a fact, no matter how disgusting it might sound or look! So next time you think twice before spitting out the bubble gum.

Karni Mata Temple, India
  The magical country of India also features in this odd list! The Karni Mata Temple in Deshnok in the state of Rajasthan, has the dubious distinction of being a queer place where rats are considered to be the representative of the goddess Karni. As a result, the whole temple premise is home to some 20,000 rats in all sizes and shapes.

 Cappadocia Cave Hotels, Turkey
  If you think a hotel can not be a tourist attraction, think again! Presenting the cave hotel of the wonderful Cappadocia. The artistic imagination was at its peak when the sculptors cut through these soft volcanic rocks to form pillars and minaret to give the guests a unique, but local taste.
