Millions of people have walked through Times Square. Billions have lazed away entire days on the beach. A select number of dummies have even elected to climb the highest peaks in the world. And none of that holds any interest to you, because when you think Times Square, you think cheap tourist trap and tons of people. When you think about a beach you think of sunburn, oppressive heat, and tons of people. And when you think of climbing a mountain, you wonder why in the heck anyone would spend so much time and effort just to climb to a place where there’s no oxygen and nothing to do but come right back down and spend the rest of your life bragging about how you survived a crazily expensive, self-inflicted trauma just for a good view. No, when it’s time to get out on the road, you’re the kind of discerning person who needs something truly out of the ordinary to draw your attention. You’re looking in between the cracks of today’s travel opportunities to find something really, truly unique. Here, for your consideration, are some of the most bizarre tourist attractions from around the world. Hey, anyone can go to the Grand Canyon. It’s basically just a big hole in the ground, anyway. And crowded, too.
1. Amsterdam’s Electric Ladyland
No, it’s not a museum devoted to Jimi Hendrix. It’s more like one of his daydreams. Located in the world capital of good wee-er, fine architecture, Electric Ladyland is a love note to all things flourescent. Downstairs, there is even an interactive experience for those people who want to be literally surrounded by fluorescent stuff without having to go to a dubstep concert.
