Planet earth is full of weird places. Dare to explore the exciting and puzzling nature and a whole new world of mysteries, lost civilizations, strange phenomena, and paranormal realms will unfold. We all love ghost stories, don’t we? The article will introduce you to some weird and unusual places that are not only great tourist attractions, but they also have the power to mystify and inspire.
Why there are more ghosts in mountains? Well, the population density is very low and ghosts like solitude. Apart from that the people who come here for tourism, if they die here in an accident, their souls could not find the way back to their homes and they get stuck and roam around at the place itself. Same applies for hotels and lakes too.
Many of the desolate lakes are haunted, because the water and energy are contained there. Nothing changes, nothing moves.

Below are the few worth telling and retelling.
1. Island of the Dolls, Mexico
This creepy island of hanging dolls near Mexico City would be a strange point of interest on your vacation. The owner thought that hundreds of dolls would ward off evil spirits after a little girl drowned there. Also called the La Isla De Las Muñecas, this spine-chilling and inexplicable Island in the marshy canals of Xochimilco is one of the weirdest and scariest tourist attractions.
The Island is dedicated to the tortured soul of a girl child who drowned in the canal water and met with her fate too early. Inquire the local folklore, and they will tell you about the tragic incident of how one of three girls’ who often used to play around the area drowned fatefully. However, the story doesn’t end here.
Don Julian Santana, a loner who dedicated the last 50 years of his life to freeze the haunted spirit of the girl, is also associated with the story. He often used to decorate the island trees with discarded dolls as a gesture to please the distressed spirit. An even scarier turn took place in the story when Don Julian was found dead, in precisely a similar manner as the girl drowned in the canal.
Do visit this Island; it is undoubtedly a surreal tribute, created out of fear and superstition.
2. Gravity Hill, Pennsylvania
Have you ever experienced your car rolling up the hill without placing the gear or putting your foot on the Accelerator? More appropriately, have you ever been to a place that defies gravity. If your answer is no, experience it all at Gravity Hill, Pennsylvania.
Gravitational force does not seem to be existing here, and people freak out when they find any object such as water bottles, balls or their car rolling uphill by itself. While some say it’s nothing more than an illusion, others explained how the fundamental laws of physics get broken here.
3. Kori no Suizokukan, Japan
Also called the Ice aquarium, Kori no Suizokukan is another strange place, especially for those who get lured by marine life. Ice aquarium at the Miyagi Prefecture in Japan is an aquarium with a difference. Although there are more than 450 specimens of fishes and other sealife that are displayed in the aquarium, they are all flash-frozen in a lifelike state.
This means, even though the fishes are dead, they appear to be swimming. Special suits are provided at the aquarium so that you do not get transformed into a freezing exhibit. The area looks like a frozen seafood section in some supermarkets.
4. The Paper House, Rockport
A real house made of paper has been standing erect for over a century now. Astonished? But that’s true. The house was built by Elis F. Stenman, who was a mechanical engineer. He did not only make a house using old newspapers, but he also created furniture that was made of paper.
Stenman started building the house just like any other house that has a timber frame, roofs, etc. but when it came to walls, he thought to do something different. He made walls using a bunch of old newspapers joined together with homemade glue (made using apple peel, flour, and water) and varnish.
In total, he used more than 100,000 publications to constitute the walls of his home. The idea of using newspapers was not only economical; the walls were also well insulated. Do visit this wonder. It is a unique place exemplifying art and hard work.
5. Bokor Mountain Hill, Cambodia
Known as an abandoned ghost town, Bokor Mountain Hill is a unique attraction, and people-driven away with history, adventure, nature, and paranormal activities often come here for visits. Whatever is your reason for coming here, this abandoned site from the past, located approximately 40 km from Kampot has something weird about it.
Remains of a growing Catholic Church, casino, royal residences, hotel rooms, and other buildings are the main features of Bokor Mountain Hill.
Roam around at different sites here, and it will not be tough for you to picture the harsh and turbulent past that the hill station had been through. The area was deserted during World War II.
6. Sedlec Ossuary
Sedlec Ossuary is the church located in Sedlec. The weird part about this church is that it is decorated with more than 40,000 human skeletons arranged artistically to form furnishings and decorations.
7. Door to Hell, Turkmenistan
Door to Hell in the Karakum Desert in Turkmenistan may not be one of the preferred holiday destinations but is undeniably an attraction that is unique as well as weird. Door to Hell has not been there since the beginning. This massive crater was cast open 40 years ago by the mortal man. Seemingly unceasing source of the natural gas casts a portentous glow to the hole.
Dancing flames are visible from miles after the Sunset. Some geological activity in 1971 that involved drilling the earth caused the formation of the crater. Although it was thought that all the natural gas would cease in a few years, it has been more than 40 years since the hole has been burning.
8. Pamukkale, Turkey
Terraced pools in Pamukkale, Turkey are both a weirdly beautiful and strange tourist attraction. It has been there for more than two millennia, but still, the appeal is little known.
The terraces have been formed because of the earthquake that had hit the place thousands of years ago. The quake created a way for powerful hot springs to bring calcium carbonate-rich water to the surface. Eventually, the water evaporated and the chalky material formed terrace-like structures.
9. Poveglia, Italy
It is a small island, a few miles away from Venice in Italy. A small canal divides the island into two parts. Though it is very beautiful and appealing, no one goes there and it is counted as one of the scariest places on earth. It is believed to be haunted as few evidences were recorded that clearly supported the belief of its being haunted.
In roman times, this island was used to separate the plague victims of the entire Europe from the healthy ones. All the population of this island had were the victims who died here. This was known as the Black Death and the island became haunted and is strictly prohibited. The island is famous all over the world for its terror and haunted stories.
10. Dragon’s Blood Trees, Socotra
Well-known Dragon’s Blood Trees and 700 other species attract hundreds of people to the Socotra every year. It is an attraction that is wired but worth visiting.
