If you want something out of the ordinary and not your usual scenic spot, these are some of the places to head to.

GAME for some unusual attractions? Love to be challenged by something out of the norm?

Watching a glorious sunset can be appealing but after a while a sunset is a sunset, right? If not for your captions, you probably can’t tell where or when you saw one while looking through your travel pictures.

But if it’s something that jumps out of the pages, sticks to your mind you would be hard put to forget it. Here’s a list from TripAdvisor on some of those attractions in no particular order.
