The world is blessed with many wonderful places to visit, discover and explore. But sometimes you encounter places that are hard to believe they really exist. And this is what we call a life-changing experience! Here are six of them.
Hitachi Seaside Park, Japan
A picturesque flower park located in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki prefecture of Japan, Hitachi is also a popular tourist destination travelers always appreciate. This is where you can see a different variety of flower blossoming all year round, from blue nemophilas (you can see some 4.5 million of them during spring), to rose and zinnia in summer and kochia and cosmos in autumn. Featuring woods and gardens, the parks also offers visitors a mini amusement area and cycling courses, and is considered a must-see for anyone visiting Japan.
Cherry Blossom Avenue in Bonn, Germany
Speaking about cherry blossoms, we immediately refer to Japan, but to the happiness of Germans, there are some trees that appeal visitors with their amazing blossoms in the old town of the country’s former capital Bonn. There is one road in particular, called Heerstraße, where you can see the trees in full bloom for no more than one week in April. The scene is truly fascinating and not to be missed.
A complex of twelfth-century temples, the awe-inspiring Angkor is, undoubtedly, a place of great historical and cultural interest. The buildings are truly ancient and exclusive, but the real draw of this attraction are the many trees that seem to look like the ancient nation of Ents, the walking trees from the ‘Lord of the Rings’ movie.
Fields of Tea, China
A tea geek’s journey, visiting the fields of tea of China is an experience of a lifetime. The most famous tea in China comes from the hills around Hanghzou. The Longjing Village is Hangzhou’s ultimate getaway where you’ll find unique tea gardens with harvests of Dragon Well Green Tea, China’s most prized and expensive tea. So do not hesitate to try a cup of this wonderful green tea that is sure to connect you with some two thousand years of history.
Lake Retba, Senegal
Also known as Lac Rose, this amazing piece of nature finds its location in the north of the Cap Vert peninsula of Senegal. The lake got its name due to the Dunaliella salina algae, which makes its water look like ‘strawberry milk shake.’ One of the advantages of the lake is that here you can easily feel the experience of the Dead Sea and stay on the surface of the lakes because of its high salt content.
Sagano Bamboo Forest, Japan
One of Japan’s most amazing and tourist-friendly natural sites, the Sagano Bamboo Forest is located in Arashiyama District. Both peaceful and naturally aesthetic, this picture-perfect presents a rich and important part of Japanese culture, being a huge potential for providing oxygen. The highlight of the forest is perhaps the soft whispering that the wind makes while blowing amongst the bamboo, and amazingly this sound has been voted as one of the ‘100 must-be-preserved sounds of Japan.’ Within the park there are numerous walking trails, which provide visitors with a fantastic view of the huge green poles and leafy canopy.
