Revisit Your Bucket List: Six Unbelievable Places To Go In 2016

Are you the adventurous sort? Do you want to go somewhere that's exciting, but maybe a bit removed from the typical tourist hot spots? Here are a collection of five interesting places that you might want to consider for any trips in the coming year!

Great Blue Hole, Belize


If you have gone scuba diving at least 24 times, you can check out this massive underwater sinkhole that's more than 400 feet deep. The water is often crystal clear. While there are exotic species of fish to find, the main attraction here is a dark, underwater cave, making this trip a good contrast if you've already been on the popular "colorful" dives.

Tsingy de Bemaraha, Madagascar


Also known as the "Stone Forest" or "Forest of Knives." The huge limestone pillars of this national park make it unfit for human habitation, but home to many different animals, including eleven species of lemur. If you come for a hike, make sure to bring thick boots: tsingy means "place where you cannot walk barefoot."

Cappadocia, Turkey


This region is full of strange rock formations called "fairy chimneys," as well as many caves where homes and even whole underground cities have historically existed. If you like history and exploration, this place will be a marvel. Otherwise, there are hot air balloons so you can see the strange and breathtaking landscape from above!

Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia


At more than 4,000 square miles, this is the world's largest salt flat. Even the local hotels are made mostly of massive blocks of salt! One of the main attractions is to come after the rain, when the salty white ground turns into a massive mirror. You can also see the "train cemetery," where old locomotives have broken down, or look for the numerous animals that live in the area, most particularly flamingos.

Blue Ridge Mountains, USA


Famous for providing the backdrop to a fair share of American history, these mountains offer stunning vistas, gorgeous hiking paths, and a range-long road where drivers can cruise at the top of the world. Whether you go in the summer for a challenging hike, in autumn to take in the stunning fall colors, or in the wintertime for some Appalachian skiing, these mountains have plenty to offer. Budget-minded travelers wishing to explore the mountains can save on lodging in Staunton, VA by using Red Roof Inn coupons from Discountrue.

Socotra, Yemen


This archipelago in the Indian Ocean has been described as the most alien-looking place on Earth. It has mountains, caves and other odd geological features. Perhaps even more notable are its animals and plants: this small area has more than 800 rare species, a third of which are unique to this area.

So, if you are looking for a vacation and want to try something exciting, fun and off the beaten path, ones of these exotic locations may be just what you are looking for. Bon voyage!
