1.THE REFLECTING DESERT

No, it’s not photoshopped! really unique place in the world that shouldn’t be missed is Salar de Uyuni or “salt flats” which is one of the highlights of a trip to Bolivia. It’s the world’s largest salt flat and definitely a dream destination. When it rains, it becomes the world’s largest mirror. The water on the salt flats never reaches a depth of more than 6 inches (15 centimeters) so you may have an exclusive sensation of walking on the surface of a mirror.Where does the reflection end and the sky begin?

4.LAKE HILLIER
Lake Hillier situated right on the edge of Recherché Archipelago’s largest island in Australia may remind you of a bubble-gum or a strawberry milk shake, ’cause the color of this lake is PINK. It’s likely that there’s a vast underwater strawberry meadow, because scientists are not really sure why the water is pink.The meadow of strawberries or not, you’re probably just curious whether or not you can swim in lake Hiller. Well, here’s the good news, it’s just a really salty lake. It is perfectly safe for swimming and it doesn’t seem to have any adverse effects on people or local wildlife.

5.PAMUKKALE HOT SPRINGS
Pamukkale means “The Cotton Castle” or “The Cotton Fortress” in Turkish, It is a natural site with snow white stalactites, hot springs and travertines and terraces of carbonate mineralsleft by the flowing water. It is widely known as the 8th Wonder of the World by Turkish people. To keep the travertines white it was forbidden to walk on them, but it’s possible to walk on some of them barefoot. This spot is a must-see for those who travel to Turkey, but you should hurry up to visit it ASAP because it may disappear in coming years.lol

OMG! These are really nice places to be. Now I have more reasons to believe in God who deliberately created diversity.

I hope to be at some of those places for tourism sake someday!
