  • 1. By Cox & Kings
  • 2. Noodle Bath Japan
    • One day a man grew weary of the mundane routing of using soap and water and decided to have a bath in noodles. Now it’s a craze. Apparently, pepper collagen, the ingredient used in pork broth improves metabolism and clears your skin. Acne is also said to vanish after one session. This same bath previously filled their spas with beaujolais wine and chocolate.
  • 3. Vale de la prehistoria Cuba
    • A milieu of life-size prehistoric creatures completed by inmates from a nearby prison. Spread over an area of 11 hectares, the 200 life-sized prehistoric creatures in the Santiago de Cuba province range from the brontosaurus to cave men, creating a kind of Communist theme park with shades of the Flintstones thrown in.
  • 4. Karni Mata Temple India
    • The Karni Mata temple is not only a refuge for rodents but a place where they are worshipped as well. It was built in the early twentieth century by Maharaja Ganga Singh of Bikaner in reverence to Karni Mata, a female Hindu sage.
    • So highly are rats revered here that killing one by accident will require replacement with a replica in solid gold.
  • 5. International Friendship Exhibition Hall North Korea
    • The International Friendship Exhibition Hall houses 90, 000 or more gifts accumulated over the years by the great leader Kim Il Sung. His well-wishers include former Soviet prime ministers Gregory Malenkov and Nikolai Bulganin, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, Cuba’s Fidel Castro and Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe.
    • The gifts are even more interesting -silver chopsticks from Mongolia, a gold cigarette case presented by Marshall Tito of Yugoslavia, chess boards from Colonel Qaddafi and a grinning alligator offering drinks from a wooden tray sent all the way from Nicaragua.
  • 6. Isla de las Munecas Mexico
    • Julián Santana Barrera collected discarded dolls. Legend had it that he did it  to appease the spirit of a girl who drowned in the river. Travelling through the canals of Xochimico, one can glimpse upon this bizarre collection. Interestingly enough, Barrera succumbed to the same fate as that little girl for whom he labored so hard.
  • 7. Cockroaches Hall of Fame United States
    • Michael Bohdan’s Cockroaches Hall of Fame in Plano, Texas includes famous roach personalities such as Ross Peroach, David Letteroach and Marlin Monroach. Liberoachi is shown in this picture.
    • However, if you are not into dead cockroaches, he has Madagascar hissing roaches as well…
  • 8. Bang Kwang Prison Thailand
    • For a price you can interact with the inmates, some of them western travelers whose holiday went horribly wrong. Showcasing 7000 specimens imprisoned for crimes ranging from drug smuggling to murder, the Bang Kwang Prison is good teacher of what crimes to not commit in Thailand.
  • 9. Neutrality Arch Turkmenistan
    • Saparmurat Niyazov. (Turkmenistan’s leader after independence) etched his name onto everything in the country, but most famously he built for himself the  Neutrality Arch. His statue is placed on top, rotating constantly so that it always faces the sun.
    • And it’s somewhat ironic that a man who ruled with an iron-fist named it the “Neutrality” Arch.  
  • 10. Sekigahara War World Japan
    • A theme park in the Gifu prefecture recreates the great battle of Sekigahara replete with life size concrete structures of beheading, ritual suicides and hand to hand combat. In addition, the song titled ‘Ah, the decisive battle of Sekigahara’ on an endless loop will entertain you for the course of your visit.
  • 11. Karner Bone House Austria
    • The Karner Bone House is noted for being host to painted skulls in decorations such as flowers, leaves and serpents. Why? Because of the acute lack of space and the urgent need to recycle graves. Very surprising when you consider only 2,100 skulls of the 30,000 known deaths and burials were documented.
