Top Ten Fun Places to go around the world

There are number of fun places to go around the world but some of them are simply amazing. We will see these places one by one.

10. Swedish Naval Base:

This base is developed in a rock. The construction of the base started in 1950 and was completed 19 years later in 1969. During the construction about 1.5 million tons of rock were removed. It has 3 docks, originally designed for destroyers and submarines. The underground base itself has an area of several km² and is connected by 20 km (12 mi) of underground roads. A 3 km (1.9 mi) long, dangerously narrow road tunnel running some 70 metres (230 ft) under the sea level connects the mainland and Muskö island.

9. The Singing Tree:

The Singing Ringing Tree is a wind powered sound sculpture resembling a tree set in the landscape of the Pennine hill range overlooking Burnley, in Lancashire, England.

Completed in 2006, it is part of the series of four sculptures within the Panopticons arts and regeneration project created by the East Lancashire Environmental Arts Network (ELEAN). The project was set up to erect a series of 21st-century landmarks, or Panopticons (structures providing a comprehensive view), across East Lancashire as symbols of the renaissance of the area.

Designed by architects Mike Tonkin and Anna Liu of Tonkin Liu, the Singing Ringing Tree is a 3-metre tall construction comprising pipes of galvanised steel which harness the energy of the wind to produce a slightly discordant and penetrating choral sound covering a range of several octaves. Some of the pipes are primarily structural and visual elements, while others have been cut across their width enabling the sound. The harmonic and singing qualities of the tree were produced by tuning the pipes according to their length by adding holes to the underside of each.

In 2007, the sculpture won (along with 13 other candidates) the National Award of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for architectural excellence. In March of 2017, a second Singing Ringing Tree was set on the outskirts of Austin, Texas in the United States in the rural area of a small town called Pflugerville.

8. Elephant Rock in New Zealand:

On the North Taranaki coast, near Tongaporutu, you can see two (formerly three) 25 metre rock formations known as the Three Sisters and fun places to go around the world. Next to the sisters is another formation called Elephant Rock which, as you would expect, looks a lot like an elephant. Interestingly, there were four sisters at the turn of the century, but the sea is claiming them one at a time.

For great views of the Three Sisters, turn down Pilot Road, which is on the seaward side of State Highway 3 north of the Tongaporutu Bridge. If you want to get down on the sand with the formations, turn off South Highway 3 down Clifton Road, which is south of the Tongaporutu Bridge. At low tide you can walk alongside the river and around the point to find the formations. In nearby caves you can also view a rock drawing of a curious six-toed foot.

7. Giant Piano House China:

A house shaped like a giant glittering grand piano and a violin. Located in Huainan, China and built in 2007 by architectural students at Hefei University of Technology, this is truly, well, captivating. According to Architizer, you access the body of the building (the piano) via escalators inside the glass violin. Although it’s currently being used as a showroom for city planners, we think it would be the perfect place for a pop star with an expendable income and a love for real estate.

2. Forest Lake, Tyumen, Russia:

This lake sits among a massive forest in the backwoods of Russia. Researchers aren’t exactly sure of the coordinates of this mysterious lake, and nobody is certain how it formed in the middle of a dense forest. According to locals, the lake can be found nestled somewhere in the Tyumen region of Russia. We wonder if there are any interesting creatures living in that murky water.  Some of these places are so remote and so impossible to access that it would take plenty of efforts, time and skills. Yet, we know about the stunning beauty of these places thanks to the images we have seen from the air. May be these places are so beautiful and captivating as humans have not set foot there and they remained thus pristine in their beauty.

1. Dead Sea:

It is top of the list fun places to go around the world. The Dead Sea, also known as the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west. It’s a hypersaline lake that is truly one of Earth’s unique places.The surface and shores of the Dead Sea are 423 metres (1,388 ft) below sea level, making it Earth’s lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea’s unusually high salt concentration means that people can easily float in the Dead Sea due to natural buoyancy. So you will not be drowned in it. It is too saline that nothing can exist in it.
