Being an adventure freak and a travel enthusiast myself, I cannot really stop myself from experimenting new places and trust me; luxury travel into a luxury destination doesn’t make any sense to me. If you are one of those travel freaks who can visit any places that offers thrills, then here are a few creepy places I have picked up for you –
- Aokigahara Forest, Japan – Aokigahara Forest or the “Suicide Forest” is another creepy place in the world. Why is it termed as suicide forest; because the forest is filled with the decomposing remains of so many Japanese citizens that there are people hired to venture into it and report on any new findings. The place is absurdly lonely and the wide density of the forest blocks all the wind that no wildlife can exist due to the creepy and suffocating environment. Japanese legends call the forest as the forest of the demons!
- Catacombs of Paris, France – This huge underground cemetery is filled with the remains of around six million people since the late 18th century. You can see those bones hanging around! Quite a creepy yet quite famous tourist place!
- Island of the Dolls, Mexico – So the legend for this place goes as the caretaker named Julián Santana Barrera of the island once found a girl drowned in the surrounding water of the place. Soon after, a doll was floating on the same water and so Julián hung the doll in one of the trees as a respect to the dead girl’s spirit. Ever since, until the time Julián died drowning at the same place, he kept hanging dolls in the tress. The place is creepy, yet a very famous tourist spot!
So start backpacking and get yourself the treat of your lifetime.
