A glass-bottomed bridge in Hunan’s Shiniuzhai Geopark recently opened to the public, making this nightmare structure the world’s longest glass bridge. And probably the most terrifying.
How do you want your steak cooked? Medium, well done or slightly burnt by the roaring heat of a volcano? In the Canary Islands, hungry diners can sit down at a very unique restaurant that uses the heat from a volcano to cook its food.
A bakery sells baked goods. A butcher sells butchered meats. So a condomerie sells…? You got it, condoms! The Condomerie is the world’s first condom specialty shop and it’s located in (where else?) Amsterdam. Here, customers are treated to an entire store dedicated to the trusty condom.
There’s a floating resto-park just outside of Manila called Isdaan Tarlac that not only serves up delicious meals, but also offers a very unique way for people to release their anger after eating. It’s called the Tacsiyapo Wall and for just a few dollars, you can haul cups and plates at the wall while cursing in Kapampangan (the local dialect).
North Yungas Road isn’t for the faint of heart. In fact, it’s barely safe enough for experienced drivers who know the geography of the place. But every year people travel to this stretch of road – commonly known as ‘Death Road’ – to take in the scenery as they wind around 12-foot wide paths that are prone to heavy rains, cliff slides and, oh yeah, 2,000 foot drops without guard rails to catch your fall.
You’re not the only one thinking the Refuge du Goûter looks like a James Bond villain headquarters. With its shiny metal sides and remote location (3,835m above sea level), this mountain lodge was commissioned by the French Alpine Club and designed by the Swiss architect Hervé Dessimoz. And this is where thousands of climbers spend the night while making the final ascent to the summit of Europe’s highest peak.
If you’re irresponsible like me, you probably haven’t prepared for the zombie apocalypse. You probably think locking yourself in your home is the best way to survive but in reality, you’ll need a few supplies for when this event occurs (and it will!). So head on over to Las Vegas. Here you’ll find a superstore that stocks everything you’ll need for when the hungry zombies strike.

Sharing our ‘short’ adventures is quickly becoming a craze in the Instagram world. From my friends taking quick snaps with their Lego men, to celebrities like Chris Pratt taking pictures with his Lego doppelgänger. We are following Lego men all over the world off on adventures.
If you reminisce about your primary school days, you’re not alone. Who wouldn’t love to go back to Mrs Faulkner’s class and have a chalkboard duster thrown at them? Those were the days. And now you can get back in touch with your inner child, by heading to one of Perth’s most unique venues: The Classroom.
Here’s another excuse not to go to church! St. George’s church in the Czech Republic fell into disrepair in the 1960s after the cave fell in during a funeral. Taking that as a bad omen, locals abandoned the 14th-century-old church and held services outside rather than stepping foot inside the church. That is until artist Jakub Hadrava got involved.
Until this week, I thought not much thinking went into toilets around the world. I even thought maybe I was alone in my fascination of different toilets. But lucky for me, I’m just one of thousands (millions, perhaps) who have a slight fascination with how things work in different countries – and yes, that also includes the crapper.
In the small town of Avanos in Turkey, 16,000 locks of female hair hang from a pottery house. And while the Cappodocian area of Turkey has been well-known for its pottery for thousands of years, it’s this human hair museum that’s bringing in the tourists.
So adrenalin’s your middle name, huh? Then you’ll want to head on over to Iceland because this is where you get the opportunity to enter an incredible volcano, just 25 minutes from the heart of Reykjavík.
If you just can’t get enough of the Taj Mahal while you’re visiting India, perhaps you should opt to stay in a hotel where you can see it at all hours of the night. Like The Oberoi Amarvilas. Here, you can soak in the tub and get an incredible view of the massive mausoleum without having to tackle a single crowd.
