Travelling is one of the things that everyone does to consider that they have lived their lives to the fullest. To some, it is the reason they live and work, to see the world’s culture and magnificent landscapes.
This list is based on the uniqueness of the place and the story behind it. It is more exciting if the place comes with a mysterious story. So, before we leave the land of the living, here are 5 places that you have to visit before you die:
- Easter Island (Chile)
Talk about creepy and mysterious at the same time. This is a remote inhabited island that boasts 887 monolithic stone “heads” and it is said to be the tale of the effects of overpopulation and running out of resources. It is quite eerie looking at the stone heads as it appears to be randomly looking at the horizon. There is a mysterious moai in this island that is transported through the island from a single quarry site without knowing how they do it. It is also called as Rapa Nui or Isla de Pascua, it is a triangular shape in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Fill your adventures with mystery as you uncover Easter Island’s past. Perhaps you can discover the secrets of these ancient artefacts.
- The Louvre (France)
Paris, the romantic city, famous for a lot of marvellous landmarks and sights. One of the most sought after sight here is the Louvre. It is the most visited museum with 380,000 artefacts on display for the delight of tourists. It is composed of ancient Egyptian antiques and pieces from the Middle Ages. From the chapel of Akhethetep to Michelangelo’s the Slaves, the Louvre is a rich site for ancient wonder and mystery that would gain a spot on your bucket list.
- Stonehenge (UK)
Stonehenge was built between 3,000 B.C and 2,000 B.C. and is one of the most jaw-dropping prehistoric megalithic monuments in the world. It is a spiritual site of Neo-Druidry and an iconic England attraction that earned its way up to movies and documentaries. One of the great mysteries here is how the ancient people balanced and put up this archaeological wonder. Up to now, the reason why the Stonehenge was built is still unknown.
- Taj Mahal (India)
Love can move mountains, such devotion like the India’s Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, in 1632. The Taj Mahal is a marble-white mausoleum designed by Afghan Ustad-Ahmad Lahori. It is now considered today as one of the most romantic places, in spite of its nature to be a mausoleum. Who knows, you may design your burial place like the Taj Mahal.
- The Great Wall of China (China)
The only structure that can be seen in space, the Great Wall of China lives up to its name. With more than 20,000 km in length, the reason for putting up such wall is to keep out the invaders from entering China’s homeland. Built around 220 B.C under the Qin Shin Huang, it reflects military might and the strength of the emperors in China.
