At the very first glance, Zhangye Danxia looks like a place from Oz or a manipulated picture straight out of the hands of a Photoshop guru – but in this case, you can trust your eyes.

Though be prepared it’s not easy to get close to this colorful place, you have to take a flight or a bus ride from the biggest cities of China and that can take up to 12 hours.

This place sure looks like it has been invaded by aliens, but Socotra Island is actually populated by 40,000 residents, no UFO appearances reported, and it has amazing wildlife. At times the island is called the lost place and sure it looks like a lost paradise with dragon’s blood trees and the bizarrely shaped bottle trees. If you are one of those who love to relax on the beach here’s some good news: the beautiful Amoak white sand beach is waiting for you and it’s just as spectacular as the other parts of the island.
Deception Island, Antarctica

Not a fan of hot and trendy places? Well, Deception Island certainly won’t disappoint you. It’s far far away from the middle latitudes and it’s only populated by a couple of British and Russian expeditors and about 200,000 chinstrap penguins. Besides being the land of the snow and ice, Deception Island in Antarctica also lies inside a volcano, so if geography is your thing, be sure to book your tickets to this little island. And while you are there, here’s a tip: if you’re looking for a hot tub just dig a hole in the ground and ta-dah there’s hot, volcanic water for you!
St Kilda, Scotland

Hauntingly peaceful and quiet. St Kilda is an isolated archipelago about 50 miles from the shores of Scotland. It’s one of those places that hasn’t been touched by the hands of the modern days. It has no roads, no shops and it has had no official residents since 1930. Even though the ghostly island is popular amongst those who are looking for a way out from the big city life and doesn’t want to go far away from Europe. Once you visited this place, you definitely won’t forget those green valleys of St Kilda.
Can you imagine that there’s a place in America where the mail is still delivered on a mule? Welcome to Supai! This beautiful little town has approximately 500 residents and no road leads there, because it’s located somewhere in the bottom of the Grand Canyon. But if you’re brave enough to go there on your own two feet or by horse it’s going to worth the traveling time. Supai has an amazing oasis, spectacular view on the Grand Canyon and friendly residents who are willing to show you around the Canyon.
