World's Strangest Places
Lonely Planet Kids
Discover the planet’s weirdest and most wonderful places. Our travel experts have found 40 of the planet’s most bizarre sights and natural wonders – and ranked them in order of their oddness! With jaw-dropping facts and amazing photos, we reveal the incredible power of nature, amazing feats of human construction and the world’s most mysterious locations.
The world is full of beautiful and strange places to visit and marvel at. Some are thousands of years old, others modern and recently discovered. Inside World’s Strangest Places, kids will discover the city where everything is underground, a post office you need a swimsuit to visit, and secret locations that, well, are far too secret to mention here. And with our ‘strange-o-meter’, they can compare each place based on its uniqueness, wow factor, surreality and mysteriousness.
