Craziest Places in Asia That Will Blow Your Mind
Hanging Coffins, Sagada, Philippines
Nestled on rocks, these hanging coffins is one great reason to visit the country. Yes, they’re creepy and strange, but they are also an incredible sight to be hold. Curious minds, too, can learn the stories behind these coffins.
Seriously, where else in the world can we see hanging coffins (and sometimes, bones) on the side of a cave?
Taj Mahal, India
In 1631, Shah Jahan commissioned the building of this mausoleum in memory of his second wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died giving birth to Gauhara Begum, their 14th child. This place has a lovely garden that symbolizes heaven on earth, and a monument of the mogul’s undying love.
So be sure to check out this magnificent work of architecture if you ever head to India.
Penis Shrine, Phranang Cave Beach, Railay, Thailand
Now this is pretty cool. In Railay, Thailand, you will be welcomed by the small cave that holds an unbelievable type of shrine – a penis shrine! Yes, other than blue water and white sand, this penis shrine is a must-visit for tourists.
It’s been said that if you want to conceive a child, this is the place to go. Folks believe the shrine gives not only fertility, but also good luck.
Bokeo Nature Reserve, Laos
If you love nature exploration, visit this place at least once in your life! It’s a nature reserve built to protect the black-cheeked gibbons. They were believed to have gone extinct a while ago, but were discovered here. Now, this place is protected and so are these animals.
Calauit Safari, Palawan, Philippines
You don’t have to travel all the way to Africa for a safari adventure. The wild animals you’re looking for might just be around the corner at Calauit Safari in the Philippines. Wild boars, water bucks, giraffes and zebras found their way here.
Interestingly, they were brought to the country during a great drought as well as the Kenyan War, to keep them from harm. So it’ll be a little bit of Africa for you!
Vientiane Buddha Park, Vientiane, Laos
If you’re always fascinated by statues, then this park will take you to cloud nine. You won’t see one but random statues lined up in the sprawling gardens. They’re animals, gods, goddesses, and just about any shrine-deserving figures, such as King Nagas and the Buddha.
