Cities do the weirdest things to lure tourists to their doorstep. While tourism can certainly be a nice source of income for any city, the attractions used to lure people from all around the world can be a bit … odd.
Let’s take a look at some of the most unusual tourist attractions existing in the world right now.
Gnomesville, Ferguson Valley
It’s as the name suggests and exactly as the name suggests. In Ferguson Valley, which is in western Australia, the town has created an entire village of garden gnomes. They have over 3000 gnomes to date and I’m pretty sure that this is not where you want to be when the shrooms hit.
Mano Del Desierto, Chile
My Spanish isn’t very good but I was thinking this was either a hand made of desserts or a hand in the desert. Turns out it was the latter. I must admit I’m a bit disappointed now. I mean, it’s a cool-looking huge hand in the desert, but it’s not a huge hand-shaped cake, so what’s the use?
Pool Of The 21st Century Museum Of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa
That’s quite a mouthful, isn’t it? This Japanese museum has a pool that, well, isn’t a real pool. It’s just a surface of water that you can look through, but you can also walk underneath. Needless to say, this can lead to some unique optical illusions where it looks as if the people underneath are standing in the pool.
