YOU’VE been thrillseeking at Alton Towers and seen the model village at Legoland but perhaps it’s time to leave the kids at home and go in search of a more unique adventure.
From bathing in red wine to erotic theme parks, there is a plethora of weird, wonderful and sometimes saucy tourist attractions out there, according to The Sun.
So grab your suitcase, sunscreen and selfie stick and head off to one of the most peculiar holiday sights the world has to offer.
PENIS PARK, SOUTH KOREA
The legend goes that a hardworking fisherman left his virgin girlfriend on the rocks while he caught fish in the sea. A dreadful storm hit and the young girl died.
Following her death none of the villagers were able to catch any fish so they tried to please the virgin by surrounding the area with giant model penises.
Apparently this was success and they were able to resume fishing as normal. Today the park has dozens of giant manhood models as well as sexual icons, cultural art and history of the fishing village.
GUM WALL, SEATTLE
This germtastic tourist attraction is a local landmark in downtown Seattle.
The Market Theatre Gum Wall attracts cheerful chewers from all over who flock to the bizarre attraction to contribute their saliva soaked gum. In some areas the thick covering is several centimetres thick.
In 2015 the wall was completely cleaned but has quickly been restored to its former colourful glory.
KINGDOM OF THE LITTLE PEOPLE, CHINA
One of the most controversial attractions on our list this Chinese park only hires employs staff who are shorter than 129cm.
The staff then perform for visitors, singing, dancing and acting out fairy tales and ballets.
Erotikaland is yet to open its doors but when work is completed in 2018 it promises to be a sea of saucy sights.
Brazil’s first adult-only sex theme park will feature cinemas with seats that vibrate, a train of pleasure, go-go boys and girls, a nudist pool and genitalia shaped bumper car rides.
DIG THIS, LAS VEGAS
Big kids form an orderly queue at Las Vegas fun-park Dig This. It offers adults the opportunity to get behind the wheel of some of the biggest construction vehicles in the business.
Try your hand at bulldozing, excavating and digging in their giant sandpit.
JEJU LOVELAND, SOUTH KOREA
Just 17km away from Jeju International Airport is South Korea’s Loveland.
A haven for all things erotic the park plays host to 140 different sexually themed works of art.
Established in 2004 by a group of local art students the park is designed to “highlight natural beauty of sexuality”.
Sitting on the western side of Nebraska’s Sandhills, Carhenge was built by Jim Reinders in memory of his late father.
The unique “car sculpture” has been carefully crafted from 38 defunct vehicles.
Completely free of charge, visitors can drop by to marvel at the spray-silver installation any day of the week.
YUNESSUN SPA RESORT, JAPAN
After a long day at work, we’ve all contemplated getting in a bath tub full of red wine but at this spa in Japan that dream can become a reality.
Guests are invited to immerse themselves in a pool full of red wine for a boozy “cleanse”.
Unfortunately you’ve got to plan you trip well as the body-rejuvenating service is only available for 12 days of the year and for those who prefer an alternative tipple, green tea, sake and coffee baths are also on offer.
HAW PAR VILLA, SINGAPORE
This gruesome theme park contains 150 giant models depicting scenes from Chinese mythology.
The attractions are often nightmare-inducing scenes of graphic violence, so not one for the faint-hearted.
KUTNA HORA BONE CHURCH, CZECH REPUBLIC
This spectacular church is just an hour outside of Czech Republic’s capital city, Prague.
The chapel’s walls are lined with bones and skulls all ornately arranged and displayed.
It is estimated to house the remains of between 40,000 and 70,000 people, the majority of whom are thought to have died in the plague in the early 1300s.
