5 Mind-Blowing Travel Destinations That Awaken Your Natural Curiosity



The world is full of amazing places to see. Each continent has something unique and exciting to offer. Some travelers are always on the search for the next-best-thing and something inexplicably special.
To help satiate these cravings, here are five mind-blowing travel destinations that excite the curiosity...

5 Mind-Blowing Travel Destinations That Awaken Your Natural Curiosity

Petra, Jordan

There is nothing quite as stunning as the ancient city of Petra that is built into the side of massive cliffs.
Visitors are ushered through narrow caverns with walls reaching towards the sky, before coming to an
opening with the main site of Petra and countless other delicately created and long-standing
constructions.
Imaginative Traveller notes that there are numerous tombs, temples, public buildings,
and an impressive rock-hewn amphitheater as well as the Monastery, a vast structure rivaling even
the Treasury. This ancient city dates back to 300 B.C. and has been featured in several books and
films including Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

The Salar de Uyuni salt flats are one of the most stunning places in South America. This desert of
salt plays with human perception allowing for some defying illusions. During the dry season, it is
difficult to maintain depth perception as those far away only seem like microscopic people standing
nearby. The illusions don't stop during the wet season as the sky is perfectly reflected in a natural
mirror that extends all the way to the horizon. These salt flats are a must see.

Baltimore, USA

Many people don't consider the United States a historical place as many other countries have a
significantly longer history. However, there are still remnants of the US's past that make for a mind-
blowing travel destination.
Avis suggests that visitors enjoy the beautiful architecture of the city at
historic sites such as the Baltimore Basilica, the first basilica in America, and the Lloyd Street
Synagogue, the oldest synagogue in the country. Drive down the brick-paved streets to reach famous
breweries, the Walters Art Museum, or the dozens of historic war sites, such as Fort McHenry, within
an hour’s drive of the city.

The Pyramids, Egypt

No list of mind-blowing travel destinations is complete without including the stunning pyramids of
Egypt. These colossal structures date back centuries and archaeologists are still not sure how they
were constructed by humans. In fact, they are an impressive feat by even today's standards.
Interesting Engineering says that the Pyramid of Giza was built 4500 years ago in Egypt, yet it
remained as the tallest man-made building until the 19th century. That means it stood its place as the
tallest building for 3800 years!

Dubai, U.A.E.

Imagine a walking through a barren desert with sand as far as the eye can see, and then stumbling
upon a metropolitan oasis the size of New York. This accurately describes the stunning city of Dubai
in the United Arab Emirates. Dubai was built in the middle of the desert and acts as an oasis of air-
conditioning, massive skyscrapers and other feats of engineering. In fact, the tallest building in the
world and some of the most popular man-made islands are located here.

Mind-blowing places are present around the entire world and located in every continent. These five
travel destinations are a great place to start when wanting to excite that curiosity.
