Well here at Visit a lot it’s our sole purpose to bring you the most obscure, remote and weird holidays from around the world. So below you will find every location that we have reviewed, some of them are standard day trips, others are fully fledged holidays, but what binds them all together is their uniqueness and the fact that you are looking at a place that only a small proportion of the world have every visited.
