The Wat Rong Khun Buddhist and Hindu temple is not hard to miss, considering all of the white, and the reflection in the surrounding water is not too shabby either. Built in 1997 and designed by artist Chalermchai Kositpipat, this unique building is a favorite for tourists.

The temple in these photos is unbelievable. It is made entirely out of beer bottles. That means the steps, the walls, the columns, all of it. It is absolutely beautiful but somebody has to be drinking a lot of beer.

Such a snake temple is situated in Penang, Malaysia. You can find there many kinds of snakes and the majority of them are deadly. But it doesn’t stop people to come there as it seems that snakes don’t mind the presence of humans. The local legend says that the temple was built by a monk who gave shelter to several snakes first; then, snakes just kept coming over there.

Would you like to go there? I know for sure that I’ll never go there ;)

Netherlands are a very interesting country. They make plenty of bizarre creative stuff like for example this ‘Trash Temple.’ The temple is situated in an old neighborhood in the Rotterdam port area. It is 7m high, 25m long and 10m wide. Temple of Trash was built with 100 tons of pressed bales of PET bottles.
I’d like to see it one day!

Mt. Huashan is famous for its egregious cliffs. One cliff seems to be steeper than the previous one. The temple for God of Mt. Huashan is situated on the South Peak, one of the most difficult cliffs to climb.
If you like adventure vacations it is absolutely the place to go. It’s dangerous, tough and exciting. I would definitely do this ))
