You may be contented with an occasional trip to the beach or a safari or you may be adventurous and enthralling. Muthaiga Travel can promise to plan for you a trip to any part of the world. Most of the places on this planet earth are easily accessible, but there are some that are just left off isolated and unattended. The 10 Places in the World you would absolutely like to visit once in your lifetime, but almost have no chance to do so are:
The Queen’s Bedroom, U.K.
The Queen’s Bedroom, built in 1705, is in the Buckingham Palace. A man tried to break in the place and hide in the Queen’s bedroom even though the palace was guarded heavily. This happened in 1982. Up to date date, it is said that he was the only man who has seen the interior of the palace without a building permit or an official Royal Family invitation. If you are one like him, there are chances that you will see it only once in this lifetime.
Aldwych Tube Station, U.K.
It was a subway station that was active during the 2nd World War. It was also used as a hiding place for National Gallery artworks and air raid shelter. The trains, however, stopped running in 1994, and since then the whole station is left unused. There are ancient elevators, an old lobby, and a monument to early 1990s with vintage tracks. This station is open for the tourists only sometimes on special occasions.
Fort Knox- Kentucky, USA
Large portions of fold and other precious items were stored in the building. At present, it stores about four thousand five hundred metric tons of pure gold built inside granite walls and protected by a door that is blast-proof. If you have to enter inside the building, you require a ten part secret code that is held by ten different people all spread in different locations. Due to this fact, it has the saying that goes like this, “As impenetrable as Fort Knox”.
Woomera Prohibited Area, Australia
This area covers about 124,000 sq. km. and it is an Australian military testing range. This area is restricted, but the nearby town of Woomera is open for the tourists to travel. You will like to visit this area for one reason, however, also stay away from it for another reason. There are sufficient quantities of iron ore, minable gold, uranium, opals, etc that is unreachable for the common public. It is nothing but a minefield, where un-launched war material is seen lying around in large amounts. So, even if one wanders around this region, there’s a possibility that their face may get blown off. Anyways, it’s definitely not a good destination option to spend your weekend or picnic time.
Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway
The Svalbard Global Seed Vault was built on an isolated island in the North Sea out of the fear that all the sci-fi scenarios regarding the end of the world may indeed come true. It is home to more than two hundred and fifty crop seeds that are shipped worldwide from gene banks with an appropriate cost exceeding nine million dollars. Nobody can enter the vault; however plant breeders, researchers can request seeds from the banks. If at all you enter it, you will experience the greatest hope for agriculture in the form of some earthly disaster or a polar ice cap melt.
Lascaux Caves, France
There are archaeological findings in the cave paintings and footprints preserved perfectly of human beings that lived ten and thousands of years ago. The caves were closed to the public due to the fear of fungal infection due to human presence. Only a small group of people can enter the cave on rare occasions for few minutes.
Poveglia Island, Italy
It is a haunted place now and once was a dumping ground for the deceased, dying and sick. Then it became a quarantine zone where many ill people were deported. Presently, it is closed both for the tourists and locals.
It is a closed military town in Russia. Some people believe it is a treasury, a food storage, mining site while others believe it is a nuclear bunker.
Jiangsu National Security Education Museum, China
This museum houses top secret documents, gun disguised as lipstick, gadgets from the history of Chinese espionage, maps hidden in a deck of cards and hollowed-out coins to cover the documents. Chinese nationals are the only people who are allowed to enter this museum as they do not trust foreigners with their susceptible detective information.
Room 39, North Korea
It’s hard enough getting into North Korea. Now imagine trying to get into Room 39, a secretive North Korean government facility home.
