To learn more about exploring off-the-beaten path from an expert, we reached out to Travel Writer and Content Creator King Siu, who was kind enough to have a chat with Pictolic about some of the most unique places he’s ever traveled to.

“I've always been fascinated by Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Giza, especially because of all the mystery that surrounds them, so those are famous unique destinations that I've been lucky enough to visit that still give me chills when I think about them,” King shared.

“More recently, I visited the underground city of Kaymakli in the Cappadocia region of Turkiye,” he continued. “If you're not familiar with it, it's an underground city that once had a population of about 5,000 and consists of many levels of natural and excavated cave networks. It was so surreal to be there exploring miles of underground caves where people lived out their entire lives many centuries before.”

“The forests in New Zealand also took my breath away, and anyone who has seen the Lord of the Rings movies will know what I'm talking about,” King added.

The travel expert also shared that years ago he had the unique opportunity to stay in a hostel in a favela in Rio de Janeiro. “Favelas are shanty towns that have a reputation for being very dangerous, as they are usually controlled by drug cartels, and this reputation is well deserved as it's not unusual for residents to be openly carrying assault rifles, or for shootouts to occur on the streets,” King explained. 

“Let's just say that my stay there was a week I'll never forget. I don't advise it unless you know what you're doing or are with someone who does, which was the case for me and why I'm alive to tell this tale,” the traveler noted. “I can't imagine many guides advising you to stay in a favela (did I mention they're dangerous?), and I only went on my adventure because a Brazilian friend had recommended and arranged this adventure. I thought I was going to die in the first 24 hours, but I'm so glad I got to experience it, and not dying was good too.”

King also noted that unique spots don't always have to be larger than life or historical, they can be anything that you find interesting. “Harry Potter fans might want to visit Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross Station in London,” he told Bored Panda. “I visited the narrowest street in the world - Rue du Chat-qui-Pêche - in Paris and found it a fun experience because I made it my own with a silly photo shoot. My love of McDonald's drew me to the largest McDonald's in the world in Orlando, Florida, and I had a delicious time.”

But King still hasn’t seen everything he would like to. “A couple of places that are high on my list to visit someday are Chernobyl, which many may know as the site of the worst nuclear power plant disaster in history or a recent HBO series; and a destination that'll interest anyone who has a desire to be creeped out during their travels - La Isla de las Muñecas or The Island of the Dolls,” he shared. “This island just south of Mexico City is just that, an island full of abandoned dolls. I'll leave it to you to Google it and creep yourself out.”
