8. Glass Bridge, China

If you believe your life has gotten boring in the last couple of months, you might want to visit this glass bridge known as the East Taiheng Glasswalk, in Hubei, China. Chinese architects have really outdone themselves this time. Not only is this bridge made out of glass (which already gives us the chills), but it also has a terrifying cracking effect. So along with feeling like you’re falling, you’ll also see yourself going down.

9. Charybdis Fountain, Northern England

Charybdis is the largest air sculpture-funnel, which allowed its creator to explore the elements of water more creatively.

According to Greek mythology, in the Sicilian Sea, there were 2 mermaids named Charybdis and Scylla. Charybdis stole Hercules’ oxen, and Zeus struck her with lightning which resulted in a big swirling vortex that swallowed up many ships.

This story inspired William Pye to create a miracle fountain he called Charybdis. In this funnel, water moves in a circle in a transparent acrylic cylinder and forms an air vortex in the center of the whirlpool.

Waitomo, which lies on one of the largest islands of New Zealand, is famous for its impressive limestone caves, which are not only striking on their own but are also even more special because of the numerous fireflies that call the underground mazes their home. Thousands of tiny insects emit phosphorescent light, creating surreal light installations.

If you’d love to feel as though you’d stepped foot onto some mysterious land of magical creatures, you absolutely need to visit this place.

Last, but certainly not least on this list, is the Swarovski Crystal Head Fountain located in Innsbruck, Austria.

The fountain was invented by the Austrian artist, Andre Heller. Inside the building, there is the Swarovski Museum, which is made in the form of a huge head covered in grass. Water flows magnificently from the “mouth” of the head, and the “eyes” are made of Swarovski glass.
