8. Matmâta Tunisia

The inhabitants of Matmâta dug holes into the ground and then tunnels into the walls in order to achieve these unusual dwellings. These ancient homes, some of the strangest places to live in the world, were built so far back that no one remembers exactly when or why they were fashioned this way. One legend states that the inhabitants simply occupied the caves left behind by desert monsters, while others say that Berbers created them in order to hide from Egyptians.

10. John O Groats

John O Groats is a small town of only 300 residents, situated at the most northern point in England. During winter, this place becomes very unfriendly, with heavy snows and dense fog. The inhabitants don’t see any stranger around for the entire winter months, even though during summer, there are many tourists visiting the town and the lighthouse situated only 2.5 km further.
