Unique Travel Destinations
If you love traveling, you will soon reach a point where you get tired of the usual travel destinations and tourist traps. Yes, some things need to be seen, but unique destinations will soon top your list of things to see.

So, what is a unique travel destination? Well, many people interpret the phrase differently. It can be a place where there is next to no infrastructure to accommodate travelers or a place that has such infrastructure, but isn't overwhelmed with travelers. While everyone has their specific definition, the following spots offer a little of both.

If you are fanatical about both fishing and traveling, there is one very unique spot on the planet that will do the trick. In this case, we are talking about Siberia. Yes, that Siberia. The one with the gulags and harshest of winters. The little secret that most people don't know about Siberia is it has incredible salmon fishing and the fishing is tremendous because there are few hearty souls working the fishing spots. Getting to Siberia is not particularly difficult, but there can be a lot of red tape involved. You want to hook up with a reputable online guide and work through them to get the appropriate papers from the Russian government.

If you consider cooking a hobby, you also might consider spending some time in Siena, Italy. Siena is a mountain top fortress that has converted into a town in our modern times. When you visit, it is like stepping back into the middle ages of Europe. The town is quaint and everything is cobblestones. Cars are rarely allowed onto the streets. While all of this might be enough reason to visit, you can also attend cooking classes. Verbena Blu Viaggi can set you up with one day classes.

If you like hiking, Iya Valley in Japan is definitely a place to visit. It is one of the three hidden valleys of Japan and is located on Shikoku. Hiking into the valley used to be a hike back into antiquity. The area is stunningly beautiful and the few people live by older Japanese customs. It used to be a major, difficult hike just to get to the launching point of the hike into the valley. In recent years, civilization has come to the area for better or worse. You can now practically take a bus up to the hike. Iya Valley is still worth the trip however as it is fairly pristine and not overrun.

Whatever your idea of a unique travel destination, the above three destinations should suffice. Given the size of our planet, however, there are certainly plenty of others as well!
