    Looking to get away from it all? Tired of the same old get-aways? Aquiziam has come up with a list of Ten Strange Places around the world.

    The list is fascinating and is complete with pictures of the locations. They range from the Nine Hells of Beppu to the Great Blue Hole of Belize. These places are real, although the reasons for their particular oddities are not always clear.


    My favorite on the list is the Mount Sanqing National Park in China, an area of steep cliffs and rock formations, lush landscape, and misty, foggy weather.
