Russian report Krasanya Polyana has been recommended the best followed by Venice Carnival, Mount Fuji, Cape Point and Esa’ala Caves.
Located in Caucasus Mountains in Russia, Krasanya Polyana will play host to 2014 Winter Olympics and accommodates 9,500 skiers per day.
Venice Carnival, attended by 30,000 visitors per day, is full of feasts and fanfare while Japan’s Mount Fuji, which is 12,388 feet high, is ranked third among the most exotic vacation destination worldwide. The visitors can enjoy two-day climb as there are huts available on the halfway up.
Fourth ranked is Cape Point which is a mountainous and scenic landform that runs north-south for about thirty kilometres at the extreme southwestern tip of the African continent in the Republic of South Africa. This place offers you a rare opportunity to swim with great white sharks.
The next destination takes you to Esa’ala Caves - the sanctum location in Papua New Guinea.
These places offer unique activities appealing to adventure seekers interested in swimming with sharks in South Africa, dog sledding in Alaska, and volcano climbing in Mauna Lao are a few of the featured exotic vacation destinations.
Other top picks included large events such as the SXSW Conference and Festivals, historical landmarks like the Ruins in Macchu Picchu. McCarthy in Alaska also offers you adventure in snow as it’s surrounded by more mountains and glaciers than anywhere else in Alaska.
A visit to Mauna Loa gives you an unprecedented opportunity to climb on a volcano. Located in Hawaii, nearly 3.4 million tourists climbed up the picturesque 13,680-feet high mountains. Mauna Loa is the largest volcano on Earth in terms of volume and area covered and one of five volcanoes that form the Island of Hawaii.
Last but now the least is Brazilian Carnival – party like it’s the seventeenth century. Originated in 1641, the festival is attended by 700,000 visitors.
