Everyone has heard of the Seven Wonders of the World, but what about other amazing sights? Here are six other wonders that are dazzling, exciting, and unique.

Glowworm Caves, New Zealand
The glowworm is uncommon in New Zealand. Thousands of these tiny creatures radiate unmistakable luminescent light creating a starry illusion. A glowworm is a type of insect in the larvae stage. By using bioluminescence, glowworms can attract food and burn off waste. These creatures live in the Waitomo Glowworm Caves because they can only survive in dark, damp places. Also, in the cave, wind cannot dry out or tangle them.
Fairy Pools, Isle of Skye
If you are hiking near Glen Brittle Forest in Scotland, then a great place to visit is the Fairy Pools. Take a dip in the crystal clear waters and relax. The Fairy Pools are part of a stream running off of the Cuillin Mountains. The mountains are full of vividly colored pools of often almost still water, completed with several waterfalls. But be warned, the temperatures in the pools are very cold!

Zhangye Danxia landform in Gansu, China
This mountain range stands out because of its unique coloration. The unusual colors of the rocks are the result of red sandstone and mineral deposits being laid down over 24 million years.

Sea of Stars on Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives
The Sea of Stars is an extremely popular tourist destination. The sea reflects the stars in the sky. The glowing in the dark is generally a natural phenomenon that is very rare. There are bioluminescent plankton in the water which causes a beautiful “sea of stars” to form. If you walk down the beach at night even the pressure of walking is enough to make your footprints blue!
Tunnel of Love in Klevan, Ukraine
This sight almost seems like it came straight out from a fairy tale. The leafy arches were created naturally. Also, train tracks run through the whole tunnel making the place even more special. The locals love this magical place.
Enchanted Well at Chapada Diamantina in Bahia, Brazil
The Enchanted Well is in Chapada Diamantina, a Brazillan national park. This giant sunken pool is 120 feet deep and the water is so transparent that  ancient rocks and tree trunks are visible on the bottom. If you go to the well when the sun is just right, you will see light come through a crack. It will create a stunning blue light.

These six other wonders are sure to make any trip an adventure. But make sure to explore other places too, you never know what adventures may be in store for you.
Have fun sightseeing!
