5.SOCOTRA ISLAND , YEMEN
This island is closer to the Somalia than Yemen in a fact , and the island was considered as the one of very isolated island in the world. The long geological isolation of Socotra creates an unique and spectacular flora , and the landscape creates a “not earth” feeling thing when you arrived there. Dragon Blood’s tree was the famous one of Socotra. Actually this island is not an usually day place for traveller due to recent politic condition in Yemen , so maybe we can save it for later!
6.GIZA PYRAMID , EGYPT
What’s the famous tomb in the world and everybody craving to see it? Pyramid is the answer. Pyramid is an Ancient tomb for Egyptian Pharaohs , its’ shape , mysteries , and historical background make it unique than your ordinary tomb back in your country! It was built at least 2000 – 3000 years ago and it still stand today , if you still think this thing is not magnificent then i guess there’s something wrong with you! But again , due to the politic circumstance recently in Egypt , you need to stay safe and get a lot information about the place , you don’t want your car being bazooka by terrorist huh?
