No matter where in the world you are, there are always unique adventures waiting to happen at every corner - from staying in a capsule hotel in Japan, or going on a hot air balloon in Turkey. If you've got a passion for travel and are in search of interesting experiences that will amaze you, these are 10 things you need to try at least once in your life!
Staying in a Capsule Hotel in Japan
When you visit a capsule hotel, you'd think the future is already here because these hotels resemble the ones we see in the best science fiction movies. This unique and innovative hotel was created in the city of Osaka all the way back in 1979! Instead of traditional rooms, this hotel has tiny cubicles with a mattress and a pillow. There's enough space to lie down and maybe sit upright but you can't do much else - and there's definitely no room to share. Nevertheless, this stay will make you feel like you're living in the year 3000 and it's definitely a must-try. Warning: if you're claustrophobic, you may want to skip on this one.
Hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia
This historical region of Turkey has a breathtaking landscape that you can discover aboard a hot air balloon! You'll be floating slowly amongst the clouds, noise-free and surrounded by tranquility. Göreme National Park is the preferred place to go on this ride because of its crumbly earth pyramids, called "fairy chimneys," that rise from the ground. The perfect time to witness this surreal view from above is at dawn. That way you can rise up with the sun and see how it's light completely transforms the ground beneath you. Shades of pink, orange and blue mix together and create the ideal backdrop for this gorgeous place.
Insect tasting in Thailand
Thailand is nothing without its busy, overcrowded marketplaces that are filled with thousands of hawkers waiting eagerly for their customers. You'll be surprised by the things you will see, but we recommend that you try some of those bizarre treats. You'll see vendors selling crispy crickets, grasshoppers, ants and bamboo caterpillars and those are just for the beginners. For those with a brave heart, and stomach, there are cooked creepy crawlies like spiders and scorpions. These goods are all fried to a crisp which makes it much easier to stomach. How many of these weird foods will you try?
Train ride on the Trans-Siberian Railway
Do you love period dramas or stories that take place in old locomotive trains? Then this experience is tailor made for you. This magnificent train will take you through the Trans-Siberian Railway and it has been active since 1903. The ride starts in Moscow and runs 9289 kilometers east to Vladivostok. If you're going for the full ride, it'll take a week to reach the final destination, however you can get off at any of the 157 stops. The most incredible part about this long train ride is that you'll be travelling through seven different time zones. How amazing!
Getting hitched in Las Vegas

In the heart of the Nevada desert there are plenty of opportunities for unusual experiences, we can't guarantee that all of them are for you but some are definitely worth your time. You can cruise the artificial canals of the city on a Venetian gondola and if you feel adventurous, you can try your luck with gambling in the casinos.
