World’s Most ‘WTF’ Tourist Attractions

If you enjoy a healthy dose of the strange, the bizarre and the downright grotesque, here’s a list of tourist attractions from around the world that will make you say, “WTF?”

Known as the “Island of the Dolls,” this small island south of Mexico City is supposedly haunted by the spirit of a girl who mysteriously drowned there. The first doll was put there out of respect for the girl, but hundreds more have since joined it and are said to whisper to each other at night.

This cozy sounding spot greets visitors with a sign that reads, “Welcome to Hell!” and has sculptures depicting sinners in various levels of Buddhist hell. This delightful attraction shows the damned being boiled, hung and eaten by dogs.

UFO Landing Port, U.S.A

Bob Tohak believes so fervently in aliens that he built a landing platform for them on top of his welding shop. You can spot this 42ft tall scrap metal structure alongside the highway just east of Green Bay, Wisconsin, bearing a sign that warns, “we’re not the only ones.”
