D2P4. Elephant Kingdom in Chonburi, Thailand

4. Elephant Kingdom in Chonburi, Thailand

Goodness, this sounds like some kind of enchanted Disneyland attraction, doesn’t it? But with fewer friendly cartoon mice and a whole lot of dangerous…um…crocodiles. Yeah, we were thinking that sentence would end with “elephants” too. Anyway, the crocodiles are free to roam the waters and will even leap up and snap their jaws as the tourists feed them meat from a small semi-closed raft. Some of the tourists will even tease the hungry crocs by dangling the meat out and then bringing it back at the last second. It’s been said that trolls are particularly delicious.

3. Sinabung Volcano, Indonesia

Interested in witnessing a real volcanic eruption? Fine with the idea that the next unpredictable eruption could straight up murder you? Then feel free to put Sinabung Volcano on the Indonesian island of Sumatra on your itinerary. In 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, eruptions covered entire villages in ash and ejected deadly clouds of volcanic gas into the atmosphere. The next violent eruption could come later today for all we know.
