12 Incredibly Colorful Places in the World
Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Kitakyushu, Japan
Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Kitakyushu, Japan
Despite the online popularity of photos of the Wisteria Tunnel in this Japanese garden, the private Kawachi Fuji gardens are one of Japan’s best-kept secrets. The gardens are located in Fukuoka Prefecture in Kyushu. They are home to 150 trees and 22 different varieties of wisteria. To get there you have to pay an entrance fee of 300-1000 yen, depending on the time of year. The best time to visit the gardens is April and May with the annual Wisteria festival, which is held in late April.
Canola Flower Fields in Yunnan, China
These yellow canola flowers (also known as rapeseed flowers) bloom in early spring, turning a small county Luoping in Yunnan into golden ocean. These flowers not only attract people. Luoping is also a national center for the bees breeding and honey production.
Morning Glory Pool in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
The colors in this thermal pool were more scrutinized than pink hue of the Hillier Lake. The scientists found that they are formed by bacterial colonies lining its walls. Sometimes, after a strong seismic activity in the area, the pool begins to erupt like a geyser.
Hitachi Seaside Park in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan
Hitachi Seaside Park occupies an area of 470 districts. It is most famous for ” Nemophila Harmony” (Nemophila means Baby Blue Eyes), a huge flower festival, which takes place in May, when 4.5 ml of clear blue flowers bloom on the hills. The park is also home to 170 species of tulips, over a million daffodils, and many other flowers.
Fly Geyser, Northern Nevada
Fly Geyser is an accidental anthropogenic phenomenon, a product of unsuccessful drilling in the 1960s, which began erupting dissolved minerals. Over the years these minerals have accumulated the required volume to form distinctive rainbow pillars of the geyser. Unfortunately, it is located on a private property (but this does not stop people from blogging on how to find it).
Sagano Bamboo Forest at Arashiyama, Kyoto, Japan
Arashiyama (or Storm Mountain, the so-called mountain opposite the river Ōi) is defined as a Historic Site and a Place of Beauty in the Japanese sights classification system. It is located on the western outskirts of Kyoto.
Rainbow Mountains of China, Southwest China
Rainbow Mountains of China occupy an area of nearly 300 square miles. They are formed by geological processes that are unique to China. In 2010, these forms of relief were listed as a World Heritage Site.
Hillier Lake on Middle Island in Western Australia
There is no consensus about why this lake is pink, but some hypotheses indicate the presence of the dye produced by bacteria in the water, or red colonies of bacteria living in salty crusts lake. The water remains pink even if you collect it into the bottle. So it’s not just a trick of the light.
Tulip Fields in the Netherlands
Dutch area Duin-en Bollenstreek (Dune area and polders in Dutch) is known as the main producer of tulips in the world. About 3 billion tulips are grown each year. The best time to see the tulips is the period from late March to early May.
Antelope Canyon in Arizona
Antelope Canyon is located in northern Arizona, to the south-west of Havasu Falls. It is formed by flash floods, tearing through the sandstone. The name of the canyon is actually translated as “the place where water runs through rocks” from the Navajo language.
Panjin Red Beach in China
Panjin Red Beach is located in delta of the Liaohe River. This coast is home to vast quantities of algae, which grow well in salty alkaline soil. Although the algae is green for the most part of the year, it is strikingly turned red in fall.
Takinoue Park in Hokkaido, Japan
This park of an area of 2.5 acre is famous by its shibazakura (Pink Moss), which grows there and blooms in May and June. In fact, there is a special Pink Moss Festival, which takes place in Hokkaido every year.
