The Craziest Theme Parks Throughout Asia
For many years, theme parks have been popping up all over the world. They can provide great entertainment for families who want to spend time together without having the burden falling to parents to entertain their children. But some theme parks are more exotic and unusual than others.
Penis Park, South Korea
If you ever find yourself around the spectacular coast of Sinnam, South Korea, you might want to make a small detour to visit Penis Park. It will be an unforgettable experience.
A popular Korean legend tells the story of a hardworking fisherman who left his beautiful virgin girlfriend waiting for him on the rocks while he caught fish in the sea. A large and unexpected storm hit and killed the woman while she waited for him.
After her death, the villagers were unable to catch fish. They believed she haunted the waters.
In order to please the virgin, the fishermen surrounded the whole cliffside region with hundreds of different phallic models.
The park today contains giant sculptures as well as sexual icons, cultural art, and a history of the fishing village.
Kingdom of the Little People, China
This controversial attraction has gained a significant level of notice around the world, for both good and bad reasons.
In this Chinese park, all staff members are required to be less than 129 cm (4.23 feet) in height. These employees perform for tourists – singing, dancing, and performing both traditional and modern plays and ballets. The performers pretend to live in the small specialty houses found throughout the park; however, the truth is that they share dormitory style accommodations a small distance away.
Many critics are against the park, claiming it isolates these people from society at large. Many of the staff, though, say that they like living with people who are similar to them and that prior to working at Kingdom of the Little People, they were unable to find work.
Yunessun Spa Resort, Japan
This unique spa resort in Japan offers guests a relaxing dip in baths filled with red wine, coffee, green tea, sake, and of course, water.
What’s the point you ask? Well, each liquid has different health claims. Red wine is said to rejuvenate the body. Sake is said to remove freckles and age spots. Green tea can boost the immune system and improve skin health. So take your pick.
