25 Places You Wish You Could Go Visit But Can’t

Posted by on October 15, 2013

While most people are happy just taking the occasional trip to the beach, there are those of us that long for something more…an adventure. And although most places on Earth are accessible to the determined traveler, some places are just better off left alone. From top secret government facilities to villages destroyed by radiation, these are 25 places you wish you could go visit but can’t.


Lascaux Caves in Southwest France


These 20,000 year old cave paintings were being damaged by exhaled CO2 from tourists so the French Government shut them down.


North Sentinel Island, Andaman Islands


Inhabited by between 50 and 400 Sentilese who tend to rain arrows down on the heads of foreign amabassadors trying to make contact, they have now been protected by the Indian Government.


Ise Grand Shrine, Japan


In existence since 4BC only priests and priestesses of the royal family are allowed in. Fun fact – the shrine is demolished and rebuilt every 20 years in keeping with the Shinto idea of death and rebirth.


Club 33, Disneyland


If you can pay a $25,000 initiation fee and $10,000 annually for membership then you can join Club 33, one of the world’s most exclusive and secretive dinner clubs found in the middle of the happiest place on Earth.


Metro 2, Under Moscow


Supposedly built by Stalin for the Russian Secret Service and top government officials, this rumored secret subway has never been proven to exist although people who worked on it have been interviewed.
