Not many people put much attention to trees. It might be due to trees being so familiar and common. We can see various trees around our neighborhood. However, there are several destinations where you get to see unusual trees with their own unique features that make them look even more beautiful to appreciate. Unique trees and plants are spread around the world but not many people are interested enough to find out.
Finding destinations with the most beautiful and unique trees and forest
Trees and everything the forest has inside have their own stories since they have been living for so long that sometimes even longer than human do. Trees are often visualized or referred to wisdom and intelligence. In some cultures, trees are seen as something sacred and holy. So here are most recommended travel destinations where you get to see amazing trees and forests:
Bamboo forest, Japan
Bamboo is a plant and is not technically a tree according to its biological nature. It is in fact grass but it is hard to see it as one because of its features. It has shaft and long, narrow leaves spurting from it. When you get inside a forest with bamboos, there is a sense of serenity and mystery. One of the most beautiful travel destinations to find bamboo is Bamboo Forest which is located in Japan. It is situated near Kyoto and not hard to find. It is one of the most famous bamboo forest in Japan.
Dragon’s Blood Trees, Socotra Island
Such a unique name for a tree, this is one of the most interesting object to see during your visit to Socotra Island situated on the Yemeni archipelago. The name of the tree comes from the red sap it produces. This unique flora has been growing undisturbed due to the island’s separation from the mainland about 20 million years ago. There are 37 percent of plant species that are only found in this island, not anywhere else in the world.
Rainbow Eucalyptus, Indonesia
Rainbow Eucalyptus can be found in the rainforests in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and the Philippines. The thing that makes this tree look unique is the bright coloration on the tree’s bark. It peels off to show beautiful shades of orange, purple, pink, and green. The colors are pretty and might remind you of rainbow with how contrast they are to the color around them.
Wisteria Tunnel, Japan
Again, Japan is home to such beautiful flora. Wisteria itself is a type of flowering vine that can be adjusted into beautiful shapes. In Japan, there is Wisteria Festival called Fuji Matsuri in late April or early May. It is where you get to see the 330-foot-long wisteria tunnels of Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Kitakyushu. You also get to see the infamous wisteria tree of Ashikaga Flower Park in Tochigi in Honshu. In these places, you will be presented with colorful and beautiful spectacle blooming from nature. You can put this in your bucket list for your next travel plan.
