Hi all,
I came across a photo from an Island near Japan which made me think - wow, that looks like a great place to go photo hunting (even though I live in Israel :)).

Any way, it suddenly occured to me maybe we could make a list of places like this.
Here are the rules for which a location must be true too in order to qualify as a Exotic location that sounds Awesome:


  1. Unknown to the public. A place where you are unlikely to find many tourists.
  2. Out of your way- don't add to the list a place which is a 4 hour ride from your house. I'm talking about places that to get to them you would need to travel days. (I know the internet is world wide, but I'm guessing 95% of people here are either European or American)
  3. Special & challenging.
Ok, here is my frist place for the list:

Yakushima Forest (external link)

Here (external link) is a set of photo by Tommy Oshirma from the forest.

It simply looks awsome- a whole forest where there will be very little tourism (if any) & it would be a challenge to keep your camera working in such a wet environment.

well being in Canada I have to do my national duty and mention

Come By Chance, Newfoundland

then there is

Dildo, Newfoundland which is close to South Dildo

I am not even going to bother with Australia.

All depend on what you call exotic as well.

Conception Harbour?
South Dildo?
I wonder what Froynd would have to say about these names? Lol.

Could you guys include links or photos to illustrate what makes these places special?

Places I've gone that are high on the list:

1) Parc Nacionale des Oiseaux de Djoudj, on the border of Senegal and Mauritania in West Africa. Probably the best place to watch birds in the entire world.

2) Bolgatanga, Paga, and Bongo in northern Ghana --very out of the way -- cool architecture, very interesting landscape (boulders and baobab trees), great people

3) The Peruvian Amazon -- I've been to the northeast part in Loreto province. Nothing like it.

4) The Lofoten Islands in Norway, north of the Arctic Circle. Mountains rising right out of the Arctic Ocean with tiny little fishing villages in them.

5) Fiordland National Park, New Zealand. Could this be the best scenery on the planet?

6) Canyonlands National Park, southeastern Utah. Could this be the best scenery on the planet?


Canon 5D Mark IV, 24-105L II, 17 TS-E f/4L, MPE 65, Sigma 50 f/1.4, Sigma 85 f/1.4, 100 f/2.8L, 135 f/2L, 70-200 f/4L, 400 L
Film gear: Agfa 8x10, Cambo 4x5, Noblex 150, Hasselblad 500 C/M
