If you've watched a lot of sci-fi and fantasy movies, you've probably been amazed by some spectacular sceneries and landscapes that were included in them. Most people think that you can only see such places on screen but there are actually surreal places that exist in the world. Here are the top 3 bizarre places that people thought never existed but did.

Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland

According to All That Is Interesting, this surreal and bizarre place is very well-known for its polygon-shaped columns that form a honeycomb pattern. Giant's Causeway was named the UKs Best Heritage Attraction during the British Travel Awards. This natural wonder is a result of a volcanic eruption millions of years ago and it embodies a richness of mythical, local and natural history.

Mount Roraima, Venezuela

Located in South America, Mount Roraima is the highest mountain of the Pakaraima mountain chain. This plateau has an area of 31 square kilometers and includes the borders of Guyana, Brazil and Venezuela. Atlas Obscura stated that this natural wonder inspired Arthur Conan Doyle's novel "The Lost World" because of its unique landscape and ecosystem.

The mountain contains some of the oldest geological formations that date back to billions of years ago. It is also endemic to a fascinating carnivorous plant species, the Heliamphora Nutans. This is the reason why Mount Roraima is included in the top 3 bizarre places that actually existed. If you think that Pandora from "Avatar" didn't exist, think again.

Dragonblood Trees Of Socotra, Yemen

The island of Socotra is the only place where you can find the famous Dragon tree. The bizarre features of this tree give the island an out-of-this-world feeling and it's like you're on a different planet. The isolation of the island from mainland Arabia has given the place an abundance of unique flora. Almost 37% of Socotra's plant species can't be found anywhere else in the world.

If you're some who loves to travel, then why not put these top 3 bizarre places on your bucket list. It's definitely an experience you'll never forget.
