From a Suicide Forest to North Korea, here are the most disturbing locations on our planet.
Thinking of taking a late holiday this year? Well even though the following locations are among the creepiest places on Earth, you’ve got to admit that you’re a little curious to see them for yourself. Camping in the Suicide Forest or visiting a city made desolate following Chernobyl won’t exactly be the romantic getaway you and your other half were looking for, but they’d make for a far more interesting story for the folks back home than the tales you’d tell following a sunny weekend in a villa in Spain.
Scroll through the gallery below to view the top 10 creepiest places on Earth that we still kind of want to visit.

The Body Farm
Sometimes we have to do some pretty disgusting things for science, but typically we don’t make them vacation spots. Studying the decomposition of the human body can give researchers lots of knowledge useful in the fields of medicine, forensics and more. But how do you watch a human body rot in real time? Well, you go to the body farm on the campus of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. The 2.5-acre plot of land is surrounded by a razor wire fence and at any time features multiple bodies laid out to decompose in various positions. Over 100 corpses are donated to the Body Farm every year – maybe you could be one of them!
The settling place of despicable runaway Nazi doctor Joseph Mengele, the area reports 18x more twins than anywhere else in the country. Strange? Well, not when you learn that Hitler’s trusted aide was an experimental whack job with a God complex and an obsession with twins…
