Perhaps decades ago, tourism is limited to hanging out in the beach, or literally “touring” around a place you’ve never been. But now tourism gets more physical, more involving, and more exhilarating.

Storm Chasing Tourism

Storm Chasing Tourism is still considered a relatively small market by comparing the influx of tourists, but it was gaining popularity. I, for one, was culling my date for which I will sign up for it.

Tourists pay a storm chasing company to experience a close encounter with the tornados. Of course, the company will provide experts in the field and necessary equipment but there is no warrant of safety. It is for that reason tourists have to sign up for a consent form before getting to the action.

Although there is no guarantee that the team will spot a storm, it just increases the pleasure of the actual rendezvous with the storm.

Paranormal Tourism

Paranormal has been my interest ever since I remember of existing. I have watched numerous scary movies and listened to sleep-depriving horror stories. What do I get out of it? The experience of being scared. Yeah, people seek that.

Paranormal tourism is simply checking into a haunted hotel, house, or any place to feel the thrill of the unseen. These things are unexplained satisfyingly but people desire to extend their experiences to beyond the physical.

Which tourism are you more likely to pay for?

Dolls are meant to incite children’s imagination. They play with them as if they’re actual beings. And that is exactly what makes dolls menacing for adults. They look as if they’re alive with sinister intentions.

La Isla de las Munecas” is a tourist destination in Mexico. It hangs mutilated and destroyed dolls around the island. The mere photos of the place radiate darkness that implants grim into those who sees it. I imagine the experience of being in the island, a poison to my grappling soul.

The legend started with a drowned girl haunting the island’s lone inhabitant, Don Julian Santana. The girl’s doll collections started floating in the canal. In order to subdue the girl and liberate the island from evil, Don Julian took the dolls and hung them in the trees of the island.

For him, it seems like fetching dolls’ parts and grotesque bodies is not enough. He traded his vegetables and fruits he grew himself for more dolls.

In 2001, Don Julian died by drowning, in the same canal as the girl died! Many believed that the dolls took over the island. Visitors claim that the dolls whisper to them.

Would you dare yourself to visit this island?
