Socotra Island in Yemen might be the most odd-looking place on earth. At least it is not inhabitant. You could end up in this place and not believe this is earth. The tree trunks are big, water is blue and green at places, it has ridges you have never seen before and there are holes in places you wouldn’t imagine.
