Take a tour of World's Most Bizarre Landscapes -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.

I'd like to show you the world's most bizarre landscapes.
A breath-taking creation, Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni, is unmistakably the most expansive salt flat on earth. The over 10,000 square kilometer plain, far from city life, is teeming with hotels made of salt blocks, satellite calibration stations and even a train cemetery.

Lying on the coast of Yemen, is Socotra Island, a haven of strange yet lovely plants and animals. A third of the rare life forms found here are exclusive to the island. In addition to the surprising landscape are enthralling views of the amazingly blue surrounding waters.

The region of Cappadocia in Turkey has a record of inhabitance dating to the 6th century BC. The high plateau characterized by intermittent crags creates an ideal locale for cave dwellings. The many towns situated in this region have taken advantage of the sublime natural building materials found in this semi-arid highland.

Spanning extravagantly over an approximate 350 square kilometers of land, China's Stone Forest, from afar, looks like a woodland covered with tall thin trees. They are in fact prehistoric rock formations which in addition to their classic stone pillar formations can also uncannily resemble a variety of animals and plants.

Western Egypt is home to the White Desert, so named for its irregular stark white land patterns. Though these drifts may look like snow this arid landscape is home to opulent natural chalk formations which stretch far into the horizon line.
