Things forbidden have a secret charm.

1. Snake Island - Brazil

Snake Island

Humans are forbidden from stepping foot on this island for obvious reasons. According to scientists, roughly 4000 snakes live on this 110-acre land. And these aren’t just any snakes, but the golden lancehead, which is the deadliest and the most venomous viper in the world.

2. Area 51 - USA

Area 51

Situated in Nevada, this is probably one of the most secretive places in the world. A military base, what this place is actually used for nobody knows. But the speculations range from medical experiments, experimental aircraft and weaponry to UFO and alien testing.

3. Room 39 - North Korea

North Korea may not be a place people often visit, but on the off chance someone does visit it, room 39 is off-limits. A secretive government facility, it’s where all the illegal activities take place; including counterfeiting of 100$ bills and production of drugs.

Much like USA’s Area 51, there’s a lot of speculation surrounding Moscow’s Metro 2. An underground metro system connects the Kremlin to the Federal Security Headquarters. It is often used by Russian military defense. But ask the government about Metro 2, and they deny its existence.

6. Jiangsu National Security Education Museum - China

China

This museum is off-limits to all outsiders. The only people allowed to visit the museum are Chinese nationals, so unless you were born in China, leave behind all dreams of seeing the insides of this spy museum. According to a spokesperson of the museum, foreigners aren’t allowed to enter because they don’t want sensitive spy information to be leaked outside.
