The Best Vacation Destinations for Hunting Mythical Creatures

Shaunacy Ferro

The Loch Ness Monster isn’t the only mythical creature you could spot while traveling. But where do you go to find a Yeti? Or, for that matter, the “lightning bird” of Zulu myth?

Expedia mapped out some of the best travel locations to explore mythical creatures around the world, putting together a bucket list for anyone who goes on vacation hoping to capture a photo that will land them the cover of the National Enquirer.

The map features 15 mythical creatures, including descriptions of the folklore surrounding these unreal beasts. Each entry guides you to the best places to go to learn about—and maybe even see—Bigfoot or Ninki-Nanka, a crocodile-giraffe-horse that is said to inhabit the swamps of Gambia. Because this is Expedia, you can also find hotels and flights that will take you deep into vampire territory or straight to Loch Ness.

Safe travels, and don’t forget your camera!
