Sometimes we get tired of the same old travel experience and the same ole checklist of museums, landmarks and tours. Instead, every now and again, we're more inclined to experience quirky things when on holiday, whether it's an offbeat café or an unusual attraction. The kind that will send us home with plenty of stories to tell.

You'll be pleased to know that there are lots of weird and wonderful things to see and do in the world; a plethora of alternative experiences waiting to be enjoyed. You just have to know where to look. Which is why we're here - to help you enjoy a quirkier holiday. A tour of a nuclear bunker? Sure thing. A visit to a church made of bones? You can do that.

Discover, for example, where the oddest places are to grab a beer in cities like Amsterdam or Tokyo. Find out where you can join in with the weirdest Christmas traditions all around the world.
