Trick or Treat! Want To Visit These Disgusting Destinations?
It’s that trick or treat time of year – and these destinations are a bit of both. On one hand there’s beautiful beaches and gleaming cities. But around the corner you could stumble into stinky mud, rat-infested temples, creepy bone buildings and other Halloween horrors.

TREAT: Less adventurous gourmands should tuck into spicy curries, steaming noodle soups and exotic papayas and green mango - without a creepy crawly in sight.
4 Czech Republic

How to get there
5 Rajasthan, India
TREAT: The state of Rajasthan is probably more famous for the Pink City of Jaipur where you can visit the intricate Hawa Mahal royal palace and the astounding Jantar Mantar, a collection of architectural astronomical instruments.
How to get there
TREAT: Once you get over the smell, this region is full of wonders - bubbling volcanic pools, shooting geysers, redwood forests and fast-flowing waterfalls. It's an enticing contribution to New Zealand's incredible scenery.
TREAT: Once you've got rid of your gum you can grab a Starbucks in the city where that coffee phenomenon started and scale the Space Needle that towers above the city.

TREAT: The gardens of Jardin Majorelle provide an oasis from Marrakech's bustling souks. Wander shaded pathways lined with exotic palms and cacti, and sit beside flowing fountains, all accented with a brilliant blue backdrop.

TREAT: Stay above ground if you'd rather celebrate Paris' romantic side with fine dining, chic boulevards and galleries full of Impressionist art.
10 Cape Town
TREAT: Far more fragrant options in Cape Town include delicious dining in scenic surrounds at the V&A waterfront or a cable car ride up to the summit of iconic Table Mountain.
