5. Devil's Pool
It's touted as the world's most dangerous pool, but despite its reputation, Devil's Pool has become a hot spot for tourists. This natural body of water is located at the edge of Victoria Falls on Livingstone Island, Zambia.

Unlike other movie theaters, the Archipelago Cinema, located on the shoreline of Yao Noi, Thailand, was specially created for the Film on the Rocks Yao Noi Festival, organized by Tilda Swinton and director Apichatpong Weerasethakul.

Nestled on the remote Thai island of Kood, the Soneva Kiri resort boasts 42 resort villa and 21 private residences spanning 150 acres of beach and tropical rainforest.
