The short description of this island speaks for itself – “the most alien-looking place on Earth.” Due to its intense isolation from the rest of the world, Socotra Island is a place where heavy speciation (the process through which new species arise) occurred and can be visible with even the naked eye. The place is so far removed from the rest of the planet that there have crazy alien-trees growing there. Although there are 40,000 people living there and there are only two roads, you could still rent a car there.
