There are many interesting lines, borders and passes around the world that tourists find interesting. This Snapshot is a listing of all those attractions which must be in your bucket list when you visit any of these destinations next time.
1. Equator, Quito, Equador
The Equator is the latitudinally the longest imaginary line on the surface of the earth, diving the globe into two equal halves – the Northern and the Southern hemispheres. The Equator is a line where there are no change of seasons. One of the countries through which the Equator passes is Equador. There is a point on this country at the city of Quito, where the world is divided into two halves, and is known as Mitad del Mundo, literally translating to ‘middle of the world’. The Tourism department of the country has made sure that this point is as tourist friendly as possible and has developed it into an interesting travel destination. The point is situated in a park, where one has to pay $2 as entry fees. Inside the park there is the Ethnographic Museum atop which there are breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains.
