May 19, 2017 OTA News No Comments Email Email

With the Wonder Woman movie premiering in Singapore next month, all of us at ZUJI Singapore are focused on her dreamy place of origin – Themyscira, also known as “Paradise Island”. While Themyscira exists as a fictional island inspired by the capital of the Amazon tribe in Greek mythology, have you ever dreamt of exploring Earth’s own unique mythical-like paradise islands?

Coinciding with the recently celebrated Mother’s Day and the approaching movie premiere, there’s no better time to put on your very own Bracelet of Submission, take that leap of faith, and travel to our curated list of destinations inspired by the fantasy birth place of Wonder Woman herself.

1)     Malapascua Island, Cebu, Philippines

The mystical Malapascua Island located at the heart of Cebu is known for many things. Rumour has it that the Virgen de los Desamparados performed a miracle in the 1890s, giving it its revered status as an island for devotees to visit. Fast forward to present time, the island is recognised as a burgeoning tourist location for its coral diving at nearby shoals and its vast sandy beaches.

2)     Malta, Mediterranean Sea, Europe

Staying true to Wonder Woman’s Greek-inspired heritage, Malta, known as “Port Haven” with its timeless architecture and deep heritage, allows you to walk in her footsteps towards greatness. The country is packed with beautiful sights and monuments at every corner, including UNESCO World Heritage Sites city of Valletta and the seven Megalithic Temples of Malta.

3)     Corfu, Greece

The beautiful island of Corfu is the second largest of the Ionian Islands and carries the deepest roots of Greek mythology in its veins. The “Castle City” is popular for its unique architecture, with fortified castles dotting strategic locations across the island such as the Byzantine Gardiki Fortress and the Kassiopi Castle. Given its long and tumultuous history, visitors can delve deeper into history at the Byzantine Antivouniotissa Museum.

4)     Isla Holbox, Mexico

 

Isla Holbox is a paradise away from the city life for many. Home to a wide range of wildlife including flamingos and pelicans, the idyllic island surrounded by pristine white beaches is part of the Yum-Balam Biosphere Reserve. The island has been gaining popularity for its whale shark viewing and its delectable lobster cuisines – their main source of income is through fishing after all. It definitely pays homage to the Greek island culture up in the north.

5)     Raja Ampat, Indonesia

 

Drawing parallels to Wonder Woman’s training in the Amazonian Rainforests, Raja Ampat exists as the most diverse living library for the world’s coral reef and underwater biodiversity. It comes as no surprise that divers from all over the world visit the enormous territories made up of over 1000 islands. Rejuvenate your senses and take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city life.
