Pink Places

May 16, 2015


Growing up I was never in love with the colour pink. If I had to pick a favourite colour I would almost always choose black or white ( I swear I had a fun childhood), however, over the years this fun shade has grown on me immensely! Although I am not a stark pink clothing wearer- the subtle pastel shades of it make me swoon like no other! What makes me swoon even more though? Seeing the colour pink in magical spaces and places around the world. If you love pink too- check out the list below as I round up some of the best places to see it!
Shibazakura, Japan
The Daydream Diaries Places to see pink
Shibazakura Hill, a beautiful spring sightseeing spot located in Hitsujiyama Park, overlooks the entire city area of Chichibu. About 400,000 moss phloxes spread over the ground and with Mount fiji in the background on clear days, the whole thing seriously looks fake! The best time to see the five different kinds of Pink Moss flowers, usually takes place in May. This is what my dreams are mad of!

Lake Hillier, Australia

Lake Hillier is a pink-colored lake on Middle Island, the largest of the islands and islets that make up the Recherche Archipelago, Western Australia. It’s about 600 metres long and is surrounded by a rim of sand and eucalyptus trees. It’s still a mystery as to why the lake is pink but scientists speculate that it comes from a dye created by bacteria that lives in the salt crusts. Bacteria, doesn’t sound so safe right? But surprisingly it is! It’s totally fine for us humans to take a dip

Jaipur, India
Daydream Diaries Travel Blog- 5 Places to see pink
Since the nickname of Jaipur is actually called “pink city”, I think its safe to say this place should be included. This magical city is filled with pink palaces, forts and incredilble arts and crafts. My jaw was continiously dropped when I was there and I felt like I was living in Barbie’s dream palace.

Red Lotus Sea in Udon Thani, Thailand
Not sure who decided to name this place but they definitely were a little colour blind because it is deinfitely filled with pink flowers- not read! Located 45km south east from the Udon Thani ring road near the Lao border, this unique natural attraction is home to millions of lotus flowers. And I thought the lake from The Notebook was the best thing ever. NOPE! Best time to visit? February. It is the only month of the year when the flowers cover the entire surface!

Lake Retba, Senegal
Daydream Diaries Milkshake Lake
Hey strawberry milkshake fans out there- if you find yourself in north-west Africa you’ll find a lake that is visually as delicious. It’s high salt concentration allows people to float easily and plenty of workers collect the salt daily to mainly be used to preserve fish. Its colour is most visible during dry season (November-June) and less during rainy season (July-October).
