1. Strippers World a shop dedicated to the stripping business



Almost certainly the least classy shop in Australia, this grim-looking dive specializes in selling items of clothing that strippers might like to wear. Which, instead of tasteful, sensual lingerie generally means cheap satin-effect undies with crude words for female genitalia emblazoned across the front. Throw in some ludicrously high heels, the odd bit of dominatrix gear and the sort of skirt that your father would refer to as a belt, and it's a delightful display. But let's face it, it's kind of cool that there's a shop just for strippers, isn't it?

2. Deyrolle the creepiest taxidermy shop in Paris



If you want to buy a stuffed elk, a frog's skeleton, a Goliath beetle as big as a fist, or a Stone Age axe head, where would you go? For people living in Paris that would never be a question, for they have Deyrolle: Unofficially the world's creepiest, yet strangely enchanting Taxidermy Shop, on their doorstep. The shop was opened in 1831 by entomologist Emile Deyrolle, and since then an enormous variety of animals have been lugged through the front door by customers ranging from budding young scientists through to overly-wenkghy collectors. On entering the entomology room of the shop, the public come face to face with creatures of all sizes: butterflies, rabbits, foxes, geese, elks… but to turn the creepiness up a notch a number of the larger animals have been dressed in human clothing.

3. Muara Kuin Floating Market a market where you shop by boat



Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan, (Indonesia) is the city known as the city of a thousand rivers. This city has a uniqueness that is very interesting. Here, there is a traditional market that is better known as Muara Kuin Floating Market, located in the Barito river waters at the mouth of the river Muara Kuin. The traders bring a variety of materials by using jukung (small boats used by the public).   With a view to see, tourists enjoy the sightseeing. A small boat which is usually called jukung brings merchandise with vegetables, fruits, all kinds of fish and other household goods available at the floating market. As the sun begins to emerge, the market gradually begins to retreat, the merchants leave the floating market to bring the results with satisfaction.

4. Witch's Market where you can buy the weirdest kinds of amulets



This got to be one of the most bizarre street markets in South America. Located in the world's highest capital at 11,200 feet (3,400 meters), La Paz, the market over Calle Linares hosts a crowded line of unusual stores where witches, medicine women, folk doctors, astrologers, fortune tellers, and sorcerers live and work. From Llama fetuses for prosperity, to toad talismans, owl feathers and stone amulets; meet Bolivia's Witches' Market. Through prayer and a burnt offering of Llama Fetuses, witches ask the "Pachamama" --a god that many Bolivians call "Mother Earth"-- to bring henkgh, happiness, and especially prosperity.   Most Bolivian families have a dried llama fetus thrown under the foundations of their house for luck. The naked ceramic couples are to improve the sex life, rectify impotency, and increase fertility.

5. Lomé Voodoo Market a market to buy elephants' feet and leopards' heads



In Lomé, Togo (West Africa) there is a market that is not your usually fruits and vegetable stalls. They sell elephants' feet, the heads of leopards, hands of chimpanzees, hearts of horses, and any other animal part you may or may not imagine. These items are not bound for the cooking pot; these are objects for traditional medicine. Ground up and drunk, swallowed or rubbed on the skin, they are said to cure a multitude of illnesses. Traditional voodoo priests and medicine men will administer the potions. The animal parts come from all over West Africa, and so do the customers.

6. Freitag's Container Shop a shop made out of recycled containers



Swiss company Freitag is responsible for making some of the most fashionable bags on the market, and not just because they look good - these bags are made from recycled materials, with an average Freitag bag consisting of a truck-tarp body and seatbelt strap. In 2006, for their flagship free way shop in Zurich, the Freitag brothers decided to stick with this environmentally friendly stance and built a store from 17 rusty shipping containers, and it looks surprisingly inviting. At 26 metres in height the store offers quite a view from the top, one of the reasons why the brothers also decided to install a telescope at the summit in order for customers to take in the scenery, mostly consisting of a constant stream of trucks passing by.
