Voodoo world travel

The Worlds Top VOODOO Locations!

As an advocate for all things Witchy, Spooky, Haunted or New Age, I thought I’d randomly search for the best Voodoo locations around the world to visit!

The History

Voodoo originated from tribal religions in West Africa. During the 17th century, this area in particular was at risk from slave traders and many Africans were captured, forced into slavery and brought to locations throughout the Americas. Along with their culture, Voodoo was also brought to the mainstream and is still widely practised today. There is thought to be over 50 million Voodoo followers of this Religion which encompasses everything from healing to philosophy.

The Locations

1. Benin and Toga – West Africa

Believed to host the worlds largest voodoo market, table after table is heaped up to the brim with animal bones, tusks and horns ready to be ground up into potions. Powdered chameleon is sold to boost mental abilities among an abundance of stretched and dried animal furs. Local priests are all available to assist in everything from healing, love issues and life direction.

2. New Orleans

Also known as Louisiana Voodoo, there is even a museum and a tour dedicated to this religion. The core belief  is the recognition of one God who does not interfere in people’s daily lives and spirits that preside over daily life. You’re more likely to find t-shirts, love potions and tarot readings and of course, the infamous voodoo dolls than animal bones and leopard heads!

The fundamental view is that everything is spirit, even humans who inhabit the viable world. The famous carnival here is also dominated by influences of Voodoo.

Bangladesh – The TOP of my hitlist!

I must admit, I was pretty ignorant when it came to Bangladesh situated in the Bay Of Bengal and is one of the worlds most populated countries.

Like most kids living in the UK in the 80’s, it made headlines due to the  frequent monsoon flooding’s resulting in mass starvations. Thank god I educated myself and got in touch with a local tour group – (Tour Guide BD) who are front lining Bangladesh’s tourism scene at the moment and pushing ot to the forefront as the NEW go to destination. Iceland has to be knocked of the top at some point after all!

The Diversity

Over 700 rivers intertwine, hazily making their way to the Bay of Bengal through lush vegetation in multiple hues of green. Fields are consumed by thousands of vibrant yellow flowers. Thick mangrove forests offer little respite from the tropical heat and tigers  haunt Sundarbans national parks.

A religious diversity of Christian, Buddhist, Hindi and Muslim, its no surprise that 2 of the UNESCO heritage sites also reside here in Parhapur and Bagerhat. Also home to a 15th century mosque.

Bangladesh, you’ve completely bowled me over. Sign me up please!
